Preheat the Waffle Iron:

Cooking the Waffles:

Tips and Tricks:
Ripe Bananas: Use ripe bananas for a natural sweetness and enhanced flavor.
Sift Dry Ingredients: Sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and baking soda for a smoother batter.
Controlled Pouring: Pour the batter onto the waffle iron carefully to avoid overflow and messy cleanup. Try using a non-metal spoon or a scoop/ladle (most waffle irons come in nonstick style) and start from the middle then work your way to the edges.
Experiment with Toppings: Elevate your waffles with toppings like sliced bananas or other fruits of preferences, chopped nuts, or a decadent drizzle of melted chocolate chips or a dollop of whipped cream.
Vanilla Infusion: The key to a subtle vanilla essence is using high-quality vanilla extract. Add it to the wet ingredients for even distribution.
