I grew up never eating waffles. Nigel on the other hand, is definitely a waffle guy; he even owns a waffle iron. This may explain why the morning before he left for a 2 week trip, he woke up craving waffles. Though we had no eggs or milk in the house, we were determined, so after a quick trip to the store, I turned to Sprouted Kitchen for their go-to waffle recipe. You will not be disappointed. Trust me.

FLAX MEAL WAFFLES // made 3-4 waffles

Adapted slightly from Sprouted Kitchen

Heat the waffle iron.


1 egg
1 1/2 cup milk (I used soy)
2 tbsp orange juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbsp neutral oil

1/2 cup AP flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour 
1/2 cup almond flour 
2 tbsp flax meal
dash of cinnamon
2 tsp baking powder

yogurt and pomegranate to garnish

What to do:

Whisk the egg, milk, OJ and vanilla. Melt the coconut oil and add to the mixture; continue whisking.

In a large bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients. Once combined, and free of lumps, add the wet ingredients and stir to combine.

Add a large scoop of mixture to the hot iron, close the lid and let sit for roughly 4 minutes, or until the steam stops. When the waffle is golden brown, remove and enjoy warm. Don't stack them, they will get soggy.

Top with 1 scoop of yogurt and a handful of pomegranate seeds (or any topping of your choice!).
