Banana Pecan Waffles

Breakfast has always been an important meal for me. Even if it is just a bowl of cereal or a yogurt. I would feel lost without it in the morning, especially since I’m am hungry more often than not. And there are so many great options! Lucky for me, today is National Pecan and Waffle Day, separately. But I decided to make it a joint celebration like a twins’ birthday party. Added in an extra star on the stage (bananas) and the outcome was marvelous.

Slightly random aside about bananas. Recently I have read that bananas are the fruit that people buy at the grocery store because they feel as though they should buy them, but never actually eat them and end up being thrown away or incorporated into baked goods. I have the opposite problem. Whenever I plan on baking something with them, I have to buy much more than I need because I eat one every day until they are gone. Or I have to find the most overripe ones at the store and use them right away. Which is what I had to do for these waffles. I just love fruit! I cannot get enough of any kind. Don’t ask me which is my favorite – it’s a serious dilemma. But forgive me while I ask, what is your favorite fruit?

Ingredients:

2 cups flour

1 Tbsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

4 eggs, beaten

1-1/2 cup buttermilk

1/2 cup melted butter

2 bananas, mashed

1 cup pecans, chopped

Directions:

  1. Preheat waffle griddle.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together the eggs and buttermilk, then add to the dry ingredients and blend until smooth.
  4. Add the butter, bananas, and pecans and mix until well incorporated.
  5. Grease your griddle (and between batches) and laddle over within approximately half an inch of the edges. Cook according to waffle maker instructions.
  6. Serve with sliced bananas and syrup.
