These made an awesome breakfast! Nothing beats brownies for breakfast 🙂
You can also freeze these and thaw in the fridge. I would then toast them for a short time in the toaster —> Crispy waffles!
yield 12 4″ square waffles
1 c. all-purpose flour
3/4 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder, sifted
3 Tbs. sugar
1 Tb. baking powder
3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1 3/4 c. milk
2 ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
2 large eggs, beaten
1/4 cup canola oil (I used applesauce)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Preheat your waffle iron per the instructions from the manufacturer.
2. In large bowl: Whisk Together Dry stuff: flours, germ or flaxseed, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
3. In another medium, Whisk Together Wet Stuff: milk, bananas, oil or applesauce and vanilla. (Be sure to mash the bananas first. I tried to shortcut the procedure by just trying to mush them with the rest and created myself a long cut.)
4. Add wet to dry and mix until combined.
5. Load your waffle iron and cook through. Serve with syrup and sliced bananas.

Hey Mary Ellen, would pumpkin work as a substitute for the banana?
Mary Ellen says
Oh I would think so. People do it all the time and banana bread/pumpkin bread are similar quick bread recipes. I believe the equivalent of 1 medium banana mashed is 1/3 cup. So replace with pumpkin puree accordingly.
