Full O’Flax Waffle!

gorgeous right! I like it with whipped cream but you could go healthy and cause it with a warm berry sauce and greek yogurt

birds eye view shot

So a little tid bit about me, I’m the only person in my family born in the United States. Yes, I’m a mutt. My dad’s Belgian, I actually am too since I’m his daughter so I have a Belgian passport (I have three different passports! different colors too!).  Anyhow, I go to Belgian almost every year. My Grandmother still lives there and I’ve been going almost twice a year since I was born. So I was bred to like good chocolate and good waffles.  I indulge in REAL Belgian waffles when I visit. There are lots of different kinds in Belgium and what you find at IHOP is definitely NOT what you’d find there!  Anyhow, I thought I’d make my own, healthier version. I just bought a waffle iron for 16 bucks at Target and its wonderful so I think its a good investment.  Heres what I used, you can modify to your liking: -1/2 egg sub or whites, or two whole eggs -2 tbs flaxseed meal (or 2tbs Coconut flour, I used flaxseed meal for this) -1/8tsp baking powder -dash of cream of tartar -tsp of extract of choice (get creative! I used banana!) mix all the ingredients up in a blender/magic bullet/mixer and pour in a in a circular motion in the waffle pan. Spray your pan if it tends to stick but mine didnt need extra greasing! slipped right off! Look how beautiful!!!!!

  1. That is one scrumptious-looking waffle right there. My friend Jennie just got back from Bruxelles and Bruges. Apparently there’s some separatist movement among the Flemish-speakers going on over there, but the architecture is pretty neat. Parlez-vous français ou flamand/en néerlandais?
