Banana Greek Yogurt Waffles are light, fluffy banana waffles packed with the goodness of whole grains. They’re a nutritious breakfast the entire family will love!
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 banana 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.
Greek Yogurt is a staple in my house because of it’s versatility. It’s high in protein and low in fat, so it’s a great way to start your day in with my pear smoothies, Greek yogurt pancakes, and obviously these banana waffles. :).
I also love lightening up my recipes with Chobani® as well. It’s a great substitute for mayo, oil, and sour cream. I love it in my Greek yogurt ranch dressing, twice baked mashed potatoes, and the list goes on.
It adds a wonderful tangy flavor that I love, and I really can’t use it enough.
How to make this recipe
These Greek yogurt waffles are not only delicious and nutritious, they’re incredibly easy to make. It takes all of about 10 minutes to get the batter made, which means you’ll be sitting down to a waffle breakfast in a flash.
This banana waffle 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.
- 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.
- Substitute the maple syrup with your favorite sweetener.
