These easy and delicious gluten free vegan waffles are the perfect quick vegan breakfast for your weekend brunch! Just 5 simple ingredients, super fluffy, undetectably eggless and dairy free, and perfect for all eaters and kids alike!


Units Scale
  • 3 cups (330 g) store bought or homemade oat flour (see notes for all purpose flour and gluten-free 1:1 baking flour)
  • 3 tablespoons coconut sugar or organic granulated cane sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup (80 g) unsweetened applesauce or dairy-free yogurt (see notes for flax eggs option)
  • 1 1/3 cup (320 mL) vegan buttermilk
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 tbsp arrowroot starch, or ground cinnamon for flavor
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil for waffle machine
  • Toppings of choice: berries, coconut cream, chocolate chips, nut or seed butter


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, and optional cinnamon and arrowroot (if using) together.
  2. Add in the applesauce , vegan buttermilk, and optional vanilla extract. Mix just until combined (it’s okay for there to be clumps!). 
  3. Heat the waffle machine and brush the cooking oil onto the waffle machine. Close the waffle machine, and let the oil sit there for a minute to heat. Make sure to follow the instructions for the manufacturer of your waffle maker, but typically, I give it a few more seconds after the light has gone on indicating that it’s ready. Please also make sure you’re heating the waffles to a hot temperature!
  4. Prepare the waffles according to your waffle machine. I recommend using 1/2 cup-2/3 cup batter per waffle. 
  5. Gently remove the waffle from the machine with a silicone spatula (never metal) and serve with desired toppings!
  6. See blog post for storage and freezing tips!
