Banana Waffles

Remember way-back-when, when we vowed to give waffles their due respect?

And after that we made 5 more pancake recipes. (Feel free to click on those links ;))

And have you seen a single waffle recipe? No, no you have not.

But we’re trying to change, really, we are!

Starting with these Banana Waffles!

Make that ultra-fluffy-super-crispy Banana cornmeal waffles!  Seriously, with these on file, waffles have officially made their way on to our regular breakfast rotation!

Think of these as the martyrs of breakfast waffles, paving the way for future waffle recipes!

And we promise, there will be more where this one came from 🙂

Banana Waffles

DSCN4796

Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 10 min
Serves: 2

Ingredients:

2/3 c. whole wheat flour
2 tbsp cornmeal
1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 banana, mashed
1 egg, whisked
2/3 c. + 1 tbsp milk of choice
1 tbsp jam (we used strawberry)
1 tsp lemon juice

Directions:

In a medium-sized bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.  In a separate bowl, combine all the wet ingredients.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just incorporated.  Spoon the batter over your waffle iron and close the lid.  Cook for 4-5 minutes, or until waffles are firm and slightly crispy.  If you’d like an extra-crispy waffle, pop them in the toaster for a couple minutes once they’er done cooking (homemade toaster waffles FTW!)

The Understudy of Breakfasts

You love pancakes.  We love pancakes.  Everyone loves pancakes!

But you know what?

The popular, well-loved, highly sought-after breakfast staple has a sister.

And her name is waffle.

Waffles are like the Casey Afflecks, Solange Knowles, and Michael Bacons of the world.  You know who we’re talking about- the one who is equally as talented, but is never able to get out from under the shadow of their more-famous sibling.

Well today we are putting a stop to this madness, and we’re starting with chocolate cornmeal waffles.

Covered in sweet slices of banana and soaked in chocolate peanut butter sauce- with the added dollop of peanut butter, of course! 😉

Don’t let the cornmeal scare you away.  If you don’t like cornmeal, you will still love these waffles!  The cornmeal is just there to add lots of crispiness to the waffle, but you can’t actually taste it at all!

Now, all this being said, we will be the first to admit that we are not saints.  We have made several pancakes recipes before and expressed our love for them time and time again.  The fact that this is only our first waffle recipe demonstrates our lack of appreciation for the less-celebrated breakfast item.

But we are making it our goal to give waffles the spotlight they deserve!  So go dust off those waffle irons, people!  It’s time for waffles to take back breakfast! 🙂

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cornmeal Waffles

DSCN4599

Prep time: 10min
Cook time: 10min
Serves: 2

Ingredients:

1/3 c. cornmeal
1/2 c. flour
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 1/4 tsp baking powder

1 egg+ 1 egg white
1 c. milk
1 Tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract

For the Chocolate-Peanut Butter Sauce:

1 Tbsp peanut flour
1 Tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 Tbsp maple syrup
water

Directions:

Pre-heat your waffle iron.
Combine dry and wet ingredients in separate bowls. Mix the wet into the dry until just combined. Spoon/pour batter over waffle iron, making sure that you have an even covering of the entire iron. Close the lid and allow to cook for 3-4 min (you want to cook it longer to ensure that the waffle is crispy, if you like a softer waffle than 2-3min will be good enough.), or until waffle is nicely browned and crisp.
For the sauce, combine first 3 ingredients, then slowly add small amounts of water at a time, mixing thoroughly, until you have reached your desired constistancy.
Arrange waffles on your plate, top with sliced banana, peanut butter and yogurt, if desired. Pour sauce over top and enjoy!

*If you make extra or have left-over waffles, freeze them! When you want to have them again, just pop them in the toaster for a few minutes. Home-made toaster waffles=AWESOME.

Where do you stand- pancakes or waffles? We are willing to split our time between both. 😉
