Are you on Team Waffle or Team Pancake? If you’re the former, you’ve come to the right place. If you’re the latter, let me convince you otherwise 😉

Not only are these Vegan Blender Waffles downright delicious, but they’re easy to prep, good for you, and made with only 7 plant-based ingredients + 1 blender!

That’s right, friends: you don’t need a single mixing bowl for this recipe! Simply pulse all of your dry ingredients together in your blender, add in the wet, and blend to form your waffle batter. Pour into your pre-heated waffle maker, set a timer, and enjoy!

It really is that easy.

Not only are these waffles fuss-free, but they’re made with simple and wholesome ingredients too. I’m excited to announce that I’ll be partnering with One Degree Organics throughout the year to bring you some delicious content, starting with these waffles! Did you know that sprouted grains are also easier for our bodies to digest and convert into energy? One Degree Organics has been sprouting grains for over 30 years, and is also committed to total food transparency and fostering a farmer-to-consumer connection.

I used One Degree Organics Sprouted Rolled Oats for this recipe – not only are these oats gluten-free and organic, but they’re also certified glyphosate-free! We’ll blend some of the oats to make a fine, fluffy oat “flour,” then pulse the rest into the batter to give these blender waffles a little more texture and bite.

A little almond flour helps to give these waffles their crispy edges, while a homemade vegan “buttermilk” (really just vinegar + plant milk) helps to give these breakfast treats a little more rise and body. I opted to naturally sweeten these bad boys with some maple syrup, but coconut sugar or brown sugar will work here too.

I like to top my crispy vegan waffles with fresh fruit and hefty pour of maple syrup, but chocolate chips or a nut butter drizzle would be great here too! However you decide to serve them, make sure you take advantage of those crispy little pockets 😉

A Few Final Thoughts:

  • I kept the waffle batter for this recipe pretty simple, but feel free to jazz it up if you want! Cinnamon, chocolate chips, or pieces of fresh fruit would be great here.
  • If you’re using an older non-stick waffle maker you may need to spray the mold with oil to prevent the batter from sticking. I used my new waffle maker and had no problems cooking these without oil – they slipped right out!
  • Meal Prep? Heck yes! You can easily freeze these leftover waffles and reheat them throughout the week. I’d even suggest making a double batch…we don’t seem to have leftovers very often

Vegan Blender Waffles

These Vegan Blender Waffles are healthy, hearty, and made with only 7 plant-based ingredients! A no-fuss weekend breakfast that’s also great for meal prep. 

  • Author: Caitlin Shoemaker
  • Prep Time: 10 Minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 Minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 6 Waffles 1x
  • Category: Breakfast
  • Method: Blender
  • Cuisine: American

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 ¼ cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 2 cup One Degree Organics Sprouted Rolled Oats, divided
  • ¾ cup Blanched Almond Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract (Optional)
  • ½ tsp Sea Salt
  • Toppings of Choice, for serving

Instructions

  1. Preheat your Waffle Iron and grease it, if necessary. Pour the almond milk into a large glass measuring cup, then add the apple cider vinegar and mix well. The vinegar will curdle the almond milk to form a vegan “buttermilk.” Set this aside while you prepare the dry ingredients.
  2. Add 1 1/2 cup of the rolled oats along with the almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt to a high-speed blender. Blend on high for 20-30 seconds, until the oats have broken down to form a fine, fluffy flour. Pour the vegan “buttermilk” into the blender along with maple syrup and vanilla extract, then process until a smooth batter forms. Finally, add the remaining rolled oats to the blender and gently pulse the mixture to spread them throughout the batter.
  3. Pour 1/2 cup of batter into each waffle “segment” of your iron, then close and cook for 3-4 minutes; cook time will depend on the heat of your iron as well as your preference on doneness. Once the waffles have cooked according to your liking, carefully remove them from the waffle iron with a rubber spatula and transfer to a cooling rack. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  4. Serve warm, and top as desired. Leftovers can be stored in the freezer for up to two months and defrosted as needed.

Notes

  • I have not tested this recipe with any other flour substitutions
  • Maple Syrup may be substituted with equal parts Coconut Sugar or Brown Sugar

  1. these are my new obession! i’ve made them 3 times in the past week (my parents really enjoy them too!) and have perfected the recipe to my liking. i added 1 and a half ripe banana as well as some walnuts and extra oat fiber i need to use up and it comes out great every single time! thanks so much for this easy, delicious and HEALTHY breakfast option!

  2. These waffles are SO GOOD!! They’re super crispy and versatile I love it. Won’t be using any other waffle recipe after experiencing the glory of this one ????????

    1. You can make them into pancakes, although the texture may vary a bit from normal pancakes.

  3. Wowoww these waffles were hearty and amazing!! I ended up subbing half the oat flour in the recipe for all purpose flour because I am not GF and it was perfect! Very nice light fluffy texture. Thanks Caitlin!

  4. Hi, I just divided the recipe by six to make a single serving – and boy was it good!!❤❤✌
    I didn’t have almond flour so used ground Almonds instead, and they came out soft and fluffy!????

  5. Love love love this recipe!!! Made three batches to freeze!!!!!!!! Do you think you could make these savory by omitting the maple syrup and vanilla?

    1. Oh wow, got your own waffle stash, haha! Leaving out maple syrup and vanilla would definitely make them less sweet. Got a particular use in mind?

  6. These are so flavorful and delicious. I used macadamia nut milk cause it’s what I had open and a little extra vanilla and they were good enough to eat plain. Next time I will cook a little longer so they are more crispy. These are going in the keep file for sure. Thank you!

  7. These are great! super easy. I’ve made vegan waffles before but I love the simplicity and wholesomeness. They taste delicious and I made them without vanilla extract. I had a happy accident with these- I made two batches, and in the first batch I misread and added 1.5 cups of almond milk. The second batch I realized my mistake and added the correct amount of almond milk… but I preferred the first batch! Just the slight increase of liquids resulted in a fluffier and crispier waffle. They did great at 4 minutes in my waffle maker.

    1. I loved the recipe Caitlin! I used 1.5 cups of regular milk and wheat flour they are slightly darker but love taste and texture! Mine took 3 minutes in my waffle iron.

  8. I made these this morning and topped them with your Super Easy Granola recipe and maple syrup. Delicious!

  9. Would this work well with a Belgian waffle maker? It’s the only one I have and I really want to try this recipe out tomorrow morning!

    1. You should be able to use a Belgian waffle maker just fine, cook time might increase just slightly (that’s also a matter of preference). If you try it out, let us know how it goes!

  10. These are delicious ! I’ve just tried these out. I did’nt have enough rolled oats so I replaced it with a cup of whole purpose gluten free flour. Perfect ! Thanks a lot 🙂

  11. Hello Caitlin,
    Thanks again for this wonderful recipe !
    Is it possible to use cow’s milk instead of plant milk ?

    1. Hi Loulou! As a vegan I do not cook with animal products, but I imagine that could work.

  12. Yum! These look amazing. Was watching the video for these with my 3 year old daughter and she really wants them now! Making them with her for dinner right now 😀

  13. Yummy! I’m looking forward to breakfast tomorrow morning with this delicious recipe! Perfect for the family 🙂
    Thanks for sharing.
