Dr Eva says that "It just shows how you can make healthy food that is super tasty." Note: You will need a waffle maker!


  • 1 medium egg
  • 150 ml milk
  • 1 tblsp honey
  • 1 tblsp groundnut oil
  • 0.25 tsp vanilla extract
  • 80 g banana (peeled weight)
  • 110 g white flour
  • 50 g porridge oats
  • 0.5 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 0.5 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 0.5 tsp baking soda
  • 3 tblsp water
  • 3 tblsp low-calorie sweetener
  • 300 g strawberries
  • light spray oil


  • Crack an egg into a bowl and whisk together with the milk, honey, oil and vanilla extract.
  • Peel and mash the banana and blend together with the egg/milk mixture. You may need to use a hand blender.
  • In a separate bowl mix the flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and bicarbonate of soda. Slowly add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients, blending them all the time.
  • Do this until you have created a smooth mixture. Heat the waffle maker to a medium heat (I use a Cuisinart waffle maker set at level 3) and spray some light spray oil on it.
  • Pour the waffle mixture into the centre of the grid and spread it out evenly until it completely covers the lower grid. Close down the lid and allow to cook.
  • Leave for about 4 minutes (or until your machine beeps to indicate it’s ready). In the meantime, wash some strawberries and chop into small pieces.
  • Add to a pot with the low-calorie sweetener and the water. Place on a medium heat and stir continuously until the strawberries melt and the juice creates a syrup. When the waffles are ready, serve on a plate and top with the strawberry syrup.


Although this is quite a bit of work for 4 waffles, it is better to make this recipe in small quantities as the waffles taste best when they are warm and fresh.
