Banana Nut Waffles

Last Sunday was absolutely glorious – It was sunny outside, the day was free to do whatever I wanted and I started the day with a big beautiful big glass of Kickin’ Kale Juice … just before enjoying these OMG SO GOOD waffles.

(FYI – I always wait about 20 mins after drinking juice before having anything else because I like the juice to do it’s magic. Consuming other foods at the same time complicates the digestion of the nutrients in the juice. Following this principle allows the vitamins and minerals in the juice to reach the cells of your body faster…which always gives me an immediate burst of energy – the wait is worth it!)

This waffle recipe uses almond flour which is an amazing substitute if you are trying to eat less wheat products and/or gluten free.  I do include eggs in this recipe (if you are vegan, please don’t freak out on me) – like I’ve said before – I eat about 90% plant-based but do include the occasional high quality fish/meat and/or organic dairy products in my diet.

I haven’t tried these waffles using an egg substitute like flax or chia…. so if you decide to – please let me know how they turn out!

This recipe takes less than 10 mins and you got sweet & nutty WAFFLES! Yum.

Much to my surprise and delight, KitchenAid recently sent me their (very fancy) waffle baker to try out and my goodness – this thing is CRAZY. It’s like the Ferrari of waffle bakers – industrial strength if you will, and has all the bells and whistles you could ever want.  If you have a family or want to invite people over to brunch – this appliance is for you.


It makes 2 huge Belgium waffles (or 4 servings) in about 4 mins, has a timer so you don’t burn your waffles and a perfect gauge to tell you when it is warmed up just perfectly. It’s really fun to flip sides once the batter is in too.

My waffle recipe turned out PERFECT using it…so I (kindly) asked KitchenAid to host a giveaway…I was super HAPPY they said yes!
