Delicious and Easy Vegan Waffle Recipe
Making light and flavorful vegan breakfast foods and desserts that traditionally rely on eggs and milk can be a challenge. My wife has recently been using this recipe for whole wheat vegan waffles. She adapted it from a non-vegan recipe found in “The Irregardless Cooks.” The result has been light, golden brown, delicious waffles.
How to Make
Gently mix together all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk the wet ingredients together in a second bowl, leaving out the egg replacer for the moment. Beat the egg replacer (with a spoon is fine), and add to the other wet ingredients. Add all of the wet ingredients to the dry, quickly stirring them all together. The mixture may be a little lumpy.
Cook with a hot waffle iron using a minimal amount of additional oil as needed. We like to top our waffles with soy yogurt, fresh fruit and a little bit of jam or jelly. Enjoy!
