To prepare waffle:

1.  Cut the prepared waffle into 4 pieces or if you use smaller or for thinner waffles use 2 waffles for each person.  Slice the banana into slices so it's ready. 

2.  Heat the oil over medium heat in a non stick pan and then dip the waffle pieces into the custard and allow the excess to drip off. Place the dipped waffles into the hot pan. Allow to cook for about 2 minutes on the one side and then flip and cook the same in the other. Be careful not to burn it you just want a little color on both sides and to be heated all the way through. 

3. Once the waffle is ready. Assemble waffle slices and banana like a sandwich allowing a few for the top. Sprinkle with sweetened coconut and drizzle with cinnamon spread. 

4.  Drizzle maple syrup over the top if you would like and enjoy.
