Homemade Banana Waffles

Homemade Banana Waffles from scratch, a delicious and easy way get out of a waffle rut!

Homemade Banana WafflesHave I mentioned lately how much my husband and I love bananas?  Between the multiple banana ice creams, the banana pecan muffins, and the whole wheat banana pancakes, of course we’d make Homemade Banana Waffles.  Especially now that I keep sliced bananas in our freezer at all times to be able to whip up some Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream whenever the craving hits.  

IMG_5975-2This Banana Waffles recipe is courtesy of my mother-in-law Gail’s Book. The Book of recipes she gave to the boys. The Book that I adore not only because of the recipes and the memories it holds for my husband, but also for her footnotes.  Like for this recipe she says that it it’s not as good as the Fudge Brownie Waffles (omg I can’t wait to make these), but it’s close. Also, since this recipe calls for only the egg yolks, she says never let a good egg white go to waste, look through the book for the Meringue Kisses recipe.  So. Awesome.

So it was like a breakfast ode to both our moms!Banana WafflesAnnndd my girl Stephanie over at The Cozy Cook has been making so many amazing things with her waffle iron, I had to have one so I had just gotten this guy delivered and was sooo excited to use it.Homemade Banana WafflesAnd I love it.  Look at those waffles!Homemade Banana WafflesWith plenty of maple syrup and sliced bananas…Homemade Banana WafflesSo. freaking.

The perfect weekend brunch made at home, Banana Waffles From Scratch!
  • Soooooooooooo I’m drooling pretty good over here…. this must have been HEAVEN!!!! I think I have to get some of that syrup and do this the right way. I wonder if this recipe would be good with blueberries thrown in there too? I have tons of frozen blueberries. (And like you, tons of frozen banana slices for the same reasons you mentioned!) I was going to say that we can use the banana ice cream we make to give to the dogs too! But Sir Nigel isn’t a fruit guy, shucks. Well, more for you then! I love that you had tips on what to do with the egg whites, I hate wasting! 🙂

  • Nom nom nom! I have a very similar waffle iron and love to use it for brunches with family and friends. Why have I never made banana waffles before? Silly me! These look delicious.

  • Just thought I’d share why I looked this up and give a thanks for sharing your recipe with us! These puppies are going towards my kids lunch tomorrow and are to be sent with pb&oh between them ;).
