Peanut Butter and Banana Waffles

Happy Waffle Wednesday!

Sometimes, I just need comfort food. And when I don’t have the time to make something complicated, I go for waffles. They’re easy to make, easy to freeze, easy to pop into the toaster at a moment’s notice. Perfect for all the occasions when a huge meal of roasted boar with braised red cabbage and dumplings is just a little too much to deal with.

Today, work was absolutely exhausting, so I spontaneously baked a waffle that I found in my waffle iron’s recipe booklet a while ago. It was filling and comforting and a perfect little pick-me-up to forget about this morning and start my free time.

For about 16 waffles you need:

  • 2-3 super ripe bananas (just before the peel goes from spotty to black, mashed)
  • 3 eggs
  • 120g melted butter
  • 240g smooth peanut butter
  • big pinch of salt
  • 1-2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 150g all purpose flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder

I dump everything except flour and baking powder into the blender and mix it on high until it’s smooth. Then I move the sludge to a bowl, add flour and baking powder and whisk it until everything’s well combined. The batter comes out very stiff. You can add a tiny little bit of milk, but don’t overdo it.

I use an ice cream scoop to place a golfball sized amount in my belgian waffle iron and bake it until the outside is crispy. I love the frazzled edges on the smaller waffles, but feel free to fill the iron properly and bake whole waffles instead.

I hope you enjoy these, I definitely do. Until next time!

  1. Have to LOL on this one. Am allergic to both bananas and peanuts! Still, waffles sound good, and you have given us so many other wonderful options, I think I shall make some for this evening.
