Banana Bread Waffles for Mom Print Recipe Print Recipe


My husband has <recently> declared that weekends are for waffles.

That is why I love him, especially now when all I want is waffles. every. single. day.

However, since he’s the one making them, we’ll see how long that lasts…



The other morning I decided to combine my obsession with banana bread and waffles. Oh helloooo there lover! The bananas are just enough to sweeten the waffles, then the walnuts add a nice nuttiness to them. I’ll take banana bread in waffle form, any day.

So guys, mothers day is on Sunday <that’s a reminder for any forgetful’s reading this…> Although we’ve got a bun in the oven, we’re actually not really celebrating Mother’s day this year, except for waffles <obviously> and a trip to the Farmers Market. Done, I’m happy.


ps. I’m currently up in Vancouver, BC visiting my girlfriend who just had a baby 6 days ago. Now, how’s that for a perfect Mother’s Day gift?! I’m so in love and smitten over this baby I can’t even imagine how it’s going to be when we have our own. Although, my friend has made this whole motherhood thing look pretty easy so she’s setting the bar pretty high.


All you mothers, soon-to-be and current, you ladies are superstars and deserve the absolute royal treatment! or perhaps a pedicure will do.

Happy weekend to all! Now hurry and go make some waffles.

    Oh and P.S.

    If you’re interested, I run a allergy-friendly blog hop each week (along with 6 other bloggers).  This would be such a great recipe submission.  I know others would benefit from this recipe (and your blog).  Perhaps we will see you this week (blog hop opens Tues. evening and runs for 3 days).  Thanks so much Lisa!  🙂
