Vegan Belgian Waffles
We love waffles here!!
I kind of shuffled through the cupboards thinking, hmm, what do I have that would make an amazing waffle with no eggs and no milk… and… not to brag or anything but I nailed the damn thing!!!
Let me know what you think, and don’t forget to tag me on the Insta when you make your own!
2 1/4 Cups Unbleached Flour
1 TBSP Baking Powder
3 TBSP Coconut Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 Cup Applesauce (egg substitute)
1/2 Cup Unrefined Cold-pressed Virgin Coconut Oil
1 Can Coconut Milk
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Combine Dry Ingredients
Combine Wet Ingredients
Blend well with an electric mixer
Pour adequate amount on waffle iron and cook as long as desired, less for a soft waffle, a bit longer for a little crunch
You can easily substitute the applesauce for a flax egg, it’s all just trial and error. I don’t claim to be a chef!! How do you make a flax egg!?!?! Scroll down to the bottom of this post… it’ll be right there :)
If you use coconut milk, the canned coconut milk is made for cooking, the cartons are not.
I’ve never tried cooking with cartons of coconut milk (the kind you would pour over your cereal etc.) but when I’ve used it with coffee, it separates and some funkiness seems to ensue, so I never bother using it when it comes to heat now.
You are welcome to try it but my intuition tells me you’re better off not.
I literally looked through my kitchen and this was all I had, so I winged it and they wound up coming out amazing.
Tag me on Insta if you try these!! I can’t wait to hear what you think!
Here is how to make a flax egg:
1 tbsp water : 3 tbsp flax meal. Place in a small bowl and mix. Let sit for a minimum of 5 minutes so it can set. Once it’s completely set, it will be a similar consistency of an egg white; thick, goopy and gooey.
