Whole Wheat and Chia Seed Waffles with Fresh Berries and Bacon
- 1.5 cups of whole wheat flour
- 1/3 cup chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 tea spoon salt
- 2 cups milk
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 2 eggs
- fresh berries
Place the plain flour, chia seeds, baking powder and salt into a bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl whisk together eggs, milk and melted butter. Gradually whisk in to dry ingredients. Set batter aside and allow to rest for 30 minutes to 2 hours.
Heat a waffle iron or skillet and brush with butter or non-stick spray. Ladle about 1/4 cup of the mixture into the pan and spread almost to the edges. Cook until bubbles form on the top, then flip and cook until golden on both sides.
In a separate pan, cook bacon until crisp.
To serve, pile bacon on top of waffles, sprinkle with berries and drizzle with honey or maple syrup.
