Banana Split Waffles
The kids and I love having a huge variety of breakfast options to make on school days. The thing is, everything has to be ready in about 5 minutes or less. School mornings are super busy with three kids that require lots of help and an 8 AM leave time. These Banana Split Waffles come together in about 5 minutes and are a nutritious start to the day that is fun and out of our ordinary breakfast options. If you are working towards your wellness in the new year, these Banana Split Waffles, featuring Van's® Gluten Free Waffles, are a perfect option to start your day off right.


Healthy Banana Split Waffles
There are so many ways to top a waffle to make it a Banana Split Waffle. I chose to make these nutritious and more of a breakfast option than a dessert option. I topped my toasted Van's Gluten Free Waffles with Greek yogurt, drizzled peanut butter, fresh strawberries and bananas, crushed peanuts and a little dark chocolate because what is a banana split without some chocolate?

Healthy Banana Split Waffles Recipe
If you wanted to make these banana split waffles for dessert, I would do whipped cream instead of the Greek yogurt and add maybe some chocolate sauce and caramel. That would be fun!



Banana Split Waffles ingredients
We love Van's® Waffles because they taste so delicious, are nutritious, and toast up perfectly in our toaster. I picked up some blueberry, original and apple cinnamon waffles for this post. They are made with whole grain brown rice flour and have no high-fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. They're sweetened with fruit juice, have 21-23 grams of whole grains per serving and are free from dairy, egg, cholesterol and corn.

We also love the Van's Power Grains Waffles and Van's Organic Waffles when we can find those. They are dairy free, egg free, nut free and corn free.


Van's Waffles and Crackers
The Van’s® Gluten Free The Perfect 10® Crackers are awesome too with any kind of dip, peanut butter or my favorite, sharp cheddar cheese. They are made with oats, brown rice, millet, quinoa and amaranth. These are gluten-free which is awesome because they are super tasty and a great option for anyone needing a gluten-free diet.

Banana Split Waffles Nutrition

This breakfast is rich in protein from the Greek yogurt, peanuts and peanut butter. The strawberries and bananas are a good source of fiber and the waffles have some whole-grains. This is an all-in-one breakfast that will fill you up and keep you feeling your best. It is super kid-friendly as my kids took these from me as soon as I got done taking photos of them.

Van's Banana Split Waffles
Just like everyone else, we want to feel our best all the time. I work on choosing foods for my family that is going to help us feel well. Meals that are balanced that power us through our days. These waffles are a perfect example of whole-grains, protein, healthy fats and fiber.
