World’s Best Waffles!! A Healthy Breakfast Recipe!

Posted on

In an effort to eat healthy and have a good breakfast or an amazing dessert I often cook these waffles up in double or triple batches and then just reheat and serve with yogurt, berries and little real maple syrup.  This recipe is inspired by a recipe from the Cooking Light Complete Cookbook.  I have varied the recipe slightly and made it gluten-free.  I hope you try this recipe as it is amazing.


Michele’s Gluten-free Waffles

Dry Ingredients:

1/4 cup flaxseed meal

1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour mix

1 tsp Xanthan gum

1/4 cup hemp seeds

3 Tbsp chia seeds

2 Tbsp sugar

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

Wet Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups fat-free or low-fat milk

1/4 yogurt

3 eggs

1 1/2 Tbsp canola oil or melted butter (I use butter for the flavour)

1 tsp vanilla extract

Mix all dry ingredients together with a whisk to break up lumps, set aside.


Combine all wet ingredients in a bowl and whisk well, pour into dry ingredients and mix until just combined.


Preheat waffle iron.  Coat it with cooking spray and spoon 1/4 cup of batter onto hot waffle iron, spreading batter to edges.  Cook 5 to 6 minutes until steaming stops.  Adjust cooking time to the specifications of your waffle iron.

Serve with yogurt, fresh fruit and berries and a little real maple syrup.


These waffles freeze extremely well for future breakfasts or keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.  Enjoy.  Cheers, Michele

    These look delicious! I love having fruit for breakfast. Blueberries are my favourite.

      These are terrific as a dessert waffle too with ice cream or whipped cream and fruit. They freeze so well that I can have them when ever I want. I just pick a day when I am busy making other meals for future use and make up a triple batch. I can be stirring a soup one minute and flipping out another waffle the next. Makes my time management more efficient. I hope you try them out and let me know how they were. Cheers, Michele
