Before we start talking about these waffles, let’s talk about that waffle maker you’ve been thinking about buying but haven’t done it yet because you don’t think you’ll use it much.
I was in the same boat as you for a while, but then I gave in, and I haven’t looked back. Mine gets lots of use and I don’t regret buying it, at all.
If you’re worried about not having enough recipes to make with it, I have quite a few here on this website:
- Easy Vegan Gluten Free Waffles
- Vegan Gluten Free Pumpkin Spice Waffles
- Vegan Gluten Free Gingerbread Waffles
- Vegan Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Waffles
- Vegan Gluten Free Lemon Blueberry Waffles
As you can see, these banana waffles are the latest in a long line of waffle recipes. As you can also see, I like waffles 🙂
Gather a little collection of waffle recipes, make them all, find your favourites, and put your waffle maker to work. You’ll have no regrets buying it.
This is the one I bought, it’s inexpensive, compact, and works great.
For these banana waffles, I went back to my vegan banana pancakes recipe, adjusted it slightly, and this recipe was the result.
Top your waffles any way you like, for these, I like to top with whatever berries are available and sliced bananas, as shown in the pictures.
And real maple syrup, of course.
And like all of my other waffle recipes, these are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. See the picture below.
When some people hear they’re about to be served a dish that’s vegan or gluten-free or vegan AND gluten-free, they seem to think they should expect something strange-tasting or something with a texture similar to cardboard (*eye-roll*), but these waffles are anything but.
If you have someone you’re serving who thinks that way, they’ll devour these and have no idea that they just had gluten free vegan banana waffles.
Try it, you’ll see 🙂
Will Mashed Bananas Work For This Recipe?
I don’t like banana chunks in my banana breads, waffles, or pancakes, so any time I use bananas in these recipe, I always purée them with a hand blender (a blender or food processor can also be used), until they are smooth and like liquid.
Because the bananas in this recipe are puréed, they also serve as a liquid in the recipe, so be sure that you either puree or mash as best you can so no chunks remain in order for the batter to not be too thick.
Can I Use a Different Flour For This Recipe?
I have not tested with any flour other than the gluten-free blend I link to below. I can tell you that coconut flour WILL NOT work in this recipe. Wheat flour will work but I have not tested the ratios yet, so it may not be a 1:1 replacement.
