What would all of our delicious vegan waffle recipes be if no one had ever designed the waffle maker? Either batter, or relatively flat pancakes. We would live in a very, very different world indeed.
While some believe that devices akin to a waffle maker existed elsewhere in the world prior to this date, Cornelius Swartwout patented the first U.S. waffle iron on August 24, 1869. So whether you live in the U.S., where it’s currently National Waffle Day, or elsewhere, take a few moments to express gratitude for more than 140 years of waffle making joy. This might be through consuming a tasty vegan waffle, or skipping down the sidewalks of your street in an ecstatic frenzy.

This delicious gluten-free vegan waffle recipe was inspired by the popular Zero Excuse Coconut Rice Waffles. These vegan waffles rely upon the oils naturally present in the almonds and coconut, and they utilize the sweetness of blackstrap molasses and banana. They have a relatively light density, crispy outside, and moist, banana-laden inside. Enjoy!
- 1 3/4 cups warm water
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
- 1 cup almond meal
- 1 cup brown rice flour
- 1/2 cup tapioca flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 ripe, medium banana
- 1 1/2 cups canned coconut milk (see note)
- 2 tablespoons molasses (preferably blackstrap)
Whisk the ground flaxseed into the warm water in a medium bowl, set aside, and allow to sit for 2 to 3 minutes. In the meantime, sift or whisk together the almond meal, rice flour, tapioca flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Mash the banana in a small bowl. Whisk the mashed banana, coconut milk, and molasses into the water and flaxseed mixture. Continue reading
