Meatless Monday (or Memorial Weekend) Recipe: Vegan Waffles

 

Vegan Waffle with Blueberries (thawed from frozen) and Vegan Sausage

Over the years I've tried numerous vegan waffle recipes and let's just say, I've never tried the same recipe twice. But that all changed when I found this recipe on The Viet Vegan. (She veganized the recipe from another site.) Made with flax seeds and coconut oil, this is a healthier option than those made with eggs and vegetable oil.

Vegan Waffles for Two

This vegan waffle recipe serves two people. Flax seeds add extra fiber while acting as the egg in the recipe. I double the recipe and put them in the refrigerator for the week. They're easy to reheat: just pop one in the toaster.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp flax meal
  • 3 Tbsp warm water
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil in liquid state (vegetable oil or grapeseed would work here too)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 cup almond milk (or other milk)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

To serve

  • Maple Syrup
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Fruit of your choice (I've made these with bananas as well as frozen blueberries, thawed in warm water.)

Instructions

  1. Preheat a waffle iron.
  2. Mix flax meal and warm water and let sit for about 2 minutes until it's thickened. Add in coconut oil and mix.
  3. Add flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, almond milk, vanilla extract and whisk together until no lumps remain.
  4. Pour into waffle iron and cook according to manufacturer's instructions. Serve with a light dusting of powdered sugar with some fruit and maple syrup!
