How to Use Your Discard to Make Sourdough Banana Waffles

Winter weather seems like the perfect time for waffles, especially when egg prices are high. These easy Sourdough Banana Waffles will fuel you and your family well for whatever weekend or weekday projects you have on hand. I use whole-wheat flour in the batter, which adds to the taste, and buttermilk amplifies the sourdough tang. Bananas and spices sweeten the mix (and you can use up those mushy bananas!). 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. Enjoy!
