Food Friday Featuring: Crispy Waffles & Maple Bananas

Have you ever tried Stroopwafels? They are delectable, crispy and have just the right touch of sweetness. When I was pregnant with my first daughter, I ate these babies by the package! Jamie Oliver has put together a recipe that looks positively divine, using these delicious biscuits.

• 8 stroopwafels (Dutch caramel waffle biscuits)

In a very low oven, heat the stroopwafels. Place a frying pan on a high heat, add a good knob of butter and cook till it foams, then add the bananas and maple syrup and cook for 2 mins or until golden. Serve the warm waffles with bananas and an extra drizzle of maple syrup, and a spoonful of Greek yoghurt for breakfast, or ice cream as a pudding.
