Banana Pecan Waffles

Adapted fromĀ The Joy of Cooking

On weekend mornings, I like to do a little something special for breakfast. It’s fun to come up with new twists on our favorites. This recipe came to be given that we had some quickly ripening bananas and a lot of pecans! Delightful.

  • 1-3/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 6 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1-1/2 cups skim milk
  • 1/2 ripe banana, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup roasted pecans, finely chopped
  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine eggs, oil and milk. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients. Whisk them together until well distributed. Batter will be lumpy and somewhat uneven. Gently fold in the banana slices and the pecans.
  • Heat a waffle iron and spoon about 1/2 cup of batter onto the hot iron. Serve warm with maple syrup.
  • Quick Tips
  • 1. This basic recipe (before banana and pecans) is highly adaptable. Consider adding blueberries, chocolate chips or even the latest culinary trend – bacon!
  • 2. We can’t typically eat all this recipe makes, so I freeze the leftovers. What a fun treat on a weekday morning – just warm them in a toaster oven or toaster as you would any frozen waffle.

    This recipe looks out of this world. I’ve aways loved waffles and this is the best recipe for them to taste different than every other. I cant wait to try them and have them in the morning.
