Summer waffles with pineapple, banana and coconut (low FODMAP, vegan, gluten free)

Posted on Updated on

Winter is finally fading away in Sydney. Sun is shining and warm. The golden cane plants are back to life and the garden is looking fantastic.  This beautiful morning I made my tropicana waffles for breakfast and enjoyed them by the pool.

My tropicana waffles are some of my best waffles – super crispy on the outside, beautifully moist on the inside, and full of the goodness of banana, pineapple and coconut milk.  A little icing sugar on top makes it super handsome. Who would think vegan waffles could be so yummy..

Waffles with pineapple, banana and coconut (low FODMAP, vegan, gluten free)

Recipe is as follow:

(makes 4 waffles, serves 4 as a low FODMAP recipe)


  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 cup corn starch
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 160ml coconut milk (from can)
  • 1 cup pineapple, diced
  • 1 medium firm sugar banana, diced
  • 4 tbsp peanut oil
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds, lightly toasted

Cook the pineapple pieces with a little water in microwave, covered, on high, for 3 minutes (I use 2 bowls, one as a lid); carefully remove from the microwave, add the banana pieces and a little more water, cooked in microwave for further 2 minutes, covered.

Mix all ingredients with a whisk. Cook in a waffle maker until cooked.

Served with a sprinkle of icing sugar (optional).
