These waffles are reminiscent of the breakfast cereal, and remind me of the bran muffins my mother used to bring us for an occasional morning treat. They are less sweet than you might expect, with very little added sugar.
The eggless texture is intensely crisp and airy light.
2 1/2 cups flour (all-purpose or wholegrain, or a combination)
1 cup wheat bran
2 TBS baking powder
2 TBS brown sugar
1 tsp salt
6 tsp flax meal
Combine all dry ingredients. Mix well.
To dry mixture, add:
3 3/4 cups water
1 cup olive or coconut oil
Stir till just combined. Batter will be lumpy. Do not overmix; your waffles will be hard :(
Fold in 1 cup of raisins.
Cook in a waffle iron. Serve warm with your choice of toppings, or allow to cool on a rack or tray, transfer to a freezer bag, and freeze.
Makes approximately 20 waffles.
