Total time
Recipe type: Lunch/Dinner
Phase: 2
Serves: 4 servings
For the waffles:
  • 1½ cup pancake mix
  • 2 tbsp flax seeds
  • 1 cup plant-based milk
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup diced apples
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 pinch salt
For the vanilla syrup:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup plant-based milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
To make the waffles:
  1. If your waffle iron has a temperature setting, set it to medium or medium-low.
  2. In the food processor or blender, grind the flax seeds finely.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flax and milk and allow them to rest for a couple of minutes before adding the pancake mix, oil, apples, cinnamon, and salt.
  4. Combine all of the ingredients well.
  5. Cook the waffles for three to six minutes each, depending on your waffle iron, until they are golden brown.
To make the syrup:
  1. Combine the sugar, milk, and vanilla in a medium sized saucepan and bring to a gentle boil over medium high heat. Allow the syrup to simmer for five minutes before serving hot over waffles or pancakes.
  2. Extra syrup can be stored, covered, in the refrigerator.
