The Best Homemade Whole Wheat Banana Waffles

This is a recipe for the best homemade whole wheat banana waffles. They are my daughter’s favorite breakfast. Every time I have overripe bananas, I make them for her. She loves to eat waffles drizzled with honey or maple syrup. They also taste great topped with sliced banana and nuts. Sometimes my daughter makes herself a waffle sandwich by putting Nutella and whipped cream between two waffles. That is almost like having a cake for breakfast.

Why Should you Make Them?

I’m telling you these are the best homemade whole wheat banana waffles you will ever have. They are not only satisfying but also high in fiber. The recipe I offer you calls for a cup of whole wheat flour, which is high in fiber. Fiber reduces insulin spikes and is good for digestion. Whole wheat flour also has more protein B vitamins, calcium, iron and folate than white flour. Adding a bit of whole grain to your breakfast can help you stay full for longer.

Kids love these waffles. I sent them packed in my daughter’s lunch box multiple times. She loves to share her meals with friends and I always hear positive feedback for these banana waffles.

Only half of the flour in this recipe is whole wheat, because I wanted the kids to enjoy them. Using only whole wheat flour in the recipe will result in denser waffle. I’ve tried that in the past and I didn’t get a good result. To make them kid friendly I also didn’t add sugar to the batter. The waffles are have enough sweetness from the ripe bananas. Drizzled with honey and topped with extra fruit and nuts they turn into nutritious and delicious breakfast that any child would love to have.
