Crispy on the outside, light and tender on the inside. These easy vegan banana waffles are made even tastier with hints of cinnamon and vanilla. The perfect way to start the weekend, freeze any leftovers for quick weekday breakfasts!
3/4cupchopped nuts, optional(e.g. pecans or walnuts)
Preheat waffle iron according to manufacture's instructions.
In a large bowl, sift and whisk the flour, sugar, cornstarch, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt together.
In a medium sized bowl, mix the mashed bananas, plant-based milk, oil and vanilla together. Pour in the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix just until blended. It's okay if it's lumpy. Stir in the nuts if using. Do not overmix.
Cook the waffles according to the waffle iron manufacturer's instructions, or until the waffle iron stops steaming. These waffles are a slightly darker colour when cooked at higher temperatures because of the sugars from the bananas. You may wish to use a medium setting. Don't stack your waffles or they will lose their crisp exteriors.
Serve with fresh bananas, chopped nuts or fresh fruit, and maple syrup.
