Banana Cinnamon Waffles
When I was a child and running late for school, my mom often handed me this waffle breakfast sandwich wrapped in a paper towel and gave a simple order: “Go.” Even when I was rushed, my mom instilled in me the importance of eating breakfast every day. A great thing about this recipe is that it is easy, well-balanced, and versatile. You can make the recipe using frozen waffles in whatever variety you like, such as whole wheat, cinnamon, or buttermilk, and whatever fruit you prefer. Try it with peanut butter, or substitute cream cheese or Nutella. This version includes protein from the peanut butter, potassium and other nutrients from the banana, and whole grains from the waffles. It will satisfy- your hunger and keep you energized throughout the morning.
