Tasty Grain Waffles

What you need: 

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
pinch salt
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)

What you do: 

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

Delicious!  Loved the hearty taste and that they weren't soft, but crunchy waffles.  


Super YUM!

I make waffles in big bunches and freeze them for my family. I omitted the sugar and vanilla (watching sugar) and upped the applesauce just a smidge.

LOVE THESE! My new go to waffle recipe! Thanks!


I think I may be in love with these :)>>>
I've made these twice now and they are really good, crisp outside and very flavorful.  They are great as is, no syrup or toppings necessary. The only changes I made were  to skip the flax and up the oatmeal just a bit, plus I used olive oil for the oil, brown sugar for the sugar, and I used vanilla soy milk powder instead of regular soy milk, and just added the appropriate amount of water to the liquid mixture.  After years without a toaster, I went out and got one just for reheating these.  They are so, so good!  Thank you for sharing this recipe!


I made them. And they are good :)


Im going to make these, and i hope they work out ok without Applesauce!

Very delicious and easy!  I received a waffle iron as a Christmas gift, and its one of the best kitchen tools I own.  These waffles puffed up nicely and were very hearty in the same rite.  I didn't have flax seed meal, so I used my coffee grinder to grind up about 1/4 cup of flax seeds.  This will become my standard waffle recipe.  It made about 7-8 waffles.
