Banana-Cinnamon Waffles

Filed under: Breakfast, Fruit, Main Dish — Tags: , — bettylou79 @ 2:18 am

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.

  1. Looks great and freezing the waffles is a great idea! I did this a few months ago and it was great to have a quick breakfast with little effort!

  2. These sound amazing. I need to make waffles again soon but I don’t like my little square waffle maker. 🙂
