  • Make sure to use ripe bananas! They will make a much more flavorful banana bread batter.
  • Let the waffle iron heat up before you add the waffle batter.
  • Leave some lumps in the batter—it's better that way.
  • You can reheat waffles by placing them in the toaster.
  • If you're making multiple batches, you can keep your first few waffles warm by setting them on a baking tray in the oven on very low heat.
  • Cook for longer for crispier waffles.
