Recipe Notes

1) To make a chia egg, combine 1 tablespoon of chia seeds with 3 tablespoons of water. Let sit for 10-15 minutes until a gel forms. This is ONE chia egg. This recipe calls for two so use 2 tablespoons chia seeds with 6 tablespoons of water.2) Note that melted coconut oil will quickly harden again if it comes in contact with something cold i.e. straight-from-the-fridge milk. If this is an issue, try mixing in the melted coconut oil after the other wet ingredients have already been mixed in. 3) If you are not used to eating foods with 100% whole wheat on a regular basis then I suggest you first use 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 all-purpose flour. Alternatively, these whole wheat waffles can also be made just with all-purpose flour. 4) If you don't have chia seeds you can substitute the chia seeds for flax seeds. Make flax eggs using the same seed to water ratio as with chia seeds (see above). Alternatively, use 2 pureed bananas in place of the chia eggs.5) Coconut oil can easily be replaced with olive oil, melted margarine, or canola oil.
