Brown Butter Banana Waffles

Looking back on my recipe posts, I just realized it’s few and far between. The funny thing is that I keep trying new recipes and photograph them but for some reason they just haven’t made it to the blog yet.

So here’s some Brown Butter Banana Waffles that I made last year!

These waffles are so good and definitely something that I will make many more times.

I love just about anything banana so when I saw these on Two Peas & Their Pod, I knew I just had to make them!

You can even make a double batch and then freeze the leftovers. Then when you’re ready to eat a waffle, just pop it into the toaster!

Brown Butter Banana Waffles

Have some old bananas lying around? Make these whole wheat banana waffles with browned butter.

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes
Total: 30 minutes
Yield: 12 waffles


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 medium bananas very ripe, mashed


  1. Preheat your waffle iron, according to manufacturer's instructions, to medium-high and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. In a small skillet, heat butter over medium heat whisking constantly. Cook until butter is melted and begins to brown. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together both flours, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. 

  4. Whisk in cooled butter, eggs, milk, and vanilla until just combined. Gently fold in mashed bananas. 

  5. Scoop waffle batter by about 1/2 cupfuls onto preheated waffle iron. Cook, according to manufacturers instructions, until waffle is golden brown on both sides; about 5-6 minutes. Repeat with all remaining batter spraying with cooking spray in between batches so waffles do not stick.

  6. Serve immediately, topped with extra bananas and fresh maple syrup.
