This basic, easy neutral vegan waffle recipe remains one of the most popular on this site. Because they work well with a variety of toppings, they’re a good option if you’re hosting your first waffle party or other event where you have a waffle bar set up.
Of course, they’re still fine with just a drizzle of real maple syrup and a dollop of coconut cream. Coconut cream with a few drops of vanilla mixed in…yeeeeahhhh! Or some fresh fruit as shown in the photo.
The recipe incorporates whole wheat flour for its additional nutrition and texture, alongside all-purpose flour to make the waffles a bit lighter. One of the tricks with waffles using all wheat flour is to mix the batter enough to get out the dry clumps, but to leave it just a little bit lumpy so they don’t end up “cardboardy.”
If you or a loved one doesn’t consume wheat, or you want to try something with slightly crispier outsides, check out the Naked Gluten-Free Vegan Waffles.
