Whole Grain Blender Waffles

Here we are on day #3. Today we are going to talk about waffles. Who doesn't love waffles? Especially when they are healthy and filling. This recipe is not my own, but it is our favorite waffle recipe, so I wanted to share it with you. I love that it uses whole grains and has the added bonus of flax seeds and cashews.

These are excellent topped with pure maple syrup, fresh or frozen (just thaw first) berries, fresh peaches or a sprinkle of powdered sugar (which my kids prefer).

This recipe requires a high-powered blender. If you do not have one, you could try soaking your cashews and dates for a couple hours to soften them. If you do go that route, I would soak the dates in the 2 cups of water and then add all of it to your blender as the dates will have a tendency to disintegrate in the water.
Ingredients all prepped in the blender

Whole Grain Blender Waffles

2 cups water

1/4 -1/3 cup chopped dates (or 1 Tbsp. apple juice concentrate)

1 cup instant oats

1/4 cup millet (or cornmeal)

1/4 cup whole flax seed

1/4 cup raw cashew nuts

1 Tbsp cornstarch

1/2 tsp salt

Berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, etc...)
Sliced fresh peaches
Pure Maple syrup (Grade B - or A if you can't afford B)

Preheat waffle iron and spray with non-stick spray. Blend all ingredients for 1 minute or until smooth in a high-powered blender. In my blendtec, I usually use the sauce/batter button and run it 2-3 times through the cycle.

Pour mixture into preheated and sprayed waffle iron and close lid. Bake until steam stops rising and the waffle is golden brown and crisp.  Serve immediately with desired toppings.

The waffles can be refrigerated and reheated in a toaster for up to 3 days.
