Buckwheat-Oat-Applesauce Vegan Waffles: WP9 Version

Buckwheat-Oat-Applesauce Vegan Waffles: WP9 Version

Dave W.
This is a significant variation on the "Healthful Vegan Waffles" recipe also mentioned on this site. This is the version used for Waffle Party 9.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Course Breakfast
Cuisine Vegan
Servings 3 waffles


  • 1 1/4 cups buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 cup uncooked rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups soymilk or other non-dairy milk (unsweetened)
  • 6 tablespoons water (1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons)
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened non-chunky applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil or other vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon Ener-G egg replacer powder
  • 1 tablespoon unrefined cane sugar see note
  • 1/2 tablespoon molasses preferably blackstrap
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Combine the buckwheat flour, oats, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Stir or whisk until well blended.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the soymilk, water, applesauce, oil, egg replacer powder, sugar, molasses, and vanilla, and stir until well blended.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until well incorporated, but still slightly lumpy.
  • Cook on a waffle iron for 3 to 5 minutes, generously spraying both grills with oil before each waffle.


For the exact ratio used for WP9, replace 1 tsp. of the unrefined cane sugar with demerara sugar--this, however, will make only a very small difference. It will add a slightly more "molasses" flavor, which you can also achieve by simply replacing some of the unrefined cane sugar with additional blackstrap molasses.

  1. Delicious! This will be my new standard. I am not vegan, but egg free, and used regular milk since that’s what I had. I used white buckwheat, which was perfect. One note – my rolled oats are too thick and weren’t good for the texture (normally I love oats). Next time I will skip them or find thinner oats.

  2. Molly,
    Glad to hear you gave these a try, and were able to incorporate some cholesterol reduction and chicken friendliness. Fortunately there are a range of oats available; if you like them a bit less chewy, anything labeled as “instant oats” may come closer to the texture you’re seeking. Let us know how that works!
