My six year old has been requesting pancakes/waffles for dinner for two days in a row, so tonight I begrudingly agreed to make them. Unable to bring myself to look at the bland, heavy whole wheat mix that I usually use, I looked through my recipe books and online in search of a winner. The original recipe (which is very close to the one I'm posting below) can be found at allrecipes.com - one of my favorite sites.
1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil1/4 Cup Applesauce, unsweetened
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/4 Cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
1/4 Cup Wheat Germ
1/2 Cup Flaxseeds, whole or ground
4 tsp. baking powder
1 Tbs. Turbinado Sugar (or sweetener of choice)
1/4 tsp. sea salt
Wisk the wet ingredients (egg substitutes, milk, oil, applesauce, and vanilla) together in a bowl. Add the dry ingredients and blend together just until mixed.
Using a pastry brush, apply a thin coat of coconut oil to a hot waffle iron. Pour batter into hot waffle iron (about 1/3 Cup per waffle).
These were great with pure maple syrup (they really didn't need much) or fruit sweetened jelly.
*Sorry the pictures aren't the greatest - I wasn't originally planning to blog about them, but they ended up being SO yummy that I had to share!
