So a couple months ago we posted these melt in your mouth waffles and you guys loved them.

The next step after making these melt in your mouth waffles?

A just as good vegan version. A huge stack of them, covered with powdered sugar, a cascade of pure maple syrup, and lots of fresh strawberries and bananas. Paired with a steamy cup of french vanilla coffee or mug of chai tea. Yup, that’s my definition of a perfect Sunday morning.

Moving right along…

Not only did you guys love those waffles but they are also one of my most popular waffle recipes. And here’s why: it’s easy, it’s quick, it’s tasty. For today’s waffle variety, I simply switched up a few ingredients in order to make these gems vegan. YAY!!

Waffles are so simple to make at home. I have no idea why I ever bought boxed mix from the store. It’s overpriced, the ingredient lists are usually odd, and it’s likely full of refined sugar and unnecessary fats. Waffles are one of the easiest, practically-no-work-involved breakfasts and you don’t need 27 different weird ingredients to throw it together. I tend to make waffles a whole lot more than pancakes because there is not any babysitting of pancakes… just pour, close, cook, eat! My basic formula is usually based off of these waffles. I customize it based on the flavors I’m craving or the ingredients I have on hand. Like these strawberry jam swirled waffles or my browned butter blueberry waffles, strawberry swirled cornbread waffles, and extra fluffy vegan banana pecan waffles. I get it, I’m a waffle girl.

At the moment, I am not feeling crazy concoctions, so I’m giving it to you straight up, in all it’s plain melty wonderfulness: The Best Vegan Waffles Ever. No need to fancify.

These are perfect for times when you don’t want anything really far outside of the box. Like, literally, nothing too far from the frozen waffles that come from the yellow box. Just maybe a little healthier and homemade.

Happy eating!

Melt In Your Mouth Vegan Waffles

Fluffy and piled high, these vegan waffles that literally melt in your mouth are the sweetest way to wake up in the morning!

Ingredients:

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/4 cups almond meal
½ cup sugar
1 tablespoon double acting baking powder (I use double acting baking powder for extra fluffiness)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups almond or coconut milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 Tablespoons applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Preheat waffle iron according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, almond meal, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl or liquid measuring cup, whisk together milk, oil, applesauce, and vanilla; until smooth.
  4. Gently fold the milk mixture into the flour mixture and stir until smooth. It is okay if the batter has a few lumps. Do not overmix.
  5. Pour batter onto hot waffle iron and bake in batches.
  6. Serve the waffles immediately with butter and maple syrup, or your choice of toppings. Waffles are best enjoyed the same day. Extras may be refrigerated up to 3 days. Waffles may be frozen, up to 3 months, then warmed in the toaster.
