Between these Caramelized Banana Waffles I’m sharing here today and the Waffle Sandwich recipe I’ve got over on my other blog, Panini Happy (along with a Weelicious cookbook giveaway – head on over to enter!) it was quite the waffle-y weekend at our house.

Every time I make waffles I wonder why I don’t do it more often (same with going to the theater). In the brief amount of time it takes to mix up the batter the waffle iron is already heated and ready to go. These Caramelized Banana Waffles get their tender texture and hint of vanilla flavor from vanilla Greek yogurt. I’ve been on a huge Greek yogurt kick ever since the Yogurt Mixed Berry Pie I made earlier this spring. Chobani seems to switch out its on-the-container recipes often, which has definitely fed my yogurt cooking addiction.

Banana fans delight – spooning caramelized bananas over the top of anything is an incredible treat. They take just a few minutes to get browned and extra-sweet in the skillet, then you pile them on your freshly pressed waffles with more vanilla yogurt and toasted almonds. This definitely qualifies as dessert for breakfast!

Carmelized banana waffles? I’m there! I have a very neglected waffle iron, this makes me want to break it out. Only problem is that I’m allergic to oranges. Not sure what would be a good substitute here– maybe coconut water?
