Peanut Butter and Banana Waffles

So many people told me they liked my Healthy Blueberry Waffles so I thought I’d post another one of my favourites, peanut butter and banana waffles. I’m loving anything peanut butter and banana flavour recently, and this recipe is especially good. The waffles have no added sugar, but have sweetness from the banana, so are great for kids. I add maple syrup to my portion afterwards, but the kids like them without syrup. The peanut butter adds protein and healthy fat to the waffles, and the banana adds fibre and vitamins, and makes them more filling. Feel free to replace some of the flour with oats or oat flour if you like, like in my blueberry waffle recipe, it’s nice either way. Try to use a peanut butter without added salt and sugar to make it as healthy as possible. I like Meridian brand peanut butter, which is made with 100% roasted peanuts and is so so delicious!
