Whole Grain Waffles

I just can't believe how AWESOME these turned out!  Who would ever even believe that they are good for you?!  The kids devoured them!  And they have whole wheat flour, flaxseed and chia seeds :)
Gonna put these in the freezer so we have a quick healthy breakfast to pull out of the oven on school days...can't wait to top them with some fresh strawberries!

Whole Grain Waffles

4 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour or whole wheat flour
3/4 cup wheat germ (I didn't have this, so I used wheat gluten?)
6 Tbsp ground flaxseed meal
3 Tbsp chia seeds
6 teaspoons baking powder
3 Tbsp raw sugar, white sugar, or agave (I used raw sugar)
1 1/2 tsp salt
3 cups milk (we use raw milk)
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup canola oil
3 large eggs
3 tsp vanilla

1.  Whisk together flour, wheat germ, flaxseed meal, chia seeds, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
2.  In separate bowl, whisk together milk, water, oil, eggs, and vanilla.  Add to the flour mixture and whisk together until smooth.
3.  Plug in (and pre-heat) electric waffle iron.  When hot, spray non-stick spray into an iron.  Laddle into waffle iron and cook according to your iron's instructions until golden brown.

(made about 20 square waffles for me, but each waffle iron will hold a different amount of batter...)
