Breakfast of Champions

Coco/nut Waffles
Makes 4 medium-sized waffles.
A good dose of fibre disguised as a decadent breakfast treat; goes well with eggs and peameal!

The Waffles
1 C whole wheat flour
1/2 C slivered almonds
1/2 C shredded coconut (omit maple syrup if sweetened)
1/2 C oats
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3 tbsp maple syrup (or other sweet stuff of your choosing)
2 large eggs
1 1/2 C milk
1 tsp vanilla/almond extract

Heat waffle iron. Combine & mix dry ingredients. Whisk together milk, eggs, extracts. Whisk dry and wet ingredients to combine, batter will be lumpy.
Ladle batter onto waffle iron, help batter spread out to edges. Close iron and wait for the magic to happen.

Notes: for more flavour, toast coconut and almonds slightly in dry skillet and if you don't have a waffle iron don't hesitate to pancake-ize these suckers. They're super hearty, really high in fibre and make superbly satisfying, on-the-small-side pancakes.
