On most weekends, our breakfast is luxurious. I either make crepes, pancakes or waffles. But I have to ensure that however indulgent the breakfast is, it’s still healthy. It’s difficult but I am managing well so far :). These Healthy Chocolate Banana Waffles are loved by everyone in my family. Chocolate for breakfast is the most wonderful way to start a day!

The recipe uses mashed bananas and date syrup for sweetening. The flavors go really well with chocolate. I love to throw in some walnuts for crunch. Oatmeal really fills you up and these Healthy Chocolate Banana Waffles satiate you and keep you happily full until lunch time.

I love to top mine with some fresh fruit and caramelized bananas. Earlier I caramelized them with sugar, but these days I use jaggery or palm sugar. The process is simple. Peel and slit bananas in half and then top with some palm sugar or ground jaggery. Let them bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until nicely browned.

My sister loves to wake up to these Healthy Chocolate Banana Waffles. Everyone in my family is trying to eat healthy these days. So you will see more of these healthy recipes from now on. But don’t worry, I will bring indulgent desserts here as well.

Recipe Notes

If you are making these for a large group,  preheat a sheet pan in your oven at  200 F or 95 C.  As waffles get ready, place them on the sheet pan and return the pan to the oven.  When you are ready to serve your family , just remove the waffles from the sheet pan and place them on a platter for serving.

I hope you try these Healthy Chocolate Banana Waffles for breakfast soon. If you do, I would love to hear how they turned out for you. You could also try the Banana Chocolate Chip Waffles for a less indulgent brekkie. Although, I don’t see why :D. Chocolate is therapy, Chocolate is Love!!
