Walnut Flax Waffles
- Yield 8 servings
You might try these waffles because of all you've heard about the benefits of flax seeds—from the omega-3s to the lignans to the fiber—but you'll fall in love with them (and make them many times over) for the flavor.
- 1 1/2 cups plain almond milk
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cider vinegar
- 3 tablespoons ground flax seeds (flaxseed meal)
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts
- Nonstick cooking spray
- In blender, combine almond milk, oil, maple syrup, vanilla and vinegar. Let stand for 10 minutes. Add flax seeds and blend for 1 minute or until slightly frothy.
- In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add almond milk mixture and stir until just blended. Gently stir in walnuts.
- Spray preheated waffle maker with cooking spray. For each waffle, pour about 1⁄3 cup (75 mL) batter into waffle maker. Cook according to manufacturer’s instructions until golden brown.
