Healthy chocolate chip banana oatmeal waffles

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Whether or not that's true, this Examiner at least can't even begin to start her day without a little something delicious to eat. Start your day off right with these banana oatmeal waffles, the perfect combination of healthy and delicious to leave you full and happy all the way through to lunch time.

This recipe was floating around Pinterest, but it's hard to tell any clear source. However, this is the slightly tweaked, modified, and improved version straight from this kitchen to yours.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup vanilla almond milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon-1 tablespoon Stevia extract, to taste (modify based on ripeness of banana)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons dark chocolate chips

Method:

Blend together the oats, banana, almond milk, and water in a blender or food processor until smooth. Slowly add in the baking powder, vanilla extract, and cinnamon, processing until well combined.

Allow to sit for five minutes. This is one of those times where, even though you're tempted to ignore this step in order to get to your breakfast sooner, you really do need to wait--the oats soak up the milk and water and this makes your batter a bit thicker and your waffles a bit fluffier. Take the time to preheat your waffle iron.

Once waffle iron is heated (and, of course, coated in nonstick spray), carefully spoon in your waffle batter. In a standard Belgian waffle maker, you need about 1/3 cup batter.

This mix makes about 3 large, Belgian style waffles in all.

Let your waffle iron do its thing. For this recipe, it's recommended to set it to one of the darker settings, unless you really like squishy waffles. When the light comes on (or however your iron tells you its ready) scoop it onto a plate and enjoy with syrup, jam, or just plain!
