Hi friends!

Sorry for the two week hiatus – I’ve been buried in summer school work and just haven’t had the time to get together a good blog post.  But I’m hoping these suckers make up for it!

I’m taking a biology course right now and one of my labs required EIGHT ripe bananas.  Truthfully, I could have cared less about the lab – I was just excited for it to be over so that I could bake with them (they were only used for ripening, don’t worry, I’m not using experimented-upon bananas in the recipes I share with you guys).

This recipe knocked out 3 of ‘em – 5 more to go!

These waffles were pretty darn good on their own, but as I was processing the bananas with the peanut butter soymilk and maple syrup, it struck me that making a peanut butter banana sauce to go on top of them would make them even better.

All I can tell you, is that I don’t like bananas and I ate this entire stack, sauce and all.

Whatever way you choose to serve them, sauce or no sauce, these are an awesome weekend brunch recipe that everyone will enjoy.
