This is a great way to use bananas that are too ripe to eat on their own. Serve with candied pecans or walnuts and real maple syrup.

Having just read a great article about healthy substitutions I wanted to try this healthy recipe and see if I could apply what I read. I used low fat buttermilk for the milk cut the oil in half and used unsweetened applesauce for the other half. Because of that I would recommend not using the vanilla. They came out great! Thanks for a good recipe! Read More

My husband and I really like these waffles. I did make some modification to this recipe. I used soy milk. The all purpose flour was replaced with whole wheat pastry flour. I had olive oil instead of canola so I used it. Read More

Great recipe! It made 6 fluffy light waffles. Sometime ww flour can produce dense breads but one was great. I took the advice of other reviews and used 1/4 cup of apple sauce and 1/4 cup of coconut oil. I still used vanilla extract despite one of the comments and would do it again because i think it needs it. I also added a bit of cinnamon because i love the combination with bananas. I was pleasantly surprised that I did not need to add sugar! For those who like it sweeter if you add some syrup or confectioners sugar it's just right. Definitely a keeper! Read More

This is a great recipe. I made it using the ingredients listed in this recipe, and the waffles turned out light and fluffy and quite tasty. I made this for 2 people, and I had enough to freeze for another meal. I used bananas that had been frozen, and I just thawed them in the fridge and then mashed them. Definitely a keeper! Read More

These were great! I added 4 scoops of protein powder (not sweet just whey protein) used plain yogurt in place of the oil and added 1/3 cup of ground flaxseed to up the nutritional content. They were great- didn't need much syrup because of the bananas. Thanks so much! Read More
