This recipe for Fruity Pebbles waffles with bananas is surprisingly delicious and a hit with the whole family!
We are a total breakfast family. Breakfast all the time. I’ve been known to have scrambled eggs for lunch. My son will have a bowl of cereal for a snack. My daughter eats oatmeal like there’s going to be a national shortage any day now. Breakfast for dinner is a fairly common occurrence around here. And, yes, Saturday morning family breakfasts are a pretty big deal.
So take my word for it, we are well-versed on breakfast foods. We try new recipes, we mix recipes together. We all get involved.
But these pretty little waffles actually surprised all of us!
I thought they would be a fun treat for my daughter. Something to make her ooh and ahh and exclaim that this is what she wanted every year for her birthday breakfast!
And she totally didn’t disappoint. I think she groaned every single time she took a bite. I heard her hours later telling the neighbor girl all about her “fantastic waffles” and saying she’d try to get the recipe for her mom!
But here’s what surprised me… all 4 of us loved them! There is mashed banana in the batter and they were SO light and fluffy! We ate them with a little bit of fresh whipped cream and extra banana slices, but you could easily serve them with Greek yogurt, butter and syrup or just eat plain!
And they smelled delicious while they were cooking! It was almost sinful and all 4 of us exclaimed over the smell to the point that it was getting annoying!
Fruity Pebbles Banana Waffles Recipe
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 cups Fruity Pebbles Cereal
- 1-1/2 Tablespoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3 ripe bananas
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup reduced fat buttermilk
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- whipped topping
- additional bananas for garnish
For the waffles:
Preheat waffle iron. In a food processor, grind cereal into a fine powder. In a large bowl combine flour, ground cereal, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. In a blender or food processor combine bananas, eggs, vanilla, buttermilk and oil. Process until smooth. Gradually stir banana mixture into flour mixture. Beat until smooth.
Lightly brush waffle iron grids with oil or spray with non-stick spray. Pour enough batter to fill two-thirds of the waffle iron. Cook until crisp and golden-brown, about 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter to make a total of four waffles.
Serve with a dollop of whipped cream, sliced bananas and a sprinkle of Fruity Pebbles
