Banana Waffles with Macadamia Nut Crema / by lee tilghman

Heaven On Earth

These fresh, sweet, light & fluffy waffles are to die for- they are intensely chewy, super light, and almost dessert-like! Last month I had a friend in town and she is a waffle and pancake connoisseur. These were by far some of the best waffles we've both ever had. And that, my friends, is quite a statement. 

I made some macadamia nut cream from My New Roots to accompany such a decadent breakfast. Also added some cacao nibs, cherries,  and maple syrup on top just to out-do ourselves. 

Waffle Recipe:

  • Trader Joe's waffle mix (follow instructions on box)
  • 1 very ripe banana, mushed to a pudding

Simply make the waffle mix following instructions, and then add your mashed banana. Pour into a waffle maker and heat until golden brown.

Macadamia Nut Crema Recipe:

  • 1 cup raw, unsalted macadamia nuts
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Toss all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend on high until smooth. Seal in an air-tight container for up to 3 days. But it probably won't last that long because this stuff is so good

Toppings: cherries, cacao nibs, maple syrup
