Peanut Butter and Banana Waffles

Peanut Butter and Bananas is a combination that many people love.  I thought about this and had to give it a try in a waffle.  It is actually more decadent and rich than your average waffle.  To keep it from weighing a ton I add chopped banana instead of making it part of the batter.  I have included my peanut butter syrup recipe if you want to try it or you could use your favorite syrup. 

  • 2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1 ¾ Cup Almond Milk (or whatever milk you want to use)
  • 1/3 Cup Peanut Butter
  • 2 Eggs
  • 3 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 2 Bananas, chopped

Peanut Butter Syrup

  • ¼ Cup Brown Sugar
  • ¼ Cup Tablespoons 100% Pure Maple Syrup (NOT the fake syrup!)
  • ¼ Cup Peanut Butter (I used chunky style)

First, put flour, baking powder, milk, peanut butter, eggs, and sugar in a bowl and mix to combine.  Fold in the chopped banana.

Second, cook the waffles according to your waffle iron instruction.  I just cook it until the light turns on…done!

Third, to make the syrup bring all of the ingredients to a bubble in a small saucepan or skillet, whisk together, cook until sugar is dissolved (about 1 or 2 minutes).  The syrup will thicken as it cools down.  Note: add a little water or milk to thin it out if the consistency is too thick for your liking. 

Finally, serve one or two waffles on a plat topped with slices of banana and some warm peanut butter syrup, and enjoy!

If you wanted to go all out you could give it a little drizzle of chocolate syrup!  This is one of those waffles that can be dessert if you like.  I love these waffles and was really pleased at how they turned out.  This is just another use (or excuse to use) your waffle iron!
