Wheat Flour – Flax Seed powder – Zucchini Waffles

wheat flax zucchini waffles

Breakfast in my house is usually a typical Indian spread – either uppittu/upma/dosas/idlis. I cook both lunch and breakfast in the mornings. V tells me to take a break once in a while when we can just eat cereals. But breakfast for me has to be something hot and savory!. Since he loves waffles, I bought a waffle iron last year. I made waffles a couple of times, then it sat in one corner (Thank god for lot of cabinets in my kitchen – but they are all overflowing now!). Yesterday I thought Ishaan would love these and I wanted to bring out the waffle iron. Anything that looks interesting is a hit with the kid. He looked at it and he was super excited. (He hates all kinds of sweets, so he didn’t eat much! I am planning to make a savory version soon for him). These came out super delicious. I follow easy way out and just mix everything in one go. It took less than 10mins to prepare the batter. You can increase the amount of flax seed powder, I was worried that the smell of it would be too strong for us.

Looks good and would be over-the-top awesome as a savory version, methinks! I’ve been pondering whether to buy a waffle iron…do you find that you use yours a lot?


I don’t use it very frequently Nupur. But Ishaan was super excited, so I may use it more. I will have to make a savory version for that!



Could you please suggest some replacement for egg?


Archana, I have tried similar versions without eggs. I would suggest just leaving it out. You can increase baking soda to 1 tea spn (I usually don’t increase it, the waffles come out a little bit dense, but still good)



Can you suggest any good waffle makers? Which one is your brand?

The waffles look so delicious. The picture made me want to grab a bite right off the computer monitor! sigh..

I will deffy try this after i buy a waffle maker.



great waffles. the only change I made wa s separate the whites and yolks and beat the whites until soft peaks are formed and then folded it into the batter very gently. the waffles had a crispy outside …. i will try it with bananas tommorrow.

aru rao


Hi Shilpa ..
love ur recipes … Have tried waffles before but they do not turn out crisp enough .. I am frm Mumbai and own a Morphy Richards sandwich & waffle maker … How shld the texture of
a perfect waffle be ?


Have you tried this recipe? This usually makes crispy waffles. Keep it for little longer in the waffle maker to get a brownish color and it will be crispy.
