Vegan Banana Flax Waffles

Made with wholesome ingredients, these healthy, high fiber waffles are easy to prepare and always turn out crispy  on the outside and fluffy on the inside, with just the right hint of sweetness.  I make these waffles in batches and freeze them for a quick breakfast option for my sometimes impatient toddler… Just pop them in the toaster, and they come out as fresh as the day they were made!

Serves:  4 large waffles
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time:  5-6  mins per waffle

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cup non-dairy yogurt (such as almond, coconut, or soy)
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 spotty banana
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 whole grain flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup flax seeds
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt

Steps:

  1. In a high powered blender, combine the yogurt, coconut oil, banana, and maple syrup.
  2. Blend at high speed until perfectly smooth
  3. Add to the blended wet ingredients the rolled oats, baking powder, flax seeds, cinnamon, and sea salt.  Blend until well combined.
  4. Add to the batter the remaining whole grain flour, 1/2 cup at a time, blending thoroughly before adding more, as to not overload your blender.
  5. Blend the batter well, it will be quite thick in consistency
  6. Let the batter sit while you heat your waffle iron to medium-high
  7. Spray or brush your waffle iron with a bit of coconut oil
  8. Portion the batter out onto the waffle iron (be sure to not place too much as this WILL expand during the cooking phase.
  9. Cook each waffle 5-6 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy on the outside
  10. Serve with fresh fruit and maple syrup, Enjoy!
