If you are looking for a naturally sweetened treat to make for your little one, these blueberry banana waffles make the perfect breakfast or snack. Their soft texture makes them great waffles for babies and the bursts of blueberries add the perfect touch of sweetness!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

Here is what you’ll need to make these blueberry banana waffles:

Ingredients to make blueberry banana waffles
  • Banana: The main source of sweetness for these waffles. Make sure to use a banana that is very ripe with several brown spots. The riper the banana, the sweeter the waffles!
  • Rolled Oats: I love baking with rolled oats as they are packed with nutrition! Gluten-free rolled oats make these waffles gluten-free.
  • Eggs: Used as a binder to help hold the waffles together.
  • Cinnamon: Provides an extra warm spice and subtle sweetness.
  • Vanilla Extract: For a little added flavor to the waffles.
  • Oil: I used avocado oil in this recipe, but any mild tasting oil works as well.
  • Baking Powder: Leavening agent to help the waffles rise.
  • Blueberries: For added bursts of sweetness in every bite!

PROCESS

  1. Blend all of the ingredients (minus the blueberries) together until smooth. 
  2. Stir in the blueberries until they are combined into the batter.
  3. Pour a small amount of batter into a waffle maker and cook according to your waffle maker instructions.
  4. Slice into strips, or serve as is!

STORAGE INSTRUCTIONS

Let the waffles completely cool and store them in an airtight container for up to 2 days in the refrigerator. To freeze, store in a freezer-safe Ziploc bag for up to 2 months. You may toast them to reheat or simply microwave for 20-30 seconds, or until warmed through!

SUBSTITUTIONS

  • Eggs: You may substitute the eggs with unsweetened applesauce. Replace each egg with 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce. You may also replace the eggs with flax eggs. To make one flax egg, combine 3 tablespoons of water with 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed. Let the mixture sit in the fridge for about 15 minutes until it forms a gel-like texture.
  • Oats: You may replace the oat flour with all-purpose flour or whole wheat flour. I used old-fashioned rolled oats in this recipe, but you can also use quick oats, though the amount needed may vary.
  • Blueberries: You may replace the blueberries with any other type of berries, or you may omit them altogether! They add a nice burst of sweetness, but taste great without them as well!

RECIPE NOTES

  • I use this nutribullet blender to blend the ingredients into a smooth batter.
  • Do not overfill your waffle maker with batter. The waffles will rise slightly during cooking and may not cook properly if overfilled.
  • These waffles are perfect waffles for babies because of their soft texture. If you prefer a slightly crispier waffle, I would suggest cooking them for a few minutes longer, or toasting the waffles when reheating.
  • You may need to spray your waffle iron with a little cooking spray depending on the type of waffle maker you have to prevent sticking. I love using this mini waffle maker or this multi mini waffle maker to small eggo-sized waffles and no spraying is needed!

  1. Hi! My kiddo loves your waffles, but hates fruit inside them. Would blending in the berries change the result? Thank you.

    1. Hi Bridgette! Blending in the berries would add more moisture into the mixture and may alter the texture of the waffles of the slightly, but you could give it a shot! You could also try omitting the berries (they will still have enough sweetness from the banana) or swapping it out with different mix-ins like finely chopped nuts, mini chocolate chips, etc.😊
