Recipe: Whole Wheat and Flax Seed Mini Waffles

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 egg
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.

Pin It!
