How to make this banana waffle recipe
I considered a few things when deciding to try this waffle idea.
- I wanted to use egg whites, but whip them into stiff peaks. This gets the air into the batter, to make them fluffier.
- I wanted chocolate and peanut butter, because it goes so well with banana flavors. So, I added chocolate chips and peanut butter powder.
- I used the peanut butter powder to cut down on the calories, without losing the peanut butter flavor.
- I used cream of tarter to help the egg whites set without deflating too quickly.
- I used oats instead of flour to make them gluten free.
- I used banana for texture and flavor.
- I used sugar free chocolate syrup to drizzle on top.
- I used extra peanut butter powder mixed with water to drizzle on top.
The final recipe looked like this:
- Egg whites plus cream of tarter- whipped until stiff peaks form.
- Oats, peanut butter powder, and banana, mashed together.
- Folding the egg whites into the banana mixture.
- Then using 1/4 cup at a time, cook on a mini waffle iron, like the dash mini waffle maker. Use 1/2 cup if you are using a standard waffle maker.
