Banana Waffles with Sesame Honey Walnuts

The little luxuries in life. More recently, we added bananas to the list. With bananas dropping in price to around $6/kg, it is slightly more affordable.

I mashed one banana into the waffle batter. To be honest, I wished I could have mashed two! But alas, we are still rationing the use of bananas (does that sound ridiculous?!?!). Maybe when the weather gets warmer and supply is more plentiful, I can be more generous.

What I love, however, was roasting some walnuts with a drizzle of honey and sesame seeds. Crisp walnuts with a light sweetness and fragrance from the sesame. We shared 4 waffles between us and skipped lunch that day. Totally worth it.

Banana Waffles with Sesame Honey Walnuts (4 Waffles)
1 cups of soy milk
1/2 cup plain flour
1/4 cup of instant oats
2 tsp of baking powder
1/2 cup of cranberries
1 tablespoon of honey
1/4 tsp salt
1 tablespoon of brown sugar
3 tablespoon of oil
1 mashed banana

1 cup of walnuts
2 tablespoon of honey
1 tsp sesame

Whisk eggs,banana, oil, honey and milk together. In a dry bowl, combine flour, oats, baking powder, cranberries, chocolate and sugar. Fold wet into dry. Preheat waffle iron. Spoon and cook! Meanwhile, hit pan and toast walnuts. Drizzle honey and sesame. Once it becomes slight brown. remove pan from heat. EAT waffles with walnuts!

we love our banana bread why not banana waffles? Genius- I like how you combined the sweetness of the bananas and the slightly savory flavor of the sauce! Awesome

I like that you mash the banana into the waffle!

Wow, the bananas are expensive there! :O ...for us here, the papayas are expensive, and even so, can't get those papayas as good as those sold in SG (grown in Malaysia).

Hey Daphne,

just wanted to let you know that I've received your package! I love all the items you included - especially the cooler bag and chopsticks, which is perfect for packing my lunch to work!

On a side note, I'm dreadfully sorry I didn't realize you were sending the items from Perth! I was in Sydney the past few weeks and could have saved you a few bucks sending to Sydney instead of Singapore >.<

not just bananas, i'm seeing some cranberries and oats too, these are really good! Great idea to start off a day! bananas are so expensive over in aust! we got quite some varieties of bananas here, normally they only cost around USD1 per bunch, some even less than that.

I giggle (never fail) each time you I see your "rationing bananas". :)
Happy belated birthday, blog anniversary, etc etc. Sorry I missed all of them. I just got back online today, after about 2 months. Mommy duties took over.:( Anyway I am so happy to be back. You will be hearing from me.
