"There is honestly no better way to begin the day than with a delicious, hearty breakfast.  So why not kick start your morning off with whole wheat waffles, fresh fruit and sweet maple syrup??  Bananas taste amazing in waffles and give them a great sweetness without all the added sugar.  They also help keep the waffles super moist and really fluffy!  I threw in some of my favorite spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg and even a hint of vanilla."   
Whole Wheat Banana Waffles

Here are your ingredients:

2 cups whole wheat flour
2 eggs, beaten
1 3/4 cup skim milk
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
4 tsp. baking powder
1 ripe banana, mashed
1 Tbsp raw sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Preheat your waffle iron and coat with non-stick cooking spray.  Whisk eggs in a large bowl until fluffy and you see bubbles start to form.  Then whisk together the milk, applesauce, and vanilla with the egg mixture; set aside.  In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and spices.  Beat flour mixture in with the egg mixture along with your mashed banana.

Carefully spoon your batter onto your pre-heated waffle iron and cook until golden brown.  Repeat until batter is finished.  Serve hot with fresh fruit and organic maple syrup, enjoy!
