21 Vegan Brunch Recipes!

  • Author: Sonja Overhiser
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4 (4 standard or 2 large Belgian waffles) 1x


These vegan waffles are so light and fluffy, no one will guess they’re plant based! They’re easy to make with pantry ingredients. 


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour (or substitute all purpose)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoons neutral oil
  • 1 ½ cups oat milk or almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Strawberry Sauce to serve, if desired


  1. Preheat the waffle iron to the high heat setting.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon, and kosher salt until thoroughly combined.
  3. In another bowl, whisk the oil, oat or almond milk, and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix gently until the batter is mostly smooth.
  4. Immediately, add the batter (1 ¼ cups for a Belgian waffle maker and a little over ½ cup for a standard waffle maker) into the center of the waffle iron, then cook according to the waffle iron’s instructions. Remove the cooked waffles and place them on a baking sheet without stacking. Make the waffles to order, or place cooked waffles in a 250°F oven to keep warm.
  5. Cooked waffles can be frozen; place them in a plastic bag and remove the remaining air with a straw before sealing. To reheat, remove from the freezer and lightly toast in a toaster.
