Waffles – who doesn’t love waffles?!
Everyone loves waffles. Settled it is.
Speaking of waffles – I know you really love my Pumpkin Waffles. But pumpkin in April? Eh, a little strange.
Oh, and the Banana Oatmeal Waffles.
You know, the only logical next step really was to create a recipe combining waffles AND bananas AND chocolate.
So, here you go: Healthy Chocolate Chip Banana Waffles ?
While I was making and photographing this recipe to post on the blog, I had to think of a silly TV show nobody but myself probably even remembers.
I am, of course, talking about Two and a Half Men.
I admittedly like it, I secretly love it, and I cannot get Charlie Sheen as Charlie Waffles out of my head, like, ever.
But, as they rightfully say in the episode: Everybody loves waffles.
These are made with whole wheat flour, a little brown sugar (or raw sugar, if you’re feeling so inclined), a couple tablespoons of oil, mashed banana and a pinch of nutmeg.
There’s really nothing hard about them, all you have to pay attention to is not over-mixing the wet and dry ingredients. A few lumps in the batter are REALLY fine, I promise, much better than ending up with dense and rubbery waffles.
We make these all the time, but for the blog I wanted to spice them up a little bit.
If you can call adding chocolate “spicing it up”?
Well, in my opinion you can, because chocolate is almost as good as waffles are.
Don’t argue with me here, they didn’t call him “Charlie Chocolate” after all.
Though it IS “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, so maybe I should just be quiet now and hand over the recipe for these beautiful brunch-babies, right? ?
