Original version of the flax waffle
A few days ago, I wrote a post about the benefits of flax and put up a recipe for a Blueberry Flax Microwave Muffin, which by the way I still think is super delicious. ^_^ Today, I give you more breakfast food made with flax! Why not start the day off right, right? Tee hee. These amazeballs waffles come out just the way I like them, nice and crispy on the outside and soft on the inside (nom nom nom nom nom).

Upsides of using flaxmeal instead of flour means that the waffle is actually low carb and packed of omega-3s! AND not only low in carb and high in protein (because of the protein powder), but if you have a carb-free (and therefore, sugar free) protein powder and liquid stevia like me, then it's completely sugar free as well!! Although, even if you don't have a carbless protein powder or liquid stevia, this waffle is still really low in sugar, so all is not lost.

Anywho, the original version of the recipe (as pictured to the right) was just a cinnamon waffle. Tasted great, but then I started wanting something more desserty for breakfast and so the chocolate version was born! Try them both out and see what you think!
