Ingredients
Roasted Bananas
 2 ripe bananas
 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  tsp ground cinnamon
 1 pinch nutmeg
Waffles
 1 cup all-purpose flour
 ½ cup whole wheat flour
 1 tbsp baking powder
 ½ tsp kosher salt
  tsp ground cinnamon
 ¼ cup smooth peanut butter
 2 tbsp coconut sugar
 1 ¼ cups skim milk
 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
 1 roasted bananas
  cup fresh blueberries
Maple Peanut Butter Topping
 ½ cup smooth peanut butter
 1 tbsp water
  cup maple syrup

Directions
1

Preheat the oven to 400⁰F. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper. Then peel and cut the bananas in half lengthwise. Line halves up on the baking sheet, cut side up.

2

Sprinkle the sugar and spices evenly over the bananas. Then bake at 400⁰F until the bananas are caramelized, about 15 minutes.

3

Prepare the topping by whisking together the peanut butter, water, and maple syrup until smooth.

4

Prepare the waffles: Preheat the waffle iron. Then whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium-sized bowl or large measuring cup.

5

Whisk together the peanut butter, sugar, milk, and vinegar in a separate bowl. Then mash the roasted bananas into the wet mixture until evenly combined. Lightly coat the preheated waffle iron with butter, then spoon about ¼ cup of the batter onto the iron, and close and cook until both sides of the waffle are golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.

6

Repeat the above steps until there is no longer any batter. Keep finished waffles warm in the oven until ready to serve. Then serve with the maple peanut butter topping and fresh blueberries.

Hi! I’m Lauren, currently a Nutritional Sciences student at the University of Connecticut. My interest in food and nutrition started when I was about 13 years old. In some of my spare time I would research online the different food trends that were going on at the time. When my friends would come over we’d spend the day baking and cooking different creations we found on the internet or from our favorite cookbooks. At 13 though, it was somewhat difficult to decipher what was fact and what was fad. The internet is an endless virtual world of both legitimate and deceitful information. Throughout high school I took it upon myself to try and analyze what the best “diet” is to follow. I experimented on myself. Sometimes I felt great, sometimes I felt lousy, sometimes I was just plain hungry. I was in high school, I was following what the media and the internet told me to do. I didn’t justify it with facts, nor did I look for the hard science behind these “diets.” This is why I chose to go to school for Nutritional Sciences. I want the science, I want to know what the body does and how food nourishes it. I want to help people of all ages understand how nourishing your body and following a healthy lifestyle can change the way you feel. So they don’t have to struggle and experiment on yourself with the fad diets the media is constantly pumping out. I’m starting Naturally.LT to link you to articles, the studies, the passages to the books I’ve read all written by health professionals. I want to share with you recipes that I’ve found and created myself that are tasty and full of nutrients that will make you and your body happy. I will back up these findings with credible sources, there is no room for junk here. As you may have noticed on Naturally.LT, I have a link to running. Running has somewhat recently come into my life. Once I entered college, something just clicked. I loved the way running made me feel. I became happier, less stressed, and entered an awesome accepting community. Before I knew it I signed up for half and full marathons. Running is an interesting sport, both solitary and meditative, but can also be competitive and adrenaline pumping. This is something I want to explore on Naturally.LT. If you are a first time runner, or a seasoned veteran, I want to open discussion and help guide you with what can help you lace up your shoes or become a stronger runner and recover faster. So join me on this journey of nourishment and endurance.
