Easy Vegan Classic Waffles 🧇

The perfect waffle is the key to happiness. Or at least momentary happiness, before you realise how much syrup you just ate. Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. It’s worth it.

These waffles are golden and have a satisfyingly crispy first bite, then as you hit the interior, they take you on a fluffy and light texture journey, all the while lovingly cradling your syrup of choice in its deep square pockets. Every bite is a party and a hug all rolled into one.

If you have a waffle maker, then these are so easy to whip up. If you don’t have a waffle maker, it’s time to invest people.

The best part about them is you can top them however you see fit:

Go savoury with scrambled tofu and mushrooms (trust us).

Go classic with maple syrup.

Or go extra like we did, with bananas, peanut butter, chocolate sauce, maple syrup AND our Nutty Cacao Peanut Butter Cups sprinkled on top 🍌🧇🍫🍯.

Most of the ingredients can be found in your cupboard. In this recipe, we substitute part of the flour in the recipe for cornflour - I learnt this trick from @connoisseurusveg. It’s a great trick to add crispiness that can often be lacking in a vegan waffle.
