Flaxseed Waffles Recipe - #dairyfree #eggfree

I love waffes! They are fun and easy to make and on the weekends darling daughter and I often eat waffles! I do try to mix up my recipes here and there just so they do not get boring. We often return to our #dairyfree Blueberry Waffles and love it when I can make Cranberry Sauce Waffles. Yes, I have even made cranberry sauce for dinner just so I can have leftovers to make the waffles with!

This past weekend I ran into a hiccup I have encountered before. I was about to start my waffles, darling daughter was excited, and I had no eggs. I could not tell her those lovely waffles she was craving, "plain this time mom!", weren't going to happen. So I made my egg free version. The 1 tablespoon spoon of ground flaxseed and 3 tablespoons of water makes a wonderful egg substitute in this case. I do notice the waffles are denser and darling daughter spotted the flecks of flaxseed. I assured her it was not berries, it was a plain recipe, and she devoured them up. Berries on the side of course! She loves a hint of maple syrup on her waffles and berries on the side. I pile my banana slices and berries on top and yes, I do a hint of syrup too. Dear hubby, he has started loving waffles just as much but he will go for a pool of syrup. We are all so different!

Trust me, making waffles are easy! Just get yourself a waffle iron and start mixing! There is no need to buy pre-made batters. Make it from scratch and have fun with it!

1 Tbl ground flaxseed
3 Tbl water
1 cup flour
1/4 cup oil
1 cup almond milk 
2 tsp baking powder (please note: some baking powders can me made on equipment that may contribute to milk contamination)
4 tsp brown sugar (optional)

Really easy. I plug in my waffle iron and do a quick squirt with oil to prevent sticking. I measure out the ground flaxseed and water and let it rest in the bowl while I gather my remaining ingredients. I add the remaining ingredients into my mixing bowl and mix. By the time I am done measuring and mixing the waffle iron is hot and ready. I then put about 3/4 cup of batter onto the iron for each waffle.

Servings: Makes about 2 waffles depending on your waffle iron size and how big you make your waffles.

Daily Gratitude: I am thankful for waffle irons!
Daily Affirmation: The only one putting limits on me is myself so I will stop limiting myself!


  1. I AM ALL OVER anything DAIRY & GRAIN FREE! :) (I would use coconut flour)... I really want to get myself a waffle iron, I have SOOO MANY IDEAS! Uhhhhh BED BATH AND BEYOND trip for me today?

    1. I would love to see your adjustments for coconut flour!

    2. Hey! Honestly, in this situation, I would just use a cup of coconut flour and then increase the liquid (with water or more almond milk) as coconut flour tends to absorb more liquid than regular flour!

    3. Sweet! I will give it a try this weekend. :)

  2. Perfect! Waffles are so fun! My iorn in ancient but always works! It makes two mediumish pancakes at once which is perfect for my single serve recipes!
