Banana spice waffles are full of warm cinnamon and nutmeg flavors that, paired with banana, make for a delicious waffle.

I love a good farmer’s market. Some of the ones in my area are not all that great but if you venture outside the city, to the agricultural mecca around the area, it’s a different story.

Around the Tampa area you find strawberries, blueberries, peaches, watermelon, onions and corn, just to name a few, that are all grown within a 50 mile radius. Many farms also have lettuce, blackberries, and various herbs.

Banana waffles are a great way to use up over-ripe fruit.

This week friends and I are sharing recipes that use ingredients found at farmer’s markets. I’ve made banana spice waffles with peanut butter syrup. By spice I mean it’s not heat, like cayenne, but rather warm spices like cinnamon and nutmeg.

While I know Elvis Presley would love this flavor combination, your family and brunch guests will too. The waffles won’t be perfect if you have a larger size waffle maker but that’s OK. The rustic look is kind of charming plus they will still be delicious.

More recipes that use farmer’s market ingredients include The Barefoot Contessa’s zucchini pancakes, pecan honey butter, or, for the grown ups, a blood orange whiskey smash.

Banana spice waffles with peanut butter syrup are perfect for #FarmersMarketWeek. Elvis would be proud.

  • In a separate bowl, using a mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whip the eggs until they are light in color and air has been incorporated. They should double in size.
