It’s winter here in Connecticut. There’s not a lot of snow but it has been pretty darn cold.
An overly ripe banana on the counter is the perfect opportunity to make waffles.
Drizzled with pure maple syrup, these waffles will make you forget all about your nose hairs freezing when you step outside.
Chopped walnuts give the waffles a nice crunch and added protein.
Banana and Walnut Waffles
- 2 eggs
- 1 mashed ripe banana
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1/3 cup canola oil
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 firm banana and a handful of chopped walnuts (optional for serving)
Heat waffle iron.
Beat eggs in a medium bowl. Add mashed banana, oil and milk and beat until fully combined.
Add flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt to banana mixture and stir until incorporated.
Scoop batter onto the center of the hot waffle iron. (I used 1/2 cup for my waffle iron). Close lid and let cook according to your waffle iron instructions.
Serve with sliced banana and chopped walnuts. Drizzle with pure maple syrup and enjoy!
