Fluffy and Delicious

It only takes about 10-15 minutes tops to make the batter. On top of that, you only need one large mixing bowl to make them. And I’m sure you already have most, if not all of the ingredients that this recipe calls for.

*Note: These waffles are for anyone to make, not just for vegans. All you have to do is substitute regular butter and milk, and you’re good to go*

Are You Team Chocolate or Team Vanilla?

I’m all for chocolate waffles myself, but vanilla is a decent flavor option for waffles as well. By the way, do you prefer chocolate or vanilla waffles? I have to say – vanilla waffles are a welcome change from just only eating chocolate ones.

I have a couple other waffle recipe recommendations for you below. Check them out if you prefer a different flavor for your waffles instead of vanilla. You won’t regret trying any of them out..

  1. Chocolate Cornbread Waffles: I absolutely recommend that you try these waffles out! I know, I know – cornbread waffles? Yes, you heard right. These chocolate cornbread waffles are so good – as in super chocolatey, fluffy and moist.

    This is a vegan waffle recipe. But as with almost all of my recipes, just substitute any non-dairy ingredients for regular ones, and you’re good. These waffles are secretly healthy too (but no one will be able to tell).
  2. Chocolate Oat Waffle Recipe: Instead of cornmeal, these waffles contain oats. And what’s better than incorporating oats into your waffles? This waffle recipe is also a very easy one.

    What’s more, these waffles are also secretly healthy. They’re so decadent, fluffy and full of rich chocolate flavor, no one could ever guess..
  3. Easy Vegan Banana Waffle Recipe: All I can say about these banana waffles, is that they’re waiting on you to make them. And they can be easily made non-vegan just like my other waffle recipes.

My Favorite Unsweetened Dairy-Free Milk: Malk Almond Milk

I switched to using dairy-free milk in my recipes a while back. It just came about as a result of how easy and simple vegan baking is. The most amazing thing about vegan baking is that even someone’s who’s not vegan can’t really tell the difference.

Before settling on the Malk brand unsweetened almond milk, I tried other brands of plant-based milks. But I just preferred the overall taste and viscosity of the Malk almond milk. What really sealed the deal is that this almond milk is organic and doesn’t contain any additives or artificial ingredients at all.

Worth the Price

It may be a little more pricier than regular milk or other dairy-free milks, but it’s definitely worth it. I’m not sure if this milk is available in your area.

If not, just make sure that the dairy-free or plant-based milk you choose is free of any artificial additives or fillers. It should only contain pure natural/organic ingredients, which is way better for you.

Easy Classic Vegan Waffle Recipe Ingredients

Instead of buying a box of frozen waffles, why don’t you just see how easy it is to make your own waffles? I used a mini waffle maker to make these waffles. If you don’t have one, no worries – just use a regular sized one. It may just yield a couple less waffles..

The ingredients that you need for this easy classic vegan waffle recipe are listed below..

  • All-Purpose (regular) Flour
  • Baking Powder
  • Baking Soda
  • Salt
  • Regular (cane) Sugar
  • Cornstarch: This is used to add crispiness to the waffles, as they are low in fat (but still mighty delicious!)
  • Melted Butter: Make sure to use dairy-free butter if you’re vegan.
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Milk (Unsweetened Dairy-Free Almond/Soy Milk): Or just use regular milk if you’re not vegan.

I can’t wait to know your thoughts on this easy classic vegan waffle recipe. Thank you so much!

Calories 118.64 kcal


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp regular (cane) sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tbsp melted butter (dairy-free if vegan)
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp vanilla extract. Try the 1/4 tsp first. If you prefer a stronger vanilla flavor, add in an extra 1/4 tsp.
  • 1 cup and an extra tsp milk (dairy-free or regular)


  • In a large mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients thoroughly (flour-sugar).
    Add in the wet ingredients (butter-milk) and combine batter just till it’s mostly smooth. Some smallish lumps are normal.
  • Your waffle batter is now ready. Per your waffle maker instructions, you may need to spray it with oil first before adding the batter.
    I would recommend to just do this anyway, so the waffles won’t stick.
    Serve your waffles with your favorite waffle toppings such as a little butter and pure maple syrup. Enjoy!
