August 24th is National Waffle Day and National Banana Split Day is August 25th.
This year, we’ve combined the two into one fun recipe: Banana Split Waffles. The waffle becomes the split banana.
Prep time is 10 minutes, total time 25 minutes. A round waffle maker is required. Thanks to Krusteaz for the recipe.
Ingredients For 4 Servings
For The Waffles
1. PREHEAT the waffle iron. To toast the nuts, preheat a dry, heavy skillet over medium heat, add the nuts and toast for 1 to 2 minutes, or until they’re golden brown and give off a rich, toasty fragrance. Stir constantly for even toasting. Remove from the pan to cool.
2. WHISK all the waffle ingredients together in a medium bowl. The batter will be slightly lumpy.
3. POUR the batter onto the prepared waffle iron. Cook for 3-4 minutes until the waffles are golden brown, or according to the waffle iron directions.
4. FOLD the waffle into a small bowl and add the fillings.
