Ingredients

Instructions

  • Turn on the waffle iron on medium heat.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, spices and salt and set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the banana, egg yolk, milk and vanilla, and beat until smooth.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, beat the egg whites using a hand mixer until stiff peaks form.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry and gently stir together with a wooden spoon - trying not to over-mix.
  • Gently fold the egg whites into the batter - careful not to over mix.
  • Lightly grease your waffle iron and pour a scoop of the batter into the bottom and close the top.
  • If your waffle iron has a sensor, wait until it indicates that the waffle is done - checking it before you remove it from the iron - if it's golden brown, slightly crispy and comes off easily with a fork, you're good to go!
  • Top with fresh fruit, yogurt, maple syrup or whatever toppings your heart desires. Go wild.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

Cooking times may vary slightly. I had to let mine sit in the waffle iron for about 30 seconds longer than the light indicator told me. We had extras so I cut them up into quarters and froze them - the perfect accompaniment to a smoothie, with almond butter and homemade strawberry-rhubarb jam (recipe coming soon!)
