Easy Egg Free Waffles
- Leave a Comment
Waffles are one of the most requested breakfast foods at our house, and it is just as easy to whip up some egg free waffles, as any other waffle recipe. In fact, it is easier, since you don’t have to deal with cracking eggs and the mess they make! The kids like the fun geometric texture unique to waffles, plus the deep waffle square cavities can hold lots of syrup, which makes it a favorite breakfast request. I was worried at first that an egg free waffle recipe would not turn out to be as good as a traditional recipe, but I was surprised at how well our favorite recipe could be altered without losing the flavor or consistency of a traditional waffle. These waffles are simple and delicious, so that’s exactly what we call them: Simply Delicious
Easy Egg Free Waffle Recipe:
Simply Delicious Waffles (Egg free and dairy free)
Soft and airy in the middle and crispy on the outside. Who says you can’t eat waffles if you have food allergies? No one will know these are different from a traditional waffle. Simply delicious.
- 1/4 cup applesauce
- 2 cups soy milk, coconut milk or rice milk
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 Tablespoon brown sugar, unpacked
- 2 cups all-purpose flour (or whole wheat, or half of each)
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
In a large bowl, mix applesauce, soy milk, oil, and sugar until blended.
Add flour, baking powder, and salt, mix until blended and smooth, but do not over mix. There will be a few clumps in the batter.
Pour batter into a heated waffle iron coated with non-stick cooking spray, using amount of batter suitable to your waffle iron*. Bake until waffles are golden brown, (usually when steaming stops). Spray with cooking spray between each waffle.
*About 2/3 cup for a Waring Pro Belgian Waffle Maker
What kind of waffle iron is best?
Having a good waffle iron has made a big difference for us. In college my husband and I loved going to the cafeteria where they had a station for waffles and they used large flip-style Belgian waffle irons. We loved those waffles not only because they were delicious, but because the texture and thickness of the waffle made them even better. I highly recommend a Belgian waffle iron if you don’t have one already.
We use a Waring Pro Professional Beligian Waffle Maker and love it. We found it at Costco one year for about $30. That was a steal. I have seen them at Coscto a few times since then under $40. While it isn’t necessary to have a fancy waffle iron, having a good waffle iron will make a big difference in how well your waffles turn out and can also be easier to use and clean. But no matter which one you use, but sure to grease your iron between each waffle so your egg free waffles don’t end up stuck to one side of the waffle iron.
