I have had some rotting bananas sitting on my counter this week. With John John being a puppy, I’ve been so busy chasing him around. And while he’s napping I’ve been trying to get work done. So I feel I’ve been eating way less than normal simply because I haven’t had time! And my banana snacks have been forgotten.
So, I decided to make banana waffles the other day with John John! I also wanted to make them eggless as I know you all have been loving all my eggless recipes. Plus, I’m getting really excited for Effortless Eggless Baking to come out and I’ve been making so many eggless recipes lately, including my Coffee Creamer Cookies which are a new favorite among everyone around here.
I used bananas to replace the eggs in these Eggless Banana Waffles. However, the banana flavor is not overwhelming at all. Banana is not my favorite flavor, but I do love real bananas and I eat one almost every day. And, these Eggless Banana Waffles are so good, I love them! Delaney was also seriously impressed with these waffles.
We have been eating them for breakfast every day since! Whenever I make waffles I put them in a Tupperware in the freezer immediately after. I love doing this, as they stay good in the freezer for a couple months. And then when we’re craving waffles we can just pull them out and pop them in the toaster! I would highly recommend making these Eggless Banana Waffles (even if you eat eggs) as they taste just as good sans eggs.
Can I make these waffles bigger or smaller?
Yes! You can make homemade waffles any size you want. While I call out that I use 1/2 cup of batter in my specific waffle iron, which is by Cuisinart. But, if you have a square waffle iron or a smaller circle one, the amount of batter may be more or less depending on what size waffle iron you have. It doesn’t matter how much batter you put in as long as it fills your waffle iron enough. With these, I actually used less batter so my batter only filled the center of the iron, making these smaller than the typical larger waffles that this iron can make.
How long do you cook waffles for?
Waffle cooking time all depends on your waffle iron. Most waffle irons will have settings, and you can choose the setting you’d like it to cook at. I usually choose a medium setting for my waffles as I like them golden brown, as opposed to lightly cooked or very dark. Most waffle irons will beep when your waffles are done, depending on the setting chosen. But, the great thing about homemade waffles is you can always lift up the lid to check on them. Unlike pancakes, when you flip them too soon you can ruin them. But, with waffles, if you lift up the iron, you don’t damage the waffle at all and you can check its progress.
Can you freeze waffles?
Yes, you can freeze homemade waffles. After I make homemade waffles, I put them all in a plastic Tupperware and place that in the freezer. Be careful not to smoosh them into a Tupperware and lightly add them so they’re not smooshed against each other. This makes it easier to remove them when you just want one or two, otherwise the whole stack is frozen together!
Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
Eggless Banana WafflesDifficulty: Easy
You won’t miss the eggs in these Eggless Banana Waffles! Their light and fluffy texture and subtle banana flavor go incredibly well with a drizzle of maple syrup!
3 organic large bananas
1 1/2 cups organic milk
1 cup (226 grams) organic salted butter, melted
284 grams (2 1/4 cups) organic all purpose flour
2 tablespoons organic cane sugar
2 teaspoons baking power
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 teaspoon organic cinnamon
1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
- For serving
organic salted butter
organic banana slices
organic maple syrup
- In a medium bowl, mash up the bananas. Add the milk and melted butter.
- Add the flour, cane sugar, baking powder, sea salt, and cinnamon and whisk to combine completely.
- Allow waffle iron to get warm, I cooked these on setting 4 on my waffle iron that I linked above. But, medium on any iron will do! Measure 1/2 cup of batter into the waffle iron as I only let these fill the middle portion of my iron (if you have a smaller iron, may have to do less). Cook until golden brown, about 2 to 4 minutes, depending on your waffle iron.
- Serve immediately with butter, banana slices, or maple syrup!
- Store extra waffles in the fridge for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.
- Gluten Free — Replace the all purpose flour with 284 grams (1 3/4 cups plus 1 1/2 tablespoons) organic gluten free flour blend or with 284 grams (2 3/4 cups plus 1 1/2 tablespoons) organic almond flour.
- High Altitude — Follow the recipe as noted.
