It's like banana bread in waffle form.
Needless to say, this went over well. My 2 year old ate an entire, huge waffle.
Banana Cinnamon Waffles
- 1 3/4 c. flour
- 1 T. baking powder
- 3/4 tsp. cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- 2 eggs, separated
- 1 1/2 c. milk
- 2 smashed, ripe bananas
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 c. vegetable oil [could also use 1/2 c. melted butter]
- Sift all dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. In a smaller mixing bowl, combine egg yolks, milk, oil, vanilla and smashed bananas. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix together by hand, don't overmix.
- In another bowl, whip egg whites [use a hand mixer for faster results] until stiff peaks form. Fold egg whites into batter -- Do NOT overmix. You should still be able to see some of the egg whites.
- Pour amount of mixture appropriate for your waffle iron into a preheated waffle iron. Cook for about 3 minutes.
