What Vegans Eat: Banana Vegan Waffles
Posted on 24 July 2016
During the work week, my meals and mealtimes are very regimented so that I can squeeze as much productivity out of my day…which is why I looove weekends. On Saturdays and Sundays, I have no set schedule, so if I have a hankering for waffles, then this girl is making waffles.
This waffle recipe is a modification of a Betty Crocker waffle recipe that I found a gazillion years ago. It’s the only waffle recipe I’ve ever needed and it’s gotten rave reviews from my friends and family. If cooked properly in your waffle iron, these waffles are crunchy on the outside, fluffy on the inside and have a subtle sweet banana-y flavor.
Over the years, I have used whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, and a whole host of gluten-free flours all to successful, delicious results.
Enjoy this recipe, Starlings, and we hope you check out our current pre-sale for our new Fly Away waxed canvas tote.
Banana Vegan Waffles
1 3/4 cups nondairy milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon brown sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1. Pour nondairy milk and oil into large mixing bowl. Mix dry ingredients (from flour to salt above) together separately, and then pour this dry mix into the large mixing bowl that contains the nondairy milk and oil.
2. Put banana in blender and puree. Pour batter into the blender (a little at a time, if needed) and blend thoroughly with the banana. While blending, preheat waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions.
3. Pour waffle batter into your waffle iron. Let cook for about 5 minutes, or according to waffle iron’s instructions (mine has a nifty indicator light that tells me when the waffle is cooked).
4. Remove waffle with a fork and brunch is ready, Starling! Serve with fruit, nondairy butter, peanut butter, jam, maple syrup, or eat plain!
Note: If you have leftover waffles, you can freeze them for later. To reheat, place in a 300 degree Fahrenheit oven for about 10 minutes, or depending on the size of your waffles, you could also reheat them in your toaster.
