Ingredients:

1 large banana, mashed
1 3/4 cups soymilk or 1 3/4 cups rice milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon
Nectave agave nectar
2 cups gluten-free flour (I use Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free All-Purpose Baking Flour)
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped almonds or 1/2 cup walnuts or 1/2 cup pecans


Directions:

1 Heat waffle iron.
2 Beat bananas, milk substitute, oil, and
Nectave agave nectar with a wire whisk or electric mixer.
3 Stir in flour, baking powder and salt until just mixed. Batter may be lumpy.
4 Fold in nuts or berries or chocolate chips.
5 Spray waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour about 2/3 cup of batter onto the center of the iron. Close lid.
6 Bake about 5 minutes or until steaming stops. Carefully remove waffle and serve with non- hydrogenated margarine (I like Earth Balance Natural Buttery Spread) and real maple syrup or honey. Other serving suggestions: spread with peanut butter or top with fresh berries and vegan whipped cream or vegan ice cream.
7 If you have extra batter, either store it in an airtight container in the fridge for a day or two OR go ahead and cook up some more waffles and freeze them in Ziploc bags. Then toast for a weekday morning treat!
