These peanut butter waffles are fluffy, delicious and made with whole wheat flour and plenty of peanut butter! The best part is that they don't require eggs, so if you're allergic or have simply run out, this recipe was made for you.
What do you do when your brother buys you a waffle maker? You make waffles, obviously. But what do you do when you start making waffles and realize that you're out of eggs? You improvise. I mean, you don't really need eggs to make waffles anyway. No seriously, you don't. These peanut butter waffles are as fluffy as ever and turned out perfectly even without eggs.
WHY THESE PEANUT BUTTER WAFFLES ARE THE BEST
- They're made with whole wheat flour, making them better-for-you
- They're loaded with peanut butter, which just so happens to pair perfectly with maple syrup
- The waffles are fluffy, making them the perfect texture
HOW TO MAKE PEANUT BUTTER WAFFLES
Start by combining the dry ingredients in a large bowl then setting that bowl to the side.
Next, melt the coconut oil. You can do this in a microwave or over the stovetop.
In a separate bowl, use a fork or potato masher to mash the banana, making sure to get out as many lumps as possible. Add the milk, water and vanilla to that bowl and whisk everything together. Then, add the melted coconut oil and peanut butter to that bowl and stir to combine.
At this point, you should preheat your waffle maker and spray it with nonstick spray if needed. A light should turn on once it's hot enough.
Mix the wet and dry ingredients together until you have a smooth batter. I like to use my 1/2 cup measuring cup to scoop the batter into the waffle maker. Cook the waffles until the waffle maker lights up, indicating that the waffles are fully cooked.
HOW MANY WAFFLES DOES THIS RECIPE MAKE?
The amount of waffles depends on your waffle maker and the size of your waffles. I found that when using a 1/2 measuring cup to measure out the batter, I ended up with 4 total waffles. Since the recipe calls for whole wheat flour, these waffles are a bit more filling than most, so 1 waffle per person should be enough.
CAN I MAKE WAFFLE BATTER IN ADVANCE?
Yes! You can make the batter ahead of time, then store it in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. When you're ready to make the waffles, take the batter out of the refrigerator and stir it really well so that the batter is nice and smooth.
