Delicious banana nut waffles that are crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside! Bananas and pecans are BFFs in this recipe and make this breakfast extra special!

Did I mention how much I love a healthy waffle that I can eat guilt-free? Waffles always feel indulgent to me and are reserved for special breakfasts, but when they are made as healthy as these ones are, we can actually enjoy them all the time!

These waffles are made with whole wheat flour, coconut oil and include a whole banana in the batter (plus more for topping)! They are also incredibly simple to make! Just place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and pulse until combined!
