Wheat, Oats & Milled Flax Seed Waffles



Ever wonder what to do with the wheat in your food storage? Here's a recipe that uses whole wheat and oats to make a delicious waffle.

I created this recipe on my quest to create a healthy waffle since my kids want to eat waffles several times a week. I took the sugar, white flour and fat out. Even my picky eater loved the waffle.

1.5 cups whole wheat flour (I ground whole white wheat in my Vitamix)
1.5 cups oat flour (I ground whole oats in my Vitamix as well)
1/2 teaspoon stevia (instead of sugar)
6 teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt
2 whole eggs
3 egg whites
1.5 cups plain almond milk
1.5 cups non-fat milk
12 tablespoons milled flax seed (instead of fat like butter or oil)

Grind the wheat and then measure. Grind the oats separately and then measure. Mix dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and mix thoroughly. Cook in waffle iron as directed. I imagine you could use all non-fat milk or almond milk if you prefer one to the other, but I used half of each (just make sure it equals 3 cups total).

You don't need to grind flax seed any more. Buy Ready to eat flax seeds (FlaxPro) from NutraPro International. Here is a link:

I don't grind my own flaxseed. I buy "milled flax seed" at Costco in a big bag. On the back of the package it gives substitution information - you can substitute milled flax seed for eggs or fats.
