Flax Waffles A perfect start to the weekend!

2014-08-16 002

These waffles have been a favourite in my husband’s family for years. Light and fluffy with the added healthy flax, these waffles are great for a casual weekend brunch or special occasion. Just add some berry sauce, yoghurt, fruit and cinnamon to top it off and you’ve got a gourmet breakfast!

For those of you who have graduated through one of Fit Community’s registered sessions, you may have experienced one of these breakfasts at our end-of-session Community Brunch. Each registered session ends with a little food and mingling so we can get to know the awesome and amazing people who make our community so special and unique! One of my favourite parts of Fit Community: bringing people together and creating experiences!
