I love bananas and I love to make breakfast, too. These are a refreshing change from your everyday waffles. I like to make big batches up so I can freeze the leftovers and reheat them later for a quick breakfast.
I created this recipe by tweaking one I already had. I added flax seed, substituted whole-wheat flour for some all-purpose, applesauce for some oil and fat-free milk for whole. My family loved the changes, and now it's a favorite. —Judy Parker, Moore, Oklahoma
When I found this recipe in a church cookbook early in my marriage, I was eager to try it. It was an immediate success and has been a family favorite ever since. I even serve these hearty waffles for a different kind of supper.
Waffles packed with turkey, ham, bacon and apricot preserves have so much sweet, smoky love going on. I use frozen waffles to save time, but have at it if you want to put your waffle iron to good use. —Kelly Reynolds, Urbana, Illinois
Our grandkids visit for a week at a time during school breaks and summer vacations. This recipe gives our morning meals some variety and gets the kids to eat nutritious oatmeal.—Lee Hill-Nelson, Waco, Texas
"Finding a homemade waffle recipe that's low in calories is difficult," relates Jessica Beare Edmunds of Kingsland, Georgia. "So I modified a recipe I had, substituting fat-free plain yogurt for the oil or margarine. For a little variety, I sometimes use a flavored yogurt instead of plain."
"Served with butter and our wonderful New Hampshire maple syrup, these waffles go great with bacon or sausage on the side," says Ruth Harrow of Alexandria. "Sometimes I put them together with scrambled eggs and bacon for a terrific breakfast sandwich."
