One of my favorite treats to make for my kids are waffles, and I don't only make them for breakfast, sometimes it's an after dinner treat. I decided to kick these up a few notches and make them special. I added some really good quality cocoa powder and my favorite spice, cardamom.

  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup cooking oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 roughly smashed ripe bananas
  • 1/2 tsp crushed green cardamom (my favorite is from Reluctant Trading)
  • Greek yogurt for topping (optional)
  • Berries for topping (optional)
  • Maple syrup or honey for topping (optional)
  • Powdered sugar for dusting at the end
  1. Whisk all of the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.

  2. In a separate bowl add the eggs, milk, vanilla and whisk together. Mash in the two bananas, keep them chunky and mix well.

  3. Add wet ingredients into the dry and mix with a wooden spoon until combined.

  4. Preheat your waffle iron. (Grease waffle iron before each use)

  5. Pour approximately 1/2 cup batter onto the hot waffle iron, and cook for 3-3:30 minutes, or to your liking.

  6. Serve hot and fresh with berries, honey, maple syrup or greek yogurt. Sprinkle with a dusting of powdered sugar and enjoy!
