Crispy Banana Waffles - 4th Anniversary Blog Post

It has been 4 years since I started this blog and this makes me immensely happy.A big thank you to everyone for all the love and support !! Your love keeps me motivated :)

I have been meaning to post a waffle recipe for so long. Traditional waffles are yummy healthy,crispy on the outside and a bit spongy on the inside.But I always like my waffles crispy.This recipe is nice and crunchy both on the inside and outside.

I am a big fan of banana bread and combining the flavor into the waffles made it even more yummy.It is healthy and nutritious.

Do you feel the crispiness ?

  • All purpose flour - 1 and 1/2 cups
  • Corn starch - 1/2 cup
  • Baking powder - 1 tblsp
  • Granulated white sugar  - 1/4 cup
  • Light brown sugar - 1/4 cup
  • Salt - 1/2 tsp
  • Eggs - 2
  • Ripe Banana - 2 large mashed
  • Cinnamon - 1/2 tsp
  • Nutmeg(optional) - a pinch
  • Cannola oil or vegetable oil - 1/3 cup
  • Milk - 1 and 1/2 cup

  • Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • Beat the eggs,oil,milk and whisk them together in a bowl.
  • Add the wet ingredients into dry and mix them gently until there are no lumps.Add the mashed banana and mix again.It is ok if the bananas are a little chunky.
  • Get your waffle maker heated up to the setting just below the high.Too low heat would ruin this recipe .We want a crispy waffle not a soggy one.
  • Pour a generous ladle of batter on the waffle iron.Make sure you don't leave any space.
  • Let it cook until the timer says its ready. Then switch the setting to medium and allow them to get crispy for about 2 more mins.Make sure you don't burn them.
  • Sprinkle with almonds,fresh bananas,honey,semi sweet chocolate chips and powdered sugar.Breakfast can't get any better than this.
Yummy breakfast

    Had a doubt, egg is not included under ingredients but step 2 specifies usage of egg, is it optional to use egg? Will the waffles turn good without egg too?

    1. Thank a lot Deepa. Yes I forgot to add eggs in the ingredients list. Thank you for noticing and letting me know :)
