Who Needs Eggo Waffles? In about an hour, you can make yummy, healthy, home-made waffles for a fraction of the cost. Also, you will know exactly what’s in them. No soy lecithin or yellow #6 in this recipe.
A box of Eggo Waffles costs $2.50, and at 2 waffles per serving has 5 servings in it. That’s 50 cents per serving, or 25 cents per ounce.
My recipe made 20 4-inch Belgian style waffles (one is enough) for the bargain price of 16 cents per serving. These waffles weigh in at 3.5ounces per waffle making the cost per ounce just 4 cents.
Home cooking is almost always less expensive than commercially manufactured food like stuff. It usually tastes better, and is healthier tooJ Try this high fiber waffle either right out of the iron, or freeze for up to 6 months.

½ cup milled flax seed
2 tablespoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
4 egg yolks
3 ½ cups milk
¾ cup vegetable oil
4 egg whites
1. In a mixing bowl combine flours, flax seed, baking powder, and salt.
2. In another bowl combine milk, egg yolk, and vegetable oil.
3. Mix wet and dry ingredients together until just combined.
4. With an electric mixer, whip egg whites until stiff peaks form.
5. Gently fold whipped egg whites into the batter.
6. Some fluffs of egg white will remain. Do not over mix.
7. Pour batter onto the grids of a pre-heated waffle iron. Close the lid and bake according to the manufacture’s instructions.
8. Allow to cool completely before placing in zip top bags and freezing.
**a little tip; if you plan to freeze your waffles, don’t let them get too dark, the toaster will finish them.
My waffle iron makes 4-inch Belgian style waffles. These fit perfectly into a wide slotted toaster.
Enjoy your breakfast!!
