Oatmeal and Flax Seed Waffles

Made these super fibrous and tasty waffles yesterday morning and wanted to share the recipe with you guys. Made this eggless batter which literally takes under 5 minutes to make and added the mix to my waffle maker and lo behold, got these beauties ready in 10 minutes or so.

This is how I made them healthier:

  1. Added oatmeal and flax seeds to boost its nutritional value and the flavor as well.
  2. Replaced regular sugar with brown sugar. You could add maple syrup as well.
  3. Replaced usual milk with cow’s milk which is lower in fat and healthier
  4. Added whole wheat instead of all purpose flour

Let me know how do you like yours?

PREPARATION TIME: 5 minutes
COOKING TIME: 10- 12 minutes
SERVINGS: 6
DIFFICULTY SCALE: Medium

INGREDIENTS: 

  1. Oatmeal – ½ cup
  2. Whole wheat flour – ½ cup
  3. Flax seeds – 3 tablespoons
  4. Cow’s milk – ½ cup
  5. Baking powder – 1 teaspoon
  6. Baking soda – 1 ½ teaspoon
  7. Brown sugar – 1/3 cup
  8. Cinnamon powder – 1 tablespoon
  9. Vanilla essence – 5 drops
  10. Salt – a pinch
  11. Strawberries – 2
  12. Fresh cream – 2 tablespoons
  13. Chocolate sauce – 2 tablespoons

RECIPE:

  1. Grind oatmeal till it reaches a roughly broken consistency. Don’t over grind into a powder.
  2. Toast flax seeds in a hot pan for about a minute and roughly grind them in a mortar and pestle or keep them on a level surface and run a rolling pin over.
  3. In a bowl, add the oatmeal and flax seed mix.
  4. Add whole purpose flour, cinnamon powder, baking powder and baking soda and salt and mix well.
  5. Add brown sugar, milk and vanilla essence and mix well. The batter is ready and is slightly thicker than the pancake mix.
  6. Take a waffle maker and oil its insides properly. Pour small amounts of batter into the moulds of the waffle maker and let them cook.
  7. Read the instructions on your waffle maker to ensure proper cooking. Mine read, heating it till the steam stops coming out and I did the same and got perfect crispy brown waffles.
  8. Add fresh cream, chocolate sauce and fresh strawberries on top and eat fresh.
