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.

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!


These are so delicious! Super easy, flavorful, and fluffy. I made this with friends to celebrate the fact that one of them has a waffle iron that makes farm animal-shaped waffles, and everyone loved it. Thanks for posting!


I don't know if my waffle iron sucks or if I put in way too many blueberries (1 bag cascadian farms frozen blueberries, thawed), but mine didn't exactly come out right.  Although they looked all messed up, they still tasted good, so I'll probably try again, but maybe I'll double the recipe for the batter, but use the same amount of blueberries. Or just put the blueberries on top next time.


just wanted to add that i do usually leave the cinnamon out and add vanilla. this recipe makes 3-4 waffles for me. i made these yesterday after my last post and topped them with fried apples, wow! so good. i also made my own applesauce since i had a few apples that needed to be eaten.


this is the only vegan waffle recipe that comes out right for me every time. i have tried others and my waffles were gross. these have a good flavor just the way they are but i sometimes put a banana and nuts on top.
