Wheat-free Vegan Blueberry Waffles

Another favorite lately has been these waffles ... perfect for a lazy Sunday morning with a little vegan butter and maple syrup or agave nectar drizzled on top ... maybe some Light Life veggie sausage ... yum! My wonderful husband has been making these for me while I lay on the couch reading baby books, he is so good to me :)

You can easily cut this recipe in half, but I recommend making the whole thing and freezing the leftovers for easy breakfast option during the week!

Wheat-free Vegan Blueberry Waffles - makes about 12-14 waffles
2 1/2 c. spelt flour (you can use any other flour you'd like)
4 tbs. date sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. sea salt
4 tbs. golden flax seed, ground
2 2/3 c. hemp milk
1/3 c. sunflower or grapeseed oil
1 c. blueberries, or other berry

Preheat your waffle iron.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and sea salt.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the hemp milk, oil, and ground flax seed. Add the liquid mixture to the dry and toss in the blueberries.

Using a spatula or wooden spoon, mix the ingredients until just moistened. Let the batter sit for 5 minutes to let the flax seed absorb some liquid.

Brush the waffle iron with oil using a pastry brush, or use an oil mister (no non-stick spray like Pam, please!!!!!). I use about 1/4 c. batter for each waffle square.

Cook according to your waffle iron's instructions, usually when the little light goes off, they're done!!
