  • 2 cups garbanzo bean flour (recipe works with all-purpose flour as well)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 flax eggs (1 flax egg = 3 Tbs water + 1 Tbs ground flax seed)
  • 1 small zucchini (about 2 cups grated using the course holes on a box grater)
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil + plus more to drizzle
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, finely chopped (or other fresh herbs)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced


  • 4 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 2 avocados, sliced
  • olive oil, salt and pepper to top


  1. Make the flax egg by mixing water and ground flax seed - set aside.

  2. Shred zucchini - pressing the shredded zucchini with paper towels to remove some of the moisture.

  3. Mix dry ingredients - flour, baking powder, salt, pepper - in a bowl.

  4. Mix flax eggs, zucchini, almond milk, olive oil, garlic and herbs in another bowl.

  5. Combine both together in one bowl. Mix until all flour is incorporated.

  6. Spoon into hot and greased waffle iron + waffle it!

  7. While the waffles are cooking, prepare the toppings. Chop the tomatoes (make sure to include the tomato juice in the bowl with the tomatoes - it soaks into the waffle and it's so good). Sprinkle tomatoes with salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Slice the avocado.

  8. Once the waffles are ready, top with chopped tomatoes and avocado, option to drizzle with olive oil and extra herbs and salt and pepper. Then SERVE IT UP!
