Not a very original name, but they really are the best. I love these waffles. My family loves these waffles. And our neighbors are jealous of the banana-nutty aroma wafting from the kitchen window when I make these waffles. Or so I like to think.
Meet my lovely assistant, Chubby Grubs.
Anyways, on to the recipe. First, in a large bowl, combine 2 cups of flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar, and 1 tablespoon of baking powder.
pyrex measuring cup, pour 1 1/2 cups milk. Add 1/2 cup of plain yogurt.
Peel and mash 3 medium bananas.
This recipe yields about 18 waffles. That's a lot! And even though ChubGrub downed 3 within minutes, we still had plenty leftover.
If you can't polish off 18 waffles in one morning, let them cool and then keep them in a gallon ziploc bag in your freezer.
Here's the recipe written out in a friendlier version if you'd like to try it.
