Tasty Grain Waffles
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup quick or old fashioned oats
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup flaxseed meal (ground flax seeds)
1 tablespoon sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 3/4 cups unsweetened nondairy milk (I use soy)
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg replacer (I use Ener-g)
1. Sift flours into a large bowl. Add oats, wheat germ, flaxseed meal, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Whisk lightly enough to combine.
2. Turn on and preheat the waffle iron. Spray some nonstick before it gets hot. Mix milk, applesauce, canola oil, and vanilla extract in a medium bowl. In a small bowl whisk egg replacer and warm water (according to package directions) turbulently until well blended and foamy.
3. Add the beaten egg replacer to the wet ingredients and lightly whisk until combined. Create a well in the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredient mixture. Whisk until smooth and well combined.
4. Ladle just enough batter into the iron to cover most of the bottom plate, press and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes or until golden. Enjoy!
There's a plentiful amount of ingredients, maybe some not so readily available, but I assure you it's well worth the hunt to get them all. Trust me, I love the idea of 2 ingredients making magic, but this abundant recipe truly shines. Fear not, for in times of despair this recipe also handles substitutions very well.
-They freeze and reheat in a toaster amazingly. -Top with fruit and maple syrup because it looks great, and tastes fantastical. -Recipe doubles and triples nicely; waffle party.-Don't cover them to keep warm, they'll get soggy. Instead, keep them out in the open and reheat in a toaster or keep them in a 200 degree oven. -Don't be afraid to semi-reconstitute the batter with a little water if after some time it gets thick
