Crispy Banana Waffles

Crispy Banana Waffles

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs - separated
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup banana (2 medium bananas) - mashed
  • 6 Tablespoons butter - softened
This recipe has received overwhelmingly positivity reviews since it was submitted in 2007. I agree with the consensus that the waffles are delicious and worth making again, but they aren't as crispy as the name would indicate. I found that if I place cooked waffles in a 400 degree oven for 5 to 8 minutes, they will crisp up a little more. The waffles have a big banana flavor. The amount of banana in the batter is the main reason you don't get full crispiness. If you want lots of banana flavor in an easy recipe, give this one a try. (This recipe was submitted in 2007. It was tested and photographed in May 2014.)

I don't have a waffle iron, so I cooked them how you'd cook a pancake. Very tasty. Enjoyed mine with apple as well as banana.

Pretty good. I felt like they took a while to cook. They're great with chocolate chips in as well!

Not as crispy, and darker than normal, but we did like the taste. Smells very good

It wasn't necessarily crispy but it was super tasty. We'd use this one again.

Used 1 banana, spelt flour, lactose free milk and canola oil and they were perfect. Light and fluffy. We'll see if they freeze well.

Very good! But a tad sweet for my taste, as they involved two bananas to equal a cup. Next time I might leave out the 2 tbls of sugar. Believe me, there will be a next time!

Excellent recipe! We did the whipped cream version. I'd suggest either whip cream or syrup as both together were way too sweet.

I got crispy waffles! I modified the recipe, though. Here's what I did: Doubled the recipe (so I could freeze some). Used 1 1/3 C Whole Wheat flour, 2/3 soy flour, ~ 1/4 C Garbanzo bean flour, 2 tbsp flax seed meal. Added 1/2 cup cauliflower puree to the liquids, since I had extra dry ingredients. Also, I used 1/2 coconut oil & 1/2 butter, and 1/2 sugar & 1/2 agave nectar. To boot, I added chocolate chips to the batter before folding in the egg whites. Since I'm feeding them to my kids, I want them to be a bit more healthful. The chocolate chips inside mean that I don't need to add any toppings! Anyhow, it's the butter that makes crispy waffles, so maybe you guys could add a bit more? Also, toasting frozen waffles crisps them up, too.

Not sure if I did something wrong (I might have added to much banana), but these waffles definitely weren't crispy. They were really yummy anyway.

Great recipe, the first waffle recipe I make at home and it worked great with my regular B&D toaster with the waffle iron. Toppings suggested in the recipe also are the best, tried fruits and chocolate paste but weren't as good as what is suggested.

YUMMY. Adding walnuts to the batter makes them even more delicious!

Some of the best waffles I've ever made. Almost belgian waffle consistency, but able to be made in a regular waffle iron. Delicious!
