Personal trainer and fit mum Sophie Guidolin has shared her simple recipe for banana bread waffles – and she said they are perfect for kids’ lunchboxes as snacks, as well as afternoon tea.
The 31-year-old from Sydney revealed that her waffles take just five minutes to make and require a few household staples.
Sophie uses them both for herself and her children, and said they are a hit with friends and family alike.
‘Banana bread waffles – yeah, you read that right, and they tasted AS AMAZING as they sound!’ Sophie wrote on her website.

To make them, you’ll need three bananas, three eggs, 1/4 of a cup of the milk, three tablespoons of coconut oil and a packet of her Happy Way Banana Bread Mix, which costs $15.95 and is available online.
‘To start with, I’m just going to mash three bananas into a mixing bowl with a fork and then add three eggs,’ Sophie said in a video.
‘Then, just add a quarter of a cup of whatever milk you like best, three tablespoons of coconut oil and one packet of the Happy Way mix.’
Once you have all your ingredients in the bowl, the personal trainer said you just need to spray your waffle maker with a non-stick oil.
She likes Cobham Estate oil best.

Once you’ve done this, carefully spoon four or five tablespoons of the mixture into the waffle maker, press down on the waffle maker and cook it on either side on your stove top for around one or two minutes each.
‘Once it is cooked, all you need to do is remove the waffles from the heat, add yoghurt, berries and cacao powder and serve,’ Sophie said.
‘If I was putting them into the kids’ lunchboxes, I would probably leave them as is, but you can add nut butter or yoghurt to make them even better.’
Sophie’s first tip is a staple for good budget keepers the world over: she plans out the week of meals before she goes to the supermarket (pictured in her kitchen)
Hundreds who saw the simple recipe online said they were in love with the idea and couldn’t wait to try it for themselves.
‘Omg, that looks amazing,’ one commenter posted.
‘Oh my goodness. I need to get my hands on a waffle maker,’ another added.
Typically, the Guidolin family eats out twice a week – which she budgets for in the diary – but otherwise she opts for large dishes that can double up as lunches for the next day in her meal plans (Sophie pictured with her kids)

One of the easiest ways that Sophie (pictured) saves money is by making ‘base’ dishes that can be used for other things later in the week
One of the easiest ways that Sophie saves money is by making ‘base’ dishes that can be used for other things later in the week.
‘I have a bunch of base dishes like my savoury mince dish that I use for other dishes like nachos, stuffed potatoes, lasagne and pasta bake later in the week,’ she said.
This also means she needs to spend less time in the kitchen after a busy day at work and can just augment the mince with whatever it needs.
Buying bulk food is one of the quickest ways to save money.
Sophie said she always snaps up her ‘favourite’ oat milk when she sees it for half price, and buys two or three weeks’ worth before storing it at home ready to drink.
Sophie said her favourite things to buy in bulk are oat milk (which has a long expiration date), rice and tinned goods.
The mum also always buys meat in bulk and freezes it, so she’s never caught without.
