Banana Waffles (Low Carb & Gluten Free)

This post contains affiliate links including Amazon affiliate links.

To my surprise today is national Pancake Day.  I didn’t even know they had a day devoted to pancakes.  I expect a day to be devoted to chocolate, peanut butter, stuff like that but not pancakes.  I joined Foodbuzz two months ago and I see bloggers post recipes for these “food theme” days but it’s too late by then for me participate.  I finally kinda get to be part of it.  A waffle is like the cousin to the pancake?

The unique feature of this recipe is that it is sweetened by nature.  The banana was the only source of sweetness.  Amazingly, this was a first for me!  I was making up this recipe and I had Xylitol in front of me ready to be mixed in the bowl but then I held back.  I thought maybe if I use more banana it will be fine.  Next time, I feel I could cut back on the amount of baking powder.  It’s a waffle, so it doesn’t need to puff up that much.


To me this Banana Waffle 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 did put what I was too full to eat in the fridge for later and I ended up eating them as a snack.  They tasted so muffin like:D

    Hey there

    I have been searching around for some low carb breakfast items like waffles that were also cheap to make. And yours hit the spot!

    Most recipes I have seen contain expensive items like stevia, erythritol, almond flour etc ( I’m poor). Yours is the only one that contains normal, ready-to-get ingredients. Thank u so much!!! 🙂

    This is my favorite waffle recipe! All natural, quick and easy to make, and absolutely delicious! My husband in both our little girls gobbled them up immediately! However, the one problem I had was with the serving amount. The recipe says it makes 4 servings, but despite doubling the recipe it only yielded 3 1/2 waffles. And I have a standard size waffle maker. Other than that, this recipe is fabulous!
