Banana Cinnamon Waffles

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]
  1. 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. 
  2. 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.
  3. Pour amount of mixture appropriate for your waffle iron into a preheated waffle iron.  Cook for about 3 minutes.
Waffles with be a nice goldeny brown, and slightly crispy on the outside, and chewy on the inside!
