I LOVE breakfast, so it should come as no surprise I’ve been around the breakfast block a time or two. I’ve mastered omelettes, scrambles, french toast, pancakes, good coffee, you name it. However, my waffle game was lacking. Lacking until I met Daniel and he introduced me to his vegan waffles.
I have to admit I was skeptical at first (who makes waffles without eggs or milk?). If he hadn’t won me over with his handsome smile and perfect hair this recipe would have done the trick.
These waffles taste like Christmas morning – warm, a little bit sweet, gooey on the inside with a touch of cinnamon to top them off. Is your mouth watering yet?
I think the reason I most love breakfast is because it brings people together. I can’t count the number of great conversations and laughs I’ve had over something syrupy and a hot cup of coffee. Breakfast just feels like home. An amazing breakfast is the key to a great day.
Dust off that waffle maker and get to baking. To say they’re a game changer is an understatement and there isn’t one unhealthy ingredient! That’s a win in my book.
These gems are best served with a table full of company and endless amounts of coffee. I would wait to tell your guests their vegan until there are only crumbs left. They probably won’t believe you anways! Like I said, I was skeptical too, that is until I took the first bite.
Makes 2 Waffles
1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pancake Mix
¼ cup Bob’s Red Mill 100% Whole Ground Golden Flaxseed1
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
1 ½ tsp. cacao powder
1 ⅓ cup of almond milk
Toppings: Justin's Vanilla Almond Butter, fresh strawberries, and agave syrup
- Whisk together all ingredients until smooth. Your batter should be a little lighter than pudding consistency.
- Heat your Belgian waffle maker up and spray with cooking spray (I prefer Pam Coconut Oil). When the ready light comes on, pour the batter in the waffle maker. Now sit back and let that waffle maker do its job!
- Most waffle makers have a ready light that will turn on when your waffle is done. If not, you can usually see the waffle peaking out from the side of the waffle maker. It should look more cake like and less batter like with the top and bottom a golden brown color. Also there should be no steam escaping out the sides.
- We use Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter as the first topping, then we layer on some fresh strawberries or jam and finally top it off with a little agave. These are great with whatever fruit you have on hand or even maple syrup. Be prepared to serve second helpings!
