Vegan Waffle Recipe | Waffle Recipe is a delicious take on a classic, it is just as fluffy, moist from within and crispy on the edges! A perfect recipe for poultry free and dairy free waffle is hard to come by, but this one does the job! You’ll probably want to make them all the time once you’ve tried them! Besides, you can freeze these waffles too, so yay for that!

Vegan Waffle Recipe | Waffle Recipe is thick, has the most moist crumb and the edges have the perfect crispiness. They are not too sweet but you can always adjust that as per your preference. But I would suggest that you don’t load them with too much sugar because then, all the maple syrup and fruits on the side or maybe some vegan ice cream as toppings, will really make the sweetness too overwhelming. So, just saying that you may want to rethink before you add any extra sugar to the batter 🙂

As you can see up close, the texture is really nice and the color too is perfect. My husband who is the real waffle lover between the two of us, approved these Vegan Waffle Recipe | Waffle Recipe quite happily. I didtry a few recipes earlier too, but they always lacked the texture somehow. But this recipe worked well without having to use many alternate ingredients. I have made it 3-4 times so far and only when i was fully satisfied, I thought, let me share this with you guys since people often ask me for poultry free recipes and this will fit the bill!

We had our Vegan Waffle Recipe | Waffle Recipe with classic maple syrup (didn’t drizzle much while I shot these as wanted to focus on the texture). You can enjoy them with vegan whipped cream, Fruit compotes, vegan strawberry jam. If you are not following a vegan diet, honey tastes really good on waffles too. You can pair these with a large scoop of your favorite ice cream! That’s my favorite way, in fact the only way I ever have a few bites of any waffle.

As you see in the picture just above, these waffles soaked the syrup really well. That’s how soft an fluffy they turn out. I will share in the recipe how we make the egg replacer and also how we make the flavored batters.

I will share the other variations that you can go for in terms of flavors which I have not made with this batter but you can try below.

Choco chip Waffles – Add about 3 tbsp. of Choco chips (vegan or regular) to the plain vanilla batter, mix well and pour onto the hot waffle maker and cook as per my recipe below.

Almond Waffles – Add @ tbsp. of almond flour/ meal to every 1 cup of plain vanilla batter, mix well and pour on the hot waffle maker and cook as per my recipe below.

Strawberry Waffles – Just add some chopped strawberries to the plain vanilla batter, mix gently and pour on the hot waffle maker and cook as per my recipe below.

These are just a few basic ideas for you guys to play around with. You can create more variations if you like.

Let us quickly get on with recipe.

How to make the flax egg?

Mix 2 tbsp. of flax meal (ground flax seeds, I ground my own flaxseeds to make this meal) with 4 tbsp. plain water. Mix these well. Set them aside in the refrigerator for 10 minutes. It will thicken and develop an egg like texture.

Heat the waffle maker as per the instruction manual.

Now, mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Make sure there are lumps.

Next, add the wet ingredients the dry ingredients including the flax egg which we had kept ready.

Whisk until the batter is smooth. But do not overmix.

Divide the batter in 3 equal parts to flavor them. I made 2-3 waffles of each flavor.

The first part will remain as plain vanilla.

The second is chocolate batter, add 1.5 tbsp. cocoa powder and mix well. If the batter looks dry, add a few drops of almond/ plant based milk to correct the consistency.

The third is for birthday cake sprinkles batter. Add 1 tsp. of sprinkles to the batter and mix well.

Apply some oil on the waffle make plates. Ensure you grease it well.

Now, pour about 4-5 tbsp. of batter in each section of the waffle maker.

Close the waffle maker and let the waffles cook as per instructions on the waffle maker. My waffle maker takes about 6-7 minutes to make crispy, golden brown waffles. So please check your waffle maker and follow the instructions. Every waffle make has different heat adjustment levels so be careful and do not burn them.

Make all the waffles similarly using the different batters. I could make 9-10 small- medium waffles. You can make 5 large square/ round waffles but we prefer them slightly small and point edged.

Serve them hot/ warm with your favorite toppings!

How to freeze them?

Once these waffles have cooled completely, wrap each waffle in cling wrap and place them in a freezer safe container and place them in the freezer. When you have to consume them, simply thaw them at room temperature for 15-20 minutes. Then reheat them in waffle maker. Do not burn them, just reheat them and they turn nice and crispy again. They can frozen for up to 6-7 days. Maybe more but I haven’t tried.
