Whisk the dry ingredients -- the flour, wheat germ, baking powder, baking soda, and the salt-- in a bowl.
Whisk together the wet ingredients-- the nondairy milk, maple syrup, oil, and flaxmeal.
Make a well in the center of the flour and pour in the wet ingredients. Mix until the batter is evenly wet, but don't try to whisk out any lumps. Overmixing batter promotes the development of gluten which can give you a chewy waffle-- not what you want.
Bake in a waffle iron according to instructions. If you follow the directions for a crispier waffle, the waffle will take a longer time to cook.
