I had a hankering for waffles this morning. It got me thinking, how could I make some waffles that won’t A. make me feel sick afterwards B. are healthy(ish) C. taste good!
I started with this recipe from Mavis. (she feeds a family of 4 on $100 a month! and she has some pretty tasty recipes too) I’ve made this recipe before and its tasty, here is my adaptations to help nourish the lung/large intestine system for fall.
What you need:
2 cups quick oats (lungs/large intestine system)
3 tablespoons ground flax seed
1/4 cup flour
1 beaten egg (lung/large intestine system)
1 tablespoon local honey (lung/large intestine system)
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 tablespoon coconut oil
1/2 cup water
1 cup almond milk (lung/large intestine system) I used store bought but almond milk is super easy to make yourself
In a large bowl, soak oats in milk or water for 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and mix until there are no lumps. Then follow your usual waffle making instructions.
We like to add raw almond butter (almonds are great for the lungs) on top of our waffles with a little honey or homemade blueberry lemon syrup.
This is a great base recipe. Next time I will add some cinnamon, apples and walnuts. Cooked fruit is the best way to get fruit in your diet as the weather becomes colder.
p.s. if you are nursing this is a great recipe for supporting a healthy supply (oatmeal and flax seed are galactogogues)
p.s.s. We eat on small plates so visually it looks like we are eating a lot of food. It helps us feel full on less food. sneaky sneaky 🙂
p.s.s.s this recipes has lots of fiber so you might enjoy an extra trip to the bathroom!
