Could you guess what I haven’t eaten for such a long time?! It‘s waffles!
And that’s because I just couldn’t find a suitable waffle iron. But since Christmas it’s finally here!
Meanwhile, I’ve experimented a bit to create a vegan waffle recipe which is just perfect for me. Of course, I don’t want to withhold this recipe from you because I think that waffles aren‘t only a super quick and healthy breakfast alternative to oatmeal, pancakes, crêpes or french toasts, but they’re also a great afternoon snack or a snack to take to work, university or school.
Easy vegan waffles with only a few simple ingredients
These waffles are quick and easy to make and you need only a few ingredients. Thanks to the natural sweetness of the banana, they can also be made without any white sugar.
Incidentally, the banana doesn’t only ensure a delicious sweet taste but also a juicier consistency. It also serves to bind the dough and is therefore an egg substitute. Other ways to replace eggs can be found in this post: “fluffy pancakes“.
For the dough I used spelt flour but you can also use any other flour if you want.Probably you’ll have to adjust the amount of liquid then because not every type of flour absorbs the same amount of liquid.
If I choose a sweet topping for my waffles, such as nut nougat cream or jam, then I usually don‘t add so much more sweetener to the waffle dough. But if I only have berries and peanut butter or other nut butter as a topping, then the dough can be sweeter and I add some agave syrup.
Of course, you can vary the sweetness and also use any other sweetener as desired.
Vegan chocolate waffles
You can, of course, also make chocolate waffles with this recipe. Simply add 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder and a little bit more plant-based milk too the batter.
Anyways, I love this simple vegan waffle recipe and I‘m very sure that waffles will now be more often on my plate. In the summer maybe with a big scoop of icecream.
If you try my recipe, I would be happy to read your feedback.
