In large bowl, combine flour, chia seeds, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. In separate bowl, whisk together milk alternative, Date Purée, oil and eggs until mixture is smooth. Pour wet mixture over dry ingredients; whisk until smooth. (Make-ahead: Can be stored in airtight container and refrigerated overnight.)

Preheat waffle maker and brush lightly with oil. Preheat oven to 250°F. Using ladle, pour about 3/4 cup of batter for each waffle into waffle maker. Close waffle maker and cook until waffles are golden brown and crispy and no longer emit steam, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer cooked waffles to wire rack placed on baking sheet in oven until ready to serve. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve with apple and pear slices, if desired. (Make-ahead: Can be stored in air--tight container and refrigerated for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 1 month. Reheat waffles in toaster.)


Date Purée In microwaveable bowl, combine 3 cups pitted dried dates (about 500 g) and 1 2/3 cup water. Microwave on high about 4 minutes. Using blender or hand mixer, purée until smooth. (Make-ahead: Can be stored in airtight container and refrigerated for up to 2 weeks or frozen for up to 3 months.) Makes about 2 1/2 cups.
