Declicious yet nutritious banana waffles... high in fiber and various nutrients such as calcium, potassium, folate and vitamin E!
- 2 bananas (mashed)
- 1 1⁄4 cups oats (or oat bran)
- 1⁄2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1⁄4 cup wheat germ
- 1⁄4 cup flax seed (Ground)
- 1⁄4 cup wheat bran
- 2 cups vanilla-flavored soymilk
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- Combine the oat bran or oats and milk in a medium bowl and let it stand for about 5 minutes.
- Stir in the rest of the ingredients and mix it evenly. If the batter is too runny then add more oat bran, oats, or whole wheat flour until the batter becomes thicker. (If you’re making pancakes then the batter does not need to be thick.)
- Be sure to spray the waffle iron and keep in there for about a minute, adding about 5-10 seconds longer for each waffle.
- They are delicious topped with peanut butter, bananas and honey. Or you can top with apple sauce, whip cream drizzled with pure maple syrup.
This recipe failed spectacularly. It gummed up my waffle iron and never really cooked into waffles. I tried to salvage the batter by adding eggs and sugar and cooking as pancakes but the texture was too gritty to be tasty. My husband ate his drowned in syrup but my daughter refused to touch any.
