I know it’s not even Christmas yet, but I’m excited about the new year.  I always breathe a big sigh of relief after the holidays are over so that life can get back to normal, and my diet can get back on track.  I love baking, but I’m already tired of looking at Christmas cookies.

Bring on the nutritious food!

These Whole Wheat Banana Greek Yogurt Waffles are just that — nutritious.  They’re hearty and wholesome because they’re packed with whole grains, banana, and plenty of protein from one of my favorite ingredients ever…Chobani® Non-Fat Plain Greek Yogurt.

Chobani® is the perfect ingredient for so many reasons.  There’s a whopping 44% of the daily value for protein, which is 22% more than the amount of protein in regular yogurt.  And if that’s not enough, Chobani® contains three probiotics and no artificial flavors or sweeteners.

I picked up a 32 ounce container of Chobani® Non-Fat Plain Greek Yogurt while shopping at my local Walmart store, because I go through it quick!

Chobani® Non-Fat Plain Greek Yogurt is a staple in my house because of it’s versatility.  Chobani® is high in protein and low in fat, so it’s a great way to start your day in smoothies, pancakes, and obviously waffles. 🙂   I love the light, fluffy texture that Chobani® lends to baked goods and I incorporate it into all of my muffins and baked donuts.

I love lightening up my recipes with Chobani® as well, and it’s a great substitute for mayo, oil, and sour cream.  I use it in my dips, salad dressings, mashed potatoes, and the list goes on.  Chobani® adds a wonderful tangy flavor that I love, and I really can’t use it enough.

Now that we’ve talked about Chobani®’s amazing versatility, let’s discuss these waffles.  Not only are they delicious and good for you, they’re incredibly easy to make.  It takes all of about 10 minutes to get this batter made, which means you’ll be sitting down to a waffle breakfast in a flash.

This recipe also uses minimal ingredients — most of which you probably already have on hand — because simplicity is where it’s at!

All you need to do to whip up these waffles is whisk the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt together in a large bowl.  Next, whisk the eggs with the Greek yogurt and milk in a medium bowl until well combined, then whisk in the oil, brown sugar, and banana until incorporated.  The last step is to add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir just until incorporated.

Cook the waffles according to the manufacturer’s instructions for your waffle iron, and breakfast is served.

I told you these waffles were easy. 🙂

If you happen to have any waffles left, they’re very freezer friendly.  Simply freeze in a single layer on wire rack, then once frozen you can transfer them to a zip top plastic bag. I often double the batch just so I can freeze half, then all we have to do is pop them in the toaster in the morning and enjoy.  🙂

Obviously I’m smitten with Chobani® — it’s a product I trust, and something that I always have on hand.  The culinary options are endless with this ultra creamy, all-natural yogurt.

And I don’t know about you, but with fluffy, healthful waffles like these in front of me, it makes me even more excited for the new year ahead.  Nutritious eating never looked so good. 🙂
