It's safe to say we can all agree that waking up to waffles is pretty wonderful. That's why our whole-wheat banana ones are sure to be such a huge hit in your household. If you don’t have a food processor (as listed below), try using a blender. Alternatively, place the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Before mixing in the banana, mash it in another bowl and whisk in the remaining wet ingredients. You'll then stire the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until smooth, for about 2 minutes. You'll get 4 waffles from this recipe, but if you're feeding a larger group, double it!
