I’m addicted to breakfast foods. I love them all. Pancakes, waffles, donuts, oatmeal, eggs, sausage, bacon, cereal, bagels, toast, sausage and gravy, omelets. I really could go on forever. I just love breakfast foods. Growing up I loved Sunday mornings. It was the day I was able to sleep in. I would wake up to the delicious smell of my mom cooking an awesome breakfast. Maybe that’s why I love breakfast so much. As you can see with that list above, breakfast isn’t always healthy. That is why I am on a mission to find healthy alternatives to the breakfast foods we all have come to love! Today’s recipe is one that is very easy and really yummy.
Healthy Banana Waffles
½ cup of applesauce
2/3 cup liquid egg substitute
1 ½ cups of almond milk (you can use any kind of milk you’d like)
1 cup of wheat flour
1 cup of quick-cooking oats
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tsp of vanilla
1 tsp of cinnamon
½ tsp of salt
First you will want to preheat your waffle maker. Be sure to use cooking spray before each waffle, because these suckers will become permanently glued to your machine if you don’t. Next you will want to mash your bananas until they are smooth. Stir in applesauce, liquid egg substitute, and almond milk. After that you can add the rest of your dry ingredients. Make sure it is thoroughly mixed together.
Time to start making the waffles! With my waffle maker, I filled a 1/3 measuring cup and poured it into the machine. I was able to make 6 waffles. You might want to check your instruction manual to see how much batter you should use and how long they should cook for.
These are delicious and definitely help curb my craving for waffles! You can serve these waffles with pure maple syrup, sugar free syrup, fat free whip cream, strawberries, bananas, you name it!
Hope you enjoy and if you happen to make these, please leave a comment and let me know what you think of them! Thank you!
