Vegan MoFo 15: Peanut Butter-Banana Waffles with Blueberry Macadamia Nut Sauce. Low-gluten. Sugar- and Oil-free.

waffle from aboveWhat should be here is a recipe similar to Liv Life’s PBJ Banana Waffle Sandwiches, except that at this point in MoFo, I’m kinda done with PB & J sandwich iterations.  First was the mile-high French Toast Peanut Butter & Sandwiches back on Day 2, and then on Day 10, I served up a gooey mess called a Grilled PB & J.  So instead of more sandwiches, I created a crispy peanut butter and banana waffle – since you know I never tire of waffles – topped with a decadent blueberry sauce.  (Which also doubles as a delicious smoothie add-in.)  Liv’s recipe was listed at Number 17 on Buzzfeed’s 29 Ways to Honor the Glory of Peanut Butter and Jelly.

COMING UP ON MONDAY: I’m giving away a copy of Chef Amber Shea’s latest cookbook, Practically Raw Desserts, plus sharing her whole foods, creamy dessert, Dulce de Leche “Spooncream.”


Vegan Peanut Butter Banana Waffles

If waffles make you happy and peanut butter get your heart beating faster, then this is the combination to make your day! Top these crispy, tender waffles with fruity Blueberry-Macadamia Nut Sauce or go with the classic, pure maple syrup.

  • Author: Annie
  • Prep Time: 10
  • Cook Time: 20
  • Total Time: 30


  • 2 cups spelt flour
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup rice flour
  • 1 tsp. powdered stevia
  • pinch salt
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 3/4 cups water
  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • 2 tbsp. flaxseed meal + 6 Tbsp. water (whisk together and let sit for a few minutes)
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 200-degrees and get the waffle iron heating as well. Remember to put your breakfast plates in the oven so that they keep those waffles warm as you eat.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, stevia, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, mash the bananas and add the water, flaxseed meal mixture, and peanut butter and stir to combine. Pour this mixture into the flour mixture and stir well. A few lumps are okay.
  4. When the waffle iron is ready, give it a light spray with oil and ladle in some waffle batter. The amount will depend on the size of your iron. Cook for about 4 minutes or until the waffle is crispy and brown. Transfer the waffle to the rack in your oven and proceed with the remaining batter.


  • Serve waffles with Blueberry Macadamia Nut Sauce (recipe below) or with your usual fixings.
  • Yield depends on type and size of your waffle iron.

    Okay Annie, I have to tell you about a fantasy I’ve been having lately because you’re involved. Now don’t get all freaked out – it’s not dirty or anything. I just love your food photography so much and am still struggling with mine (still not using very many of my own photos) that I’ve been fantasizing about visiting you and watching you do the magic with setting up your food and taking photos. You really have the photography thing down girlfriend! Celeste 🙂

    You make me want to start up my hunt for a waffle iron again! Do you like yours? I really want one that doesn’t have a teflon coating and finding that kind of impossible to track down.
