And in the mornin’, I’m makin’ waffles! 

I say that most nights…lol. But who can resist with these fluffy delicious vegan waffles?!

No super fancy tricks to make these waffles fluffy, just some baking chemistry. Don’t be scared. It’s just apple cider vinegar and baking powder reacting…feel free to believe it’s all just magic – it’s way more fun that way ha!

Simply start by mixing all the dry ingredients – flour, baking powder, and flax…yup, whisk those 3 together and move on to the wet stuff. 

Then mix the 2 together and watch the magic happen.

You should see the batter bubble a little bit – this reaction is what makes the waffles fluffy!

Feel free to add in a bit of extra stuff to this recipe. I love to mix in some pumpkin pie spice or vanilla. You could even add cocoa powder! Chocolate waffles!? Heck yes!

vegan breakfast idea

While your waffle is cooking in the waffle iron, you should prepare your toppings. Because let’s face it, plain waffles are boring! 

I can never make waffles without adding on tons of berries. It’s more like I’m having a waffle with my plate of berries…not the other way around.

I just microwave frozen berries because it is way cheaper. Especially when you want to buy organic.
