You may recall that last month I joined the Secret Recipe Club and I’m back at it again! This month I was assigned Christie from A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures. Christie has a million recipes on her site but the second I saw her Banana Waffles with Peanut Butter Syrup I knew that was the one.
So these are waffles that taste like banana bread. YUM. I may or may not mentioned that one of my kids does not like peanut butter. Not even in Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. Its a little distressing to me, but in general he is the best eater of the bunch, always open to trying new foods, so I’ll let him have this.
What do you do when you don’t like peanut butter? Replace it with Nutella of course, because we all love Nutella! (Side note, I recall a time when no one knew what Nutella was – how did we survive?)
Christie’s blog focusing on eating light, and while that is probably something I should also focus on, I rarely do. I just really love butter. So I made a few minor adjustments, not to be fattening for the heck of it, but to use some of the ingredients that I already had on hand, like low fat greek yogurt in place of fat free, you get the idea.
These were a big hit with the kids of course. I was also thinking of adding a scoop of ice cream and some strawberries on top and calling them banana split waffle sundaes. I may do that next time!
