  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 can pumpkin purée
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1¼ cups milk (dairy or nut milk will work)
  • ⅓ cup Colavita Olive Oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoonsalt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon allspice
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg (ideally freshly)
  • Garnish: banana slices, butter, chocolate chips, crème fraîche, dried cranberries, maple syrup, pumpkin seeds

    1. COMBINE all the dry ingredients in a large bowl (the flours, oats, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg). Mix to combine all the ingredients.

    2. COMBINE all the wet ingredients in a separate large bowl, and mix well.

    3. POUR the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.

    4. PREHEAT the waffle iron. When it’s ready, grease it lightly with a little olive oil (pour about a tablespoon of oil into a paper towel and rub it onto the waffle iron).

    5. POUR ½ cup of the batter into the waffle iron and close the lid. Cook until the light on the waffle maker turns green (or indicates that it’s ready).
    6. REMOVE the waffle from the iron and repeat with the remaining batter. Garnish as desired and serve.

    *The bright orange color of pumpkins and other squash is a dead giveaway that pumpkin is loaded with beta-carotene, an important antioxidant. Beta-carotene is one of the plant carotenoids that is converted to vitamin A in the body.

    During the conversion to vitamin A, beta-carotene performs many important functions in overall health. Current research indicates that a diet rich in foods containing beta-carotene may reduce the risk of developing certain types of cancer, and offers protection against heart disease and other diseases, including some degenerative aspects of aging [source].
