Banana Nut Waffles – Eating Healthy on a Budget

IMG_20160626_104054

(There are two servings on that plate, for the record)

I had been asking for recipes, so Ingrid and I discussed a recipe site and went with the Food Babe. Now, the Food Babe is good about healthy recipes, but she’s on the more “extreme” level of health than I would push on basically anyone on a budget. So, we re-did the recipe a bit for a budget, and found that on a budget, while this wasn’t a bad meal for you, it really felt like it lost the “health” values of it. However, it was definitely tasty, and there are worse ways to have thick, fluffy waffles.

Syrup and Butter numbers are not included in the cost, as those are add ons, to me, for people to use or not use. As you can see from the picture, I totally did. And below is The Food Babe’s actual recipe, and then what we came up with after we tweaked it. For the record, walnuts WOULD be cheaper than the Honey Roasted Peanuts we used, but peanuts are what I had on hand, and it added an extra sweet flavor to it.
