Banana-Cinnamon Waffles

Banana-Cinnamon Waffles

100% whole-grain and 100% delicious! Just a hint of cinnamon not to overpower the banana flavor, but you can add more cinnamon if you like.

2/3 cup whole-wheat pastry flour (2.8 ounces)
1/2 cup whole-wheat flour (2.3 ounces)
1/2 cup soy flour (1.0 ounce)
1/4 cup buckwheat flour (1.0 ounce)
1/4 cup ground flax seeds (0.8 ounce)
2 tablespoons evaporated cane juice (0.6 ounce)
2 teaspoons aluminum-free baking powder
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon or to taste
1/4 teaspoon salt
1-3/4 cups Silk Brand unsweetened plain soy milk or unsweetened almond milk (14 ounces)
3 tablespoons EXTRA LIGHT olive oil or expeller-pressed canola oil (0.9 ounce)
2 large eggs, beaten (3.6 to 3.8 ounces)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
About 1-3/4 large-size very ripe banana, fork mashed (9.6 ounces)

In a very large mixing bowl, combine all four types of flours, flax seeds, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Stir well with a whisk to combine all the ingredients together. Set aside.

In a medium-size bowl or a 4-cup measuring cup, combine the soy milk, oil, eggs and vanilla extract. Whisk together until combined. Add the soy milk mixture to the flour mixture, stirring with a whisk just until blended. Fold in mashed bananas. Set aside.

Preheat a waffle iron for about 15 to 20 minutes. Coat waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray. Spread a generous 3/4 cup of batter for two 4-inch thick waffles onto hot waffle iron, spreading batter to the edges with a spatula. Cook for 4 minutes or until steaming stops. Repeat cooking procedure with remaining batter.

Top waffles with sliced fresh bananas and drizzle 100% maple syrup over waffles.

Store any leftover waffles in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. To reheat, place waffles in a toaster.

Another breakfast tips: Toast leftover waffles and spread with almond butter. You can also top the almond butter with fresh sliced bananas. You can eat it open-faced or top with another toasted waffle to make a breakfast sandwich.

Yields ten 4-inch thick waffles
