Banana Bread Waffles:

  • 140 g all-purpose flour*
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • pinch of sea salt
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon, (optional)
  • 200 g ripe bananas, (=2 small bananas)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil, or canola oil
  • 5 tbsp unsweetened almond milk, or any plant-based milk
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar, or lemon juice
  • 40 g walnuts, chopped ** , (=about ¼ cup)
  • Baking spray, (if you don’t have non-stick waffle iron)

Toppings (optional):

  • banana, sliced
  • chopped walnuts
  • maple syrup


  • To a medium-size bowl, add all-purpose flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and a pinch of sea salt. Mix with a whisk and set aside.
  • Add bananas to a large bowl and mash them well with a potato masher or fork into applesauce-like consistency. Add maple syrup, sunflower oil, unsweetened almond milk, and apple cider vinegar, and stir to combine.
  • Sift the flour mixture into the mashed banana mixture and mix everything with a spatula until incorporated. Finally, fold in chopped walnuts.
  • Heat the waffle iron and spray it with oil (if you don’t have non-stick waffle iron). When your waffle iron is hot enough, pour the batter (1/2 batter for 2 waffles) to cover the waffle iron on each side. Cook until golden brown, about 7-10 minutes. Remove from iron, set aside, and repeat the process with the remaining batter. Serve warm with sliced banana and maple syrup.


* All-purpose flour: You can use spelt or whole-wheat flour for a healthier version.
** Walnuts: You can use any nuts or chocolate chips instead.


You can freeze the waffles for up to 3 months. Store them in a plastic zip-lock bag or an airtight container. To defrost them, bake them in preheated oven at 350°C (175°C) for about 5-10 minutes, or microwave for about 1 minute.
