You can't beat pure maple syrup for waffles and pancakes, but you can upgrade it nutritionally by adding fruit and toasted nuts.
Toast hazelnuts in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes.
Peel and slice bananas. Warm maple syrup on the stovetop or in the microwave. Top each serving of waffles (or pancakes) with sliced bananas, maple syrup and hazelnuts.
