Whole Grain Flaxseed Waffles

These whole grain flaxseed waffles make for a delicious and healthy start to your day. If your mornings tend to be busy and on the go – we suggest making a large batch and freezing the extras to reheat later.

Smooth, whole-milled flaxseed stands in for part of the flour in this recipe. We love serving them topped with nut butter or this strawberry flax spread

Cuisine American
Servings 4


  • ¾ cup whole wheat pastry flour or white whole wheat flour
  • ¼ cup Manitoba Milling Co Smooth Whole Milled Flaxseed
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • ½ Tbsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp kosher sea salt
  • 1 cup beverage of choice
  • ¼ cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 egg separated


  • Preheat waffle iron.
  • Mix dry ingredients (flour through salt) in a medium bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, mix beverage, oil, and egg yolk and set aside. Whisk egg white in a small dish until light and frothy.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry (keeping egg white separate) and mix until batter is smooth. Gently fold in egg white and stir until well combined.
  • Grease waffle iron with oil or cooking spray. Add ½ cup batter per waffle, cooking until brown and crispy. Serve immediately.


  • For this recipe we used an 8 ½ “ classic round waffle maker (not Belgian). If you’re using a different shape/size, cook time and the amount of batter used may vary.
  • We recommend cooking the batter immediately instead of letting it rest as some waffle recipes will call for.
