Since Husband brought home a waffle iron, I have been dreaming up all of the amazing waffle creations I could make.
I even bought flax seeds, remember?
Unfortunately, I have never before made waffles, and I think I aimed a little too high.
I “followed” this recipe…
- 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
(or whole wheat flour, which makes it a bit heavier)
- 1 cup whole grain oats
- 1/4 cup flax seed (whole or meal)
- 2 tablespoons baking powder
- 1 dash salt
- 2 cups milk (milk substitutes work fine here)
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/4 cup melted butter or 1/4 cup margarine or 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
I substituted a tablespoon of brown sugar in hopes to add a bit of sweetness to what I was sure was going to taste like bland oatmeal, which is what it looked like.
In a blender, grind up flax (if you have whole seeds) and grains to a flour-like texture. If using flax seed meal, add it to the next step.
Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well.
In separate bowl, combine wet ingredients.
Add wet to dry and mix until moist.
Cook in preheated waffle iron. (Problem!)
I did the best I could!
I added butter… too much, and syrup… WAY too much to counteract the serious fiber-like taste. Fiber, yes. Cardboard… yes.
I am so full of fiber… ugh.
While my first attempt at waffle creation was FAIL, the recipe probably isn’t. Please use it if you feel like adding 4,000 grams of fiber in to your breakfast.
Know any good mistake-proof (and by that I mean “me” mistake-proof) healthy waffle recipes? Care to share?
I might take your recipe. Cook it. And then post what an awful job I did. :)
