Super Seed Toaster Waffles

We know there isn’t always time to make a breakfast that the whole family will like. These healthy waffles are an easy make-ahead recipe that can be frozen and quickly toasted when needed – YUM!

These little waffles are loaded with healthy fats and fibre from the seeds. Have 7.5 grams* of protein each! And are sweetened with apples (no refined sugars here!). Most importantly, they have vegetables in them and in our books getting vegetables at breakfast is a parenting win.

Makes 16 waffles (based on ⅓ heaping cup of batter per waffle)


  • 2 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder

  1. Preheat waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions. 
  2. In a large bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, salt, and seeds. Set aside.

Recipe Notes

To make this recipe gluten-free, replace 2 cups all-purpose flour with 2 cups of gluten-free all-purpose flour that includes xanthan gum or 1:1 gluten-free flour. 

To make recipe plant-based, replace 1 cup milk with 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy alternative. Remove eggs from the recipe – without eggs, the waffles will be slightly less fluffy and crisp.
