Coconut Banana Waffles

I’ve had some serious cravings for some waffles all week long and figured it was a sign that I should whip some up when I found my girlfriends old waffle maker while moving into my new place..With only a few simple ingredients, there I was friday night making some Coconut Banana Waffles for the morning. I ended up having a few left over so I wrapped them straight up and put them in the fridge to eat on another special occasion.

Coconut Banana Waffles
 
Ingredients
  • 1½ cup white whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons aluminum-free baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¾ cup chopped walnuts ⅓ cup melted coconut oil
  • ¾ cup coconut milk
  • ¾ cup overripe mashed bananas (2 small bananas), plus more for topping
  • 2/ 3 apple sauce
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Heat waffle iron on high heat, about one notch down from the highest setting.
  2. In a medium bowl mix together the flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, sea salt and nutmeg. Stir in the chopped walnuts.
  3. In a double-broiler, combine the melted coconut oil and coconut milk. Microwave for 30 seconds, or until the mixture is lukewarm. Whisk in mashed banana, egg, and vanilla extract.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to over mix. Pour batter onto the heated waffle iron, enough to cover the center and most of the central surface area. Once the iron has stopped steaming and the waffle is deeply golden, transfer it to a cooling rack or baking sheet. Don't stack your waffles on top of each other, or they'll lose crispness. Place in oven to keep warm. Repeat.
  5. Top with sliced bananas and pure maple syrup, and serve.
