Waffles are a popular US/Canadian breakfast, although they original in Belgium. American waffles are basically a pancake mix, cooked in a waffle iron (use one free from Teflon and never cook around animals/birds with high heat, it can offgas – keep these recipes away from pets due to toxic ingredients like dough, chocolate, nuts, spices etc).
Gluten-Free Vegan Waffles (Crowded Kitchen) use aquafaba (Latin for ‘bean water’) from leftover chickpea brine water, to make them light and airy.
Waffle batter can be made without eggs and usually are made from oil, salt, baking powder and flour, served with fresh fruits and maple syrup (choose an organic brand, free from bone char – maple trees asre not chopped down to tap the syrup). Vegan Waffles (The Veg Space) are crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside, the recipe is by a professionally trained chef. You can freeze and toast for an instant snack, or adapt with pecans/raisins, chocolate chips, carrot cake or chocolate walnut.
Gluten-Free Waffles (Minimalist Baker) contain aquafaba. This is a ‘vegan meringue’ made from the brine water of leftover chickpeas, which makes them light and fluffy.
Vegan Gingerbread Waffles (Minimalist Baker) sounds like a Christmas feast: pumpkin puree, molasses, brown sugar, ground ginger and cinnamon. Made with a ‘flax egg’ and plant milk.
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Waffles (Minimalist Baker) contain 2 whole bananas, so a great idea to get your daily fruit intake – even if you are also overdosing on the chocolate!
