Sometimes all one wants is for things to turn just right (simple, huh?). Well, this is when I make waffles. Easy peasy. Plain right.
I got this recipe quite some time ago here. I did make some minor alterations. (note to self: remember to charge your camera. All I got are 3 pictures). I didn’t have extra ripe bananas so I put mine in the oven for 30 minutes. It is one of the best tricks).
Basic instructions are:
One bowl for dry ingredients. Mix them well. One bowl for wet ingredients (egg whites separated and beat). Fold in bananas and nuts, fold in egg whites.
What goes in:
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup sugar, brown sugar or stevia (what I used)
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 1/2 cups low fat milk
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt (I use light greek yogurt)
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 3 egg yolks
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 egg whites (beat until stiff peaks are formed)
- 3 very ripe bananas, mashed
- 1/2 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped
How to do it:
- Turn the waffle iron on and heat it until volcano hot
- In a bowl, mash the bananas and and the nuts
- In another bowl beat the egg whites
- In yet another bowl mix the dry ingredients
- In (wow) just one other bowl whisk the rest of the wet ingredients.
- Pour the wet ingredients to the dry ones and mix (don’t over beat)
- Fold in bananas and nuts
- Fold in egg whites (those turned out very pretty)
Please do serve with warm maple syrup or honey and melted butter.
