Choc Chip Banana Bread Waffles

Choc Chip VEGAN Banana Bread Waffles! Easy and healthy, the perfect morning breakfast!

I spent a large part of my life waffle-less, so I feel like I have taken it upon myself to make up for lost time. Where I grew up in Brazil waffles just weren’t a thing. It wasn’t on any menu, no one had a waffle iron, and my only chance of ever eating it was when I was in the States. I feel in love with those frozen ones you just pop in the toaster, but I couldn’t exactly smuggle 100 boxes back in my bag, so when I left, so did my access to waffles.

Fast forward a few years, and I am now a proud owner of my very own waffle iron. I know, it’s exciting. I’ve made everything from salad bowls, matcha waffles, and  morning savoury waffles in them and now I’ve also added this banana and choc chip number to the family. It’s:

  • Vegan – and thus dairy free
  • Gluten free if you use a gf flour
  • PERFECT for leftovers – just reheat in the oven with some maple syrup
  • Great way to use up those spotty bananas

Recipe type: Vegan, Gluten Free
Cuisine: Breakfast, Brunch
Serves: 2
  • 1¼ cup flour (can use GF or plain)
  • 1 cup milk of choice (almont, coconut, etc)
  • 1 chia egg (1 tbsp chia seeds + 4 tbsp water)
  • 2 ripe bananas

  • ½ cup chocolate chips (I used 100% dark)
  1. Place all the ingredients, except for the choc chips, into a blender and blend until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Heat up a waffle iron and rub with some coconut oil so that it doesn't stick.
  3. Once iron is HOT, pour in the batter and cook for about 5 minutes - should be done when no more steam is coming out.
  4. Serve with any and all desired toppings - nut butter, coconut yogurt, more banana, choc chips, and maple syrup.
If you want more sweetness, you can add 1-2 tablespoons brown sugar for extra oomf!
