I tried a new Belgian Waffle recipe this weekend and had to share. Any time I cook something that actually turns out well, its worth blogging it. :) This one was a hit and we had no left overs. That also is evidence its worth cooking again. So enjoy!
- 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
- In a large bowl combine the flour, flax, sucanat (sugar), baking powder and salt.
- In another bowl, mix together your wet ingredients. The milk, eggs and vanilla.
- You then pour the wet ingredients into the dry. Stir until combined.
- Add in the coconut oil last, mix again (do not over mix)
- 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 :)
