This recipe will ultimately sweeten your life, well, not literally. For the longest time, I have wanted to share this recipe with you. And today seem to be an excellent day to do just that, the weather is good, so why not? Besides, this is a great recipe to make with little ones, trust me; they will love it! I hope you will enjoy this recipe as I have.
In reality, this a super easy-to-make healthier waffle recipe with the nutrients you need and the fluff you do not need.

Growing up back home in Nigeria my mother would always make banana pancakes. In fact, it remains one of my fondest childhood memories. On the one hand, it’s pancake, hello! On the other hand, it’s made with banana! Click To Tweet


Well, let’s get on this sweet banana waffle ASAP before you change your mind!

Yum. Yum. Yum! These were so good, please let know when you try them.

Here’s what you need:


Banana is a must-have for this dish, remember, it is called banana-oat waffle for a reason, hello! Banana is great for you; it contains a right amount of fiber plus other antioxidants.

Additionally, it contains vitamins C, and B6, potassium, magnesium, copper, fiber and a minimal amount of fat.


in other to make this dish, you will need the desired amount of ground old fashion oats. I usually grind the oats myself but am sure there is some retailer out there that sells ground oats.

The nutritional composition of oat is well balanced; it contains good carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, mineral and other essential compounds as well. Additionally, oats can lower your cholesterol.

Given all the benefits of oats mentioned above, I love making this recipe with oats instead of regular flour.


Everyone knows eggs and hopefully eats it. Despite being labeled as “bad” because of its high cholesterol content, eggs are right for your health, and the cholesterol in eggs is good cholesterol. It is important to realize that eggs contain high-quality protein and other antioxidants.


Use the type of milk that works for you. I eat dairy so I would generally use whole milk and because I primarily make the sweet banana-oat waffle for my kids; hence the whole milk. I think 2% milk will work just fine as well as plant-based milk. The nutritional components of dairy milk essential to the human body; milk has a high content of protein, fat, vitamins and other minerals.

Besides, you would need some sugar, vanilla extract, baking powder, nutmeg, ground cinnamon, a pinch and vegetable oil or butter.

Feel free to serve us these waffles with even more bananas. YUM!

Now, if you are ready, let’s make some healthy waffles together!

Sweet Banana-Oat Waffle Recipe

This sweet banana-oat waffle recipe is so good. If you have little ones they will love it! Top it up with more banana or some berries.


  • 3-medium/big size Bananas
  • 3 cups of Oat (ground; I usually use old fashioned oats). If using minute/quick oats then increase up 3 and half to 4 cups.
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 cup of Milk
  • 1/4 - 1/3 cup of Maple Syrup (depending on how sweet you want them. Remember banana is a natural sweetener)
  • 1 teaspoon of Vanilla extract
  • 3 teaspoons of Baking powder
  • 1/3 cup of coconut oil.
  • 1/8 – ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Ground cinnamon (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg (I love the smell of nutmeg)


  1. Turn on your clean and ready to use waffle maker to warm up as you get ingredients ready.
  2. Get a large bowl and add all the dry ingredients (ground oats, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt) into it. You may avoid adding salt if you are using salted butter.
  3. Peel and roughly cut 3 medium size bananas and add into the blender. Also, into the same blender throw in all liquid ingredients (milk, eggs, vanilla extract and melted butter or vegetable oil), blend on high speed for less than a minute.
  4. Pour your liquid blend unto the dry ingredients. Use a wooden spoon to gently combine. Ensure all ingredients are well combined, however do not over mix. Use a good scoping spoon to scoop your mixture into the waffle maker, cover and then watch out for the green light. Give your mixture the required time to cook; as soon as the light on your waffle maker goes from red to green, then, your sweet banana-oat waffle is ready. Gently remove from the waffle maker and place on a cooling rack. Enjoy with more fresh bananas, syrup or both as you wish. 😁


You can substitute oats with regular flour if you so desire. But, this banana and oats combo is excellent; healthy + yummy. I do love it!

This waffle would be a little lighter than most of the waffles you make; please be cautious while removing it from the waffle maker to avoid tearing it apart.☺️

The number of waffles would typically depend on the type of waffle maker you use. I would usually make two and a half sets using a big Belgian waffle maker, which amounts to 10 waffles pieces. There are many varieties of waffle makers out there in the market. Not even a joke!
