Grain-Free Banana Waffles:

Are you team waffles or team pancakes? To be honest I am usually team pancakes but sometimes I get in the mood for some good old waffles. And these grain-free banana waffles are super easy to prepare, make for the perfect meal prep option, and made with just 7 ingredients.

Ingredients you will need:

  1. Medium ripe bananas
  2. Pasture raised eggs
  3. Melted coconut oil
  4. Vanilla extract
  5. Baking powder
  6. Coconut flour or almond flour (if using almond flour you may need to add more)
  7. Optional: flaxseed meal
  8. Cinnamon
  9. Toppings: fresh fruit, maple syrup, and nut/seed butter of choice
  10. Optional add in: chopped chocolate or chocolate chips

How to prepare:

Making the waffles are easy. I first start by mashing up my ripe bananas with a fork along the sides of the bowl to get it nice and mashed. And then I add the rest of the wet ingredients and mix. And then add in the dry ingredients and mix. I like to let my batter sit at room temperature for 10 minutes but if you are in a rush no need, its just my personal preference.

Please note: If using almond flour in place of coconut flour you may need to add more if batter is too wet. Coconut flour is more of a denser flour and absorbs more liquid compared to almond flour.

 

Cooking the waffles:

I have an all clad waffle maker that I love and I find it super easy to make waffles. I spray my waffle maker with some coconut oil and once it is warmed I add about 1/4 cup of the batter to the waffle maker. And I close the waffle maker and let it work its magic, my cook time on mine is about 2 minutes. But time may vary depending on your waffle maker.

Can I use this batter for pancakes?

And yes if you don’t have a waffle maker or if you are just team pancakes, this batter can also be used to make pancakes. Just add some oil to a pan and cook a couple minutes each side. But I would suggest making them on the smaller side so they are easier to flip.

Meal prep:

I like to double the recipe for these waffles and make a big batch during my meal prep. And I will store some in the refrigerator in an airtight container for the week and the other half goes in the freezer for a morning I don’t feel like cooking.
