Banana Nut Buttermilk Waffles


National Waffle Day motivated me to find this Martha Stewart recipe. YUM! It didn’t take as long as I thought it would, either. Here’s the delicious recipe!

Banana Nut Buttermilk Waffles

Serves 4 to 6

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 large eggs, separated
  • 2 cups nonfat buttermilk
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 very ripe bananas (about 1 1/4 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup coarsely chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat a waffle iron. Into a large bowl, sift together flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.IMG_2478
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together egg yolks, buttermilk, butter, and vanilla. Pour into dry ingredients; stir until just combined.IMG_2479 IMG_2482
  3. In a separate bowl, coarsely mash bananas and lemon juice (Cooper particularly enjoyed helping with this part); stir into batter along with the walnuts. IMG_2484IMG_2486 In a medium bowl, beat egg whites with a hand-mixer until stiff but not dry. Fold into the batter.IMG_2488
  4. Ladle about 1/3 cup batter onto each section of the waffle grid; spread batter almost to the edges. Close lid; bake until no steam emerges from waffle iron, 5 to 6 minutes.
  5. Transfer cooked waffles to a baking sheet; place in an oven set to low heat, about 200 degrees, while using remaining batter. Serve.IMG_2497 They were a hit with the whole family!IMG_2493 IMG_2495 IMG_2496
