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.

This is my favorite waffle recipe. I use almond milk because I try not to eat an excessive amount of soy.

They turn out perfectly, every time!

Great waffles!!  I used egg replacer and almond milk and added vanilla extract.  They were light and fluffy and very easy to prepare.  Thanks for the recipe! ;)b

I meant to say cook them longer THAN I thought they needed.  Also, I used less batter; the thicker they are, the more likely they will be soggy.  Less batter = crispy waffle.

I love this recipe.  I was looking for a recipe without too many ingredients, because I was taking the waffle iron to my in-laws holiday brunch.  I wanted my husband and I (both vegan) to have something healthy to eat.  Little did I know that I would be at the waffle station making 4 batches.  They were such a hit.  I think the key for me was to let them cook a little longer that I thought they should.  That took care of the soggy in the middle issue.  I did spray the waffle iron with pure coconut oil every few uses.  They stuck when I didn't cook them long enough.

I made these exactly as the recipe instructed and added chocolate chips.  I am sorry they stuck to the waffle iron, but the flavor was yummy!  Maybe I'll add a little oil to the mix next time.  I sprayed my waffle iron, but I guess that wasn't enough.  I'm not really a pro with the waffle iron either, so there may be some user error!

i made these this morning and they turned out as the best waffles i have ever had.  I mixed in pecans and decided to splurge and eat them with a little bit of real maple syrup.  I think the maple pecan flavors were what made them so spectacular, but regardless this is a great solid waffle recipe!

Absolutely perfect! THE NON-STICK SPRAY IS A MUST!! If the world were perfect, I would subsist off of these alone.

Great texture and flavor! I will add a tbs or two of oil next time cause they kept sticking to the iron.  >:( I used oat flour and  and added a tbs of vinegar to a half cup of milk and used water for the other half of milk. Oh - and instead of using 2 tsp baking powder, I used 1 tsp  of baking powder and one tsp of baking soda because I had added the vinegar. I love how simple this recipe is  and will be making it again - just gonna add some oil next time.  ;)
