Pumpkin Flax Waffles

Though higher in fat than most DFM fair, these waffles are high in, well, the good kind of fat? Yeah, English. Anyway, with the addition of flax seeds, we introduce omega-3 fatty acids into the mix. So grab yourself a banana and a smidgen of peanut butter and have yourself a merry little breakfast.

P.S. – These are easy. So easy. Just scroll down and look at the length of the instructions, or lack thereof.

P.P.S. – Yes, you can use this recipe for pancakes too.
