These truly beautiful Banana Chocolate Chip and Blueberry Waffles are fruity, decadent, and unforgettably delicious. Whether you’re serving these homemade waffles for a Saturday morning with the family or a Sunday ladies brunch, be prepared to receive LOTS of love for these waffles!
I’m one of those people that could eat breakfast all day. I mean, what’s better than a waffle… at 5pm? With these sweet, rich waffles, I could honestly eat them as a breakfast or dessert!
I hate going to breakfast restaurants and having to choose between the chocolate chip waffles, the blueberry waffles, and the banana pancakes. As I was facing this truly existential crisis, I realized, why not just combine them all? I mean, the blueberries and bananas compliment each other perfectly, and chocolate chips are delicious in just about everything.
Now that I’ve made these waffles a few times, I don’t know if I could ever go back to just having a banana pancake or a blueberry waffle again. No, now that I’ve gone and spoiled myself, these are the only waffles that are truly satisfying!
Ingredients for banana chocolate chip and blueberry waffles
- Bananas – Make sure they’re ripe enough to easily mash.
- Vegetable oil – Can be substituted with canola oil.
- Milk – You can use whole milk, or almond milk to keep them dairy free!
- Apple cider vinegar – Do NOT use more than a teaspoon of this tangy, powerful ingredient.
- Rolled oats – These give the waffles a soft added texture that’s so satisfying.
- All purpose flour – Plain white all purpose flour works best for this easy recipe.
- Sugar – The batter is already naturally sweetened with the banana. Granulated sugar, brown sugar or coconut sugar can be added if you desire something sweeter but between the naturally sweet bananas and chocolate chips, you likely do not need to add more sugar.
- Baking powder – This gives the waffles their lovely fluffy texture.
- Chocolate chips – Milk or dark chocolate chips are the best! If you’re trying to keep this recipe fully dairy free, opt for a vegan-friendly chocolate chip option.
Can the batter be made the night before?
Yes! The batter can totally be made overnight and stored in the refrigerator. If the batter is a bit dry when you use it in the morning, add a splash of milk to get the texture just right.
How do I store my leftovers?
Once the waffles have fully cooled down, store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Do banana chocolate chip and blueberry waffles freeze well?
Yes! Just store them in a single layer in an airtight container (to avoid drying out/freezer burn) for up to 1 month in the freezer.
When reheating the waffles from cold or even frozen, just pop them into the oven or toaster oven at 350°F / 176°C until they’re warmed through.
Impress everyone at the breakfast table with these sweet recipes!
Banana Chocolate Chip and Blueberry Waffles
- 5 medium size ripe bananas, mashed
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 cups whole milk or almond milk for vegan
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- ½ cup rolled oats
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 4 tablespoons granulated sugar, (optional, see blog post or notes for more details)
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ cup chocolate chips
- Oil, to grease waffle iron
- Maple syrup or honey
- In a large bowl, mashed bananas with a fork. Pour in oil, milk and apple cider vinegar. Stir.
- In another bowl, add in oats, flour, sugar (if using), baking powder and chocolate chips. Combine until a batter forms. You can also fold in some blueberries at this point as well.
- Let rest for 5 minutes.
- In the meantime, preheat the waffle iron. Once ready, spray with non-stick oil or brush with oil.
- Pour ½ cup batter, more depending on the size of your waffle iron. Just make sure to leave a bit space at the edge so that the batter doesn’t run outside. Follow manufacturer instructions for the cooking time. Mine took 5 minutes to cook. Waffle should be lightly crispy on the outside and soft inside.
- Remove carefully with a fork or tongs and place on a serving plate but don’t stack at this point or it will lose the crispiness. Repeat the same step until no more batter is left.
- Serve with your favorite toppings.
