Banana Bread Waffles – The sweet and delicious taste of Banana Bread in a Waffle!
GOD, I love breakfast food! Look at that thing. It’s fluffy, and fruity, and cool whippy! That’s how I wanna roll every darn morning!
What’s up, friends? How are YOU? I hope everyone feels as good as myself. I am in Macedonia with family and friends, having a terrific time catching up with my sister and snuggling (smothering is more like it) my nieces.
I’m also eating like… a… well… a cow. Let’s not even try to find a better word.
Yesterday I ate my weight in Oven Baked Feta Cheese Dip. (See? Feta, again.)
To balance things out, I then ordered a salad. But it was a Caesar Salad… not sure how that ranks in the healthy-food department.
Speaking of food department… please say HELLO to the tastiest waffles of ever!
Okay, I’m pretty sure your recipe is the best of ever, too, but, pinky swear, this recipe is just as good. 😉
By the way, this is NOT waffled Banana Bread, rather these are waffles that taste like Banana Bread. M’kay? Cool.
Although, waffling all-the-things sounds super aromatic and so easy to make.
Sometimes it still blows my mind that I hated sweet breads/waffles/pancakes for like 20 years of my life. I just thought that bread-like things didn’t have a place in the sweets aisle. Don’t ask me why. Sheltered life. Just kidding. I just like to eat my bread with feta, day in and day out.
But Banana Bread Waffles. They are breakfast. A snack. Even lunch! And a bedtime munchie.
And a dessert masquerading as breakfast.
Grilled bananas on top? BONUS!
