  • Waffle iron
  • Mixing bowls
  • Measuring cups
  • measuring spoons


  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 Tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat your waffle iron according to your waffle iron directions.
  • In a medium sized bowl, mash the bananas well. You want them to be thick and liquidy with few chunks. I like to use a fork to mash the bananas but a potato masher also works well.
    2 ripe bananas
  • Whisk the milk, egg yolks and vanilla into the mashed bananas.
    2 egg yolks, 1 cup whole milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Add the melted butter to the bowl and whisk again.
    6 Tablespoons melted butter
  • Stir in the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, brown sugar and salt. Stir until the batter is smooth.
    1 1/4 cup flour, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 2 Tablespoons brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Pour about ¾ of a cup of waffle batter into your waffle iron. Each waffle iron will be different so check your waffle iron instructions to see how much batter to add. ¾ cup batter is perfect for a regular sized Belgian waffle.
  • Close the waffle iron and cook for about 4-5 minutes. The waffle will be golden brown and pull away easily from the waffle iron. Remove the cooked waffle from the waffle iron using tongs.
  • Serve the waffle while hot and repeat the cooking process with the remaining batter.
