Healthy Banana Waffles
How are your resolutions coming? I know most of us make some resolves to do better, eat healthier, and do more or less of some things. It’s always nice to get back on track with things after the craziness the Holiday Season brings.
When I was making my resolutions I thought I’d go with a check list this year. A few things that I could do everyday and check off. Some day’s ends have more checks than others, but I’ve been trying to make sure there’s always at least one check mark on my list. This has been a great approach for me. Some days I have everything checked off, but I can’t beat myself up too much when there’s only one or two because at least that is something.
One of my resolutions was healthy eating. Healthy eating is a loose term, but I know what I expect from myself. I’m sure some of you have similar goals too, so I thought I’d share this great healthy banana waffle recipe. They are light, fluffy, and pretty darn healthy. It has plenty of fiber to fill you up and all the sweetness comes from bananas. Our whole family loved these!
What are healthier options for waffle toppings?
If you’re looking for more flavor but don’t want to use something sugary like maple syrup, you can add cinnamon, peanut butter, berries, banana slices, or even greek yogurt! There are so many options to make the waffles how you want them.
How can I store waffles?
Leftover waffles can be kept in an airtight container for 2-3 days in the fridge, or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Waffles can also be enjoyed hot or cold, so there are so many ways to eat your leftover waffles.
Can I store waffle batter?
Yes! Unused waffle batter can be kept for up to 2 days in the fridge. When you’re ready to use it, stir the batter to mix it again and it is ready.Print
This Healthy Banana Waffles Recipe makes light and fluffy waffles. It has plenty of fiber to fill you up and is naturally sweetened with bananas!
- 2 ripe bananas
- ½ cup applesauce
- 2 eggs
- 1 ½ cups milk or buttermilk
- 1 cup oats
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 T. baking powder
- ½ tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- ½ tsp. cinnamon
- Turn on your waffle iron and allow it to preheat. In a medium bowl mash the bananas with a fork until they are well mashed and make a smooth paste. Add the applesauce and eggs and whisk to combine. Add the buttermilk and combine. Add the oats, wheat flour, baking soda, salt, vanilla and cinnamon. Stir until well combined. Cook the waffles according to the manufacturer instructions for your waffle iron.
- Serve with fresh banana slices, pure maple syrup, or honey.
Be sure to use cooking spray on your waffle iron if needed. There is no oil in the recipe and they tend to stick badly in my waffle maker if I don’t spray it with cooking oil first.
