Apparently it’s International Waffle Day today as well as Pecan Day! Therefore, I figured that this waffle recipe fit perfectly for both things, don’t you agree?

I couldn’t be happier to share this recipe. In all honesty, this recipe is the beginning of something new for Orchids + Sweet Tea.

OK, I know what you’re thinking—how so, right? Well, for one–I’ve made it more of personal a mission to dabble into a lot more GF (Gluten-Free) recipes as well as recipes that use different methods.

Secondly, I’ve been doing a ton of reflecting and have come to the conclusion that I’m going to start incorporating my love for Interior Design in my food photos and in an artistic way.

So, going forward, you’ll begin to see a lot more variety when it comes to flavors, styles, etc.

But of course, my motto of turning your faves into healthier options doesn’t change at all–and neither does the ‘goodness’ factor when it comes to your taste buds being satisfied. Haha.

You with me? OK, good.

Now that we’re heading into April full force (can you believe we’re ONLY a week away!?), I’ve been thinking a lot about Easter recipes.

Last year, I didn’t make any easter specific recipes, however, I throughly enjoyed these Strawberry Sweet Rolls with Lemon Cream Cheese Glaze, which are absolutely moist and sticky, made with a homemade tender dough, a sweet strawberry filling (chunks of strawberries included) tucked away in between, and a sweet + tangy glaze that adds a punch of great flavor to this recipe.

You’re sure to LOVE the flavor in these Sweet Potato Berry Breakfast Boats. Packed with velvety roasted insides of the sweet potato, tartness of the blueberries + blackberries, along with the nuttiness of the peanut butter and top things off—a slather of greek yogurt for a touch of sweetness; these breakfast boats are the perfect way to kick start your day, meal prep for the week ahead, or even to enjoy for brunch.

They always say that everything is better with sprinkles and these Vegan Vanilla Donuts with Sprinkles aren’t an exception. Super fluffy, soft, moist, and completely dairy-free, these donuts truly are like the perfect sweet treat for adults and kids alike, especially during Easter.

When it comes to waffles, these Vegan Orange Belgian Waffles are good to pass up!

Anyway, I’m so excited for new Spring recipes that I have been creating the past few days and in the weeks to come.

To be transparent, the growth hasn’t been an easy one. There have been days where doubt was greater than my faith in what I do and how far I can go, BUT my desire to thrive has kept me moving forward, in spite of.

So, my advice to anyone who feels like giving up on anything that they’ve been working hard on—–KEEP GOING! The best and greatest things take time so don’t give up on it because you aren’t seeing the results that you hope to see–just yet.

OK, let’s dig right into this recipe!

  1. Preheat your waffle maker to desired setting–medium-high heat worked for me!
  2. In a measuring cup or small bowl, add the Almond milk and apple cider vinegar, whisking them together and letting it sit for 5 minutes or so.
  3. Now, add the ingredients to your blender, ensuring that all WET INGREDIENTS (including milk-apple cider vinegar mixture) are placed on the BOTTOM and then the DRY INGREDIENTS on TOP. NOTE: Putting the ingredients in this order allows everything to blend well and become nice and smooth.
  4. Blend on high speed using a high-powered blender for a few seconds (15-20 to be exact!) until batter is smooth.
  5. Next, spoon batter into your waffle maker (1/4 cup approximately) and cook according to your waffle iron’s instructions.
  6. Once each waffle completes, add to a baking sheet and place them in the oven on the lowest setting (to keep them warm). Repeat until all waffles are made.
  7. To serve–stack waffles (whole or cut), top with sliced bananas, pecans, and drizzle with maple syrup.
  8. Bon appetite!

Tips & Tricks

NUT BUTTER OPTIONS: You can use Peanut Butter instead of Almond Butter if desired. Any smooth nut butter works as long as it’s Vegan-approved!
OATS: Ensure that your oats are certified GF (Gluten-Free). I used Thick Rolled Oats, but you can also use Old Fashion if preferred.
MILK: You can use any non-dairy milk for this recipe. I love using Califia Farm’s Oats + Roasted Almonds Milk, however, you can use Soy, regular Almond, Macadamia, Coconut, etc.
PECANS: In addition to using toasted pecans for topping, you can also incorporate it into your waffles if preferred. Simply add 1/2 cup toasted pecans in with other dry ingredients and continue remaining steps in recipe. See Recipe for Toasting Pecans.
STORAGE: Leftovers can be tightly sealed in a zip loc bag (once fully cooled) and either refrigerated for a few days or frozen for up to 2 months. To serve, reheat waffles in the oven on 400 degrees for a few minutes until warmed through.
REGULAR WAFFLES: For standard waffles (Non-Belgian style), this recipe will make more than 6 waffles.

    • Hi Sophia! I’m so glad to hear that you enjoy these! They are a go-to in our house!

  1. These are dangerously good. I had sweet plantains instead of bananas and woah. Also didn’t have any nut butter, so I used 4 tbl coconut oil. This is the best waffle I have ever had. I love you lol thank you!

  2. absolutely adore this recipe! the pancakes came out light and fluffy and taste absolutely amazing. plus, they’re made using wholesome ingredients! a whole family favorite!

    • Hi Katie! I’m so happy to hear that you and your family have enjoyed this! These waffles are definitely a go-to of mine also! 🙂

  3. Tried making these, followed directions, double checked ingredients. These were thick like paste, we added more milk and they were just dense and hard to work with. Flavor was good though.

    • Hi Natalie! I’m so sorry to hear that! Just to confirm, were the waffles themself unworkable and hard to eat or was it just the batter that was thick? Please note that the batter will be a bit thicker but the waffles should come out nice and fluffy.

  4. These waffles look fantastic¡ I love that you added oats for a more nutritious option. Need to make these waffles this weekend. Craving something like this for brunch.

    • I love using Banana in a lot of my recipes, especially when they are vegan or GF. It’s such a great binder! I hope that you enjoy these!

  5. I must say it’s one of the most amazing recipes of waffle that’s a flourless version. Perfect timing because I was hunting down for one for a very long time.

    • Thanks so much, Meghna! I definitely hope that you get a chance to give it a try! It’s so good!
