This recipe was inspired by a banana flax pancake recipe I found on Spark Recipes years ago. I always found that the pancakes were a bit too dense, but since my partner likes the flavour so much I continued to make them for him anyway. This past weekend I decided to overhaul the recipe to see if they would make a better waffle than a pancake and they came out great! I have made the pancakes with vegetable oil and with butter in the past, so if you don't like coconut oil I would imagine the waffles would work out fine with either of those as well. These will also work with just white flour if that is all you have.
We had ours with whipped cream, blueberries, and maple syrup as our garnish, but I think they would work with a hazelnut spread or peanut butter and maple syrup as well. —Catherine
