What’s better than a big breakfast of vegan maple vanilla waffles? This recipe is sure to become a favorite.
We love to have waffles over here, and it was difficult for a while when I couldn’t eat any gluten or eggs. Eggs are still off the list, but now that I can eat spelt flour, it’s easy to make light and fluffy waffles.
I spent some time experimenting until I came up with a recipe that works for our diet and isn’t too bland. These vegan maple vanilla waffles are so yummy! It seems like a lot of baking powder, but it acts as a replacement for eggs in that it causes the batter to rise quite a bit. Darryl says these are the best waffles he’s ever had. :)
In fact, we’ve been making these vegan maple vanilla waffles so frequently that our cheapy waffle iron seems to be wearing out. A new one is on the list…I’m wondering if square waffles might be a fun change? (affiliate link)
Vegan Maple Vanilla Waffles.
A recipe for vegan maple vanilla waffles made with spelt flour. A delicious homemade breakfast.
- 1 cup flour we used whole grain spelt
- 1 1/2 Tablespoons baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/4-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup water
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
- 3 Tablespoons organic canola oil
Mix ingredients in bowl, and allow to rise for a few minutes while your waffle iron heats up. The baking powder is going to puff the batter up.
Make sure to grease your waffle iron well, we used canola oil, and apply it again after each waffle cooks.
Serve with maple syrup or berries.
These vegan maple vanilla waffles are:
- easy to make
- light and fluffy
- perfect for a weekend breakfast
Of course you can customize these if you like! You can use the sweetener of your choice, and the flour of your choice. I don’t know if gluten free flour would work very well here. If you try that let me know how it goes!
We love these topped with fresh fruit, too! These are perfect for a weekend brunch or breakfast.
