Peanut Butter and Banana Waffles

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 so I can freeze the leftovers and reheat them later for a quick breakfast. —Christina Addison, Blanchester, Ohio

    I followed the recipe exactly, and I thought they turned out great. Very fluffy and good flavor. I got 5 waffles, not 16 like it says. Maybe my waffle maker is just big.

    I made this recipe this morning to change it up for the kids, and they were a big hit. They turned out exactly as pictured (so I hope the other reviewer gives it another shot, because it's possible they made an error). The peanut butter didn't shine through quite as much as I expected, but it was still recognizable. I froze the remaining waffles to eat on another day, and my daughter has already checked the freezer to make sure they are "still there".

    I retried this recipe after getting a new waffle maker for Christmas. I left my original comment below. I still cut the recipe in half, I'm not sure what I did the first time, but they came out so much better this time!! Thanks to the other reviewer for the encouragement! My only suggestion this time would be to add peanut butter chips maybe in place of the peanut butter. They tasted really good but not a dominant PB taste.I cut this recipe in half, I'm hoping I messed something up because they did not look like the picture at all. They weren't fluffy at all and the flavor was very bland. I added butter and honey after they were done. Not sure if I'll try these again or not.
