An easy recipe for gluten-free vegan waffles, no oil added. Wholesome, naturally sweetened, oil-free and great when served with fruit and yogurt! Perfect for breakfast or brunch.


  • 1 tbsp ground flax seed
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2/3 cups rice flour (or whole wheat flour if you don’t mind gluten)
  • 1/2 cup oat flour (or unbleached all-purpose flour if you don’t mind gluten)
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 cup almond milk (plus 12 Tbsp if the batter gets too thick)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tbsp xylitol or 2 tbsp maple syrup, date syrup or agave nectar (or more, if you like your waffles sweeter)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • To serve:
  • Toppings such as fruit and yogurt
  • Equipment:
  • Waffle iron* or waffle molds*


  1. Mix the ground flax seeds and water in a small bowl. Set aside for about 10 minutes.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients until well combined.
  3. In another larger bowl, add all of the wet ingredients and stir to combine.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl with the wet ingredients, along with the flax seed mixture. Stir to combine.
  5. Preheat your waffle iron or your oven if you use the waffle molds. Pour the waffle batter in the waffle iron or into the molds.
  6. Optional for perfect waffles, spray the waffle iron or waffle molds very lightly with oil.
  7. Use about half a cup of batter per waffle to yield 4-6 waffles.
  8. Serve with (coconut) yogurt and fruit.
