Buttermilk Waffles With Bananas And Black Sesame


Hands down this may be the best tasting waffle I’ve ever made. 

And I make a lot of waffles (like Acorn Squash Waffles  / Chocolate Chip Avocado Waffles )

Toast sesame seeds -> do not skip this step. Place sesame seeds (white variety can be used too) in a dry skillet, cook over medium heat for 3-5 minutes (stirring often), until you begin  to hear popping sound and a few seeds start to jump. Transfer into another bowl or plate and let cool.  

Almond flour (use super fine variety) makes a super tender waffle and bumps up the nutrition factor —my go-to for panackes/waffles.

you always make such delicious sound stuff! the title only mentions banana and black sesame, which already sounds amazing, and then with nutty almond flour and coconut oil (which always makes things feel tropical-y and beach-y)?! i need this for brunch, asap.

I'm in love with these waffles! They're so wholesome with all the almond flour and adding bananas, and the toasted sesame seeds must make these so special. I really want to try these!
