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 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


  1. 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.
  2. 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.

These looks so yummy. Do you think GF all purpose flour would work?

What kind of oats do you use? Thanks!

I have a pancake recipe VERY similar to this but will try this for easy reheat in the toaster! 🙂 the main difference is there is 1Tbs of honey if the batter coups probably add it to this batter then no need for syrup 🙂

You don’t give the number of servings for each recipe. I would need to know that so I won’t overeat. Thank you.

Thank you so much for this recipe! I made them into pancakes and topped them off with some blueberries and they were amazing! I also substituted the milk for almond milk because it was all I had in my fridge and it turned out great.


My waffle maker just isn’t very effective! This recipe works for pancakes too, for those of you who might not have a waffle maker!

Do you use baking powder or baking soda? Tablespoon?

Thank you :)! I used the right one

These are awesome! And to think that there is no sugar either. Yummy! Thank you!

Can these be made into pancakes instead? I don’t have a waffle maker. :[

I made these for my family and they turned out super yummy! I made the leap to no refined sugars for lent and after looking through your blog this is going to be easier then I thought. Almost everything here seems ” meat and potatoes, husband friendly” lol Thank you

I just made these for my family and they are delicious! Thank you for the recipe!

It’s 217 calories per waffle! Great with some peanut butter or a filling, nutritious breakfast on the go!

Thank you. I found this recipe a few weeks ago and just had the opportunity to make them. So I needed the nutritional information.
