It wasn’t too long ago when I purchased my first bag of cassava flour in my August Thrive Market haul, excited to give this paleo flour a try.  Shortly after I made my Strawberry Cassava Flour Waffles and knew that I had fallen in love with this flour.  I’ve been on a waffle kick lately (I mean, who doesn’t love a good waffle?), so I once again went to work on a new waffle recipe.

Did I mention that I am in love with cassava flour? It has definitely become my favorite paleo flour to cook with and I think I will always have some on my pantry from now on.  It was the perfect base for these paleo Banana Bread waffles.

This recipe comes just in time for fall, which is perfect because the Maple Cinnamon Butter added over the top gave it a nice fall flavor.  These waffles were delicious! It was like having dessert for breakfast!
