Egg-less and oil-free these Easy Vegan Waffles are soft and tender inside and crispy outside. So easy, no need to wait for the weekend to enjoy!
This recipe is so simple and delicious, yet getting it right has been so complex because baking is truly a science.
What I was aiming for was a vegan waffle that didn't use flax seed and wasn't supper hard or flat. After many, many tries I finally got it. One of the biggest problem was the metallic taste from the baking soda. After a number of combinations, I finally found one that did the trick. A combo of baking soda, aluminum-free baking powder and a small amount of cream of tartar. When using baking soda you don't want to use too much and sometimes adding an acid is needed to get rid of the metallic taste, so I decided to use cream of tartar.
I made them with all-purpose flour, bread flour and gluten-free flour. The fluffiest were the ones made with bread flour, because it has more gluten protein. For those of you who need a gluten-free recipe, adding a small amount of oil (about 1 tablespoon) in addition to the apple sauce helps keep the waffles moist.
If you're one who thinks you can only have waffles on the weekends, you can make these in no time during the week. I would suggest mixing the dry ingredients in your bowl the night before. In the morning just mix in the wet and you'll have waffles in no time. Serve your waffles with syrup or jam like this No-Cook Strawberry Mint Chia Jam.

Celeste this looks like such a great recipe. If I were to make it could I substitute for the cream of tartar? It is hard to find it here.

These look delicious - I really need to go buy a waffle maker 🙂
I need a new one myself, the handle broke and all I have is a small tip of the handle left, but I just keep using it. I'll have to get a new one soon I'm sure. If you don't have a waffle maker you can make pancakes. Sam thanks for stopping by, enjoy!
This recipe looks delicious! Thanks for sharing.
Thanks, I hope you enjoy it, I made them for breakfast this morning. Have a great weekend.

Oh Celeste, you know I am a glutton for waffles and pancakes and these look so delish! You are teasing me with that fruit topping and the Strawberry Mint Chia Jam sounds like a great topping as well. Now I'm hungry for waffles! Oh the dilemma! LOL I had something else planned for dinner! ARG!
And what's great about this recipe is it is so easy and fast and even without the eggs it comes out super fluffy.
For mother's day this year the hubs and I made a whole brunch of vegan foods for my nana. I wish I knew about these gems! Great post!
