Tina’s “Rad” Waffles – a must try recipe!

Tina is a very lovely girl, that I used to work with!  She is beautiful, sweet, wonderful and makes the CUTEST babies ever!  And she reads my blog, which makes me love her that much more! :)  hehe

Here is a picture of us when I went back up to the Okanagan this summer for a visit! 

She sent me the recipe “Tina’s Rad Waffles” and told me I must try.

So today, the day I should be madly studying for my Psychology exam – I decided that making waffles (one of mornings longest breakfast foods) was a great idea!

the babies were insanely good


Tina’s “Rad” Waffles - if you are doing Weight Watchers they are 4 points each! 
I made a few tweaks just because I didn’t have the stuff on hand today… and well I’m in my PJ’s with no intention of leaving, so deal with it ;)  hehe












  • Here's the original recipe, but I made some changes....
    2 eggs, beaten
    1 3/4 cups almond milk
    1/4 cup canola oil I used 1/2 a 1/4 cup… what is that!?
    1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce and a wee bit more to make up for the other 1/2 a 1/4 cup of oil
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract – used cinnamon because I was out of vanilla *tear
    1 cup whole wheat flour
    1/2 cup flax seed meal – flax and I are not friends, so I used Cha cha cha chia seeds instead
    1/4 cup wheat germ
    1/4 cup all-purpose coconut flour
    4 teaspoons baking powder
    1 tablespoon agave
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    Plus I added about 4 TBSP Maca powder – just for fun!

    Tina – don’t hate me for having NO ingredients in the house! These really were amazing!
    Mix it all together… Spray your waffle maker – and ….
    GO!

    Waffle making extravaganza it is….

    Steam and Buddha…. wooooooooooo awhhhhhhhhhhhh

    It made 9 glorious, nutty(chia seedy), delicious waffles!
    Better than any restaurant waffles I’ve had!

    For the topping I melted 1 tsp of coconut oil and mixed with almond butter… drizzle  and then 1 tbsp syrup and strawberries!

    Wowsers, these were awesome!  (and guess what?  The coconut flour is SUPER high in protein, so I’m sure these will keep me full for awhile)


    And Tina said they freeze well too.

    Thanks for the awesome recipe Tina, keep them coming!!
    and thanks for reading my blog… it means a lot!!

    Now what to make with delicious waffles… delicious fresh juice of course!

    Kale, 1 apple, 1 orange, 1/4 beet, 2 carrots and 3 key limes(skin on) wow… those key limes give it a great punch!

    This lovely twitter lady gave me the idea to use key limes, and I'm glad she did!!  http://twitter.com/SaywardBC… ps she’s awesome to follow, she has all the details on basically every giveaway out there!

    Ok… I’m off, if you see me on facebook, twitter, email or anything of the sort, between now and 12… don’t talk to me…
     
    Ignore me completely or you will be to blame for my big fat F in Psychology!  hehe

    Ciao… ps… pass this recipe on, because it’s really fantastic!
