This post is a collaboration between My Gluten Free Miami and Eight Sleep. The mattress used in this post was provided by Eight Sleep in exchange for an honest opinion.

Every Mom’s Dream

I am pretty sure that every mom dreams of that one day, where they sleep late and wake to a delicious breakfast, served to them on a fancy tray. Fruit, waffles, coffee, juice- the works. Of course, we all know that’s not reality, even if the breakfast in bed did happen, there would probably be quite a few dishes piled up afterward. Though for these gluten free banana foster waffles, the dishes would be worth it! Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside and smothered in bananas cooked in a decadent bananas foster syrup. This breakfast does not disappoint.

Regardless of whether you are getting that breakfast in bed (complete with gluten free bananas foster waffles!) you still need to get a good nights sleep!

Eight Sleep Mattress

Update: We still love our mattress (see the Video update above!) We have actually since purchased two more. One for my mom and one for my daughter.

Our mattress bit the dust. So much so, that my husband back was hurting all the time, everyone was waking up cranky. When Eight Sleep offered us a mattress to review, we jumped at the opportunity. While it hasn’t gotten me breakfast in bed, I have gotten a great’s night sleep! As you can see, my little one was super excited about our new mattress. I was a bit unsure about it at first. The whole mattress came all rolled up in that small box, but within minutes it had magically turned itself into a queen-sized mattress. I thought it would take a few nights to get used to it, but that hasn’t been the case. With 4 foam layers, it is super comfy.


Eight Sleep Mattress BoxIt has me sleeping like I don’t have a toddler crawling into bed with me in the middle of the night. No more huge dents in the mattress that I fall into. It springs right back into shape, molding your body. Heaven. I could eat breakfast in bed without spilling the breakfast all over me.


Plus, with its special construction, you don’t feel the person next to you when they move. They say it bounces like latex and conforms like foam and they are right. My little one loves it so much, we bought one for her!. If you want to try an Eight Sleep Mattress, click on any Eight Sleep Mattress link in this post.

We are loving our new mattress. Eight Sleep also offers a really cool electronic pad that goes with the mattress. It monitors your sleep, heats the bed, all kinds of cool stuff. I haven’t tried it yet, but it’s on my list! I can’t wait to turn my mattress into a SMART mattress. My techy hubby is going to love it.

Banana Foster Waffle

Back to the Bananas Foster Waffles

Being that I am now much more well rested than I had been, I have been working on this bananas foster sauce. The last thing I remember eating before my Celiac Diagnoses was Bananas Foster French Toast from Ihop. It was nothing compared to this. The first time I tried Bananas Foster was in New Orleans and these waffles bring back memories.

Bananas Foster Waffles

Sinking my teeth into these crisp waffles and having the bananas just melt in my mouth is what dreams are made of. These made from scratch waffles are so easy. I first made them to go with my Chicken and Waffles, but they work perfectly for this. I have a new waffle maker that I won in the Gluten Free Cookie Swap this year (Peppermint Snickerdoodles!)and it made them so crispy and tender.

The sauce is the perfect balance of sweet, with a slight bite from the alcohol. Traditionally the sauce uses rum, but bourbon works well too. It is really simple to make, just watch your heat because it can burn quickly. If you’re looking for a healthier breakfast featuring bananas try the Overnight Peanut Butter Banna Pudding Oatmeal from A Mindful Mom, yum! Prefer pancakes over waffles? How about this Easy Coconut Flour Pancakes Recipe with Cream Cheese from Wholesum Yum! If you love a classic Gluten Free Buttermilk Pancake, then you need this recipe from Veggie Balance!

I hope you enjoy these gluten free banana foster waffles as much as I do and if you’re in the market for a new mattress, be sure to check out Eight Sleep Matresses. They are like sleeping on a cloud (that’s perfectly firm and soft all in one :-)).

If you could have breakfast in bed, what would you want on your tray?

  1. Oh, I so relate to you on sleeping matters. If I don’t get enough GOOD night sleep, I wake up so grumpy, and I end up tired all day. And good mattress IS necessary for good night sleep 😉 Well I wouldn’t complain if my hubby surprises me with breakfast in bed with this lovely waffles! Love the sound of that sauce. Looks really delicious!

  2. Bananas Foster is one of my favorite desserts so I know I will be just fine with eating it for breakfast. Breakfast in bed never happens for me because I would either get cereal or a mess of dishes like you. Who am I kidding, cereal will produce the same amount of mess in my house. I love that mattress! I hope you got a great night sleep and then devoured these pancakes the next am!

  3. Oh, my! Yes, this is definitely my dream nowadays, to have a yummy breakfast all by myself. With a newborn and a toddler, a decent breakfast seems to be pretty impossible for now, so I would never say no to something like that. How delightful! That topping looks delish!

  4. The banana foster waffles look spot on!! It’s a perfect weekend brunch for us and I’m so loving your new Eight Sleep Mattresses. A good night sleep is just as important as eating great food for our body 🙂

  5. You are right getting breakfast in bed not often happens at my home. I think if ever get one I would like to
    have with your bananas foster waffles they look so yum.

  6. I’ve heard plenty about bananas foster, but I’ve never tried it before. But, I can promise you this,
    once I do try it, it will be in the form of a waffle! This looks delicious!

  7. A good mattress is so critical for a good night sleep (and even for a nap). I would not mind waking up to this breakfast even if on a bad mattress. These waffles would make up to a bad night sleep. I am not gluten free, but just seeing how delicious they look, I might give it a try!

  8. We’re in the market for a new mattress too … a good night’s sleep is such a big deal!
    And, I agree, what mother hasn’t dreamt of a wonderful breakfast in bed and them realized that all the work that would follow, it just isn’t worth it. LOL

    However, I’m thinking these waffles will be on next Sunday’s brunch menu!

  9. That is a moment where I wished I had a waffle maker at home. But I don;’t and I am left sitting in front of the screen, craving your amazing banana foster waffles. I am in love with the flavors you chose!

  10. That looks really yummy, although I have not eaten anything is gluten. I’d say I will give a try because I heard so many good thing about it. Those fruit shape are so cute as well. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  11. I’ve never tried anything gluten! These look very interesting! You have a lot of energy because girlll I know that’s a lot of work! It’s more expensive too right?

  12. First off a good mattress is a must!! Glad you got some much-needed rest. Second, I am making this these on Sunday!! Always looking for great brunch food, this is perfect…I can’t wait!! Thank you!!

  13. I concur – a good mattress is critical to a good nights sleep! I might sleep even better if I knew I was getting waffles for breakfast. Yum! Here’s a fun fact – I’ve never had anyone bring me breakfast in bed. Ever. Probably because I’m an early riser. I do, however, get coffee in bed on a rare occasion.

  14. It is definitely time for us to get a new mattress. This one looks perfect! And it would be wonderful paired with these waffles! I love those bananas on top.
