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.

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 :)


They were delicious. I had a blast eating em all up. i added a whole bunch of mixed berries. I realized cherries dont lke being squished.

Like some other commenters, I didnt have any applesauce so I used flaxseed and some oil. I think i should've also added a dash of sweetener since I didnt use the applesauce. Other than that, they were divine.


I didn't have applesauce or plant milk (I even lack ingredients in recipes called 'basic'- how sad), so I used 1/2 mashed banana and water.
I added chocolate chips, a dash of vanilla, and a tbsp oil.  Topped with walnuts and fruit and a tiny bit of maple syrup.
They didn't stick at all, rose well, very yummy :) 

I will definitely make these again-I really want to use pureed pumpkin instead of applesauce, and pumpkin pie spice with the cinnamon, see how it turns out... when fall comes, I just make pumpkin everything :)

Anyways, THANK YOU for the recipe!  ;)b


These waffles were wonderful!  Easy to make and delicous.  We topped them with fresh fruit - Mangoes, Kiwi & Strawberries and soy yogurt.  Easy to remove from the waffle iron and nice golden color.

The only thing I did different was use Wheat Pastry Flour (I didn't have reg wheat flour on hand and I like pastry flour f/waffles because it makes they lighter) and I used Vanilla Soy Milk. 

We own a B&B and are rated the most dietary friendly in New England... it's nice to have a website to get such good recipes from.  My husband and I even are starting to eat more and more vegan.  Thank you for such a good recipe.


These were the first waffles I ever made or ate so I don't really have anything to compare them to, but they were ultra tasty and I love the texture! I didn't have any applesauce, so subbed 1 egg replacer and some oil. Easy, quick, no sticking issues, and nice :D perfect amount for a breakfast for two. Two thumbs up!


I tried these after looking at other recipes that required one too many ingredients...that's a little too much work for the early morning with a baby!  This recipe is awesome as a base...I tweaked mine a bit as well and subbed half the flour for whole wheat and added ground flax seed meal.  I used a tbsp of oil as well and this ensured that my waffles did not stick.  I added a dash of vanilla extract and made a batch of carob chip and ones with blueberries.  They were awesome and not too sweet!  This will be my go to waffle recipe from now on!
