Healthy Multigrain Chia Waffles


This multigrain waffle recipe is 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!

  • cooking spray

  • 1 ¾ cups almond milk

  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 ¼ cups whole wheat flour

  • ½ cup rolled oats

  • ¼ cup flax seed meal

  • 4 teaspoons baking powder

  • 2 teaspoons white sugar, or more to taste

  • ¼ teaspoon salt (Optional)


  1. Preheat a waffle iron according to the 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 mixture, about 2 minutes.

  3. Whisk flour, oats, flax seed meal, baking powder, sugar, and salt into almond milk mixture until batter is smooth.

  4. 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 individually frozen waffles in a toaster oven for 5 minutes.

Before serving, place cooked waffles on paper towels to avoid sogginess.
