  • 2 tablespoon flax seeds whole flax seeds or ground both work fine here
  • 4 tablespoon warm water
  • 1 cup whole grain flour whole wheat, spelt, and rye flour are great
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup mashed banana approx 2 brown bananas
  • ⅓ cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 cup oat milk or plant-based milk of choice
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • coconut oil for the waffle iron


  • Combine ground flax and warm water in a small bowl, and let it sit for about 10 minutes to form a gel.
  • Turn on your waffle iron to heat up.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together mashed banana, melted coconut oil, sugar, almond milk, vanilla extract. Add the flax mixture, and mix well.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Mix well. 
  • Brush your waffle iron with a bit of coconut oil on the top and bottom. Spoon about ¼ cup of waffle batter into each square – this will vary depending on the size of your waffle iron.
  • Close, and cook until your waffle iron indicates the waffles are done – just a couple of minutes each.
  • Remove waffles from the iron and onto a wire wrack to cool.
  • Repeat with remaining batter.
  • Once waffles are cool, place them in a plastic freezer bag separated by squares of parchment or freezer paper.
  • To reheat, simply pop your waffles into the toaster for a couple of minutes.
  • Serve with sliced banana, maple syrup, and cocoa nibs if you like.


  • Nutrition values are an estimate only, and will vary depending on the size of your waffles.
