These Glazed Banana Mini Waffles are good for everyone in the family! They can be made by just pouring 1/4 cup or less onto the waffle iron for smaller servings and for kids. Put the full amount on for normal sized waffles for adults and those who have hearty appetites. I like a full sized waffle! Plus I always make extra batter so that I can freeze the waffles and have homemade waffles on hand. These are gluten and dairy free!
This recipe utilizes a waffle mix and some extra’s in the batter! These extras add protein and fiber in addition to flavor! Check the recipe after the photos below.
I absolutely love pure maple syrup for waffles and making glazed or caramelized bananas to put the pure maple syrup on is so yummy. I don’t know if I have mentioned before but if you google up maple syrup houses on the East Coast, it is much cheaper to buy in bulk from them and much fresher! Some even ship FREE, even to Alaska!! I buy usually 2 Gallons at a time in 1/2 quart jugs. I get my maple syrup that way now only! Never buy it in the stores. I freeze the 1/2 gallon containers and take them out to use them as I need. The best of the best and much cheaper.
Recipe for Glazed Banana Mini Waffles:
Glazed Banana Mini Waffles
- Your favorite boxed waffle mix. I like King Aurthur Pancake/Waffle Mix.
To the boxed mix you will add
- 2-3 tablespoons ground flax meal
- 1 large really ripe banana for the mix
- 3 tablespoons almond meal - you can use the bagged store almond meal. I used the pulp left over from making homemade almond milk. I press it into freezing trays and freeze until ready to use. Those are the solid cubes shown next to the bananas and waffle maker in the first image. * So if you use dry almond meal you may want to add a little more liquid to the batter.
- 1 cup almond milk for mixing to your desired consistency.
- 2 ripe bananas for glazing in a nonstick pan with coconut oil or butter.
- Heat the waffle iron to about medium and add a generous amount of coconut oil, repeat this before each new set of waffles.
- Whisk your favorite boxed waffle mix along with the added goodies listed above, adding a dash more liquid at a time until you have the consistency desired.
- Spoon a small amount of batter into the waffle maker and cook until golden brown.
- Heat the nonstick pan and coconut oil, slice the two extra bananas, and cook/fry until super soft and golden brown on both sides.
- Serve the bananas on top of the waffles with a dash of pure maple syrup.
