Waffles are a breakfast and brunch staple for a reason – they’ve been around since the times of ancient Greece. Of course, the original “obelios” have since evolved from their primal roots, making their way into the frozen section of supermarkets and onto the plates of contented brunch-goers. Waffles have become such a mainstay that August 24 has been declared National Waffle Day, so you can bet that on this day, we are 100 percent team waffle. However, we like to get a bit creative with our waffle irons, so we’ve rounded up a list of waffle recipes that range from sweet to savory, traditional to completely unexpected. Because one thing is certain: virtually everything is better when waffled.

7 Unique Vegan Waffle Recipes, From Light and Fluffy to Falafel


1. Light and Fluffy Vegan Waffles With Blueberry Sauce

2. Vegan Falafel Waffles

Oh, we went there. Not only are falafel waffles unique and delicious, they’re also incredibly fun to say. Plus, there’s no need to fry or use excess oil when you waffle your falafel – they come out perfectly crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside every time. We suggest making a falafel waffle salad by topping chopped romaine with one or two falafel waffles slathered with hummus, cherry tomatoes, Greek olives, cucumbers, vegan feta, and a drizzle of tahini dressing.

Use your favorite brand of vegan ice cream, such as NadaMoo, Halo Top Dairy-Free, or Sorbabes, to make this dessert in a flash.
