Equipment

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 cup milk I use whole milk
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg

Instructions
 

  • Whisk the egg in a large bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, mash the banana. Add in the milk, vanilla extract and melted butter. Mix well. Pour ingredients into the bowl with egg.
  • Add in the flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Mix until combined.
  • Heat your waffle maker according to manufacture's instruction. When hot, use ¼ measuring cup to scoop the batter onto the waffle maker.
  • Cook until the waffle is crispy and brown, about 3-4 minutes for my Oster 8 inch waffle iron.

Notes

Whole wheat flour - Available at health food stores like Whole Foods or Sprouts in the bulk foods section. Bob’s Red Mill is also a good brand. If you do not have whole wheat flour, you can substitute it with everyday baking flour (organic and unrefined is a good option.)
Banana - Make sure to use ripe bananas, it adds a bit more sweetness. Use bananas that are soft with brown spots on the peel. 
Waffle Maker - I use an Oster 8-inch round waffle maker. Check your waffle maker for the appropriate settings. I use the medium high setting to preheat and cook.  Make smaller waffles by using a ¼ measuring cup to scoop the batter. 
To store - Let waffles cool completely and then place in an airtight container and place in the fridge or freezer.  Will keep in the fridge for up to 2 days. 
To reheat frozen waffles, defrost them in a toaster oven for about 5-6 minutes at 300 Fahrenheit.
