Make Elvis proud and whip up a batch of these peanut butter and banana waffles that will have any morning starting off on the right foot.


  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)

  • 2 tablespoons sugar

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt

  • ¼ cup (½ stick) unsalted butter, melted, plus more for brushing waffle iron

  • 6 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

  • 2 cups buttermilk

  • 2 large eggs

  • 3 bananas, sliced, for serving

  • ¾ cup pure maple syrup, for serving


  1. Heat waffle iron and preheat oven to 275 degrees; set a wire rack in a rimmed baking sheet and place in oven. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a blender, blend butter and peanut butter until smooth, 1 minute. Add buttermilk and eggs and blend until combined, 1 minute. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture and stir just until batter is combined.

  2. Brush waffle iron with butter and pour in 1/2 to 3/4 cup batter, leaving a 1/2-inch border on all sides. Close iron and cook until waffles are golden brown, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer waffles to rack in oven to keep warm; repeat with remaining batter. Serve with bananas and maple syrup.
