Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: Vegan, Gluten-Free
Serves: 5 waffles
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk + 1 tsp white or apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp melted vegan butter (like Earth Balance) or sub coconut oil
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • juice of 1 small lemon (~2 Tbsp)
  • zest of 1 small lemon
  • 1 Tbsp agave nectar or maple syrup (or honey if not vegan)
  • 3/4 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/4 cup almond meal (ground from raw almonds)
  • 1/4 cup potato starch (not flour)
  • 2 Tbsp tapioca flour
  • 2 flax eggs
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp cane sugar (sucanat), or sub granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  1. Preheat waffle iron to desired level of heat - I prefer mine crispy.
  2. Combine almond milk and vinegar in a large liquid measuring cup or small mixing bowl and let set for a few minutes to curdle/activate. Then add melted butter, vanilla extract, lemon juice and zest, and agave nectar or maple syrup and whisk. Set aside.
  3. Add dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl and whisk until well combined.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until well incorporated. Fold in blueberries.
  5. Once waffle iron is ready, generously coat with non-stick spray or vegan butter and pour on about ⅓ cup of batter. Cook according to manufacturer instructions and then remove and place on a baking rack in a 200-degree F (93 C) oven to keep warm. Do not stack - keep them in a single layer to keep crispy.
  6. Serve immediately with desired toppings. Store leftovers in a freezer safe bag and reheat in the toaster for best results. Will keep in the freezer for up to a couple months, although they’re best when eaten within the first couple weeks.
  7. Suggested toppings: almond butter or vegan butter, flaxseed, bananas, blueberries, maple syrup.
