Tips & Tricks for Vegan Waffles
Flax Seed Eggs
Make sure to let your flax seed and water mixture sit for 10 minutes after combining. You need to allow the mixture to sit this long so it has time to thicken. This flax egg will be the binding ingredient in your waffles, so you want to make sure it's right!
Mixing the Batter
When mixing up the batter, it's okay if there are a few lumps in it. For the most part, you want to work out most of the lumps. But you also don't want to overmix the batter or else your waffles will be too dense!
Variations to Vegan Waffles
Add in some cocoa powder to make a chocolate flavored waffles! This is a delicious way to enhance the flavor.
Mix in fresh or frozen fruit to create berry waffles. Any fruit—not just berries—works great for this breakfast waffle recipe.
Add some apple pie spice, cinnamon, or even pumpkin spice to your waffles for another layer of flavor! I recommend ½–1 teaspoon of spice depending on which kind you choose.
Grab your favorite vegan chocolate chips or chunks, and mix them in. Aim for around ½ cup of chocolate pieces for one batch of waffle batter.
