Equipment

  • waffle iron

Ingredients

  • DRY INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp finely ground sea salt
  • WET INGREDIENTS
  • Egg replacer for the equivalent of 2 eggs SEE NOTE
  • 1 tbsp canola oil + extra to brush on the waffle iron
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened plant milk we don’t recommend coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar or fresh lemon juice

Instructions

  • Whisk the 1 ½ cups of unsweetened plant milk and 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice) together and let it sit for 15 minutes.
  • Whisk the 2 cups of flour, 2 tsp of baking powder, ¾ tsp of baking soda, 1 tbsp of sugar, and ¼ tsp salt (omit if you chose the applesauce egg replacer) together in a large bowl. Make sure the ingredients are completely combined.
  • Stir the egg replacer, vegan buttermilk, 1 tbsp canola oil, and 1 tsp vanilla extract into the dry mixture until it’s combined.
  • Don’t overdo it or the waffles will turn out tough.
  • Heat the waffle iron and brush with a light layer of oil to prevent the waffles from sticking.
  • Fill the iron with waffle batter (we use an ice cream scoop or a ladle to scoop out the batter, don’t over fill or the batter will spill down the sides) and close the lid. Follow the cooking time for your iron.
  • Generally, when the waffles stop steaming, they’re done, approximately 5 to 7 minutes.
  • They should be a light golden brown and crispy on the outside.
  • If you’re making waffles for a group, warm the oven at 200˚F (93˚C) and put the waffles in the oven to stay warm.
