Vegan Whole Grain Waffles

When I first went vegan, I was told it was impossible to make vegan waffles. The waffle overlords said waffles couldn’t exist without eggs. Wrongy-wrong-wrong! This is my favorite waffle recipe, which uses flax seed as an egg substitute. The waffles are light, crisp, and delicious.

I love this recipe because everything is pulsed together in a blender. No bowls, no whisks…just a blender, some measuring cups, and a waffle iron.

Make a small waffle to start to be sure your waffle iron is properly heated and the waffles won’t stick. Be patient and wait for the light on the waffle iron to go out or you could tear your waffles apart when you open the iron. I use a fork to gently pry the waffle out of the waffle iron if necessary.

    I imagine you have heard this before,

    but the vegan food plates pics on your nice coverage of Lake Villa G.
    came thru upside down?
    Maybe it was just my laptop?
    Happy Monday to you ‘3’

    1. No, I’ve not heard that before… nor have I seen it. Can you be more specific about which photos you’re seeing upside down?
