Banana Waffles

My Christmas breakfast. Borrowing a waffle iron from the missionary family around the corners and down the road. The waffles burnt, for whatever reason, so I can’t really tell you what setting to cook them on. I hope it wasn’t because of the ingredients in the waffles. They smelled yummy cooking. It might be the waffle iron or the oil used. I used coconut oil. Could be some other reason, or a combination of reasons. I’m sure they would have been much yummier and healthier if they hadn’t burnt, but they still tasted yummy. I only ate one, which was satisfying/filling, so the other is saved for Sabbath breakfast.

Ingredients for 2:

  • 1 cup of whole wheat flour (I used coarsely ground flour, graham flour or even fine ground whole  wheat flour should work also)
  • 1 cup sticky/fine flour (I recommend oat flour or ground oats, but I used a white wheat flour, not sure how much refining involved and hopefully not brominated, but looks like fine white wheat flour to me and was in a bag that said “wheat flour”)
  • salt (I used Himalayan pink salt.)
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored, sliced, and pounded or ground or mashed into an applesauce or 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 6 tiny bananas or 2-3 regular sized bananas or 1-1 1/2 (not really sure of the conversion, but I used the small, finger-sized  (in length, though many maybe a little bigger and most if not all or almost all fatter) bananas, ripe or very ripe
  • water
  • oil for greasing waffle iron

To Make:

  1. Mix flours with a pinch or two of salt (or a few light sprinkles or grinds).
  2. Add the applesauce/smashed apple.
  3. Peel and pound/mash bananas until well smashed.
  4. Mix all together. Add about 1/4-1/2 cup water, starting with the smaller amount and adding more if needed to form a thick, gooey batter.
  5. Grease and heat waffle iron.
  6. Pour into the waffle iron.
  7. Cook about 10-20 minutes or until crispy on the outside and cooked in the middle. Because of the bananas, it will probably be gooey in the middle, but may be drier if well cooked, so the gooeyness could be banana or it could be not thoroughly cooked. Try to find the best setting, perhaps low or medium or between medium and low. Cook longer if needed.

Try with maple syrup, or with coconut oil and salt and/or molasses. I tried coconut oil, salt, and molasses, putting them on in order, just a little blackstrap molasses.

If anyone knows the right setting, please comment with the setting you used or would use. I’m sure not all waffle irons are the same. Thank you.
