These Banana Split Waffles are Belgian waffles made with bananas, then topped with sliced bananas, whipped cream, cherries, sprinkles and chocolate sauce!
I'm telling you right now, these Banana Split Waffles will change your life!
No joke. You will never want regular waffles again. You will crave these over the top waffles morning, noon, and night. Probably in the middle of the night too. No lie. You will wake up in the middle of the night jonesing for these Banana Split Waffles!
Not that anyone here did that or anything! I would never get up in the middle of the night to chow down on waffles. Never!
Okay, I totally would! Not even kidding. These waffles are completely worth a middle of the night kitchen raid. You won't regret it. I promise!
I made a big batch of these yesterday. Then I cried a little bit because I was too sick it eat more than two bites. Best two bites of my life.
My only regret.....my photos are not as bright and pretty as I'd like. In my defence it's amazing I could even whip up waffles considering how sick I am.
However it's still going to bug me that they are not as pretty as I'd like. I can't help myself, I'm a bit of a perfectionist. Even with a fever of 104.
I'm hoping to bounce back quickly. I hate being sick, it makes being a food blogger a bit complicated. You have to make food no matter how you're feeling.
Luckily I have a very honest family with huge appetites. So any time I make huge batches of waffles, or anything else for that matter, they are very happy to plow through the food and give wicked honest feedback.
Very honest feedback. Like brutally honest feedback! They don't hold back when it comes to letting me know what tastes good and what stinks. And they are happy to tell me!
Which I like. I tend to be brutally honest too. So I've raised my kids to be the same way. All I ask is that they be kind. They usually find a way to balance honesty with kindness, and humour.
One thing I'm always honest about is waffles. I love my waffles. We bought a fancy shmancy new waffle maker last year. I freaking love that thing. It's my favourite small appliance these days. I cannot use it enough.
So it seems fitting that I would join Waffle Week 2015! Of course I would! Tons of food bloggers whipping up waffles for the world! That's my utopia.

Banana Split Waffles
- 2 cups all- purpose flour
- ¾ cup sugar
- 3 ½ tsp baking powder
- 2 large eggs separated
- 1 ½ cups milk
- 1 cup butter melted
- 1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 2 bananas mashed
- 2 bananas
- 1 cup whipped cream
- 10 maraschino cherries
- sprinkles to taste
- Combine flour, sugar, and baking powder in a large sized bowl.
- Lightly beat egg yolks in another large sized bowl. Then add milk, butter, vanilla and mashed bananas. Mix well.
- Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined.
- In a medium sized bowl beat egg whites until stiff peaks form, I used my stand mixer but you can do it by hand, it just takes a bit longer. Fold the egg whites into the waffle batter.
- Preheat your waffle iron. I spray mine with non-stick spray, lightly.
- Pour batter into your waffle maker and cook until light brown.
- Stack waffles and add toppings any way you like. The more the better if you ask me!
- Serve with a big old banana split waffle loving smile!

Thanks Renee. I loved my whole two bites and can't wait to whip up more this weekend when I can eat a pile of them.
Thanks for your help today too. I'm determined to tackle technology if it kills me.

My mom always used to talk about dessert waffles with ice cream and such and I always thought she was crazy. But these banana split waffles. OMG. I need them in my life!
If I was feeling better they would have had three kinds of ice cream, homemade hot fudge sauce, homemade caramel and fresh berries soaked in booze. But I slacked off. Ha. I am so thrilled you did this. Thank YOU for this Uber-Cool event. I am so happy I joined. It was so much fun and I can't wait to plough through everyone's waffles this weekend. You are a waffle goddess. And omg your event photo was so beautiful it put my waffles to shame. Have you ever considered teaching photography classes? Because I'd totally sign up for that. xx
Wendy, A Day in the Life on the Farm
Hope you are feeling better soon and kudos to you for working through your illness to share this wonderful recipe.
Thanks so much Wendy. It was such a great event there was no way I was pulling out last minute. I've run events where people have had things come up and it's so much work to regroup and fix links. So there was no way I was going to do that. Totally worth it for the two bites. Such a cool event.
Believe me, your pictures are perfect. They certainly have my mouth watering.
I’m so happy to be involved in this project with so many talented bloggers.
Thanks so much Karen. I'm having a bad week here. Between being sick and looking at my photos on my new Mac I just started questioning my photo skills. Freaked me out big time. But glad they look okay to others. I swear the screen on the Mac just skews my photos. It says it's calibrated correctly but everything looks weird. So discouraging. Okay, now I'm ranting. Sorry. Ha.
I'm so thrilled we did this. I can't wait to visit everyone and flood pinterest with waffles. ha.
Umm, these banana split waffles have changed my life and I haven't even eaten on yet.
Can you believe what will happen when I make these?!?!?
Seriously, these look amazing and are going on my to make list ASAP!
You must try them Kimberly. I am setting aside time on the weekend to visit, pin and likely eat all the waffles on our list. How fun is waffle week right. I can't wait to see what everyone made. And thank you. They were so good. I'm so bummed I was sick this week though. Two bites was not enough. Not even close. Luckily I froze some batter. I'm smart like that. Ha.
I NEEEEEEEEEEED a waffle maker.
You do indeed! Rumour has it someone might be giving one away sometime soon.
Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie
Well those look simply decadent. I'll have 2 orders please.
Ha, thanks Erin. I'll slide you 3 just in case.
Kayle (The Cooking Actress)
these waffles def look life changing...omg the decadence levels!
Thanks Kayle. I'm finally on the mend.
You must try these asap. How goes life girl? We haven't chatted in eons.
Kayle (The Cooking Actress)
omigosh I knooow! Life is good-crazy but starting to feel more normal. I can't wait until Michael is done with school--I'd say things will get less crazy but when he's done then we'll prob be pregnant/trying to get pregnant and house hunting lol. But considering right now Michael's all whiney about wanting a baby at least that'll be better 😛
How are you doin?!
I am so happy you guys are doing so well. I look forward to the day your two are ready for kids, you will make the most amazing, fun Mom Kayle. I miss mine being little. So, so much.
I'm good. It's crazy town here, always. Mini-me is finishing 2 more years of uni, she switched from anthro to languages so it tacked on a couple of years. She joined the military in her free time and went through months of training this summer. Pretty epic, and scary at the same time. B-Dude is in his final year of PHD and if all goes well will be moving closer to home next spring. Not going to lie, that makes me seriously happy. I'm just rolling through life having a blast. No point fighting the crazy things that go on, I've learned to just embrace our wacky lives and laugh at it all.
If you hit any conferences this year I'd love to see you. I'll be in Chicago in November. L.A. hopefully in the winter for a photo workshop. Then NY in spring for a girls trip. Beyond that I don't know. I love travelling but I'm trying not to do as much work stuff and focus more on family stuff. If all goes well with schedules we'll be hitting Disney this winter. SO excited to go back.
Kayle (The Cooking Actress)
Awww that is so sweet 🙂 I hope I'll be a good mom 🙂
ahhh yes I know all about the scariness of a loved one joining the military--my brother just joined the airforce and he's excited and I think it could be good for him and his future but it also scares me and makes me sad because I'll miss him 🙁 But I'm so glad your son is going to be closer to home soon, that's the best 🙂
and I'm the lamest-I've never even been to a real, full on blog conference and I would love to! the money is always the issue but I feel like I should prob try to suck it up or something soon because if I'm ever going to go these next couple years of my life would be the time to do it!
