Clean Eating Bananas Foster Waffles

I got a new waffle maker for Christmas this year. Over the holidays I made a few buttery, white flour waffles and they were fantastic but we're back to everyday healthy eating.

I always make a hot breakfast on the weekend for my family and I came up with a waffle idea last night and I just had to figure out how to make it!

So here it is- Bananas Foster waffles, the clean version!

2 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp coconut sugar
3 cups almond milk (regular milk works fine too)
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon

Bananas Foster Topping
3 bananas, sliced
1 Tbsp coconut oil
3 Tbsp honey
3 Tbsp maple syrup
1 Tbsp pecans (chopped)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1) Whisk flour, baking powder and sugar together in a medium bowl.
2) Whisk in milk, oil and eggs. Add vanilla and cinnamon until the mixture looks like this:

3) Cook in waffle maker until browned. Keep warm in the oven.

And now for the topping....

4) Put coconut oil in frying pan and melt. 

5) Add sliced banana, honey, syrup and cinnamon. 

6) Cook until bananas are caramelized.

7) Put banana mixture on top of the waffles and enjoy!
I even put a bit of butter on my waffle since it's treat day! ;)
