Best Vegan Whole Wheat Waffles

We've made waffles pretty regularly since we got married. We even like to invite friends over for waffle breakfasts on the weekends when we aren't overwhelmed with projects (no really, it happens on occasion, stop laughing). I've tried a lot of recipes, everything from Bisquick to a version that actually contained yeast and needed to rise for an hour but this is by far our favorite recipe. These are light and fluffy but crispy on the outside. They have a hint of sweet and a huge helping of comfort. If you can't make your own and you're in the area, let me know, perhaps you'll just need to come on over for a waffle weekend!

Best Vegan Whole Wheat Waffles EVER


  • 1 Tbsp flax meal
  • 3 Tbsp warm water
  • 1 1/2 cups warm non-dairy milk (I use organic vanilla soy milk mostly)
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (I use Bob's Red Mill)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil (I like Nutiva brand organic coconut oil)
Preheat your waffle iron while you make the batter.

Combine the flax meal and warm water in a small dish and set aside.


Measure out the milk and warm it. You don't want it hot, just baby-bath warm.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.


Pour the warm milk into the dry ingredients (don't mix it yet). Melt the coconut oil and pour that in as well. Give your flax meal and water a little stir. If it looks like it is starting to get a little egg-like


go ahead and pour it in. If it isn't thick and slimy yet, give it another minute or two.

Once all the wet ingredients are added to the dry ingredients, stir them together just until combined. Don't over mix, this does bad things to waffle batter.


Pour the batter onto your waffle iron and cook as your waffle iron directions state.


This makes about 6 of these big thick waffles (above picture is 4 in the making).


Load them up with your favorite peanut butter, berries, vegan whipped cream and, of course, real maple syrup. Yum!!
