Out of all the foods I make for breakfast waffles are the most requested in this household! I like making them homemade with my Belgium waffle maker and a store bought waffle mix. I am always trying little tweeks to the original recipe and these Banana Walnut Waffles with Caramel Sauce taste amazing! They taste like my Grandma’s banana bread which I absolutely love. The fun part about this recipe is that I entered it into the Chiquita Cooking Lab Contest! #ChiquitaCookingLab There is a $4000.00 winner each week and it’s easy to enter your own recipe!
I think bananas are the perfect addition to these waffles. I even added a few sliced bananas on top too! I have a banana loving 9 year old, who even dressed up as the Chiquita banana lady one year for Halloween, give this recipe two thumbs up!
Here is the recipe:
