This vegan waffle recipe is banging! We’re so proud of this recipe, even though it’s so simple. We did a lot of research into how to make the perfect fluffy vegan waffle, and we think we’ve cracked it – in less than seven ingredients, too! All you need is a waffle maker. Finally, there’s a reason to use that kitchen gadget more than just a few times a year. This recipe will earn it a permanent space on your countertop.
2 cups plain white flour (you could use wholemeal, too)
2 cups almond milk
4 teaspoons baking powder
Pinch of salt
2 tablespoons coconut sugar
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Heat up your waffle maker. We use a Belgian waffle maker, there's only one setting and it works perfectly. If yours has a setting function set it to the one that suits you best – there should be instructions in the packaging.
Whisk together the almond milk and oil in a small bowl, then set aside for a few minutes.
Mix all the dry ingredients together in another bowl.
Create a well in the middle of the dry mix and then pour the wet ingredients in, and whisk very quickly until there are no lumps. This should be done very quickly, as the baking powder gets to work as soon as the wet ingredients hit the dry.
1/3 cup is the perfect amount of waffle batter for one waffle in our maker, so that's what we've used here. That seems to be standard but this bit might take a bit of trial and error.
When you've filled the waffle maker with batter, carefully close it up and start a timer for five minutes.
After five minutes, remove the waffles from the machine. They should be nice and golden brown, leave them in for another minute if they're not quite golden.
