Healthy Whole Grain Belgian Waffle

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup freshly ground white hard wheat (any wheat flour will do)
  • 1/2 cup flax meal
  • 1/4 cup sucanat or sugar
  • 1.5 tbsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups raw milk (whole milk or non-fat milk/almond milk works as well)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (do not reduce!)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl combine the flour, flax, sucanat (sugar), baking powder and salt.
  2. In another bowl, mix together your wet ingredients. The milk, eggs and vanilla.
  3. You then pour the wet ingredients into the dry. Stir until combined.
  4. Add in the coconut oil last, mix again (do not over mix)
  5. Pour roughly 1/2 cup batter into a preheated waffle maker. The amount of batter will depend on what size waffle iron you have. :) So just do what you feel works best. Allow it to cook until steam rate slows down coming from your waffle iron, or until waffle is a crisp brown. I have found with waffles, cooking them a little longer is key to getting a crispy outside. :)

*A tip for Flax Meal… I buy my flax in a seed form. It to me is the best way to use flax. Grind it using a coffee grinder to ensure fresh and nutritious flax meal. Its SUPER easy to do and IMO a lot fresher tasting too. Store your seed flax in a fridge though, do not store it in the pantry.. it goes bad way to fast if you do. I buy my Flax from Aldi right now. VERY inexpensive and easy to find. Here is a great post that explains WHY you should do this and the benefits of using flax in your food.

Hope you enjoy the recipe :)
