I got another new toy! It's from the same company as the Farm Animal Silver Dollar Pancake Pan - it's a Silver Dollar Waffle Pan! Oh, how I can't resist mini things!
And what better to do with english muffin sized waffles than to make a sandwich?
I made mine with two mini waffles, lightly brushed with maple syrup on the sides facing the interior of the sandwich, with a thin slice of apple and a small dab of peanut butter.
Here's my recipe for the waffles. You could make standard sized waffles with this recipe, or you could pick the pan up and make a totally bento-worthy treat!
I used some beveri flax seed that I got to sample - and I will write up a proper review soon! I used the fine milled flax with mixed berries. Mmm! I also threw in some King Arthur Flour Cinnamon Flav-R-Bites. Totally optional, but oh so yummy!!! Just little bursts of cinnamon flavor. Again... mmmm!
Whole Wheat and Flax Seed Mini Waffles
1/2 c whole wheat flour
1/2 c all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 c buttermilk (I used skim milk mixed with about a tablespoon of vinegar)
1 Tbsp oil
2 Tbsp flax meal (plain, or with mixed berries)
1/4 c cinnamon flav-r-bites (optional - you could also just throw in a dash of cinnamon)
Preheat silver dollar waffle pan over medium heat, and melt a tiny bit of butter in each waffle indentation. Brush the butter evenly over the surface of the waffle griddle, to make sure the waffles don't stick.
In a medium bowl, mix dry ingredients together. Stir in the wet ingredients, and whisk until blended.
Scoop about 2 Tbsp into each cavity in the silver dollar waffle pan, and cook until small bubbles form on top. Flip carefully with a chopstick or a wooden skewer, and press each mini waffle down with a spatula lightly, to form indentations on the second side. Continue cooking until golden brown.
