Whole Wheat Blueberry Banana Waffles

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day, but so often there simply isn't time in our schedule to spend 20+ minutes over a pan putting something together before the hubby and I are dashing out the door.  I'd rather take an extra bit of shut eye and grab something that is still yummy, but easy to throw together.

But most Saturday mornings this changes.  I sleep in a bit (hopefully) and then roll out of bed around 9:00 or 10:00 to make a brunch of sorts.  We had some blueberries and bananas on hand this weekend so I decided on waffles.  Waffles are just a no brainer and there's something so nostalgic about whipping that wonderful waffle maker out, don't you think?

And while it's pretty darn hard to mess up a waffle, I do think these turned out just fabulous.  Most banana waffle recipes have you mash up the banana, but I chopped mine so that the end result was thick chunks of them all throughout the waffle.

Top these babies with more fresh blueberries and banana (and walnuts in my case) and you're good to go!  I used whole wheat flour for a healthier option, but really any all purpose flour will do.

  1. I just made these for breaky for dinner {my fave thing to do}, soooo good! Thanks for the recipe :)

  2. These were great! This recipe was my first attempt at making waffles and I was nervous, but the waffles turned out great. I love the amount of fruit in them.

    I ended up just slightly changing how I made the recipe. Due to some digestive issues I used buttermilk instead of milk and soaked the dry ingredients in the buttermilk overnight.

    I also just threw the whole 6oz container of fresh blueberries into the mix since it wasn't too much over the 3/4 cup of blueberries called for in the recipe.

    Other than that I followed the rest of the recipe exactly.

    Thanks for a great recipe! It hit the spot.
