Homemade Strawberry Banana Waffles

Sponsored Content

You can currently find lots of wonderful fresh berries in season in your local Walmart’s fresh produce section, including strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries! To take advantage of the great variety of berries in store, plus our new-found love for waffles, we decided to try making strawberry banana waffles. My husband recently acquired a waffle iron and has absolutely been loving making waffles! We’ve even had a few dinner meals with waffles – chicken and waffles included! So, it was only right that we step it up a notch and try our hand at making homemade strawberry banana waffles using fresh strawberries and adding a bit of walnuts as well. Ready to give this simple recipe a try?

Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cups vegetable oil
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 ½ cups buttermilk

Homemade Strawberry Banana Waffles

Directions

Turn on your waffle iron and let it preheat. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar.

In a medium bowl, whisk together oil, egg yolks, vanilla extract, and buttermilk. Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir until incorporated.

Homemade Strawberry Banana Waffles, Ingredients

Add egg whites, mashed banana, strawberries, and walnuts into the mixture and stir until ingredients are all blended. Try not to over-stir the batter. It’s fine if a few lumps remain in the batter.

Cook waffles according to your waffle iron instructions, remembering to grease the iron with cooking spray before pouring the batter.

When serving, you can add more fresh strawberries, bananas, and even blueberries alongside your strawberry banana waffles. All will taste great when combined with your favorite syrup!

Homemade Strawberry Banana Waffles

Your family is sure to enjoy these homemade strawberry banana waffles and I bet they’ll quickly become a breakfast favorite! Using the fresh berries that are currently in-season is a great way to save some money, since typically you can find them at a lesser price than when they’re not in-season. (Tip: If you find yourself with too many strawberries on-hand and don’t want them to spoil, try freezing them and using them for milkshakes or smoothies, like my Strawberry, Banana, Mango Smoothie recipe, which my daughter loves!) Another tip for fresh strawberries and blueberries is to keep them stored in the refrigerator until you’re ready to eat and wash them right before eating.
