Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups - whole Wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup - Wheat germ (use bran for a variation)
  • 2 tsp - baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp - baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp - salt
  • 1.5 cups - non-dairy Milk, like soy or almond. Mix it with 1 tsp Vinegar and let it stand for a couple of minutes so that it curdles. (If you want softer, less crispy waffles, reduce the non-dairy Milk by 1/4 cup)
  • 1/3 cup - pure maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp - canola or other vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp - flax meal (powdered flax seeds) mixed with 6 tbsp water

How to Make

  • Whisk the dry ingredients - the flour, wheat germ, baking powder, baking soda, and the salt - in a bowl.
  • Whisk together the wet ingredients - the non-dairy milk, maple syrup, oil, and flax meal.
  • Make a well in the centre of the flour and pour in the wet ingredients. Mix until the batter is evenly wet, but don't try to whisk out any lumps.
  • Overmixing batter promotes the development of gluten which can give you a chewy waffle - not what you want.
  • Bake in a waffle iron according to instructions.
  • If you follow the directions for a crispier waffle, the waffle will take a longer time to cook.
  • Serve hot.
