Looking for an easy dairy-free and vegan waffle recipe? Here's one to try. These vegan waffles are low-fat (almost fat-free, in fact!) and are made with whole wheat flour. Well, half whole-wheat flour at least! They use applesauce instead of oil, so they are almost fat-free, though the soy milk does add a trivial amount of natural fat.
The perfect vegan waffle can be a bit elusive since there are so many factors at play. Vegan waffles are notorious for sticking. This is because they have less fat than waffles made with butter and dairy milk, and this particular vegan waffle recipe, which has no oil, butter or margarine at all, has even less fat than most recipes. So you'll need to make sure your waffle iron is well greased to avoid any problems with stickiness.
Another quick tip for making the perfect vegan waffles at home? Be patient, and give your waffle iron enough time to thoroughly and evenly heat up. Like crepes (and particularly vegan crepes) it sometimes seems like the first batch of waffles you make is always a little off, and much of this has to do with the uneven cooking surface temperature, so be patient! The perfect homemade vegan waffle is worth the wait!
Not sure what to top them off with? Maple syrup is traditional, of course, but agave nectar, or brown rice syrup would be good if you want to avoid refined sugar, or, try a fruit compote or even just fruit preserves for something a little bit healthier.
Of course, there's plenty of other vegan breakfast recipes you can try!
Gather the ingredients.
Be sure to pre-heat and lightly grease your waffle iron (I like to use a coconut oil cooking spray for making pancakes and waffles as it smells amazing as it cooks). Give your waffle iron plenty of time to get hot in order to ensure an even cooking temperature for your waffles.
In a medium-sized bowl, combine the flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, and salt, stirring to combine well.
Next, add the soy milk (or another vegan milk substitute) and applesauce to the dry ingredients and stir it all together to combine until well mixed.
Pour your waffle batter into your lightly greased (and hot!) waffle iron and cook until your waffles are lightly golden brown.
Serve and enjoy!
