INSTRUCTIONS
In a large bowl, combine FlapJacked mix, egg, water and sugar. Whisk thoroughly to create a semi-thick batter. Gently fold in currants and walnuts. Heat up your waffle iron. When it's ready, lightly coat with non-stick spray and pour 1/5 of the batter (about 1/2 cup) onto the griddle and cook per manufacturer's instructions (waffle size and cooking time will vary for different waffle irons). Repeat with the remaining batter until all waffles are cooked.

For the glaze: place the cream cheese and greek yogurt into a bowl and stir together well. Add in the vanilla extract and maple syrup and stir again. Gently stir in the milk to thin out the glaze. Immediately before serving, pour a few spoonfuls of the glaze onto each waffle. ENJOY!
