Banana Cinnamon Waffles

This is another recipe that I made awhile back and have just gotten around to posting now. We don't frequently make waffles, but they're a nice treat on a lazy Sunday morning. I love to top them with various fresh fruit before adding syrup. These aren't as fluffy as Belgian waffles, but are much healthier and I still find them quite tasty.

1 C all-purpose flour
1/2 C whole-wheat flour
1/4 C buckwheat flour
1/4 C ground flaxseed
2 tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 C milk
3 tbsp. melted butter
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 large ripe banana, mashed

1. Combine flours, flaxseed and next 4 ingredients (through salt) in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk.

2. Combine milk, butter and eggs with a whisk; add milk mixture to flour mixture, stirring until blended. Fold in mashed bananas.

3. Preheat a waffle iron. Coat iron with cooking spray. Spoon about 1/4 C batter per grid, spreading batter to edges. Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until steaming stops; repeat procedure with remaining butter.
