We are home this Labor Day weekend, with no exotic vacation planned. On top of that it is grey and sad out. See below.

Pia and I were the only ones awake at 7 this morning, so we decided to make up a new waffle recipe and surprise Pete and Coco with breakfast! The natural choice was to use the very brown bananas on the counter top. And that was how these banana waffles were born!

They have a nice banana flavor, and the bonus is that it smells like banana bread while baking!

I served these with fresh sliced bananas and a sprinkling of pecans., (and of course butter and syrup.)

Banana Waffles, makes 8 (smallish) waffles
2 cups flour
1 Tbs sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
8oz butter
1 ½ cups milk
½ cup sour cream
2 bananas
2 eggs, separated (with whites in a big bowl)

Preheat waffle maker.

Whisk the egg whites in a very clean bowl with a wire whisk. (This should take 2-3 minutes of whisking- allternatively you could use an electric mixer)

    YUM! I think I will make these this weekend. I don’t have a cool waffle iron like you, but mine should work just fine. =)

    Perfection! I do NOT cook breakfast except 1-2 times a year and I made these this morning and my family loved them. Thank you! I may have to bump it up to 3-4 times a year.
