Banana Bread Waffles with Blueberry and Quinoa

Weekend mornings are about some hot breakfast served and all of us sitting down together to have some talk over breakfast. When compared to the weekdays, where there is no sitting down for breakfast, I overlook for weekends to come to have some family breakfast and also gives me an opportunity to try new things for breakfast :). This waffle comes together in just minutes and its another recipe to use up those overripe bananas yet not let the consumer know about the presence of overripe bananas in it :).

The little crunch of quinoa and a bite into some juicy blueberries is an additional bonus of these waffles which makes it a joy to have it for breakfast. We love the waffles that we get in Costco and so I got inspired to try this recipe and I must say that this recipe is just the alternative to those waffles. Try it and let me know if you like it. 


  1. 2/3 cups of whole wheat flour
  2. 2 spoons of corn flour
  3. 1/2 tsp of baking powder
  4. 1/4 tsp of cinnamon powder
  5. 1/4 tsp of salt
  6. 2 ripe bananas
  7. 2 tbsps of brown sugar 
  8. 1 tbsp of oil
  9. 1/2 tsp of vanilla essence
  10. 1/4 cup of quinoa
  11. 3/4 cup of blueberries 
  12. Melted butter to grease the waffle trays
  • Mix all the ingredients 1-5.
  • Mash the bananas. Add the brown sugar, oil and vanilla essence. Mix it together.
  • Add the dry ingredients and quinoa to the wet mixture and mix it well. Finally add in the blueberries and stir it in.
  • Preheat your waffle maker as per the instructions. Once preheated, grease the waffle trays with melted butter. Pour a ladle of batter(eyeball the amount as per the size of your waffle trays) on to the waffle tray, spreading or covering the cubes of waffle tray with batter. If you are not particular about the shape of the waffle then you could avoid covering all the cubes. 
  • Smooth out the batter with the back of the ladle. Cover the waffle maker and cook it untill crisp and brown. 
  • Remove it onto a plate and serve it with some maple syrup. This waffle is a little sweet and flavorful because of the bananas and Blueberries. So you could choose to have it as is. It tastes yum!

  1. Do not open your waffle maker for the initial 2-3 minutes of the cooking, else it would go shapeless and ruin the waffles.
  2. Waffles are best served warm. However, you could freeze it too and just reheat it in the oven.
