Browned Butter Banana Waffles

I can't stand the taste of water. I drink at least 8 glasses a day, but it isn't because I love the flavor, I don't. My husband and two boys don't seem to mind it, but I have to drink my water hot and quickly. I also can't stand ice. I always order drinks without ice and I prefer my pop and iced tea at room temperature. I think a large part of it has to do with the fact that I am very small boned and get cold easily. While everyone else is overheated, I am the one with a sweater on in the middle of the summer. My husband teases me that I never wear a tank top without a cardigan, my shoulders freeze. Whatever the reason, I have strange water habits that everyone in my family always comments upon. I always argue that by not getting ice I receive more drink for my money.

Today my youngest was tired and grumpy. He decided that he would only eat bananas for breakfast. Don't ask me why, he was in a mood. So for breakfast this morning I tried a new recipe for Brown Butter Banana Waffles.
My boys all dressed up! 

This recip has 13 ingredients. It takes 30 minutes of total time, 20 minutes of which is active and makes 6 servings. I did make a few changes to the original recipe. I'm not sure if I had very large bananas, or if the type of waffle maker that I have needed thicker batter, but the batter as stated in the recipe was too thin. So after the first waffle was done, I added an additional cup of all-purpose flour. My bananas were on the large side so that have been why my batter was a little thin without the additional flour added. I also added a small amount of almond butter to the batter (about 2 tablespoons) and more on top of the the finished waffles along with sliced bananas.

My youngest son really liked the banana flavor on these waffles. If you have never browned butter, it needs to be fully brown throughout the pan. The recipe makes it seem that just the edges should be browned, but true browned butter is brown throughout with little bits of brown on the bottom of the skillet. You really want the butter to be fully browned for the flavor to come through in the waffles and have a nice nutty taste. Topped with bananas and almond butter these waffles turned out beautifully and were a great breakfast for a growing 4 year old.

For the recipe go to Brown Butter Banana Waffles.

  1. Wow! I had to read that water part twice. I've actually never heard of anyone else having such a strange relationship with water. I don't like it much either but I can't drink it room temperature. I have to have ice. Those waffles looks great and I'm loving your boys costume. :)

    1. I hate ice :) I have never liked it, my mom tried to get me to like cold drinks and they just aren't my thing.

  2. I like most drinks at room temp too, but I like milk and water cold. Have you tried filtering your water (assuming you don't already do this, or use bottled water)? Our water has a terrible taste right out the tap because they put a lot of chlorine in it and getting a filtration pitcher has made a huge difference.

    1. I do filter my water, but I still don't like it. I just force myself to drink it warm and 2 glasses at a time so I get my water in for the day. I get headaches if I don't drink enough water, so I make myself even though I don't enjoy it :)

  3. I'm not a fan of water, either & I usually add Crystal Lite to make it go down better.

    1. I used to drink a lot of crystal light too :) My doctor wants me to drink it plain though since I had problems with my kidneys growing up. Crystal light does make water taste a lot better though!

  4. Waffles look yummy! You have similar water habits as my mom. At least you have the recommended 8 glasses a day, I have to be on top of her to just have one!
