Banana Nut Waffle Cookies

Aurora McBee


Inspired by Kellie Shulver's Chocolate Turtles Waffle Cookies, these are a great way to use up dark bananas and much faster than banana bread. They are slightly crisp on the outside and moist on the inside. Even better, they only take about ten minutes!

How to Make Banana Nut Waffle Cookies


  1. Melt butter in a medium mixing bowl. Set aside.
  2. Pre heat waffle iron.
  3. In another bowl sift together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Add eggs, vanilla, and bananas to melted butter. Mix well. Add brown sugar and mix.
