Hemp and Flaxseed Oat Waffles

I don’t normally make healthy food and pretend like it tastes just as good as the regular version. I like to live by the “eat whatever you want in moderation”. But since we had a plethora of seeds (chia, flax, hemp, sunflower, sesame, etc.) in the house, I decided to replace half the flour with a higher fiber substance…and half the oil with a lower fat alternative also known as applesauce. I used sweetened vanilla almond milk but that’s just a personal preference.

And guess what? These waffles are still delicious and fluffy but with tons of protein, fiber, and omega 3 & 6 fatty acids.

Topped it with raspberries and dark chocolate and my mouth didn’t even mind the fact that we ran out of maple syrup/honey. This recipe made 6 waffles (yes I know there are only 5 in the picture but I got hungry while taking pictures).

Recipe: Makes 6 waffles

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup flax seed
  • 1/4 cup hemp seed
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cup almond milk (or regular/soy)

  1. Preheat waffle iron.
  2. In a food processor, blend together flour, oats, flax, hemp, sugar, and baking powder until all of it resembles flour.
  3. With a spatula, mix in the rest of the ingredients until everything is incorporated.
  4. Pour the mixture into the iron (I like using a soup ladle) and cook until golden brown.
  5. If there are any leftovers, wait until it’s cool and stick it in the freezer to retoast later!
