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 ½ 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 ½ 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.

I am absolutely obsessed with these. I want the picture of those waffles to pop off the page and turn into real life so i can have them for breakfast … i mean a midnight snack. PB and chocolate will NEVER get old will it...
Miss Polkadot says
This is the kind of post I don't want to read. Ever. Because I don't own a waffle maker and have absolutely no space in my kitchen for any more applicances. The fact I can't even find a spot to set up my Vitamix speaks for this 🙁 . On the other hand, these waffles look ridic so I totally want to see posts like that. And I make no sense ...
Sarah @ Making Thyme for Health says
Oh, these look so good!! That's peanut buttery chocolate heaven right there.
And that's so funny that you forgot asking for a waffle maker, haha! A purse would have been nice and all but clearly you'll get good use out of this!
Lauren @ ihadabiglunch says
Haha sometimes I wish I could snap my fingers and have any kitchen appliance right in my apartment. Because I want to use everything I read about but I know I'll use it once and then put it away for ten years haha. But these look to die for! No wonder you had them again for dessert -- I'm imaging a long day at work and then plopping on the couch with a big plate of waffles like this and watching the Bachelor. So that'll be what I'm doing, minus the waffles! I'll be dreaming of them though 🙂 I love that you used almond milk too!
I know I'd been wanting one for the past year--once you doooo get one I'm sure you'll have plenty of recipes to make 🙂
Alysia @ Slim Sanity says
Do I have permission to make waffles for dinner?
YES, any and every day 😀
Kelly @ Kelly Runs For Food says
PB waffles, get in my belly! Every time I see a good looking waffle recipe I wonder why I haven't bought one yet. Then I sadly forget about it until I see another yummy waffle recipe. I'm always running out of eggs, so it's nice to know I wouldn't need them!
Amanda @ .running with spoons. says
Confession: for the longest time, I didn't even know that waffles were supposed to be made with eggs 😆 So this recipe sounds like perfection to me. Well, minus the peanut butter, anyways 😛 And you're making me want to bust out my waffle maker... which has been buried in my pantry for way too long.
Christine@ Apple of My Eye says
Arghhhhh I am drrooooooling right now. Waffles are a HUGE comfort food for me and we would have Norwegian-style ones allll the time when I was growing up. So much goodness. Pinned!
Thanks Christine! They're definitely a comfort food, especially when they contain mass amounts of chocolate.... 😀
Chelsea @ Raw N' Toned says
Omg I love these!! They look so fluffy yet thick! One question though, how do you get them to not stick?? I've sprayed mine with Pam, oiled mine down with olive oil, and it still sticks every time! Maybe I just need a new waffle maker?
I just used non stick spray.... They still stuck a little but I just used tongs and they came off pretty easily.
Christine @ Gotta Eat Green says
These look amazing! We got a waffle maker for our wedding but I haven't cracked open the box yet. I'm not even sure where it is right now... my in laws maybe? Haha our apartment is so small we left 90% of our gifts at our parents house.
AJ @ NutriFitMama says
So funny- I just sold our waffle maker because we never used it. Now I'm seeing all sorts of yummy waffle recipes and we have no waffle maker. 🙂 These look so good!
Heather @Fit n Cookies says
I love your pictures! We don't have a waffle maker.. actually, I bought Aaron one a few years ago for a gift and he has since lost it. I prefer pancakes to waffles, though 🙂
He lost it?! Blasphemy! Thanks Heather!
Tina Muir says
