1 tbsp Flaxseed meal (ground) (flax egg, see "Notes" below)
1 cup Coconut flour
1/4 cup Rolled oats- Gluten Free
2 1/2 tsp Baking powder
1 cup Almond milk, unsweetened (any kind of non-dairy milk)
2 1/2 tbsp Water (flax egg, see "Notes" below)
1/4 tsp Sea salt
2 large Banana (s) (ripe)
1/4 cup Dark chocolate chips, vegan


  1. Preheat waffle iron.
  2. Once iron is ready, spray generously with cooking spray (this is key for the batter not to stick) and pour 1/2 cup batter on the iron.
  3. Close iron and wait approx. 3 min.
  4. Remove waffle and continue to cook rest of the batter.
  5. To serve, top with just a few more chocolate chips, or almond butter or maple syrup would also be lovely additions.

Advanced Preparation

1 - 2 days prior [optional], Flaxseed meal (ground) 1 tbsp

To prepare flax egg, combine flaxseed and water in a small bowl, stir. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

1 - 2 days prior [optional], Coconut flour 1 cup

To make the batter: Peel and mash banana and baking powder together with a fork. Add in milk, flax egg and stir. Next add salt, oats and stir. And then add flour and stir until just combined. Add in chocolate chips. Store in an air tight container in the fridge.


To make a flax egg: 

Add 1 tbsp flaxseed meal and 2 1/2 tbsp water to a dish and stir.

Let rest for 5 minutes to thicken. Add to recipes in place of 1 egg.

It's not an exact 1:1 substitution in every recipe because it doesn't bind and stiffen during baking quite like an egg does.

But I've found it to work incredibly well in pancakes, quick breads, brownies, muffins, cookies, and many other recipes.

Spray cooking spray generously on the waffle iron as these are more apt to stick than a normal batter.
