Easy Waffle French Toast

6 May 2017
Waffle French Toast with Bananas, Walnuts and Maple Syrup

This recipe sounds complicated but it is really TOO EASY. 

It is simply French toast cooked in a waffle iron to give it those waffle dimples that hold the maple syrup oh so well.

This recipe is also healthy (just don’t go too crazy with the maple syrup) as it contains:

  • wholegrain bread – for extra fibre and nutrients
  • eggs – for satisfying protein
  • banana – low GI (glycaemic index) carbs and minerals
  • walnuts – protein, unsaturated (healthy) fats, fibre and minerals

These waffles taste amazing with bananas which are in season right now.

Did you know that:

  • Bananas originally contained many large hard seeds? Cross breeding has made the the seedless varieties that we eat today.
  • Bananas are named after the Arabic word for ‘finger‘?
  • All bananas sold in Australia are Australian grown bananas? There are no banana imports due to the risk of disease and pests being spread to our local banana plantations.
  • Bananas are curved because they grow towards the sun.
  • Bananas are a great post-workout snack.
    • They contain low GI carbs (for slow-release energy) as well as vitamins and minerals that play an important role in energy production and muscle function. E.g. magnesium, potassium and Vitamin B-6.
