I followed the recipe exactly, and the result was good waffles.

But I made a second batch right away (big family) and here are the things that I changed to improve on the taste/texture a bit... the family generally preferred the second version (even though they were getting full):

  • I ground the cornmeal in a coffee grinder first (or just use corn flour!)... this greatly reduces the graininess.
  • I replaced the sunflower seeds with walnuts (much better aroma).
  • I used 4 or 5 dates instead of 2 or 3.
  • I used almond essence instead of vanilla.

and by mistake...

  • I forgot to add the coconut. The family unanimously said that they did not like the coconut taste in the first batch (though they love coconut in so many other dishes... Interesting.) I had to agree with them.


By the way, take special note: sesame seeds in the right quantity (like in this recipe) give a nice eggy aroma.


Thank you!


There is an excellent, simple recipe for pancakes/waffles in Erin Pavlina's 'Raising vegan children in a non-vegan world':

1 c. unbleached all purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
1/ tsp. salt
1c. soymilk
2 tbs. vegetable oil

*You can add blueberries, chocolate chips, flax seeds, bananas, etc to the pancakes/waffles for an added treat!*

I have used this recipe time after time and it's great.

I haven't tried the waffles submitted here by ''SignerRN'', but I did try these Erin Pavlina waffles and they are awful.  They stuck to my well oiled waffle iron horribly.  I tried to make the rest as pancakes.  They didn't stick to the griddle, but they tasted like salt.


im eating this right now and they are delish! i changed it around a lil bit. i didnt add sunflower or sesame seeds. i just added flax and coconut flakes and they are so yum in the tum. i put a lil cinnamon sugar and agave on top and its practically a dessert! thanks for the recipe! ::)


These are FANTASTIC!  I added almonds and served them with balsamic vinegar.


I am totally looking forward to giving these a try!
Love the no flour, no sugar recipe - and dates and maple syrup are my favorite sweeteners! :)


I thought these were really good too! They definitely  taste healthy but that's not a bad thing. I ate them with sliced strawberries and soy whipped cream on top. Delicious!


goodness gracious, where is my mind? I also added 2 tablespoons of maple syrup before blending. I really think that's it now. but give a try to my version if you don't like the original, I promise it's really good.


so I finally tried them this morning and they taste as good as they look. I don't understand why everyone else seems to be disappointed by this recipe.


This recipe came out HORRIBLE!!!!! I had my doubts but decided to try it anyway. Bleh!


This is not a *basic* waffle recipe. For a basic waffle recipe, refer to the recipe I posted by Erin Pavlina. Maybe this should be listed as 'Coconut/seed/cornmeal/date waffles'? There are a lot of eclectic ingredients in this recipe.... :P
