Vegan Waffles

These Crispy Chewy waffles will leave you asking – are they really vegan??!! 😉

Waffles aren’t a big part of my diet but I’ve always enjoyed them. I remember traveling to Belgium during winter one year and being warmed by a chocolate waffle that I picked up at one of their many street-side waffles shops. Here in Australia they are harder to come by so I decided to invest in a waffle maker – and next thing you know, I’m making waffles!

These waffles hold together pretty well despite there being a lack of eggs to help bind it all together. I probably wouldn’t be able to walk around the streets with one in my hands, but they definitely hit the spot and taste pretty well good!

Vegan Waffles

A healthy start to the weekend! Serve up these simply delicious crispy chewy waffles with fresh fruit and tahini for a healthy no-guilt treat! 

Serves 6 | Prep Time: 20 Minutes | Cook Time: 20 Minutes | Easy

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 Cups Plain Flour
  • 1/2 Cups Rolled Oats
  • 1 1/4 Cup Nut Milk (I prefer Almond Milk)
  • 1 Teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil, melted
  • 3 Tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • Pinch Salt

Toppings

  • Fresh Fruits
  • Black Tahini

Equipment

  • Waffle Maker
  • Oven

Method

  1. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the nut milk and apple cider vinegar. Let this sit for 3-4 minutes. The mixture will curdle and take on a lumpy appearance.
  2. In the meantime, in a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.
  3. Once curdled, to the wet ingredients add the coconut oil, vanilla extract and maple syrup. Whisk together then add to dry ingredients and combine well (the mixture may still look a little lumpy at first, that’s okay!). Let sit for 10 – 15 minutes.
  4. Coat your waffle maker with a non-stick spray and pre-heat your maker to your preferred crispiness setting. Once ready, pour enough batter so that the plate is 4/5 filled (this was about 1/2 cup for me). Cook for 8 minutes or until the desired browning occurs.
  5. While you use up the remaining the batter, lay your waffles in a single layer on a baking tray and leave in the oven on low heat or 160’c. This has the added advantage of making your waffles crispier, if that is your desire!
  6. Serve with fresh fruits and a drizzle of black tahini or vegan chocolate sauce!
