Waffles are a breakfast treat we usually don't think of as being all that healthy, but the addition of ground flaxseed ups the fiber, protein, and omega-3s, as well as important nutrients like B vitamins, calcium, and iron. To send any remaining waffle-related guilt packing, dish these babies up with nutritious toppings like yogurt and berries or unsweetened applesauce.
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup white flour
  • 4 Tbsp. sugar
  • 6 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 4 Tbsp. ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 cups skim milk
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
Preheat waffle iron. Mix flours, sugar, baking powder, flaxseed, and salt in one bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix eggs, milk, and oil, ,then add wet ingredients to dry and whisk until smooth. Pour about 3/4 cup of batter into waffle iron for each waffle. Waffles will steam while cooking; cook until they've almost stopped steaming. Makes about 11 1-waffle servings; any extras can be frozen and reheated in toaster or toaster oven.
