• Banana Waffles • grain free, dairy free

    Here’s a good recipe for those times when you’ve got a few ripe or over ripe bananas. Unlike a lot of grain free recipes, these waffles are light and fluffy! Plus they are gluten free, grain free, and dairy free! In addition to bananas, this healthy breakfast recipe uses almond flour, tapioca (or arrowroot starch), coconut oil, and eggs. The bananas provide plenty of sweetness, so this recipe contains no additional sweeteners.

    These waffles taste great topped with banana slices, walnuts, butter and/or maple syrup.

    Ingredients

    2 Ripe bananas

    3 Large eggs

    ¼ c. coconut oil (melted), additional for greasing waffle iron

    2 tsp. Vanilla

    1 c. Blanched Almond flour

    ½ c. Tapioca or arrowroot starch

    1 tsp. Ground cinnamon

    2 tsp. Baking powder

    ¼ tsp. Salt (Himalayan or Real Salt)

    1 tsp. apple cider vinegar

    Top with:

    Sliced bananas

    Walnuts

    Grass fed butter

    Maple syrup

    Directions

    Note: For best results, use a blanched almond flour that is finely ground, not almond meal. This helps keep the texture lighter.

    Preheat waffle iron to medium/high (I like this inexpensive ceramic coated waffle maker). Use a small amount of coconut oil to grease the waffle maker plates.

    Use a mixer to combine the bananas, eggs, and vanilla. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well.

    Scoop out about 1/3 cup of batter and pour onto hot waffle maker. You may need more or less depending on your maker. Close lid and let cook for 3-1/2 to 4 minutes. Note that grain free waffles take a longer to cook than traditional ones.

    Check waffle. If it is golden brown, carefully remove, and repeat with remaining batter.  It depends on the size of your waffle maker, but you should get 3-4 large waffles.

    To keep finished waffles warm, place on a baking sheet in a 200˚ oven.

    Top with grass fed butter, pecan, and maple syrup.

    Enjoy!
