These Whole-Wheat Banana Nut Bread Waffles are the perfect way to start your day!
Spring is in the air. Does anyone else feel it? We’ve had a REALLY mild winter here in Maine this year, especially compared to the 120+ inches of snow that got dropped on us last year. But I’m not complaining, and I’m ready for the flowers to start blooming and the weather to warm up.
Even though we’re not there quite yet, I’m feeling the urge to get out of the house more, which means on the weekends, I want a good homemade breakfast that does four things:
- Tastes good!
- Easy to make.
- Quick to make.
- Easy to clean up.
Lately, those four guidelines have equated to WAFFLES! I have a serious waffle addiction right now, and I’m loving trying out a bunch of different flavors, including these here Whole-Wheat Banana Nut Bread Waffles. I absolutely love banana bread, and I got to thinking that it would make a pretty fantastic waffle!
Hearty, filling, and flavorful in every way, and the best part is that thanks to PAM Cooking Spray, there’s hardly a mess to clean up when I’m done. This means more time to get out and enjoy the day with my family! PAM Cooking Spray is essential when making a great waffle. It allows the waffles to get the crispy golden shell and pull away from the iron cleanly!
