Ground Flaxseed, GF Spinach, and Savory Waffles

I had no idea how this would turn out, as I just winged it as I wanted to test out my new waffle pan but knew it had to be Gluten-free.  Furthermore, I checked my pantry and fridge, and voila, green-gold this is for sure, and a keeper in my books.

Sometimes you lose, sometimes you win, and sometimes you strike gold….. sorry I mean green gold.  Oh, my this is so delicious.


  • 4 frozen cubes of chopped spinach
  • 50ml crumbled bacon bits
  • ½ teaspoon onion flakes
  • ¼ cup flaxseed meal
  • ¼ cup Gluten-free flour blend
  • 1 tablespoon of baking soda
  • ¾ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil (regular oil will also work)
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup Almond Milk  (or any milk you prefer)

  • Firstly, thaw and then squeeze dry the spinach. You need to get out as much water as you can and add it to a bowl. Fluff or shred into loose strands.
  • Add the crumbled bacon and onion flakes.
  • Spoon over the flaxseed meal and then the GF flour and the Baking Soda.
  • Add the Cheddar and Parmesan cheese and mix lightly.
  • Whisk the eggs and milk, add the coconut oil and then the spinach, and blend together, but make sure that the spinach does not clump.
  • Prepare your waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s directions.

  • Add the mixture to your waffle iron and bake it as you would regular waffles.
  • This recipe made 2 large waffles, just over 7-inch diameter in size.
  • Please note that my waffle iron did not require any greasing but if yours does, please do so before each batch.

I am sure you will be able to adapt this and prepare it with regular flour and regular milk.  I used what I would normally use and what I had available, but am glad I did it my way!!!!
