All you need is love

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.
