Friday Food: Flourless Crispy Flaxseed Waffles

This one comes to us from our friends at Coulee Health.  I enjoy a waffle as much as anyone but
anytime I can do a recipe just a little bit healthier I seem to enjoy it even more because I don't feel like it is going to throw my day off from the start.  This is a great option and covers almost all dietary restrictions.  Enjoy it this weekend.


-2 cups roughly ground golden flaxseed

-1 tbsp gluten-free baking powder
-1 tsp sea salt
-5 large eggs
-1/2 cup water
-1/3 cup avocado oil or extra-virgin olive oil or melted coconut oil
-1 tbsp fresh herbs or 2 tsp ground cinnamon

Game Plan

  1.  Heat your waffle maker to medium or your desired setting for crisp waffles.
  2. Combine flax seeds with baking powder and sea salt in a large bowl.  Whisk to combine fully and set aside.
  3. Add eggs, water and oil to the jug of your high-powered blender.  Blend on high for 30 seconds, until foamy.
  4. Transfer liquid mixture to the bowl with the flaxseed mixture.
  5. Stir with a spatula, just until incorporated.  The mixture will be very fluffy.  Once incorporated, allow to sit for 3 minutes.
  6. Add in your fresh herbs or stir in the ground cinnamon.
  7. Dive the mixture into 4 servings.  Scoop each; one at a time, onto the preheated waffle maker and close the top.  Cook until it beeps and repeat with remaining batter.
  8. Eat immediately or freeze in an air-tight container for a couple of weeks.  Can be frozen and then coated for a quick breakfast, lunch or dinner.
