I pretty much always include some kind of whole grain in my breakfast. That being rye, spelt or oats like in this healthy banana waffles recipe. It keeps me going for a long time plus I’m a huge fan of the health benefits that eating a diet with LOTS OF whole grain adds to your body.
Healthy banana waffles – a healthy sweet start
But as much as I’m into those whole grains, I also just LOVE a sweet breakfast. That’s actually what I prefer the most, when it comes to choosing between a savory breakfast like eggs benedict or a sweet one like these healthy banana waffles.
And that, as you might have guessed, it’s a total win, when I can have both at the same time. Whole grains and a sugary twist! But not sugar in real refined sugar. No, sugar in natural sugar from bananas and coconut sugar. Because I dont want my blood sugar to go all bananas on me. Funny, right? Or maybe not so much…
Anyways, hope you like this recipe. It’s a favorite of mine and I probably make every week or so. Also because my 2-year old is just crazy about these banana waffles. PS I’ve served the banana waffles with almond butter, as you can see in the pictures and it is A M A Z I N G.
