Vegan Waffles Recipe

These vegan waffles are the perfect, plant-based start to your morning!

So I recently signed up for a plant-based culinary program. The program is online, and the moment I gained access to the recipes there, I spent an entire evening printing them off and sorting them into a tabbed binder.

One of the recipes was for vegan waffles.

A tall stack of these Vegan Waffles sits on a cutting board with a few cashews sprinkled over the top and around the base. A bottle of maple syrup is pouring out over the top of the waffles.

In the past, I tried a plant-based waffle recipe that was also low carb. I attempted it with almond flour and to say it was an epic failure is a vast understatement. One of those disasters that goes straight into the trash.

So I was leery about trying the vegan waffles from the school. But one thing I didn’t like about the recipe was that it used regular white flour, fruit juics AND sugar. It would have been an absolute bomb to drop on my blood sugar first thing in the morning.

So I switched things up and ended up with the below adaptation. I will say that one critical part to this recipe is having a good, fresh baking powder. Older baking powder won’t do the job. You won’t get that “fluffy”, “foamy” texture in your batter. So be sure you have a good baking powder.

A close up shot of this big stack of Vegan Waffles sits on a wooden cutting board. The maple syrup is dripping down the sides of the stack.

I didn’t have any “non-stick spray” that the recipe called for and I don’t care for using that stuff anyway. Typically, I use and oil sprayer that I fill myself. But my last one broke and I haven’t purchased a new one yet, so I simply used a small bowl of oil with a basting brush and it worked just fine.

This is a pretty versatile recipe as far as flavorings are concerned, so I’ll be experimenting with other flavors in the future. But for now, these were exactly what my plant-based tummy needed for breakfast and I fully enjoyed every bite. I hope you do too!

Servings: 16 standard, square waffles

Author: Last Minute Vegan
  • 3 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 tbsp. xylitol (or other vegan, granular sweetener)
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 3 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/3 cup oil (I used grapeseed, but anything light in flavor will work)
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • toppings of your choice
  1. Heat your waffle iron and brush on some oil (or use an oil sprayer)

  2. In a medium to large mixing bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients.

  3. In a separate medium to large mixing bowl, whisk together all wet ingredients.

  4. Using a wooden spoon, gently stir the wet and dry mixes together. Some clumps are okay. Don't over mix this.

  5. If your baking powder was good, the mixture should start to foam or get "puffy" in the bowl after a few moment.

  6. Spoon the mixture onto the hot waffle iron and close lid to cook according to your waffle maker's directions.

  7. Serve with your favorite toppings.

  8. If you have more than you can eat, freeze these in a freezer-safe container for up to three months. Simply pop in the toaster or toaster oven to reheat.
