Several Christmases ago I got a waffle maker just like this one as a gift and we’ve never looked back! Almost every Saturday I make waffles for the family. It’s become our “special breakfast day” tradition. But it’s one I don’t often participate in the eating of! I thought it was about time I try to put together a vegan version and these vegan waffles also happen to be gluten free!
Flax eggs replace the eggs usually used in waffles, yet you still get a beautifully crispy on the outside waffle that tastes delicious with berries and a little pure maple syrup. Flax eggs are super easy to make and work as an egg replacement in many recipes. For one flax egg combine 1 Tbsp of flax meal with 3 Tbsp of water and let sit for 5 minutes to thicken. This recipe also allows a little time for the baking powder to work its magic, which produces deliciously fluffy waffles.
This recipe doesn’t have sweetener in it, as we pop a little maple syrup on top. If you prefer a sweeter waffle add 1-2 Tbsp of pure maple syrup to the wet ingredients. Print
