MethodStrawberry Coulis: In food processor, purée together strawberries, sugar and lime juice until smooth; set aside. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 24 hours.)
Waffles: In large bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In separate bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk and butter; pour over flour mixture. Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips and stir just until combined.
Heat waffle iron; brush lightly with some of the vegetable oil. Using about 1/2 cup (125 mL) batter per waffle (or enough to spread to edges), pour onto waffle iron.
Close lid and cook until waffle is crisp, golden and steam stops, about 8 minutes. (Make-ahead: Let cool, wrap individually and freeze in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.) Keep warm in single layer on rack on baking sheet in 200°F (100°C) oven.
To serve, top each waffle with sliced bananas. Drizzle with coulis.
