"These waffles are a little bit crunchy and super filling, with ingredients proven to regulate blood sugar. The chia seeds and flax add extra fiber and Omega-3 to your diet. My kids love these waffles with chocolate chips!"

  • Ready In

  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.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I made this exactly as written and they turned out perfectly. They are slightly crunchy and have a delicious nutty flavor from the different grains. I have a standard waffle maker and this made ...

My husband and I loved them. Kids will eat again, but of course prefer my much-less-nutrition regular waffle recipe. The only thing I didn't do per recipe was I had to use oil because I didn...

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!

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...

Perfect waffles. I made them the size of a typical toaster waffle, using my ice cream scoop to measure out, and I got 14 of them. I have a traditional waffle iron. Love the ingredient list, used...

I made this substituting mashed banana for the applesauce. I loved it and I'll use applesauce next time, and maybe peaches after that.

Just made these today and they were a huge hit! The husband, 6 year old, 2 year old and I loved them. Only change was swapping out 1/4 cup of flour with one scoop protein powder. Used my griddle...

I added a tablespoon of hemp hearts, a giant scoop of protein powder and a few chocolate chips for the kids. Two thumbs up from this family!
