I starts today’s post with a weather forecast:  Snow and tons of it.

The school called a snow day even though it hasn’t even started snowing.  Yet, a quick check of the radar and the direction in which the snow is moving paints a different picture.  So, I did what any other normal person- I made sugar loaded waffles.

Now, at heart, these waffles are actually not bad for you.  I use some whole wheat flour, bananas, egg whites, and a little oil.

But I couldn’t, in my right mind, leave these waffles healthy.  It is a snow day after all.  So I threw dark chocolate chunks into the batter then loaded the top with butter, whipping cream, and a little more chocolate.

A breakfast fit for a snow day queen.

Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • ¾ cup unbleached all purpose flour
  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoon natural sugar
  • 1½ cup buttermilk
  • 2 none egg whites
  • 2 tablespoon sunflower oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 none ripe banana
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chunks
Instructions
  1. In a food processor combine bananas and buttermilk. Pour into a bowl and whisk in egg whites, vanilla, and sunflower oil. In a separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients and whisk into banana mixture. Mixture should still be slightly lumpy.
  2. Heat waffle iron and spoon about ½ of a cup of mixture onto hot griddle (I have a Belgium Waffle maker so this may be different for you.) Cook according to waffle makers instructions. (if you don't own a waffle maker you can also use this batter for pancakes- you may have to think the batter out slightly.)
  3. Top with your favorite waffle toppings- I chose butter, whipping cream, and a little extra chocolate.
