Because there’s no such thing as too much banana bread in this world, we came up with a wholemeal flour toasts up all golden, then gets topped by chopped pecans and—yes—more ripe bananas. If you like, make extra to stash in your freezer.


Plain wholemeal flour

1 cup(s), (150g)

Baking powder

1½ tsp

Ground cinnamon

1 tsp


1 small, divided


1 large, lightly beaten


½ cup(s), (125ml)

Canola oil

3 tsp


¼ cup(s), chopped, toasted (30g)

Oil spray

4 x 3 second spray(s)


  1. Preheat a standard-sized waffle maker and lightly spray with oil. Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and ¼ teaspoon salt in a medium bowl.
  2. Mash 1½ bananas in a separate medium bowl until smooth. Whisk in the egg, buttermilk and oil. Add banana mixture to flour mixture and stir to combine.
  3. Carefully pour about ⅓ cup of the batter onto bottom surface of waffle maker. Pull down cover to enclose waffle. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until lightly golden. Carefully transfer waffle to a plate using a rubber spatula and cover with a clean tea towel to keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter to make 4 waffles in total, lightly spraying cooking surfaces with oil in between.
  4. Cut remaining bananas into thin slices. Top waffles with banana slices and pecans to serve.
