Health Highlights


2 cup All-purpose white flour (unbleached)
1 1/2 tbsp packed Brown sugar
4 tsp Baking powder (non-aluminum)
1/4 tsp Salt
1 tsp Cinnamon
2 large Egg
1/2 cup Butter, unsalted (melted)
1 3/4 cup Partly skimmed milk, 2% M.F. (can use almond or soy milk)
2 medium Banana (s) (very ripe, mashed)


Preheat waffle iron.

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon; set aside.

In a medium bowl, vigorously whisk eggs for about 2 minutes til they're light and frothy. (Or use an electric mixer.) Add the flour mixture, butter, and milk. Whisk til smooth. Stir in the mashed bananas.

Pour batter onto hot waffle iron, using about 1/4 cup per waffle. (My waffle iron makes two at a time but some make four.) Bake for approximately 5 minutes or til waffles are browned. (If your waffle iron has an indicator light, wait for the light to come on.)

Carefully remove waffle and serve hot with syrup, if desired.

*If a thinner batter is desired, you can add up to another 1/4 cup milk.
