Banana Cinnoman Waffles

I know, I know! It has been since forever that I have posted. We have been truly busy lately. I have not been cooking to many new things. I did get my waffle iron for Christmas, so here is a recipe for waffles that I used.

The Menu:
Banana Cinnoman Waffles


The Original Recipe:
I found this online while googling for banana waffles! I believe it is from Cooking Light.

1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups fat-free milk
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 large ripe banana, mashed
Cooking spray

Preparation
Lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours, flaxseed, and next 4 ingredients (through salt) in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk.
Combine milk, butter, and eggs, stirring with a whisk; add milk mixture to flour mixture, stirring until blended. Fold in mashed banana.
Preheat a waffle iron. Coat iron with cooking spray. Spoon about 1/4 cup batter per 4-inch waffle onto hot waffle iron, spreading batter to edges. Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until steaming stops; repeat procedure with remaining batter.
