Vegan Wholegrain Waffles with Flax and Wheat Germ
These waffles are packed with good health from wheat germ, flax meal and tofu and they're divine served with a drizzle of maple syrup.
Servings: 8 waffles
- 1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
- ¼ cup wheat germ , toasted lightly
- ¼ cup flaxmeal
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 8 oz silken tofu
- 1 cup nondairy milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
Whisk the tofu with the nondairy milk or blend until smooth.
Place dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk. Add the tofu-milk mixture and remaining wet ingredients and mix gently with a spatula. A few lumps are fine.
If the mixture is too dry, add some more milk so you have a thick but spreadable batter.
Heat a waffle iron and bake waffles according to instructions. My waffle-maker takes about ¼ cup of batter for each waffle.
