At my house I can buy bananas one week and they disapear so quickly I wonder if we have a monkey hiding in the closet. The next week I can buy them and nobody eats them . This weekend it was the second choice and I had a bowl full of over ripen bananas. My boys love homemade waffles and I decided to incorperate bananas into a basic waffle mix and they were wonderful. I love a warm homemade waffle that is slightly crisp on the outside and nice and soft on the inside. I had some fresh blueberries on hand so these Banana Blueberry Waffles were born.
When I was younger I loved my waffles drenched in syrup, and there is nothing wrong with that . It is just the older I get I can’t take all that sugar especially in the morning. I perfer my waffles with slighty sweetened whipped cream and fresh fruit. Actually you can do this and add a little bit of syrup. These babies are good no matter what you top them with.
These waffles are so easy to make anyone can do it. Start off by heating your waffle iron. Sift together the flour, baking powder and sugar. Add slightly beaten eggs and half the buttermilk. Add the rest of the buttermilk and beat until smooth. Add the mashed banana and extracts and mix well . Fold in blueberries carefully. Cook waffles according the manufacters directions of your waffle iron, you want them crisp and slightly brown on the outside.
