Zucchini Waffles with Peaches and Flax

This breakfast treat took 10 minutes to prepare from scratch and used one of the many zucchini squash I have sitting in the kitchen awaiting preparation. I made the recipe on the fly and it turned out so well, I wrote it down before I could forget it.

So simple. So fast. So healthy… and inexpensive too!


  • 1/3 cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • 1 Medium egg
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon Powder
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract,
  • 1 medium zucchini, shredded (about a cup)
  • 1 large fresh peach, sliced thin
  • 1 tsp organic flax seed meal


  • Mix flour, egg, cinnamon, sugar, vanilla and zuchinni. The batter will be thick.
  • Spoon into a single-size no-stick waffle press (or use a pan and make it a pancake if you prefer — but you will need to increase the oil to prevent sticking which will increase the calories).
  • When waffle is done, cover with fresh, ripe peach slices and sprinkle with flax meal.
  • You can garnish with a teaspoon of heavy cream, if you like.
