This isn't an early postpartum food per say but it would be totally yummy after 6 weeks. This is one of our go to #ToddlerFoods that we use for snacks. Move over Eggos....
2 eggs, large
1 1/2 cups any milk (I used coconut almond milk)
1/4 cup of water (optional)
3 tbsp maple syrup or honey
3 tbsp extra virgin avocado oil, (butter or olive oil is OK)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp aluminum free baking powder
2 tbsp ground flax
1 tbsp hemp protein
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups whole wheat flour
In a large mixing bowl, lightly beat eggs. Add milk, maple syrup, avocado oil, vanilla, flax, hemp, baking powder and salt; whisk until well combined. Add whole wheat flour, mix well.
Preheat waffle maker and make waffles according to your waffle maker’s instructions.
The water can be used to thin out the batter.
We freeze these and serve at snack time topped with Mixed Berry Chia Jam, Fruit Compote or Goat Yogurt.
For a snack, these are easy and offer something substation with a little bit of nutrition crammed in.
Not a postpartum food.
