There’s nothing like a stack of delicious egg free waffles to start your day! These cinnamon sugar waffles are light and fluffy, and perfect when topped with maple syrup!
Breakfast can be a tricky meal if you can’t eat eggs or dairy. I know when we first removed those from our diet, we were a little stumped at breakfast time.
Thank goodness it’s pretty easy to make many breakfast items without any dairy or eggs. These waffles are a perfect example. They are super light, fluffy, and crispy on the outside. I love vegan waffles, and you can make just about any flavor. We love pumpkin waffles and banana waffles, too.
We usually make a sweet breakfast on the weekend, and these cinnamon sugar waffles are a new favorite!
- Flour – I used white spelt flour, but you can use all-purpose flour if you prefer. The results should be similar. I haven’t tried making these with gluten free flour yet – let me know if you do!
- Vegan Buttery Spread – I like to make these with melted Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Spread. You could also use organic canola oil or coconut oil.
- Water – To keep things simple, I use water in this batter. If you prefer to use non-dairy milk, that is also okay.
If you’ve been avoiding waffles because you have an egg allergy or follow a vegan diet, I think you’ll be surprised at how delicious these are. The secret is a higher amount of baking powder, and a little bit of vinegar to replace the eggs. These two ingredients allow the batter to puff up nicely and makes a very tender waffle.
You can see in the photos below how fluffy the batter gets.
As you spoon the batter into your waffle iron, it will still appear very puffy and light.
Tips for Success
- Make sure your baking powder is fresh – check the expiration date!
- Don’t over-stir the batter
- Gently spoon it into the waffle iron and follow the instructions for your particular appliance
Try topping these with:
- butter and maple syrup
- whipped coconut cream and berries
- cherry chia seed pudding
- ice cream and hot fudge if you are serving them for dessert
You can freeze these! Just allow them to cool, and then store in a freezer bag. They should stay fresh frozen for up to 3 months.
