Fluffy Banana Waffles

In case fluffy, crisp banana waffles weren't enough... I speckled them with chocolate chips, and topped them with sweet maple syrup, fresh bananas, and chocolate covered almond with coarse sea salt.  I'd call that a good morning.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 1 1/2 cups warm almond milk (regular milk is fine)
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted (melted butter or margarine, or vegetable oil will work)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • Optional: chocolate chips, toffee bits
  1. In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder and sugar; set aside. Preheat waffle iron to desired temperature.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites to soft peaks. Stir the milk, beaten egg yolks, coconut oil  and vanilla together in another bowl. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture; beat until blended, add banana and chocolate chips (if using) then gently fold in egg whites.  
  3. Ladle the batter into a preheated waffle iron. Cook the waffles until golden and crisp. 

  • These make great leftovers- toss two in a sandwich bag, and freeze them.  Simply pop them in a toaster, and voila! Breakfast in like 3.2 seconds :)
  • You can sub plain applesauce for some of the oil, but waffles really do need some oil to to crisp up

Yields ~12 waffles
