Butter Pecan Banana Waffles

I am a huge fan of waffles, especially waffles that have an extra added ingredient or two in them. Take for example my bacon waffles – those are awesome! But these definitely come in a close second.


Butter Pecan Banana Waffles

  • 1 batch waffle batter (enough to make 12 waffles. Here is the homemade recipe I use for waffles, but you could just as easily use your favorite recipe or even a boxed mix)
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 3/4 c. brown sugar
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • 1/4 t. nutmeg, optional
  • 2 bananas, quartered lengthwise and sliced
  • 1 c. chopped pecans
  • 1 1/2 t. vanilla or maple extract

1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar, cinnamon and optional nutmeg. Cook about 2-3 minutes, until bubbles form and it begins to take on a melted caramel consistency. Stir in bananas and pecans. Cook an additional 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla or maple extract. Cool to room temperature.


2. While the pecan banana mixture cools, prepare waffle batter and warm waffle iron.

3. Once cooled, reserve 1/2 c. pecan banana mixture in the skillet and stir the remaining sauce into the waffle batter just until combined.


4. Cook per waffle maker instructions. However, these tend to be a bit stickier than other waffles, so you will probably need to grease the waffle iron between each batch.


5. To serve, warm the remaining sauce in the skillet until heated through. Pour over waffles. The waffles are equally good with maple syrup or even plain. They freeze and reheat in the toaster beautifully.

If you really want to take them to another level and make these waffles a finer thing, serve them for dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and hot pecan banana mixture on top.

  1. I am making these right now (the night before) I have made the sauce less the pecans because I have none on hand. I tasted the sauce before I mixed it into the batter and let me tell you….wow this stuff alone is great I will be making this in the morning for my son and I and I know he will just love them.

  2. I guess I should confess that I don’t have a waffle iron and only make toaster waffles. 🙁 I do love to eat strawberries and whip cream on my waffles. Your bacon ones sound really good.
    Have a great weekend!

  3. I enjoy owning and operating a beautiful B&B in Prescott AZ. This morning, I had a bunch of guests and a bunch of bananas, so searched for a banana waffle recipe. These looked great, so I baked them up for breakfast, along with a choice of maple turkey sausage or black pepper bacon. The only tweaking I did, was I omitted some of the liquid in my usual malted waffle recipe so that I could add some of the sauce. This recipe was a BIG hit all around the table. Eveyone loved them, took seconds, and hung around the dining table longer than usual really enjoying themselves. I will make this one again and again! Thank you for sharing yumminess. ~ Linda @ Blessing Retreat
