Superfood Waffles

How do you take a plain boring waffle and transforms it into a rich, flavorful nutrient dense version of itself that the whole family will love? Simple! Just add seeds…and raw chocolate powder!! The texture,  body, and additional omega 3 rich nutrients that superfood seeds such as chia and flax add to the batter will make you want to triple this recipe and freeze them up for future servings- they won’t last long I can guarantee. And adding raw chocolate was a no brainer. High in anti oxidants and flavor- winning combo!

 I tested this recipe with 1st and 2nd graders at the Eliot School in the North End and we did not have a drop of batter left in our mixing bowl! Since we made them around the holidays, we made them extra festive by adding crushed candy canes as a topping, on a dollop of fresh whipped cream. YUM!!

  1. 1 cup arrowhead mills sprouted grain pancake mix
  2. 1 egg
  3. 1 tablespoon raw chocolate powder
  4. 1 tablespoon white chia seed
  5. 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
  6. 1 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil
  7. 1 cup milk (coconut, almond or whole milk all work) or you may substitute water
  1. Ensure waffle maker is preheated and greased (coconut oil works well).
  2. Measure and mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a separate smaller bowl, add melted coconut oil to other wet ingredients.
  3. Mix well with a whisk, ensuring egg is well beaten. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until well incorporated.
  4. Pour batter into waffle iron by 1/2 cupfuls and use according to manufacturer's instructions.
  5. Serve with fresh fruit, maple syrup and whipped cream
  1. The addition of chia seeds can sometimes make a batter thick (depending on how long the seeds are left to soak in it. ) If the batter is too thick to pour into the waffle maker just add a tablespoon or so of milk or water.
