Waffle Recipe

1 3/4C Flour (sometimes I substitute different flours like sorghum for part of the flour, but today just used all purpose)

1 T sugar, 1 T baking powder, 1/2 t salt, 1/2 t fresh grated lemon zest, 1 t vanilla extract

1 1/2 C Almond milk

In a small bowl: 3 T Chia seeds and 9 T water, let set for a few minutes until it is a gel-like consistency, then add to batter

Coconut oil: I added a lot, about 10 T because I wanted them to be rich and decadent, but you could add half the amount

Whisk it all up then pour into a waffle iron. Crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside, with maple syrup and strawberries; MMMmmmmm!

And a…

    Your redbuds are gorgeous! The little purple flowers are violets and they are edible! High in C, great in salad or snacking. My little neighbors come over and we pick violets and make violet tea in the teapot and serve in tiny tea cups I keep just for our special tea time. Our violets are not out yet, but already the girls are asking for it. Great fun – I’m sure Baby will love it! (Throw a few mint leaves in for added flavor.)
