Homemade Banana Quinoa Waffles!
I think this is a fun variation for the waffle-lovers and you get some of that amazing nutrition that quinoa has to offer. Probably a little more filling than your average waffle too. The whole family loves them, especially the kids! Great for breakfast or dinner!
I use white whole wheat flour in this recipe and it works great! You could also try using all-purpose flour or half all-purpose and half whole wheat.
The unique ingredients in this recipe are the cooked quinoa and mashed bananas. Love the extra nutrition, fiber, and protein from the quinoa! The bananas add some additional nutrition, along with some sweetness and flavor too.
Gently folding the stiff egg whites into the batter help the waffles to be nice and fluffy!
My waffle maker makes 6-inch Belgian waffles and I get about six waffles out of this recipe.
Whenever I make waffles, I love to freeze the extra waffles and save them for a time when I need a quick breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Then just thaw them mostly in the microwave, then pop them in the toaster (or a toaster oven, or traditional oven). They will be warm and crispy just like freshly made ones! I also like to do this with my favorite French Toast recipe.
Top these waffles with syrup, fruit, whipped cream, peanut butter, yogurt, whatever you want!
Give this recipe a try next time you have a few ripe bananas to use up! Enjoy!
