Makes 2 waffles, or 4 servings

These waffles are a great breakfast or brunch entree for parties. They can be made ahead of time and reheated just before serving. For an even prettier presentation, garnish each serving with a slice of grilled banana and a sprig of mint.


  • For the Syrup:
  • 2 tablespoons cherry or berry jam
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3/4 teaspoon frozen orange juice concentrate, undiluted
  • For the Waffles:
  • 2 medium ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons corn oil
  • 1/4 cup egg whites
  • 3/4 cup low-fat (2 percent) milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 4 teaspoons toasted and chopped walnuts



Combine all the ingredients for the syrup, mix well, and set aside. Preheat a waffle iron.


Combine the bananas, corn oil, egg whites, milk and vanilla in a bowl and beat until blended. Add the flours, baking powder and salt and mix well.

Spray the hot waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Spoon 3/4 cup of the batter onto the center of the waffle iron. Cook until a golden brown, or until it stops steaming. Repeat with the remaining batter.


Halve each waffle and top each half with 1 tablespoon of syrup and 1 teaspoon of toasted walnuts.
