The Starter should always smell sort-of-sweet. If it starts to get any dark mold on it or smells nasty, throw it out and start again. A liquid will separate to the top and it may be a bit darker than the white flour. Don't worry, it is still fine. The yeast will add flavor similar to the concept of Sourdough Starter. Add the other ingredients the next day and cook.
Separate the egg whites and save the yellows and let them come to room temperature, if possible. Beat the egg whites until they have soft peaks, but not too dry. Mix up the other ingredients separately and slowly add them to the beaten egg whites and blend them together gently with a spatula so as not to knock all the air out of the egg whites.

They do not need to be completely mixed, just nicely blended. Orton, :. Mix the dry ingredients separately and then mix the wet ingredients. Then add the dry mix to the wet. Mix until smooth. Chill overnight in the refrigerator. Take out mixture about a half hour before making your waffles.
Combine and prepare ingredients in the usual way, adding more water 1 tablespoon at a time if needed. Batter should be thick. These waffles do not need syrup and make a great on-the-go snack. This recipe was created when I found myself not only ingrediently challenged toward another lemon waffle recipe, but then I proceeded to forget to add the oil and butter that the original recipe called for.
Vicki Buttens says "The recipe was given to me 25 years ago by an old gentleman who got the recipe from his grandmother. I call them Milton's Waffles. There are a few steps involved but it is all worth it! Mix together 2 c. Let sit on counter over night.

I used my blender to mix the wet ingredients, and made these as Belgian waffles. My 3 year old and I loved them! We served them with butter and cinnamon sugar on top. This is the first time I am commenting, but my husband and I love your blog, and your cookbook! We have been followers for over a year now. I LOVE eating vegetarian at home, too.

Crisp buttery vanilla waffles
All thanks to you, Kate. Thank you for helping us on this journey to cook great, healthy, nourishing, delicious meals. Great question! Yes, canned pumpkin. Or, you can make fresh. But I used canned for this. Thanks for your support. Made this as an easy late night dessert. It was quick, easy, and delicious! It hardly needed a topping, but if I had whipped cream I think it would have suited best.
Additional syrup was too sweet for my taste. This was SO fabulous! My father, who usually barely eats one pancake, at an entire Belgium this morning. Of course, moderation and what you put on them. Hope this helps! My 2 year old loves these waffles! So much so that I make double batches and freeze them for her breakfast during the weekdays when we are short on time in the morning.
I just make the waffles smaller, measuring them out with a large cookie scoop. They turn out to be the perfect size for her and look like snowflakes: Thanks! I just made these waffles. The texture is beautiful in the inside and the outside. I topped with with pure maple syrup, bananas and chopped walnuts. I felt they are crispier than the non-pumpkin gluten free waffles, which I also love! We will definitely be making this during the fall. If you could let me know, that would be amazing!
Best waffle recipe ever! Seriously perfect balance of flavors. Much more robust and sustaining than standard flour waffles. These are wonderful. They came out wonderful. So good!! Made exactly per recipe. It helps the texture and to ensure the liquid soaks up correctly. These are amazing and reheat beautifully in the toaster oven!!
Will be making more batches to freeze and share with friends! For my personal taste the spices were a little much the first time so I doubled the recipe this week except for the ginger, nutmeg, and allspice and it was perfect! Thank you so much for sharing! Made these today and they were absolutely amazing. Reminds me of gingerbread. Thanks for such a great recipe. Definitely a keeper. I made this pumpkin waffle recipe. It was delicious! I made a few changes the second time I made it. I doubled up the cinnamon and vanilla and I used 1 teaspoon baking soda and 2 teaspoons baking powder instead of 1 tablespoon baking powder.
It came out light and crispy on the outside and soft inside!! These are great! We are so glad everyone enjoyed these! Next time, would you mind leaving a rating with your review? Thanks so much! Almost every weekend, really. Delicious and easy to prepare. All had good results. I add vanilla, cinnamon, and ginger. Very good recipe. This is actually good I made for my mom on her birthday and she loved it she was surprised it was so good.
Thanks so much for the lovely review, Kimia. What a great daughter you are! We are so glad your mom enjoyed these! I made these for a group lunch this week. I made two versions, a savory one with lemon and thyme, and a sweet version with dried blueberries. This is a very good recipe and it it customizable as mentioned. Based on feedback from several people I made sure the waffle iron was really hot before starting and I let the batter sit for at least 15 minutes before I started.
Thanks for the vegan gluten-free option! I have one question, when I make the batter it comes out too thick to blend dry with wet ingredients. Hi Lisa, adding more milk is perfect! One idea is that we may have different definitions of heaping. Hope that helps! The taste was amazing but I used the metric measurements that were given and the batter was the consistency of bread dough. Could do with amending the metric measurements of flour I think? Hi Zara! Instead of using apple cider vinegar and almond milk to make the buttermilk, would lemon and almond milk yield the same results?
Let us know how you make out! I loved the crispy outside! Very flavorful! This is my first attempt at any vegan gluten-free waffles. I used the Arrowhead Mills gluten free baking mix and it had a great flavor. My coconut oil solidified I suppose because my maple syrup had been refrigerated. Also, my almond milk never curdled. I added more vinegar and it still did not. Went ahead with recipe anyway. Still tastes good! I followed the recipe exactly but the batter was too thick. So, I added more milk.
Suspect the measurements for the flour and the milk should be reversed. I cannot eat Oats. Is there a function in the baking process that requires them? Wondering if there would be a substitute. Hi Kristin! Made a batch of these tonight for a group of non-vegan friends…they all raved about how good they were! I used all purpose instead of a gluten free mix none of us have a gluten intolerance and added some cinnamon to the dry ingredients and vanilla to the wet ingredients before mixing.
I had no problems with doughy centers or sticking to the waffle maker but i thoroughly sprayed the waffle makers first. I would probably double the recIpe next time as it made just enough for one each and we all would have had a second! Highly recommend this recipe though! Okay, I am savoring each bite of one as I write, these are delicious! My husband is in heaven…..
I used flax seed meal, vanilla, coconut oil and maple syrup as you suggested. I only had soy milk and it worked just fine. I just got the same waffle maker as you have and this is my first time making waffles in all my 62 years of life. They came out perfect! I am so pleased! I have one question.
Could a double batch of batter be made and then kept in the fridge to keep on hand for the morning? Or is it just better to freeze them. I love how crispy they are outside and want to make sure if they are frozen they will be equally, delectably crispy out of a toaster. At any rate, thank you so much!! This is a great recipe. They are so easy to make, and taste great! I love that this and so many of your recipes are made with ingredients I have on hand. It worked fine. I added vanilla, cinnamon, chopped pecans. The batter seemed a bit thick, maybe because of the flour blend difference, so I added some extra almond milk.
Hi there, I am unable to have apple cider vinegar, or citrus fruits since lemon juice is often used as a substitute. Would it be fine to omit the ACV altogether? I will use it as a last resort :. Hi Melissa! Good luck!
I used all the ingredients except the last two on the addon list. I found the batter was a little too thick, but adding some water made it perfect. I could have made five waffles instead of four. I had one for my breakfast and put the rest in the fridge. Reheat in the toaster and they look better than store-bought, brown and crispy. Thank you for this recipe. I will make a cranberry raisin sauce for the rest. Non-stick spray resolves this completely.
This is my go-to recipe for waffles. Tastes great and perfect texture. BUT, like others have pointed out, the batter is far too thick. I have to believe there is an error in the recipe. I simply add more almond milk to fix the issue. The default amount is for 6 waffles—which calls for 1. I also added a tablespoon of ground flax, to help hold it all together. Made this recipe multiple times…everytime these waffles have crisped and completely stuck to the waffle iron! Each time we end up making pancakes with the batter instead. That being said, we have made several of your other recipes and love them!
These are the best! Thank you!! Assuming you did not use the suggested homemade GF flour mix recipe, the particular mix you used may have led to very thick batter and waffles that were uncooked in the center. It is probably not your waffle maker. Some flour blends will be more absorbent than others and yield a thicker batter. The batter was somewhat thick but workable I added some extra milk , and the waffles were crisp and delicious. I had even added some ground flax seed and unsweetened coconut flakes.
I had to add lots of extra milk, and be sure to spread the batter very thinly on the waffle maker so they would turn out thin enough and somewhat crispy. Batter still quite thick but I spread it on thinly to waffle iron and the waffles were delicious. There was another commenter who doubled the liquid for better consistency so this is a similar method.
I used coconut oil, maple syrup, and then soy milk instead of almond allergies , and added cinnamon and flax seed. Overall this is a great recipe. I made this today and was so excited to have waffles! Admittedly, I am not gluten free so I used regular flour, but all other ingredients were the same. I added cinnamon and vanilla which were both great additions!
Regarding gluten free flour blends, I almost always find the resulting batters to be much thicker and stickier. Usually using less than flour than a recipe calls for, and then adding more until you get the right consistency is a good way to go about things. Oh, how my excitement was mis-placed! I will admit that after hours of research in the comments, I made sure I lowered my dosage of specific items. This mix had all the flours everyone needs and xanthan gum in it so I only use 1 cup of this mix, 3 tbsp of Olive Oil, Pinch of Salt.
All my waffles where crispy and fluffy where they needed to be!
Bacon Cornmeal Waffles With Brandied Peaches | The Joy of Cooking
And came Right out the waffle maker with no trouble. Hello — I cannot eat oats nor gluten free oats. Is spelt flour a good substitute for these? Absolutely love this recipe, having a vegan and gluten free household and been making it every week for months now. Serve with Korean fried chicken style cauliflower and broccoli in spicy-sweet sticky sticky sauce and yum!
I will recommend to every waffle eater I know from now on. Man, that was one delicious breakfast. I just made this recipe this morning and only altered unbleached Arrowmills all purpose flour fo the GF blend used in the original recipe. This is my 2nd time main these waffles and my batter always comes out gummy and super thick, almost like cookie dough.
Hope this helps! Can all purpose flour be substituted instead of gluten free blend? And will it make it a denser waffle? Hi Lily! You totally can. Add a little less at first since gluten-containing flours tend to be a bit more absorbent. I made this with my son yesterday morning, they were super delicious. However no matter how much oil I put on the waffle maker they stuck really bad. So we ended up eating half pieces of waffle LOL any advice?
Sometimes vegan and gluten-free waffles can be tricky for sticking to irons. Otherwise, did you sub any ingredients out, or use something other than recommended? Hmm, not sure! Did you make any substitutions? Normally we just use regular oats and all-purpose flour. We only use gluten-free ingredients when making it for gluten-intolerant people. When we did use gluten-free ingredients, the people were excited to find out that they were crispy.
These were SO good!! Thanks for the recipe? I think I may have gone wrong somewhere because mine ended up being quite dense and rubbery. Anyone know what may have gone wrong? Hi Deirdre! Try this new recipe! Hi, Thanks for posting this recipe. We have been looking for a good crispy waffle and this is it! I ate one of them plain as well, delish. I knew minimalist baker would get it right, she always does. We did use a hand blender to mix it up well. My batter was on the runny side, but it worked great. Also the waffles were very light and fluffy so we could eat more than the usual amount.
Thanks for the recipe. Batter was way too thick and waffles took over 15 minutes each to cook, and they turned out pretty rubbery. Did you happen to make any substitutions or changes to the recipe? The flavor on these is really nice. But they come out a bit hard.
17 Genius Things You Can Make in a Waffle Iron
These waffles are great! I just made them and the recipe went without a hitch. My 3 year old has a waffle in each hand and is dance-eating. Reading this recipe in Australia, and I struggle to find gluten feee oats or oat flour here.
Can I use normal plain gluten free flour and quinoa flakes inplace of the oats and oat flour? Hi Andrea! Can I make the batter for this waffle the night before?
Hi Reiko! You should be able to make the batter the night before, yes. As always, these are amazing. Dana you are wonderful. Will be making these again soon!!! I doubled and it was a bit dense so I made a little extra almond butter milk and added it in. So delicious!!! We added flax meal which may have been the culprit , Enjoy Life chips, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Definitely will be a recipe to return to; thanks, Dana! We use gluten-free oats! These were crispy and delicious! Instead of wasting it was still crispy and good I put almond butter and made a little waffle sandwich.
So good! Froze some like that too as my 7 year old will eat it like a dessert. Great idea, Barb! Yes, if they are not cooked quite long enough, they may separate. Also, we had to recently replace our waffle iron for a better model because our old one had lost its nonstick surface and was sticking like crazy no matter how much oil we used.
Thanks for the recipe! Turned out great : Love, love, love your website! Hi Astrid! Sorry about that! Okay this went terribly wrong. When Iixed all the ingredients together everything was super super dry. Like really crumbly. I used coconut flour though. I added more milk to make it a bit creamier, but everything got stuck in the waffle iron. No chance to get a waffle out of it. I am not a fan of this recipe.
The batter is very thick, it sticks to the waffle iron yes, I sprayed it with cooking spray , the center does not cook, they fall apart. I finally added 2 eggs and mooooore milk. So I plopped them on the pancake griddle and am trying to make biscuits out of the batter. Sorry you had problems here! Did you leave the waffle to cook long enough? I just made these. Half is stuck to the top and half to the bottom.
So bummed. Any thoughts? Hi Becky! I am thinking that you may be opening It too soon. Next time, give them a bit more time before opening and that should help! Hi Dona. Thanks for the lovely recipe, I tried it and waffles turned up very nice. I want to know about any waffle irons which cooks waffle perfectly.
I grease the waffle iron both sides, and uses any oil to grease. So great! But fantastic. Definitely referring back to this when I want waffles again! Loved these waffles!! I used homemade oat milk and sunflower oil instead of almond milk and olive oil. My family loved them! I just bought a waffle maker, and made my first batch of waffles today from this recipe, and they were delicious, cooked through in no time, crispy, and just plain good.
I used all-purpose flour, and added just over 1 cup of that, based on previous comments. Only got 4. Love the idea of toasting waffles on a weekday morning. I use this recipe when I make vegan chickn and waffles. The first time I made it, I was impressed with the flavor but they turned out a little dense so the next time I made them, I used more vegan buttermilk so the batter was thinner. Light and crisp on the edges. This is definitely my go to waffle recipe now!
Thank you, Dana! Are the calories on this recipe for an entire waffle? Just wondering what a serving is, because I was only able to make three waffles on the iron or 12 pieces. I was wondering if organic soy milk can be used in this recipe instead of almond milk? Im not sure if there will be a different reaction when combining apple cider vinegar and soy milk. These waffles look delicious! I would like to make them over the Christmas-holidays.
Such a good recipe! Best waffle recipe i have tried so far that is vegan. I added in chopped banana flax seed vanilla and some peanut butter in the mixture and they turned out nice and crispy and didnt stick at all. The whole family loved them. But last week I made your one bowl banana bread and it was an epic fail! I even baked it for way more than directed and it was still very wet and gummy inside.
Today I made these waffles and they were a disaster! The batter was way too thick almost like quick bread dough , they stuck miserably in my non-stick waffle iron, and they were, of course, very uncooked in the middle and too browned on the outside by the time I upped the cooking time.
I use Namaste brand that Costco carries. After the first one, I tried to thin the batter, but they still were oddly chewy and stuck like mad. These are the best waffles I have ever made or eaten!! Thank you so much. I love everything you do!! I hade to scrape everything off :D Maybe I turned the heat too high or what could it be? This recipe is my 2nd attempt at a gluten free waffle recipe today 1st attempt failed horribly.
I made your Gluten Free flour recipe and used it to make these waffles. I followed the directions exactly using coconut oil and honey. The batter was so thick as thick as if not thicker than bread dough but I proceeded with cooking them anyway. I oiled my waffle iron, added the batter and let it cook for a few minutes. The batter was so thick that the lid was popping up so I held it down.
It was just super dense and heavy. It tasted really good but it was kinda hard to chew. Now it is sitting in my stomach like a rock!! My daughter was just diagnosed with an oat allergy. Do you think I could sub in quinoa flakes for the oats? I made these this morning for my vegan son 24 and my non -vegan husband. I even included the apple cider vinegar. I love that it had oatmeal in it.
See a Problem?
My son had smelled me making waffles last week for my church and he was missing waffles and this was the perfect solution. They came out so good, that I might not even try the almond milk — it was perfect just as it was. I made this yesterday. Very runny even after putting in the refrigerator. I must have used the wrong coconut milk? Maybe I was only supposed to use the hardened part because I did put in the whole can…. These are absolutely delicious, thanks so much for sharing!! The BEST waffles i have made! I adjusted the gf flour blend a little used sorghum in place of white rice an used arrowroot starch in place of tapioca also added the 1 tsp xanthum gum.
Also added the tablespoon flax , cinnamon and vanilla to the batter — so so good!!! I followed this recipe exactly, but they never held together in the waffle iron and were a big mess. How do you get them to hold like normal waffles? I made these this morning and when I had the batter all together, I questioned if they would turn out. It was so thin and all the oats kinda bunched in the center of the waffle maker. I used bobs red mill gluten free flour but otherwise followed the recipe to a T. Once cooked, I was surprised they looked okay.
I allowed them to cool and then gave it a try. They had a slight crunch to them, almost like they were deep fried. My first thought, these taste like fair fried dough! My daughter requested to try and proclaimed I make the best waffles! Im not usually the type to leave comments but these are too good to be silent.
They are really fluffy and light. I did make a little adjustment. I add 1 tsp of lime juice or you can do lemon juice to the almond milk because I am allergic to apple. I got that idea from the best vegan biscuit recipe on this blog. And vanilla. My whole family really enjoyed them. I didnt use gluten free flour, i popped a bunch of extra raisins cinnamon and vanilla in there, fresh bananas on top.
Thanks for this great recipe! It ticks so many boxes and the waffles are absolutely delicious and crisp on the outside. I used a mixture of oat and rice milks, avocado oil and added flax and vanilla. Came out super good and will make these again :. Added vanilla and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Hi there — making these today, thanks for the recipe! Just wanted to let you know your recipe is requiring 2 pages to print a small little line, if you reformat you can save your readers lots of paper :. I added a dash of cinnamon and flax to the mix, just to make sure the binding was right.
Added fresh blueberries and topped with roasted pecans. Seriously so delicious! I am so glad this was such a hit!! Hi my kids loved the taste of these waffles but I had such a hard time getting them out of the waffle iron. Any tips? I used a blend of coconut flour and rice flour along with the ground oats. The baking soda was the only taste I could detect, resulting in having to drown the waffle in maple syrup. It was a strange crumble yet crunchy consistency and was hard to move to the plate.
All the other reviews seem good so i guess i did something wrong…. You are either born a French toast, pancake, or waffle person. I was used to ordering waffles as a dessert at restaurants and one day I realized that they might be not vegan. I looked up on this on Google and found that most of the time they are not. OMG, it thought then and started being more aware of what I eat in restaurants. I am vegan, obviously. This article here explains well what to be aware of when choosing waffles: veganmeter.
And thank you for this great recipe. I got myself a waffle pan already and am experimenting. The next experiment is your recipe :. These were petty yummy but VERY dense. Did I do something wrong? Anyway to make them lighter and fluffier? Added the cinnamon and flax. They are delicious!! Thank you for another great recipe. These were great! I used coconut oil, and the oil melted outside of my pan, it pooled and just leaked all over the place. It was quite surprising. Next time I guess I would use a different oil or use less coconut oil. They were delicious plain or topped with earth balance, maple syrup, coconut whip.
Some were a little soft, so recommend crisping up in the oven while making the rest of the waffles. Can I use another vinegar like rice vinegar? And for milk can I use lactose free milk or it need to be plant milk? Tried this and followed the recipe but the batter was so thick it was like paste. Added more almond milk to help thin it out, poured it into waffle maker. Waffles felt super heavy and not cooked in the middle.
What did I do wrong? Tasted great but not easy to eat with a fork and knife plus not worth saving the leftovers because they got even tougher once they cooled. Any help to make these better but regular waffles not GF? What consistency do you recomend the batter be for the future.
