Hearty Vegan Waffles Recipe

1 ¾ cups + 2 Tablespoons non-dairy milk
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 Tablespoons water
1 Tablespoon golden flax meal

3 Tablespoons unrefined coconut oil, melted

¾ cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup oat bran, wheat bran or wheat germ
¼ cup corn meal, toasted
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon ginger

Cooking oil spray

1) Curdle the non-dairy milk and prepare the flax mixture

Preheat your waffle iron. In a medium bowl, whisk together the non-dairy milk, apple cider vinegar and vanilla extract. In another small bowl, whisk together the water and golden flax meal. Let it sit for about 10 minutes.

2) Toast the cornmeal and whisk together the dry ingredients

Toast the corn meal (optional) in a large skillet over low heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until golden. Set aside. In a large bowl, add the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, oat bran, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, nutmeg and ginger.

3) Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients

Add the non-dairy milk, apple cider vinegar mixture and the flax meal slurry into the large bowl containing the flour. Now add the melted coconut oil and mix until just incorporated.

4) Bake the vegan waffles to perfection

Liberally coat the waffle iron cooking surface with cooking spray. It's important to do this every time you add batter to the waffle iron so the waffles don't stick. Using a ladle, pour enough batter to cover ¾ of the surface of the waffle iron. Cook 4 to 5 minutes or until the waffles are golden brown. Repeat with remaining batter.

Waffles keep for up to 5 days in an airtight container in the fridge and can be easily heated in a toaster. This recipe makes about 6 Hearty Vegan Waffles.

Waffles for the Win

This is the second recipe I have made. My friend encouraged me to try vegan. I am the main cook for my family of four and it has been hard, but not with this recipe, I don't think they even knew. So nice to eat healthier and enjoy it.

this is a pretty involved recipe to be calling "easy"

Owner's reply

You know, facey, you're absolutely right about this waffle recipe! I just changed the name to Hearty Waffles to more appropriately reflect the intention of the recipe. In the meantime, I'm going to work on a truly easy waffle recipe to post in the near future. Thanks so much for your feedback!
