Flax Egg Substitute
- 1 tablespoon flax seed meal/ ground flaxseed
- 2 tablespoons warm water
Vegan Buttermilk Substitute
- 2 cups dairy free milk
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice, freshly squeezed preferred
- 2 ½ cups all purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 4 tablespoons vegan butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Make the Flax Egg: Combine the ground flax seeds and water in a small bowl and set it aside until ready to use.
Make the Vegan Buttermilk: Combine the milk and lemon juice and in a small bowl and set it aside for five minutes.
Make the Waffles:
- Preheat your waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s directions.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the flax egg, vegan buttermilk, melted butter, and vanilla extract.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir just until combined– make sure not to over-mix! A few lumps are okay.
- Spray your waffle iron with nonstick spray and add enough batter to fill the waffle iron, leaving about 1” around the edge. In my 8” waffle iron, I use 1 cup of batter. Cook the batter until the waffle is golden brown and crisp around the edges– about 3 minutes.
- Repeat with the remaining waffles.
