Waffle-Making Adventure

Last night my good friend Melissa came over to try my newly-acquired recipe for Brown-Sugar Banana Waffles. And, being a good blogger, it took me twice as long as the recipe said it would because I kept stopping to take pictures.

Brown Sugar Banana Waffles (serves 4. Four WW points per serving)


2/3 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup regular flour
1 and 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t salt
1/8 t nutmeg
1 banana, broken into pieces
1/2 cup fat free milk
1 T packed brown sugar
1 T canola oil
1 large egg


Mix flour (both), baking powder, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg in a food processor (about 3 seconds).

Add banana chunks, milk, brown sugar, oil, and egg. Pulse three times then scrape the sides of the bowl.

Process until smooth (there will be some small banana lumps).

Pour 1/2 cup batter onto preheated waffle iron (makes kind of weird shaped waffles... could also use one full cup and split the waffle in half for portion control). Follow manufactures instructions (mine took about 2-3 minutes).

Serve with a freshly sliced banana (adds one additional point), and drizzle with honey or maple syrup (both were good. Calculate points separately).

The verdict:

They were good. Clearly, because we couldn't stop eating to get a good photo. These would also be great with fresh whipped cream to neutralize the sweetness of the banana and syrup.
Any great recipes you want me to post or try?
