Sourdough Banana Waffles

Winter weather seems like the perfect time for waffles, and these Sourdough Banana Waffles will fuel you and your family well for school, work, holiday shopping, or the gym. I use a rye-based starter and additional rye flour in the waffles, which gives the waffles a deep, complex taste. You can certainly use a whole-wheat-based or other starter, if that's what you have. Plenty of buttermilk adds to the sourdough tang, and bananas and spices sweeten the mix. The waffles bake up light and tender after the batter sits overnight. Try the waffles with real maple syrup, plain yogurt, and more sliced bananas for a special morning treat. The plain waffles also reheat nicely in the toaster for later in the week.
