Banana Bread Waffles are the perfect breakfast for banana bread lovers. They take just minutes to make and the favorite taste of bananas and cinnamon will make you think you’re eating a warm slice of banana bread. Top with butter and maple syrup for a sweet start to any day.
You might have noticed that I have a lot of recipes made with bananas on my site. Besides them being so darn delicious, the reason is actually two-fold. I absolutely love bananas and can’t imagine a day that goes by that I don’t have one. In fact, when I was younger, my mom used to call me ChiChi, after those Chiquita bananas, because I ate so many of them.
Secondly, I’m lucky enough to have a bunch of banana trees in my backyard and, when they produce bananas, they come in bunches of 50-75 bananas FROM EACH TREE! I give as many as I can to neighbors, freeze some and then bake with some, all before they go bad. Whew! Now that’s a whole lot of bananas!
I’ve made all kinds of banana breads, from my all-time favorite Banana Bread to Tropical Banana Bread, Banana Strawberry Muffins, Banana Doughnuts, Chocolate Caramel Smoothie Bowls to Chocolate Covered Bananas. In other words, anything and everything with bananas! So I thought, why not take my favorite banana recipe, banana bread, and make it into a delicious waffle for breakfast.
Not only are these delicious but much faster to make than banana bread. Banana bread typically takes about 10 minutes to mix and over an hour to bake. These take the same prep time but only take 4 minutes for each waffle. How’s that for getting banana bread goodness to your mouth quick?
Easier than making banana bread and a lot quicker too!
