We had such a fun weekend! Saturday we went to an air show at the Kaneohe Marine Corp Base. There were a lot of stunt pilots doing cool tricks, and huge military aircraft. We were hoping to see the Blue Angels, but had to leave before they started flying. Luckily, we were able to see them from my cousin’s deck on Sunday. We were there for my uncle’s 89th birthday party! Malia had such a fun time playing in the pool with her cousins 🙂

On the weekends, I try to make breakfasts that I don’t normally have time for during the week. These waffles are super simple to make and I love the flavors of banana bread in waffle form! The crispy edges and tender interior are just comfort on a plate 🙂 These are made with 100% whole wheat flour and sweetened only with honey and the natural sweetness from the bananas. They were so delicious, especially with some maple syrup on top. You can freeze them and toast them up for a quick and healthy weekday breakfast too!
1 ½ cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
¾ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
2 bananas, mashed
1 ½ cups milk
2 T honey
1 tsp vanilla
2 T melted butter
Mix dry ingredients together in a small bowl (flour through nutmeg). Whisk wet ingredients together and add to dry. Mix just to combine. Pour 1/3 cup of the batter into each side of the waffle maker and cook for 5 minutes or until golden and crisp. Serve immediately with maple syrup.
