Banana-Cinnamon Waffles

I made these yesterday morning. Our intention was to make plan old waffles and top them with strawberries and whip cream, but a lot of people on the What’s Cooking board were asking about what to do with bananas that are looking kind of sad. Someone suggested this recipe from Cooking Light’s website. We decided to try this recipe instead of regular waffles. I had to make a few modifications because I didn’t have all of the ingredients but they tasted just fine. We froze the leftovers and will eat them later.
