Why We Love These Waffles

It’s simple: they’re hearty, delicious, and there’s no extra dishes dirtied with seperating eggs to whip the whites. Some waffles recipes need that, this ain’t them. The combination of oat and whole-grain flour gives these a unique flavor and fullness. Being naturally sweetened with ripe bananas is a plus (without too much of a banana flavor, I don’t even taste them at all)!

Meet the Waffle Maker

Alright I’ll admit it, I love me some fancy kitchen gadgets. But, hear me out. I’ve wanted to throw every waffle maker I’ve owned out the window while I’m using it and I have never, ever felt like that with my Breville waffle maker. Come to think of it, I’ve never felt like that with any of my Breville small appliances. But we’re here to discuss the waffle maker today, and my friend…it’s glorious. It makes 4 waffles at once, has various settings, and even a cute little “a bit more” button. Yes, it seriously says exactly that and I adore it.

If you’re like me and avoid making waffles because you can’t stand the making them part, do yourself a favor and budget for this gem. You could even do what we did and find one used for much less. You’ll be thanking yourself when you make these whole-grain buttermilk waffles. Is this waffle maker necessary? Absolutely not, if you’re thinking it’s not I’m pretty sure you have more patience than me and that’s worth celebrating.

Freezer-Friendly and Customizeable

Easily halve or double this recipe to feed fewer folks or stock up the freezer. These are very filling on their own, but we tend to eat more on the first day and then load them up with extra protein from peanut butter when we reheat them. If you decide to freeze them, pop them in a single layer on cookie sheets protected with plastic wrap and freeze. Once frozen (don’t forget about them!), place them in a freezer safe bag like Stasher Bags and they’ll be ready when you want them!

If you’re eating the leftovers the next day, you can toss them straight into a Stasher Bag instead. These reheat great, and make great leftover breakfast for busy mornings!
