If you're saying that you won't jump at the chance to whip out your waffle maker when you see a recipe for Banana Bread Waffles, you're lying.
I didn't lie to myself that I didn't want to make these. If a dense, banana-packed banana bread can be morphed into an enticing waffle shape, heck yeah I'll do it.
I was so excited, which is why I'm sad to say, I'm so disappointed.
These waffles hardly bore any resemblance to the banana bread we know and love. It's not noticeable that they are "banana bread waffles" save for the few lumps of banana scattered randomly throughout. The parts of the waffles that did not have any bananas tasted bland. I needed tons of maple syrup to go with these. The spices used weren't detectable at all, and the waffles were disappointingly soft.
I hate to burst your bubble with my comments but I shall not deter you from trying this out for yourself. Just a note though, the batter is extremely extremely thick- almost like bread dough. I added extra milk to thin it down, but you could also add in more mashed bananas to bolster the banana flavour.
