Banana Waffles are filled with fresh banana puree for a naturally sweet flavor. This kid-friendly breakfast whips up in only 15 minutes!!
We LOVE breakfast food. We love it so much that on a weekly basis we serve up breakfast for dinner. With such busy mornings, and no time for elaborate meals, we have to whip up our favorites in the evening.
This is a win-win in our books, because it’s never too late for a plate of pancakes or a breakfast casserole!
Hubby loves him some waffles, so that is a staple in our house. While we love our buttermilk waffles, it’s fun to mix things up.
I thought I’d add some natural sweetness by mashing up bananas and adding them in the batter. The result was this batch of luscious Banana Waffles. They are borderline banana bread, part waffle, and all good!

TIPS + FAQ
Waffle Tip: The less you fuss with the batter the fluffier your waffles will be! I always let my batter sit for a few minutes to thicken before I make the waffles.
- Be sure you mix the dry ingredients separately as directed in the instructions.
- Don’t over mix. Its ok if the batter has a few lumps.
How to freeze? Freeze these waffles to be enjoyed later whether you make ahead of time or have leftovers. Place the cooked waffles on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Freeze until frozen (about 2 hours). Then, put them in an airtight freezer safe container. I usually use a Freezer Ziploc bag. The waffles will stay good for up to 4 months.
How to store? Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days.
How to reheat? To reheat refrigerated or frozen waffles, preheat oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees F and bake for 10-15 minutes or until hot. You can also heat them up in a toaster or the microwave.
