Walnut Flax Waffles

By on March 21, 2013


11⁄2 cups plain almond milk           

2 tbsp vegetable oil           

1 tbsp pure maple syrup           

2 tsp vanilla extract           

11⁄2 tsp cider vinegar           

3 tbsp ground flax seeds (flaxseed meal)

1 cup whole wheat flour           

11⁄2 tsp baking powder           

1⁄2 tsp baking soda           

1⁄8 tsp fine sea salt           

1⁄2 cup chopped toasted walnuts           



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 batter into waffle maker. Cook according to manufacturer's instructions until golden brown.


Look for packages of ready-ground flax seeds, which may be labelled "flaxseed meal," or use a spice or coffee grinder to grind whole flax seeds to a very fine meal.
