I am so excited to be sharing these waffles with you… mostly because it means I finally had the most awesome breakfast which I’ve been craving for weeks!! Unfortunately, I made them at about 8 at night after a long day at work, but hey…at least it happened!!
I am super stoked about these because they are totally gluten free and vegan…not an easy feat to accomplish with waffles! I used a blend of buckwheat (hence the dark colour) and brown rice flour , accompanied by arrowroot powder . To get these puppies nice ‘n’ light I used club soda and flax eggs. I love the toasted coconut in the batter, and extra sprinkled right over top. I strongly suggest you top these with lots of maple syrup and banana slices! These gluten-free vegan waffles manage to be so nice and crisp on the outside and fluffy and light on the inside- which is exactly how I think a waffle should be! They are boyfriend approved, and Rhys called them ‘waffletastic’ as he ate about 3, even though he had already eaten a huge bowl of Pho and finished half my Pho for dinner bahaha boys…
I hope you can enjoy these on a relaxed weekend this holiday season. You could even make them ahead of time and freeze them for a quick yet gourmet breakfast in bed! I’m dreaming of that right now, but as I prepare to move to New Zealand, there is just too much to do to even have a second to relax!! It will all be worth it in 20 days though. I can see the beach now….
I added links to some of the harder-to-find ingredients above. If you don’t want to order online, look at your local health food store. If you are going to order online, I love iherb and the links above are my referral links…if you use code OKO712 when you check out, it can save you $5-$10 off your first order!!
