For a long time, I really struggled with making breakfast interesting. As I’ve said in many posts before, I am not a morning person, so it’s rare that I want to spend any time cooking on a weekday morning (plus, I’m probably late for something – oops!). So – I’ve learned to make things ahead of time, especially breakfasts. Whether it’s something savory, like these Southwest Breakfast Egg Rolls or Mini Quiche with Hash Brown Crust, or something sweet like these Banana Bread Waffles.

These waffles are great to make ahead of time, freeze or refrigerate, and just toast (or air fry) when you want to eat them. It makes weekday mornings way easier (and a heck of a lot tastier). These are also a WW friendly option, at 2 SP per waffle (on blue/purple, 3 on green). They come together quickly and easily and are full of rich, warm flavors just like a loaf of banana bread.

Making Banana Bread Waffles

These waffles are made with ingredients you likely already have on hand. Yes, I’m looking at you, bananas rotting away on the counter. The ingredients for these waffles are:

  • Ripe bananas (browner the better), mashed
  • Flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon
  • Powdered sugar or maple syrup to sweeten
  • Milk of choice (dairy free works too)
  • Vanilla extract (and maple extract if you have it – it gives a great flavor and doesn’t add any WW SP)
  • Egg to bind it all together
  • Melted Smart Balance (a WW friendly butter replacement – any butter should work)

First, you’ll want to mash your bananas, measure out your dry ingredients, and melt your Smart Balance (or butter). Then, just combine the dry ingredients in one bowl, wet ingredients in another, and then combine until smooth. You’ll then just pull out your handy waffle iron (I use this Dash mini waffle iron and it’s the best $10 I’ve ever spent) and cook waffles through all the way.

Storing, reheating, topping

You can either store these in the fridge or freezer. If storing in the fridge, any airtight container will do. They hold well for up to 5 days in the fridge. To freeze them, lay them flat (not touching) on a sheet pan or plate and freeze until solid. Then, you can store them in a freezer bag without them sticking together.

To reheat, you can either air fry them (I do 370F for about 5 min for a nice crispy waffle), microwave them for a softer waffle, or heat them right on your oven racks at 350F until toasted to perfection.

I like to top these with fresh cut bananas to amp the banana flavor up even more. I also add some chopped nuts and a healthy drizzle of maple syrup. You could also add chocolate chips for an extra decadent treat!

    Omg! I just found your page and it’s absolutely beautiful.
    Quick question love…is it 2SP per plain waffle or with all of the toppings?

    1. Thank you so much, Cindy! It’s 2 SP per plain waffle, then factor your toppings in separately! I used a light syrup, some cut up banana, and nuts. Just the bananas on top doesn’t add any points!
