I’m usually a pancake kind of gal, but the other morning I was in the mood for some delicious waffles! I started out by dusting out my waring pro restaurant style waffle maker, following a recipe, but then quickly strayed and started adding all kinds of random ingredients. It turned out for the best: awesome grain-free, sugar-free banana waffles topped with butter and maple syrup!
Banana Waffles on the Fly
3/4 Cup almond flour
3 Tbsp coconut flour
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 tsp arrowroot
2 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 Tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
1 mega-ripe banana
3/4 cup So Delicious unsweetened coconut milk
and added the egg, coconut oil and maple syrup. I’m definitely guilty of letting brown bananas go to waste– I only eat bananas when they’re a little green, or just barely yellow, so I usually neglect them when they start to turn brown.
The waffles were great! They were kind of fally-aparty, which is why I usually make pancakes…because I hate when waffles stick to the mold and fall apart. Fally-Apartyness aside, these tasted really great! I topped mine with butter and some maple syrup…I almost wanted to whip out the peanut butter and make a banana waffle, bacon and peanut butter sandwich a la Elvis…but I refrained.
