I’m always looking for clever ways to add fiber to my families diet, particularly since the ladies in this house have digestive issues.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF FIBER ?
- Fiber helps regulate bowel movement – Anyone else have kids with constipation?
- Fiber makes you feel fuller for longer periods of time
- Fiber may help reduce the risk of heart disease and obesity.
Pancakes and waffles are a great place to squeeze in some much needed fiber, especially if you have picky eaters.
The below fiber waffles recipe has a nutty, delicious taste. I’ve made this version with chocolate chips inside the batter, which is how my biggest baby – my husband – prefers to eat it.
HIGH FIBER WAFFLES RECIPE
- 4 GG Scandinavian Fiber Crispbread Original Crackers, crushed to powder
- 2 tsp coconut sugar (or sugar of your choice)
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup almond milk ( I use nutiva )
- 1 cup almond flour ( I use Bob’s Red Mill)
- 3 tsp butter
- 1 tsp chia seeds of flax seeds for added fiber boost
Yields 2 waffles.
- Pulse GG crackers in blender, until you get a powder.
- Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl – crackers, coconut sugar, flour.
- Melt 2 tsp of butter. In a separate bowl, whisk butter, vanilla, and egg.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix until well combined. Add in chia or flax seeds, now, if desired.
- Heat waffle maker and grease with 1 tsp of butter. Spoon batter onto hot waffle iron. Cook until golden, approximately 4-6 minutes. (I find that almond flour takes a bit longer to cook golden, as compared to all-purpose flour.
- Serve with fresh berries, for even more fiber power.
