Tip!

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!

    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.

    how are bananas low carb?

    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.

    Most health food shops sell Psyllium husk and other ingredients needed for most of the recipes.

    So I do not need to add oil at all? They will not stick in a waffle maker??

    Would I be able to make this without the banana?

    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!

    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.

    After generously greasing my waffle iron with coconut oil, they still stuck making a mess of my waffle iron and a wasting recipe.

    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 .

    How many carbs are in the whipped coconut cream? And how much is one serving?

    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.

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