These healthy banana waffles are easy to whip together anytime you’re craving something special. They’re light and fluffy and gluten free, flourless, and Paleo. They contain no added sugar.
You can always make a large batch and freeze the extras for a fast breakfast.
These waffles are not crispy. They are soft like a muffin.
I love how easy they are to whip together and don’t require too many ingredients.
Gluten Free Banana Waffles
These waffles are flourless because they are made with flaxseed instead of almond flour or coconut flour.
Plus they are only sweetened with bananas. I love reducing my sugar intake and using fruit is a great way to do that.
You can add some sweeteners if you want.
Flourless Banana Waffles
To me, these healthy banana waffles tastes like a light fluffy banana muffin. I love it!
I want to make a muffin out of this waffle.
Perhaps, that will be my weekend project. I ate the leftover waffles as a snack. They tasted so muffin-like.
Healthy Banana Waffle Recipe
Ingredients needed to make these yummy flaxseed waffles. You can always add some sugar or sweetener and some fruit like blueberries, or nuts.
Paleo Banana Waffles: How to Make them
In a bowl, add the eggs and whisk them. Next, add the mashed banana, and coconut milk, and mix to combine.
Add the flaxseed, baking powder, and salt, and mix.
Let the batter sit for a few minutes. Pour the batter into a greased and heated waffle maker.
The waffle maker should tell you when it is done. If not, it takes a few minutes to cook.
What are Healthy Waffle Toppings?
If you want to use some healthy waffle toppings for these flaxseed banana waffles, I love using peanut butter or almond butter instead of maple syrup.
You can add some fresh berries like raspberries and blueberries.
Can I use Coconut Flour instead of Flaxseed?
Maybe, I think it would work fine. I would start with 2 tbsp’s of coconut flour and then keep adding until the batter looks thick enough.
Coconut flour is highly absorbent and you only need a little bit of coconut flour to replace flour in a recipe.
Can I use Another Milk instead of Coconut Milk?
Yes, you can use any milk you want to make these paleo banana waffles.
I prefer coconut milk because I love the taste and prefer to stay dairy free.
You can use regular milk, almond milk, oat milk, etc.
