Banana Bread Waffles with Maple Nut Cream Cheese Spread

by Laura

These banana bread waffles with a maple nut cream cheese spread is a recipe you just may want to make this weekend for breakfast.  I found it over at Willow Bird Baking.  I figured it was the perfect way to use up the over ripe bananas I had on my counter.  So, I elected to use my small square Belgian waffle make to make them.

I was hoping the waffles would be crispy on the outside, but they weren’t.  That may because I used my Belgian waffle maker.  Either way the waffles still tasted fabulous.  I was just anticipating a crispy out side with a tender inside.  Instead the waffle was all tender.

The thing that makes these banana bread waffles especially yummy is the maple cream cheese spread that you put on top.  I put the cream cheese on and then ended up adding a little maple syrup on top of that.  So yummy!  Now, I just sprinkled the nuts in the waffle before cooking them for those who liked nuts.  I also left the nuts out of the cream cheese and had it separate for those who like the nuts so they could just sprinkle on top of their waffles.

Banana Bread Waffles


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 3/4 cups buttermilk or 1 1/2 cups sour cream or plain yogurt thinned with 1/4 cup milk (I did buttermilk)
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 4 Tbsp butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 3/4 cup walnuts, chopped
  • Cooking spray for waffle iron

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, salt, sugar, baking soda, and cinnamon.
  2. In another bowl, mix together the buttermilk (or buttermilk substitute) and the egg yolks. Stir in the butter, mashed banana, and vanilla.
  3. Spray the waffle iron lightly with oil and preheat it.
  4. Add the wet into the dry ingredients and stir until combined.
  5. Beat the egg whites in a separate bowl with a whisk or electric mixer (make sure bowl and mixer are spotlessly clean) until they hold soft peaks. Fold them gently into the batter.
  6. Spread a ladleful or so of batter onto the waffle iron and bake until the waffle is done, usually 3 to 5 minutes, depending on your iron.

these look great! as for making them crispy – try this trick i learned with my favorite ultimate pumpkin waffles….let them cool completely, then toast in your oven or toaster oven for about 5-10 minutes (400 or so). the moisture level of the bananas (or pumpkin or whatever) keeps them from being crispy on the first pass but allows them, like chili, to be even better when reheated! hth! 🙂

Maple cream cheese? I think I want to spread that lusciousness on absolutely everything.

So glad you enjoyed them!
I actually thought my waffles weren’t crisp because I waited so long to eat them (photographing and such!) but it must be that this recipe just produces tender waffles!

I made these for breakfast this morning. My 14-month old daughter ate half a belgian waffle by herself and kept licking her fingers with the cream cheese spread on it. We also spread peanut butter on them (Peanut butter and banana sandwiches). They were delish! Thank you for this recipe!

In the directions it says to add vanilla but I am not seeing that in the ingredients. How much vanilla should be added? This looks wonderful and I would like to make it this weekend!
