Recipe by  

"These waffles are so yummy it feels sinful eating them. Even my husband and 3-year-old who don't share my vegan eating habits loved them! You can use rice milk instead of soy."

  1. Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions.
  2. Stir water and flax seed meal together in a bowl.
  3. Blend oats in a blender into a flour-like consistency. Add flax seed mixture, soy milk, all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, canola oil, baking powder, vanilla extract, agave nectar, and salt to oats; blend until batter is just mixed.
  4. Ladle 1/2 cup batter into preheated waffle iron. Cook the waffles according to manufacturer's instructions until golden and crisp, about 5 minutes.

  • Cook's Note:
  • I melted 2 tablespoons spreadable fruit (fresh would work too) with 1 tablespoon agave nectar in a small saucepan. This, plus a sprinkle of powdered sugar, made it taste like it should not be good for you.

This is my new favorite waffle recipe! I would have taken a photo, but they were gobbled up before I could get out the camera. The only things I changed were: 1 Tbl of molasses instead of agave, coconut milk instead of soy, and coconut oil instead of vegetable oil. I also made a couple of them by pouring the batter and setting sliced bananas on top before closing the waffle iron. Oh so good.

I have never felt the need to write a review until I tried this recipe... Twice. Both times were big time fails and I followed the directions to a T. The waffles were crispy for sure since I had to add extra oil since it stuck. But the insides were gummy and wet. I couldn't even get it out of the waffle pan because it fell apart. This happened both times. The pieces I tasted were bland and tasteless. This recipe didn't work for me.

Fabulous flavor and fluffy crunchy texture without the use of so much oil, butter, or sugar. Yum!

I have a go-to vegan waffle recipe and this one just blew it out of the park. Our other one is pale, not terribly nutritious, and dense (though very yummy). These were lighter, crisped up well, and were so wholesome. I thought I had dome half whole wheat, half unbleached white flour but I didn't. Did all white accidentally. Would prefer the whole wheat. We use oat flour regularly so I knew that would be great. I did add cinnamon. I also doubled it thinking, if this only made 6 waffles, I'd for sure need more for my family of 5 (well, 4 and a 1 year old who only ate 1.5 waffles). I use a square waffle mater - two waffles side-by-side. Doubled, this made about 24 waffles. Wowee! I'm sure they freeze well, as waffles do. So, beware, for that size of waffles, it's making more than 6.

My husband and I loved this recipe. It has a light texture with a crunchy outside. I used soy milk instead of water, 1 part whole wheat to 3 parts white flour, sugar instead of agave and added cinnamon and nutmeg and added a tsp extra oil. I served it with fresh blueberries and strawberries. I especially liked the toasty light brown color these waffles had compared to other vegan waffle recipes I've made that were always a light pale color. This will be my go to vegan recipe for waffles.

This recipe was EXCELLENT! I substituted the whole wheat flour for quinoa flour and it still turned out wonderful. My daughter and I gobbled them up. Thank you for sharing!!!

Didn't like this recipe at all. Too wet inside.

Perfect, yummy and easy to make. They came out quite amazing looking with our MM shaped waffle griddle (my 3 yr old is obsessed with Mickey M). I'm new to waffle-making, so it was a joy to have these come out so beautifully. Thanks for the recipe!
