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!
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
- 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
- Fresh Fruits
- Black Tahini
- Waffle Maker
- 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.
- In the meantime, in a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
- Serve with fresh fruits and a drizzle of black tahini or vegan chocolate sauce!
