Hemp & Flax seed Banana Waffles

Can you believe another school year is here?! My oldest is finally venturing into the world of preschool and our schedules are beyond chaotic. With gymnastics, golf, horseback riding, and soccer for extracurricular activities, we don't have much time worrying about what to eat. I resort to scheduling every meal at the start of the week and try to prep as much as possible so when it is time to cook, I can do it quickly and not resort to just ordering pizza. This includes breakfasts too.  Today's recipe is a favorite here and is asked for at least 3 times a week. When you find a healthy meal kids like you go with it!

Hemp & Flax Seed Banana Waffles
Makes 12-16

2 cups flour ( we use 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1 cup kumut/almond/flax meal)
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp flax seed
2 tbsp hemp seed 

2 ultra ripe bananas smashed
1.5 cups almond or coconut milk -warm
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs (to make vegan you can use chia seed mixture)

1. Heat up waffle maker
2. Mix wet ingredients well
3. Add dry on to and slowly mix them together
4. Wipe down waffle iron with extra coconut oil so waffles done stick.
5. Place mixture in waffle iron and cook.  Mine takes 3-4.5 minutes 

We enjoy ours with a little butter, homemade peach jam, fresh berries smashed up, and if its a special day, a little whip cream.

To save for later, we package up 4 waffle squares in a bag with a piece of parchment in between so they don't stick. When needed we take out one package and the night before and place in fridge or if we forget, microwave for 10 seconds, and then place in toaster oven to heat up and crisp up (because that's how I like it). Yum!!!
