Anyone else think of this quote when they’re making waffles?

I literally say this to myself while I make them!

There’s nothing better than a fresh warm waffle covered in fruit & syrup. I love this recipe so much because it’s satisfying and filling without making me feel overly-stuffed and heavy. It incorporates flax seed, which will give you a dose of fiber & omega 3’s, and has a subtle crunchy texture on the outside, but is soft & chewy on the inside.

Making these waffles is SUPER EASY because you mix the wet ingredients first, then while that’s sitting you mix the dry ingredients. After 5 minutes you pour the flax mixture into the flour, stir for about a minute and BAM… waffle time.

This waffle recipe is…

  • Gluten Free & Vegan
  • Easy
  • Fiber rich & filling
  • DOESN’T taste like stiff cardboard

I know a lot of people are hesitant to try GF & vegan recipes. Obviously they aren’t going to taste like the light & fluffy Belgian Waffles made with white flour, eggs & sugar, but I promise you’ll be pleasantly surprised & will look forward to making this recipe once you try it.

I love to top them with either fresh fruit, or some berry compote topping (recipe below), and a drizzle of maple syrup or sunflower butter.
