Easy, Basic Waffles in the Morning

What you need: 

1 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
berries, to taste, optional
chocolate chips, to taste, optional
1 cup nondairy milk (I use soy)
1/2 cup applesauce

What you do: 

1. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl with berries or chocolate chips, if using. Mix the wet ingredients in a different bowl. Combine and mix until just mixed up.
2. Preheat waffle iron and spray with some nonstick oil (or wipe down with some oil). That's important cause they stuck like mad to the iron when we made them.
3. Cook according to the waffle maker's instructions, which usually means putting about 1/4 cup batter on the iron, closing, and waiting for a light to go out.
Source of recipe: My gf and I wanted some waffles but most of the vegan recipes we found were not "basic" enough and had all sorts of ingredients we didn't have on hand. We modified a recipe and here it is.

The waffles turned out perfectly on the first try. My spouse loves cinnamon and it was just the correct amount. I love that it calls for applesauce. In the future, I could sub that for fruit juicer pulp. I am already thinking pineapple. 


Oh my goodness. I had to create a log-in just to say how perfectly these turned out! Honestly I think these are the best waffles I've ever had (can't remember ever saying that about anything else I've made myself...). I topped 'em with EarthBalance, maple agave syrup and blueberries. Mmm


I have used this recipe for all my "Pancakes and Kung Fu" brunches.  I do change it up a bit.  I use 3/4 C Vanilla Almond Milk and 1/4 C Spiced Rum.  It really makes the waffles nice and crispy.  The most popular topping at my gatherings is a bananas foster topping.


I really enjoyed how simple and easy this recipe was to make. And the waffles came out beautifully--not lacking at all in the flavor department! I used whole wheat flour, and added some raspberries to the batter. Topped with some fresh berries, slivered almonds, and a little maple syrup. Loved it!


I have made this many many times I don't even need to look at the recipe anymore!

I havent tread it with applesauce yet, I've been subbing that in with banana since I always have those lying around. I've also been adding a bit of oil and vanilla extract and some sugar if my banana isn't ripe enough.

Makes amazing Belgium waffles, even the omnivores request them, which is always a reason to celebrate, hooray!


Liked this recipe, dare I say a little too much. If one hadn't stuck I would have finished the whole batch. Very tasty.

I didn't add any berries or chocolate or any thing else.


These were awesome! I used a half of a ripe banana instead of applesauce & added some nutmeg. They didn't stick to the waffle iron which was great. They were light & fluffy. Thanks!!


I loved that these were so easy!  I didn't add any berries or chocolate chips though and they definitely needed a little something extra.  Can't wait to make them again with some additions.


These were really great.  Better than another waffle recipe that I tried from this site.  I took the advice of other reviewers and added vanilla and a tad bit of canola oil.  The flavor was perfect.  My only issues were that the recipe didn't quite make enough for 3 waffles - 1/4 cup was not enough to fill the wafflemaker for a decent waffle (it was more like 1 cup per waffle).  My second issue is that before I could sink my teeth into the waffle it went limp.  I placed the last 2 waffles on a wire cooling rack - Hopefully that will fix that problem.  Next time I will double the recipe and have waffles to freeze.  Really great recipe.  Thanks. ;)b


These were pretty tasty. I added the 1 tblsp of canola oil, 1/8 c. sugar, and probably a teaspoon of vanilla. The rest I kept the same. They were so good we had them for breakfast AND dinner! Fabulous with organic maple syrup.. not floury, they have a nice cinnamon taste that's not overpowering. Very filling. Very easy. Thank you! We have our waffle recipe now :)
