Before I talk about how life changing these Banana Nut Waffles are…..
What a week it has been! As you know my boyfriend recently proposed to me, so I’m a fiance and it’s been so fun to day dream about all wedding madness we are about to subject ourselves to. Baylen said that as soon as he asked me to marry him, my eyes lit up and I said, “Now I get to buy a wedding binder”. If that is not romantic, I know nothing people. So naturally I ordered my wedding binder, and ohh my goodness. There are so many things. Which is exciting, but a little intimidating, but I’m sure we will be just fine. I mean, I have my binder…. right?
Anyways, back to the reason we are all here. Banana Nut Waffles. Just as an fyi: They are grain free. Don’t let that scare you away, they are amazing!
But don’t take my word for it. You definitely need to whip a batch of these banana nut waffles up to be the judge. I’m not always in the mood for sweet breakfasts, but sometimes it’s like the only thing I could ever want in life. And I was having a sweet tooth of a weekend. So basically, give me all the baked goodies.
I tend to use bananas in most of my grain free waffles/pancakes, which lead to the thought…. Why not just have banana flavored waffles? A couple of walnuts later, the smell banana nut waffles took over my whole apartment. And I’m telling you, that is not a bad problem to have.
I topped my banana nut waffles with leftover walnuts and sliced bananas. My guess is that if you added coconut whipped cream… or regular whipped cream for that matter… you would be on to something.
