Got extra ripe bananas? Make more waffles and freeze the leftovers for a quick and easy future morning. Wrap each pancake individually in plastic wrap for easy defrosting.

Here's how to whip coconut cream. Let a can of coconut milk sit in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours to separate the cream from the water. Open the can carefully and remove the cream part with a spoon. Place in a bowl and whisk with a hand blender for a few minutes. Save the coconut water for use in smoothies—like these!

    Can you replace psyllium with ground flax?

    Hi Stacey!

    In some recipes you can. We haven't tried it in this one and unfortunately I don't believe you'll get the same results. Please let us know if you try it and how it works for you. Good luck!

    Really enjoyed this recipe. I topped it with cream and berries. Very filling.

    Can these be made into pancakes instead of waffles? I'm assuming "yes" and will try it, but am wondering if there are any modifications to the recipe that would make them better. I've made a pumpkin pancake with some banana, before, that is outstanding. I'm excited to try these and bought some psyllium husk powder from Thrive.com.

    Hi Sam!

    You would like to do the banana waffles without bananas?! ;-)

    I haven't done the recipe but I guess except for taste bananas add some sweetness...but my guess is that you can do them without bananas and that will actually mean that you skip a lot of carbs. :)

    Would I be able to make this without the banana?

    Just made these and they are surprisingly tasty. The banana is what brings out the sweetness and because of that I dont think you need any sweetener. I love pancakes and now with this recipe I can have them!
  18. Lisa
    These are fantastic! I love love love them. I make them as pancakes instead of waffles. I make the batter ahead of time and keep it in the fridge and make them each day.
  19. Heather
    how much batter is one serving? Thanks

    My waffles stuck to the non-stick waffle iron. I followed directions and even greased my iron well before use. How long is a while for letting the batter sit? I let it sit for about 15 minutes. Maybe that was my problem? They taste good but just not a good consistency for my waffle iron.

    This recipe was too dry. The batter looked like cement. I added almond milk to lighten it up and made muffins instead. Will not try this again. Syd was not happy with this.
  24. Lisa Harris
    After generously greasing my waffle iron with coconut oil, they still stuck making a mess of my waffle iron and a wasting recipe.
  25. susan hicks
    Made it EXACTLY as recipe calls for . DOESN'T WORK in waffle iron , it is like soft rubber when you try to get it out . Doesn't keep it's shape . So I will cook it in a frying pan . Batter is very THIN , NOT
    like a pancake mixture .
  26. Sarah
    How many carbs are in the whipped coconut cream? And how much is one serving?
  27. natalie
    These are DELICIOUS! I made a few small changes. I made the recipe for one pancake in a non - stick pan with a tbsp of butter. For the batter, I used a whole egg instead of a 1/2 and omitted the banana. Also, I took a square of 80% chocolate (< 1 carb), broke it into small pieces and added it to the batter. The batter was the right consistency within a minute. Fried it up and served with a tbsp of peanut butter. I could 100 more of these! Incredibly tasty.

    Macros at bottom of recipe - hover on NUTRITION. This site doesn't give calories, as counting calories is not required in LCHF and Keto.

    Cream is better than milk !! 18 % or even 35% :)

    I guess Banana extract might work, for the flavour ? I'm going to try it, cause the recipe sounds so good !!!

    Can you replace psyllium with ground flax?

    Hi Stacey , You can find psyllium husk in health food stores.
    Some people have used chai seeds in stead.

  32. Louise
    I found that getting the skillet hot with butter before pouring the batter in helps. Use lots of butter!

    I love these and have made them a lot. But I've learned by making a few flops. My waffle iron needs to be at its highest setting and they need to cook heaps longer than just when the ' ready' light goes on. Maybe 2 or 3 x longer?
    I carefully run a knife around the edge to loosen, then with the knife tip,I ease some of it away from the iron, then gently, bit by bit ,ease a large spatula under it till it is as close as possible, supporting half of the waffle. Then I flip it over in half. Now it seems to be stable enough to remove from the iron, while it is folded in half. When plated, you can flip it into a circle again. And yes. Oil the Iron well. Hope this helps.
  34. Genny Louise
    Actually. I just left one in far too long.....10 or 15 minutes, while I was doing the previous post, and it's great!!! Lifts out of the iron like a doddle ( just took it out with my fingers ) and is crispy in parts and really brown( read.... Not Burnt) and yummy. And looks good too. Go figure ;)

    Someone please delete this recipe or come and help take these pancakes out of my house. I didn't use a waffle maker, I fried them in some butter and I'm in so much trouble. No one told me that recipe was supposed to serve 8!
  36. Bobby
    Dude what kind of waffle iron is that? The kids would love the shape!
  37. Susanne
    Love those waffels I also use as pancakes as well. I use loads of coconut oil on the Waffel Iron that is very hot. The waffwels come out perfect yum
  38. Frederique
    On my waffle iron, it really has been a mess. I have not tried to leave them for 15 mins to see if it's better , but since I doubled the recipe to freeze one made, it would have taken too long... So I chose to make pancakes... There are absolutely delicious ! I'll freeze them on a rack, then pack them according to what is allowed for one person so I won't be tempted to eat more :) !

    It seems strange that questions about psilium have been answered but questions about bananas not being keto have not. How on earth is a banana used in a keto recipe?
  40. Mary
    Love this recipe but I can’t get the number of servings out of it. I froze the bananas and thawed them so they were mush. I put 1/2 cup in waffle maker and it almost makes a complete waffle. A double batch only made 10 instead of 16. I let the batter sit for 15 minutes hoping it would “grow”. :). Any thoughts?

    A whole banana is in a recipe for 8 servings. If you only have 1 serving, it's an eighth of a banana, about 3.5 carbs, if a whole banana is 27.

    You could possibly try adding banana extract for the flavor without the carbs, maybe cut back on the liquid used enough to compensate for the few drops of extract used

    They really aren't. A small banana that weighs 118 grams has 105 calories and 91% of those calories are sugar and starch. The starch content is specifically 35% of the calories. But when you divide it into 8 servings, the calories come down to 13 calories and 91% of that is still 11.83 calories of sugar and starch for each pancake so it means the sugars are 11.83 calories of sugar/starch in each pancake. But the suggestion to add banana extract if you're really hooked on banana flavor makes more sense than adding high sugar and starchy foods like a small banana. The starch always immediately turns to blood sugar as soon as it hits the amylase enzyme in our saliva. Research shows it takes a 50 mg/dL of fasting blood sugar to 100 mg/dL or doubled in 15 minutes and takes it to 250 mg/dl in 30 minutes. STARCH is the enemy of weight loss and general health because high blood sugars damage every single cell in the body and has been identified as the cause of Alzheimer's Disease. This info was reported 2-23-2017 out of Bath UK.

    I don't like coconut, does it taste like coconut because of the ingredients? If so, can these be replaced with supplements?

    Can't wait to try them......do you think you could add little stevia......make little sweet since no syrup
  51. Kristina
    Ok, I was with you up to now as these recipes look incredible, but bananas are in no way Keto friendly.
  52. Michelle
    I made these waffles for breakfast this morning and they turned out great. I used coconut cream instead of coconut milk since I already had a can of the coconut cream open. In addition to the banana, I added a few drops of banana extract to give it a bit more banana flavor. The waffles did not stick to the waffle iron, but I'm using a ceramic Belgian waffle maker and have had good experiences with waffles not sticking.

    Topped it with butter, homemade whipped cream, pecans, and ChocZero coconut syrup. I'll definitely make these again.

    I add some chopped up 85% chocolate pieces once in awhile as a treat. So yummy!

    It will be a much different texture and consistency if you leave it out.

    Are there any replacements for flour for people who are allergic to nuts and coconut?

    Hazelnut flour can replace almond flour in a 1:1 ratio. Coconut flour is harder to substitute as it is much thirstier.
