Double Chocolate Banana Waffles

Ingredients: (yield: 10-12 waffles)

Per my mix’s instructions for making 10-12 waffles: 2 cups pancake mix, 1 and 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup vegetable oil, and 1 egg. Feel free to follow these measurements for your own waffle mix, or use the directions on your box.

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1 banana, mashed

1 pinch of salt

1 Hershey bar, chopped


Step 1. Mix all ingredients together in a mixing bowl until combined. Allow mixture to sit undisturbed for the amount of time it takes for your waffle iron to heat up.

Step 2: Using a 1/3 cup scoop (or whichever size works best for your waffle maker), prepare waffles according to your waffle maker. For best results, I had mine on medium heat and cooked my waffles for 2 minutes and 30 seconds.

Step 3: Enjoy your waffles warm with strawberries like we did, with sliced bananas, or with any other topping. These are excellent with a small spread of nutella on them. These waffles freeze well and reheat well in the oven.
