DIRECTIONS

  • Heat waffle iron.
  • Beat bananas, milk substitute, oil, and sweetener with a wire whisk or electric mixer.
  • Stir in flour, baking powder and salt until just mixed. Batter may be lumpy.
  • Fold in nuts or berries or chocolate chips.
  • Spray waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour about 2/3 cup of batter onto the center of the iron. Close lid.
  • Bake about 5 minutes or until steaming stops. Carefully remove waffle and serve with non-hydrogenated margarine (I like Earth Balance Natural Buttery Spread) and real maple syrup or honey. Other serving suggestions: spread with peanut butter or top with fresh berries and vegan whipped cream or vegan ice cream.
  • If you have extra batter, either store it in an airtight container in the fridge for a day or two OR go ahead and cook up some more waffles and freeze them in Ziploc bags. Then toast for a weekday morning treat!
