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

Sophie (pictured) shared the things that help her keep her weekly grocery bill down after discovering that the majority of her customers spend as much as $ 500- $ 700 a week
Once you’ve done this, carefully scoop four or five tablespoons of the mixture into the waffle iron, press down on the waffle iron and cook it on your stovetop on both sides for about one or two minutes each.
“Once it’s done, all you have to do is take the waffles off the heat, add yogurt, berries and cocoa powder, and serve,” Sophie said.
“If I put them in the kids’ lunchboxes, I would probably leave them as is, but you can add nut butter or yogurt to make them even more delicious.”
Sophie’s first tip is a staple for good budget keepers around the world: she plans the week of meals before heading to the grocery store (pictured in her kitchen)
Hundreds who saw the easy recipe online said they were in love with the idea and couldn’t wait to try it for themselves.
“Omg, that looks great,” posted a commenter.
‘Oh my God. I need to get my hands on a waffle iron, ”added another.
Typically, the Guidolin family eats out twice a week – which she pulls out in the diary – but otherwise she opts for large dishes that can be used in her meal plans for lunch the next day (Sophie in the photo with her children)

One of the easiest ways Sophie (pictured) saves money is by making ‘basic’ dishes that can be used for other things later in the week
One of the easiest ways Sophie saves money is by making ‘basic’ dishes that can be used for other things later in the week.
“I have a lot of staples like my hearty mincemeat dish that I use for other dishes like nachos, stuffed potatoes, lasagna, and pasta baked later in the week,” she said.
This also means that after a busy day at work, she has to spend less time in the kitchen and can replenish the ground beef with what it needs.
Buying bulk food is one of the fastest ways to save money.
Sophie said she always picks up her ‘favorite’ oat milk for half price when she sees it, and buys two or three weeks worth of value before putting it away at home ready to drink.
Sophie said her favorite things to buy in bulk are oat milk (which has a long expiration date), rice, and preserves.
The mother also always buys meat in bulk and freezes it so that she is never caught without it.
