This easy banana waffles recipe transforms ripe bananas into a golden, fluffy breakfast! Packed with warm cinnamon and a burst of fruit, these waffles are begging to be devoured smothered in maple syrup.


  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons granulated or brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup mashed ripe banana (about 1 banana)
  • ¾ cup milk of choice (dairy or non-dairy)
  • ¼ cup neutral oil (like organic vegetable oil, organic canola, or grapeseed)


  1. Preheat the waffle iron to the high heat setting.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the all purpose flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon, and kosher salt until thoroughly combined.
  3. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, mashed banana, milk, and neutral oil. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk vigorously until the batter is mostly smooth.
  4. Lightly brush oil onto the waffle maker. Immediately, add the batter into the center of the waffle iron (a little over 1 cup for a Belgian waffle maker and a little over ½ cup for a standard waffle maker, or 1/2 cup in a Belgian waffle maker for ruffled edges), then cook according to the waffle iron’s instructions. Remove the cooked waffles and place them on a baking sheet without stacking. Make the waffles to order, or place cooked waffles in a 250°F oven to keep warm. Serve topped with maple syrup. 
  5. Cooked waffles can be frozen; place them in a plastic bag and remove the remaining air with a straw before sealing. To reheat, remove from the freezer and lightly toast in a toaster.
