Fluffy Vegan Waffles

There is just something so special about waking up on a weekend and enjoying some homemade waffles. Not to toot my own horn …but this waffle recipe is the BEST recipe you will ever try — vegan or not!
This easy waffle recipe will give you the most perfect, fluffy and crispy waffle you have ever tasted. Soft in the middle and crispy golden on the outside.
Get ready to make the best vegan breakfast you will ever have!

Tips and Substitutes:

Gluten free?
Use GF All-Purpose Flour for best results. You can also use a 50/50 mix of oat flour and GF all-purpose flour. I’ve tried both and was not disappointed!
Other substitutes:
Lemon juice for apple cider vinegar.
Coconut oil/canola oil for vegan butter.
Brown sugar/cane sugar for maple syrup.
Unsweetened soy/oat milk for almond milk.
The batter:
Avoid over-mixing! To get nice, fluffy waffles you must not over-mix. It is ok to have a few lumps — it’s actually better to have some. The batter should be thick, not runny but not dry.
Some of my favorite topping combinations:
  • Mixed berries with almond butter or cashew butter and a bit of maple syrup.
  • Sliced banana, cinnamon, peanut butter and maple syrup.
  • Figs, blueberries, golden berries and cashew butter.
