I finally had some bananas that needed to be used. Usually the kids eat the bananas so fast I hardly have time to bake with them.
I'm going to warn you, these are NOT the lowest calorie waffles in the world. Not by a long shot. We have a big belgian waffle maker so these made only 7 waffles, very big waffles.
The recipe I followed required 2 sticks of butter. Yup, you heard correctly, 2 sticks people. These did not need butter or syrup on them. The picture above is my sons, he of course, wanted syrup.
I do think that this is too much butter though, I would cut 1/2 a stick off the recipe next time I make them. When we made them, they leaked butter all over the place. They were delicious and the kids totally want me to make them again!
