I’m a HUGE fan of breakfast. We easily eat breakfast for lunch or dinner several times a week, and obviously every day of the week for breakfast. Some days I even get my act together and whip up a hot meal for breakfast… like the real breakfast. And it’s not just toast, though that definitely counts if you ask me, especially coated in cinnamon and sugar. I only wish I could snap my fingers and make perfectly cooked bacon appear before me, because that would make breakfasts that much more enjoyable. Who wouldn’t love that? Instant bacon, only not the weird flaky dehydrated stuff like potatoes. Just snap and it’s there. Or a twitch or blink. I’m game for whatever magic to make it happen.

For most people, coffee suffices. I want bacon to totally be my coffee, especially since I *gasp* am not a coffee drinker personally. I do love my flavored hot drinks though.

Now you see… these banana waffles might appear out of place since it’s pumpkin everything everywhere right now. But, I made these a while ago and then we had a month of apples so here I am finally getting to share these delicious waffles with you. And you know what? If you want to make sure you have a hot breakfast every day of the week, either for you or for someone else, whip up a batch of these and freeze them for later! Simply pop one or two in the toaster oven to reheat and voila! Hot breakfast!

These banana cinnamon waffles are super easy to make and are full of flavor. You almost don’t even need any syrup. Okay who am I kidding… syrup is mandatory. ;)

    Made these for my girls yesterday morning, they loved them! Although they are not crunchy on the outside, they refrigerate well and did beautifully in the toaster this morning. Thanks for the perfect breakfast, will be making these again. Side note…I will cut down on the oil next time, and sprinkle a little bit of sugar on the bananas prior to mixing.

    Waffles did not hold there structure at all! Had to turn it into pancakes. They were good pancakes

      This recipe does work as written. My only guesses as to why it did not turn out for you is incorrect measuring or a waffle iron that isn’t heating properly.

    I made this tonight for dinner since my bananas were starting to get a bit mushy, I didn’t separate the eggs, just mixed the dry ingredients in their own bowl and put all the wet ingredients in the stand mixer then gradually added the dry to it, It came out great. Definitely going to make this one again :-)

    These waffles were a lot easier to make than I expected. My one year old keeps me pretty busy, so meal time can get rather hectic. At least now I have a homemade breakfast/snack item I can pull out of the freezer and heat up quickly. These waffles are so light and fluffy! And they taste great without butter and syrup, so the recipe is definitely a keeper.
