Healthy Waffles

on June 26, 2012

My family absolutely adores breakfast for dinner…any breakfast-like item, including waffles.  Filled with wholesome ingredients like oats, flax meal and bananas, these tasty gems have surely become a favorite in the Carlson household. (And they are super, super quick to make too.)

2 cups oats, old fashion is what I use, but I’m sure quick cooking would work fine as well

1/4 cup flax meal

1 cup water

1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1 Tbsp. agave

One large banana

1 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

large pinch of salt

1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Put all ingredients in a blender and mix.  Scrape down if necessary.  Fill a waffle iron with batter and cook until done, mine took about 4-7 minutes to fully cook.

Serve with natural nut butter, fresh sliced fruit and a little drizzle of agave or honey.
