This delicious gluten-free vegan waffles recipe was inspired by the popular Zero Excuse Coconut Rice Waffles
. These vegan waffles rely upon the oils naturally present in the almonds and coconut, and they utilize the sweetness of blackstrap molasses and banana. They have a relatively light density, crispy outside, and moist, banana-laden inside. Makes 6 (7-inch) round Belgian waffles. Enjoy!
Use full-strength coconut milk, not a “light” version that’s more watered down. Lately I’ve had more difficulty finding canned coconut milk that doesn’t have any water and guar gum added, and find that even “non-light” versions of different brands can differ in thickness slightly. Because of this, you may get better results by increasing the coconut milk by 2 tablespoons or so while decreasing the water by an equal amount, if you’re not satisfied with the initial results. You may also wish to whisk the coconut milk to break up larger clumps before adding to the other ingredients.
