Why This Recipe Works 

You definitely don’t have to miss out on waffles when you become vegan! It’s so easy to make vegan waffles. You won’t believe this recipe is completely egg and dairy-free. 

We make this recipe all the time and if you want you could even change it up a bit and add chocolate chips or blueberries.

The recipe couldn’t be much easier. You need just one bowl and your waffle maker. The actual preparation of the batter only takes 5 minutes. 

Unsweetened apple sauce is the perfect egg replacement in this recipe. And it also works as a natural sweetener at the same time. 

We like them best with maple syrup drizzled on top and fresh berries. Or try them with coconut vegan whipped cream or even with vegan vanilla ice cream on top for a more decadent version. 

What Goes Into This Recipe

  • Apple Sauce – I use unsweetened apple sauce. 
  • Almond Milk – unsweetened. Oat or soy milk work as well. 
  • Flour – I usually use all-purpose flour for the waffles. I haven’t tried making them with whole wheat flour yet. 
  • Brown Sugar – you could replace it with coconut flour if you want.

1. Step: Combine all ingredients for the vegan waffles in a medium bowl.

2. /3. Step: Using a hand whisk, stir well until all lumps are removed. The batter will be quite thin. Don’t worry, that’s normal!

4. Step: Heat your waffle maker and grease it with coconut oil or canola oil on both sides (top and bottom). Pour the batter with a ladle into the waffle iron. It depends on your waffle maker how much batter you need, so check the manufacturer instructions.

5. Step: Close your waffle maker and bake the waffles for about 5 minutes until they’re golden and crispy on the outside. Don’t open the waffle maker too early. Serve the waffles immediately with maple syrup and berries or other fruits. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes:

  • It depends a bit on your waffle maker how long the waffles take. Mine took about 5 minutes, but they can also take up to 7 minutes. Make sure not to open the waffle maker too early. Many waffle irons have a green light, which tells you when the waffles are ready.
  • I recommend checking the manufacturer instructions to see if you have to grease your waffle iron or use a non-stick spray. Some require it and others don’t.
  • I usually use coconut oil for my waffles, but the recipe also works with canola oil or melted vegan butter or margarine.
  • Don’t worry if the batter will be quite thin. That’s totally normal!

FAQs:

Can I Make This Recipe Gluten-Free? 

Yes, absolutely no problem! I recommend using a gluten-free flour blend if you want to make these waffles gluten-free. 

Can I Freeze This Recipe?

Yes, this recipe freezes really well. Just follow these three easy steps:

  1. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and place the waffles on top.
  2. Put the baking sheet in your freezer until they’re fully frozen. This will take about two hours.
  3. Then transfer the frozen waffles to freezer bags or containers.

They will last in the freezer for 3-4 months or even longer. To reheat them, just pop them in the toaster until they’re warm and crispy.

Is It Possible to Add Any Add-Ins?

Sure! If you want to change up the recipe a bit, you could add:

  • mini chocolate chips (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 2 tablespoons finely chopped apples
  • a handful of blueberries or raspberries
