Who doesn’t love a good waffle? With the packaged waffles from the store you also get the packaged “stuff” inside of those waffles, like preservatives and added sugar and who knows what else.
The only thing extra I’ve added is some chia seeds! Chia seeds provide lots of great nutrients such as protein, fiber, and antioxidants. If you’re not a chia seed fan, no biggie, you can’t even taste them, or you can always leave them out!
Utensils you will need:
1 large mixing bowls, 1 medium mixing bowl, 1 small mixing bowl, Spatula for mixing, blender/mixer (a fork may work if you are good at whipping), waffle maker
- 2 1/4 cup 100% whole wheat flour
- 1TBS baking powder
- 3 TBS sugar
- 1/2 TSP cinnamon
- 3 TBS chia seeds (optional)
- 2 L eggs
- 1/2 Cup olive oil
- 2 Cups unsweetened Almond milk (or any substitute)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1TBS honey, Agave or Maple syrup (for topping)
Crack eggs to separate yolks from whites. Whip egg whites and set aside to fold in last. In a separate bowl combine, flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon, and chia seeds. In another separate bowl combine egg yolks, olive oil, almond milk, and vanilla, mix well.
Slowly add wet ingredients (all but egg whites) to dry ingredients. I use my Kitchen Aid Mixer for this.
Once ingredients are mixed, fold in, with a spatula, whipped egg whites.
Next, scoop out batter 1/2 cup for each side of your waffle maker. Once cooked, you can enjoy now with your favorite topping (honey, Agave, or Maple Syrup), or place in a freezer bag and freeze to enjoy later!
Enjoy with a side of your favorite fruit!
