  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
  • 1 tablespoon sugar (see Tip)
  • 2 teaspoons poppy seeds
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Prepare Citrus Syrup: Peel and slice oranges, reserving juice. In a small saucepan combine the reserved orange juice, water, cornstarch and honey. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Add half of the orange slices (reserve the remaining slices until ready to serve). Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Remove from heat. Stir in lemon juice. Cover to keep warm.
  2. Prepare Poppy Seed Oat Waffles: In a medium bowl stir together the all-purpose flour, oat bran, whole-wheat flour, flaxseed meal, sugar, poppy seeds, baking powder and salt. Make a well in center of flour mixture.
  3. In a small bowl combine the milk, egg, water, canola oil and vanilla. Add milk mixture all at once to flour mixture; stir just until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy).
  4. Lightly grease and preheat a standard waffle baker. Pour half of the batter (about 1 cup) onto grid, spreading to cover. Close lid quickly; do not open until done. Bake until golden and crisp. Using a fork, lift waffle off grid. Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve warm with Citrus Syrup and the remaining orange slices.
