Chocolate Banana Waffles

I love Trader Joe's, it is my all time favorite little grocery store. They may not have everything, but they sure do have what matters, like their multigrain pancake mix. It is so versatile! I've even seen recipes for biscuits for it. But this time my sister decided to make waffles. She just got a 3-in-1 sandwich press, grill, and waffle maker and thought she should put it into good use. To top things off, she added chocolate chips and mashed bananas, one of my favorite flavor combinations. Making waffles couldn't have been any easier or more delicious! It's great too because we like to pre-make them, freeze them and then grab them on the go whenever we're in a rush. It's a hearty and stress-free breakfast. 

Chocolate Banana Waffles
Yields: 15 - 20 Waffles

1/4 of Trader Joe's Multigrain Pancake Mix
2 - 3 overripe bananas, mashed with a fork
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
canola oil spray

In a large bowl, mix the pancake batter according to the directions on the box (you can make as much of this as you want, just make sure to fix the chocolate chip and banana amounts accordingly). Stir in mashed bananas and chocolate chips. Heat waffle iron and spray with canola oil before each time, cook until golden brown, about 8 - 10 minutes. Enjoy!
