Vegan Whole Grain Oat Waffles
There is nothing like warm fluffy Belgian waffles on a weekend morning! This is something I have loved since I was a child. Since then I have come up with a whole grain oat version that has a little more fiber than the original and it happens to be vegan (egg and dairy free) as well! These are easy to make, satisfying and of course delicious! Not only that, they are inexpensive to make, and they are wonderful topped off with whatever fruit is in season and a little maple syrup. If you make a double batch, you can freeze them for later, and just pop them in the toaster when you need them!

In a small bowl, whisk together the flax seed and water, and set in the fridge for 15 minutes until the mixture is gel like.
Meanwhile, whisk together the oats, oat flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and coconut sugar in a large bowl. Whisk in the coconut milk and oil until combined, then the flax eggs (flax water mixture) until combined.
Cook according to belgian waffle iron directions (like to keep my waffles warm in a low heat oven (200F) while I cook the others).
Serve hot with fruit and maple syrup.
