*Don’t worry, if you don’t have a waffle iron you can use the mix to make pancakes instead*
What to do with overripe bananas!? I think everyone has asked themselves this question at least once. Banana bread is our go to solution because it’s easy and delicious. But it can get a bit boring and it’s not as healthy as we think (especially when we add loads of chocolate chips). The recipe below has no sugar, no eggs and no butter but tastes amazing.
- 1 1/4 cup of unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tsp of white or apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup of canola or coconut oil
- 1/4 cup of maple syrup or honey
- 1 cup of mashed bananas
- 1/2 cup of bran oats
- 1 3/4 cup of flour
- 1 1/2 tsp of baking powder
- A pinch of salt
- Optional additions: 1 tsp of ground flax seed, 1 tsp of chia seeds, 1/4 cup of walnuts…get creative!
- Cooking oil to spray the press or the pan
Turn on your waffle iron to medium heat.
Mix the vinegar with the milk and let it curdle. Add the oil, maple syrup or honey and the mashed bananas. Mix until smooth and set aside. In a seperate bowl, combine all the remaining (dry) ingredients. Gradually incorporate the liquids to the dry ingredients and mix until most of the lumps disappear. Spray the waffle iron with some oil and pour about 1/2 cup of the mixture in. If you’re making pancakes, just cook in a hot pan over medium heat and flip the pancakes when the sides are cooked and bubbles start to rise up.
I love eating these as a snack with peanut butter and jelly! You can also just have with fresh fruit and yogourt!
