Waffle January

I always tell my husband those days when I have coffee in bead can’t be a bad day. Watching how the city is waking up through my window while I’m still in my warm bead is the best. I recently got a waffle maker ( don’t ask me why it took me five years to buy one… ). Since then, waffle becomes one of our favorite weekend food.

I love the fact the recipe is so easy to mix up and doesn’t take too much time to make a non-vegan for the hubby at the same time. ( What we find difficult is because of our dietary difference when we want to eat together is take half a day to make a meal for both of us)

I like to use oats lour as a base. It’s not just tasty, but also you still get all the benefits from the oats. A little tip you don’t have to purchase oats flour. I usually just put it in a blender, in this way I only make as much as I need and don’t have an extra bag in my kitchen cabinet.

You can be as creative with the topping as with the dough from fresh fruits to nut butter or just the old fashion maple syrup. Can’t go wrong with it!

chocolate and peanut butter waffle with soy custard, maple syrup & granola

They have that crispiness you want in a waffle, they are thick, sweet, but not overly so, fluffy and just all-around a tasty breakfast option, or breakfast for dinner. I love breakfast for dinner. Anyone else like breakfast for dinner?


  • 1/2 peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate


  • 1 cup Nondairy milk


  • 1 tbsp Maple syrup


  • 1/2 cup quick oats

Baking & Spices

  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 2 tbsp Coconut sugar
  • 1 Pinch Salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract


  • 2 tbsp Coconut oil

Nuts & Seeds

  • 1 tbsp Flaxseed, ground

These vegan waffles use flax eggs as it’s a binder. And they really do a good job getting these waffles to do what I wanted them to. If you have never worked with flax seeds as an egg replacer  I promise it’s super easy and you add a little Omega 3’s in your waffles, no one can be mad about that.
