These vegan whole wheat waffles have a crispy crust that reveals a tender, delicious center. They are easy to make and full of fiber thanks to the whole wheat, but still light and fluffy. Serve them any time of the day drizzled with maple syrup!
Turn on your waffle iron so that it can begin to heat up. Turn your oven to 200°F (93°C) or heat a toaster oven to keep prepared waffles warm.
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and ground flax seeds. Stir to combine.
In a separate bowl, combine the milk, apple cider vinegar, and melted vegan butter. Stir to combine.
Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and stir until everything is incorporated.
Spray your waffle iron with vegetable cooking spray. Use a spoon or ¼ cup measuring cup to dispense batter into the waffle iron. Use the back of the spoon or measuring cup to ensure every section of the waffle iron is filled, spreading the batter to the edges. Close the lid and cook the waffles for 5 to 7 minutes, until golden and crispy.
Transfer cooked waffles to your heated oven to stay warm and continue making waffles until the batter is gone.
Serve warm with vegan butter, peanut butter, jam, maple syrup or your favorite toppings.
If you don't have coconut sugar, brown sugar can work in this recipe.
