Vegan Earl Grey Waffles 

I’ve tried multiple vegan waffle and pancake recipes and I think I’ve finally found the one. And yes I’m talking about love as this recipe is the perfect warm start to your morning.

I ditched the frozen waffles and replaced them with the waffle maker, which was the best choice when it came to morning breakfasts.

I researched a few ways to add tea into baking and while the most popular way was mixing it in butter (which isn’t called for in this recipe), I found mixing it in warm almond milk was my best bet (this sounded more appealing as well).

Vegan, gluten free, white sugar free 

Prep time: 20 mins

Makes 3-4 waffles (I only got through one, they’re very filling!)

I got the base recipe from The Minimalist Baker and it’s by far the best vegan recipe I’ve tried for waffles.

How To: 

1 1/4 cup almond milk + 1 tsp white or apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

1/4 cup agave nectar or maple syrup

heaping 1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats

1 3/4 cups gluten free flour blend (I blended my gluten free oats into flour)

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

pinch sea salt

I also added:

A few pinches of cinnamon 

1 tsp vanilla 

Two tea bags, tea emptied from bags and ground

Two full tea bags for the milk 

I started with the milk as it takes the longest, begin with mixing your milk and vinager and set aside for a few minutes to let it work it’s self into a ‘buttercream’

While I was waiting, I mixed together my dry ingredients in one bowl, and wet (aside from the milk) into the other.

For the dry, I ground up two tea bags worth of tea and added it to my dry part.

For the oats I added, I used these as they are by far my favourite gluten free oats.

For the earl grey almond milk:

I put the almond milk (mixed with vinager) in a pot along with two tea bags.

Bring to a low boil and then turn the heat off and let steep for 10 minutes more. You may have seperation from the vinager but stirring it mixes it back together. The smell of the milk and Earl grey was already tempting to have before it was even added to the waffles! I used a fork to press the tea out.

Remove the bags and add to your wet ingredients. **Only add a cup of the milk and keep the 1/4 left in case the batter is too thick.

I added the dry and wet together and got a warm aroma of Earl grey and vanilla. The batter should be on the runnier side but not liquidy. Mine was pretty thick and it made them a little dryer.

These take about 5-8 minutes to cook depending on your waffle maker. I served with fruit and maple syrup!
