Vegan, paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free
A couple of days ago, Panos asked for waffle for breakfast. I was out of sweet potatoes to make my sweet potato waffles but I had bananas. So I made those vegan paleo banana waffles. They are crispy in the outside and moist in the inside. They were a total success! And you can make them in the blender! So yeah I will call this a win-win.
What you will need
- Banana. This is the main sweetener of the waffles and it makes them very moist.
- Almond milk. You can use any milk of your choice, dairy or non-dairy to keep it vegan
- Alternative flours. I love baking with alternative flours. This time I used almond and tapioca flour. I would not recommend to substitute with any other flour as the mixture might need different amounts of flour.
- Chia. If you don’t have chia on hand you can use grounded flaxseed. When chia soak on the almond milk, they react as a binder. Personally I prefer chia over flaxseed as I dont like the taste of flaxseed that much.
- Honey. This is totally optional. If you serve this to a baby less than one year old you should avoid honey. You can always substitute with maple syrup.
How I served it
If you follow me for a long time on Instagram, you might have noticed that Panos is obsessed with his eco-friendly bamboo plates* by Bubba Boo. He loves to pick on which plate he will have his meal. Today he picked the panda! So I served half a waffle along with fruits and topped with coconut flakes. And, for myself I served a couple of sunny side up eggs on the side. It was a total hit!
