The Best Healthy Waffles

Updated on July 3, 2012

Healthy Choice

This recipe can be used for pancakes, as well. Just make the batter with either more or less almond milk to make it thicker for waffles and thinner for pancakes. You can also use only one banana, as two bananas just makes it fluffier.

Use this recipe to get a good source of potassium, which helps with muscle activation, recovery and development. The almond milk provides a good source of fiber, vitamin E and low in sugars.

If you want to get even more creative with these waffles, add any type of crushed up nuts to the batter. For some healthy choice toppings, use a spoonful of greek yogurt or applesauce.

2 Ripe Bananas

2 tsp. baking powder

Directions


1-In a large bowl, whisk all ingredients together until you have a smooth batter.

2-Spray waffle maker

      I never thought of using Almond milk. That must add amazing flavor. Voted up and sharing. I have a recipe for whole wheat banana pancakes too. Check it out on my profile if you wish. I am going to try your recipe. :)
