How to Make Sourdough Banana Waffles With Your Discard

The batter for these waffles is simple to mix up, and the waffles are light, crispy, and just the thing to have for a special Sunday or holiday breakfast. The waffles also are a good way to use up your sourdough discard and any bananas that have lingered too long in your fruit bowl. Buttermilk adds to the sourdough tang, as well as keeping the waffles light. If you don't have/can't find buttermilk, whisk together a cup of plain yogurt and a cup of milk and use that instead. For ease and a more pronounced sourdough tang, I make the batter and park it in the refrigerator overnight. The waffles are great with maple syrup, a dollop of yogurt, and more sliced bananas for a special morning treat. The plain waffles also reheat nicely in the toaster for breakfasts or snacks (try them with peanut butter) later in the week. Enjoy!
