How To Make Banana Nut Waffles

It’s so easy to “morph” a simple homemade waffle into something extraordinary.  Mix up your favorite waffle batter (homemade or store-bought mix). For each of the banana nut waffles, add a half of a banana (chopped into small pieces), and 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon to the batter. Stir to combine these ingredients.

Add 2 Tablespoons of chopped pecans and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract to walnuts to the batter. Mix it all together, and pour batter into an oiled, preheated waffle iron. Cook the banana nut waffles until they’re fully done and crispy (about 3 1/2 minutes)!

Serving The Banana Nut Waffles

Once each waffle has finished cooking, place it on serving plate. Drizzle with maple syrup (and butter, if desired). Add the other half of the banana (chopped), and additional pecans for garnish (see TIP below).  Repeat process for each additional waffle; serve and enjoy!

TIP: The pecans are especially tasty if they are lightly toasted in a dry skillet for 3-4 minutes before adding to waffle.
