Wholesome Plant-Based Waffles: A Nutrient-Packed Breakfast Choice

Waffles don’t have to be a guilty pleasure. I’ve crafted this vegan recipe not just for vegans but for anyone who craves the deliciousness of waffles while embracing the health benefits of plant-based ingredients. My Vegan Waffles offer a delightful fusion of delectable taste and nourishing goodness. Each bite provides the familiar satisfaction of traditional waffles, but with the added bonus of health-enhancing ingredients.

Almond milk, a key component in this recipe, lends a subtle nutty flavor while providing a wealth of vitamins and minerals. It’s lower in calories than dairy milk and rich in antioxidants, making it an excellent choice for those watching their calorie intake and seeking to boost their overall health.

Spelt flour is another star player, delivering a hearty dose of fiber, protein, and essential nutrients. It offers a nutty, slightly sweet flavor that complements the waffles’ overall taste, making it an excellent choice for those looking to incorporate whole grains into their diet.

As you savor these waffles, you’ll find that you can enjoy them without compromising your dietary goals or your love for exceptional taste. Whether you’re a seasoned vegan or a newcomer to plant-based cuisine, these waffles are sure to win your heart and palate.


1 tablespoon ground flax meal
1/4 cup warm water
1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk or any vegan milk|
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1 cup spelt flour
1 cup corn flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon organic maple syrup
1/4 cup melted coconut oil or melted vegan butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 4 waffles

Preheat your waffle iron to a medium setting.

In a prep bowl, thoroughly combine flax meal and water, then set it aside for 5 minutes.

In a large mixing bowl, blend almond milk and apple cider vinegar, and set it aside.

Place spelt flour, corn flour, baking powder, and salt in a sifter, then sift them into the wet mixture. Stir to combine.

Add the flax egg, almond milk mixture, maple syrup, melted vegan butter, and vanilla to the dry ingredients. Gently stir until combined, taking care not to overmix; it’s perfectly fine if there are some lumps.

Grease your waffle iron with vegan butter or oil.

Pour 1/2 cup of waffle batter onto the waffle iron, close the lid, and patiently wait until it signals readiness. Then, delicately remove the waffle, using a spatula to slide it from the edges.

Serve your waffles while warm, topped with your favorite toppings.
