Banana Waffles served at the Parish House Inn bed and breakfast

Banana Waffles with pecans on a pink plate
This is a recipe that is dairy free (just 2 tablespoons of butter)and a delicious way to use up those very ripe bananas. Top them with pecans, additional sliced bananas  or other fresh berries, add bacon or sausage and you have breakfast!  Enjoy.

1 cups yellow cornmeal
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 ripe bananas
1 cup water
3 large eggs
2 tablespoons butter (or margarine) melted and cooled
