I’m sure you have heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I agree. If I eat a healthy, filling breakfast and serve my family something hearty, we can hit the ground running with happy attitudes and satisfied bellies. My whole family loves banana waffles.
Healthy Banana Waffles
Bananas are such a great addition to waffles. They keep the waffles moist and add to the sweetness without all of the sugar. Throw in some cinnamon and these waffles are a total crowd pleaser.
I know how tempting it is to feed your kiddos cold cereal in the morning but whenever I do, they are begging for food in about an hour. These healthy banana waffles are made with whole wheat flour, packed with fiber, and will keep the troops full longer. That is always a win in my book.
Healthy banana waffles cook up in less than 15 minutes. Totally doable and delicious. Simply combine all of the ingredients, spray your waffle iron with cooking spray to prevent sticking, and breakfast is served.
What are healthy 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 banana 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 banana 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.
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.
