  1. Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions; spray the inside with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk almond milk, applesauce, egg, chia seeds, and vanilla extract together in a bowl; let sit until chia seeds start to thicken the mixture, about 2 minutes. Whisk flour, oats, flax seed meal, baking powder, sugar, and salt into almond milk mixture until batter is smooth.
  3. Scoop 1/2 cup batter into the preheated waffle iron and cook until crisp and golden, about 5 minutes per waffle. Repeat with remaining batter.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • These waffles freeze beautifully. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Flash-freeze the waffles for 30 minutes. Place frozen waffles in a freezer bag. Toast individual frozen waffles in a toaster oven for 5 minutes.
  • Before serving, place cooked waffles on paper towels to avoid sogginess.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Yes, I will make these again! Healthy and tasty is a win! I did grind up the oats in my food processor first to a flour or meal consistency only because one child will not eat anything with visi...

The best waffle, I make 14 out of them, 1/4 cup each, great heated up in toaster.

These were yummy! A few revisions I made- I used banana in place of applesauce since that's what I had, part coconut milk, unsweetened shredded coconut, and some cinnamon and nutmeg. Was delish!

Yum! I found it did not need the extra sugar. Very tasty and filling.

These are nutty and delicious. Thank you for this wonderful recipe. I eat mine with some yogurt. Really great.

These were great. I didn't have applesauce, so I used part butter and part oil, but less qty than the amt of applesauce called for. I also used part white and part wheat flour for my personal pr...
