Banana Nut Waffles With Peanut Butter Maple Syrup
- 1 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour
- 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons of aluminum-free baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
- 3/4 cup of chopped walnuts or pecans
- 1/3 cup of melted coconut oil
- 3/4 cup of milk of choice, lukewarm
- 3/4 cup of overripe mashed bananas (about 2 small bananas),
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- Slices of fresh bananas
- Nuts (walnuts or pecans)
- 1/2 cup of honey roasted creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup of maple syrup
- Heat waffle iron on high heat, about one notch down from the highest setting. Preheat oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, sea salt, and nutmeg.
- Stir in the chopped walnuts or pecans.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the melted coconut oil and milk. Microwave for 30 seconds, or until the mixture is lukewarm.
- Whisk in mashed banana, egg, and vanilla extract.
- Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to over mix. Tiny lumps may remain.
- Pour batter onto the heated waffle iron. Once the waffle is deeply golden, transfer it to a cooling rack sitting on a baking sheet. Don’t stack your waffles on top of each other, or they’ll lose crispness.
- Place the baking sheet in oven to keep the waffle warm. Repeat
- In a medium microwave-safe bowl, soften/melt the peanut butter, about 20 seconds on high power. Don’t overheat it or it will scorch.
- Add the maple syrup and whisk until smooth and creamy.
- Top the waffles with bananas slices, nuts (walnuts or pecans), and the peanut butter maple syrup. Serve.
