Flax Seed Waffles

June 4, 2016 Recipes  No comments

Since changing to a grain-free diet, I have been trying different types of waffles, both sweet and savory with marginal results.  I finally found these which are very satisfying.  I would say that they even have a better flavor than typical wheat waffles.  The whipped eggs and baking powder combine to give the some lift.
