I have a smoothie for breakfast every day during the week, but on the weekends I like to spice things up a bit and eat yummy things like breakfast sandwiches or strawberry waffles. Waffles are really easy to whip together and they make the house smell delicious first thing in the morning.
2 cups fresh strawberries (sliced)
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup buckwheat flour
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups almond milk (add additional milk if it is too dry while mixing together)
3 tablespoons “I can’t believe it’s not butter”, melted
1/2 cup liquid egg whites
Combine flours, flaxseed, and all dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
Combine milk, butter, and egg whites, stirring with a whisk.
Add milk mixture to flour mixture, stirring until blended.
Preheat a waffle iron.
Coat iron with cooking spray.
Spoon about 1/4 cup batter per 4-inch waffle onto hot waffle iron, spreading batter to edges.
Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown.
Top with fresh cut strawberries.
