Light + Fluffy Funfetti Vegan Waffles

April 25, 2018

These Light + Fluffy Funfetti Vegan Waffles are so thick and soft, they’ll leave you believing that they couldn’t possibly be entirely vegan and dairy-free. Made with just a handful of ingredients, this waffle recipe is not only easy, but it is a fun, new way to eat first thing in the morning.

I can’t believe that it’s almost the weekend again. It literally felt like the week just began and already we’re at Wednesday. Yikes! Time really does fly.

Well, this past weekend was an extremely busy one for me. Between whipping together 6 recipes, food photography, work, household chores, and a host of other things, I can admit that a small “lazy day” is well in order.

I can picture myself lying comfortably on the couch, wrapped in my faux fur, sipping tea or maybe a nice cold drink, and enjoying some TV for ONE WHOLE DAY. Haha. How about you?

Back to reality. Luckily, I was able to enjoy my Sunday morning with these cute and fun Funfetti Vegan Waffles.

They definitely are the life of the party! Looking at these photos now, I definitely remember when I made these Vegan Vanilla Donuts with Sprinkles, which were a real favorite, especially in the blogosphere.

They are super fluffy, moist, and completely dairy-free, and truly are the perfect sweet treat for adults and kids alike, much like these waffles.

However, my original Fluffy Cinnamon Vegan Belgian Waffles are a sure showstopper. Personally, I love the thickness of belgian waffles, but hey! It could just be my own preference. Either way—-these vegan waffles are amazing! Haha.

Now let’s talk about this recipe.

I enjoyed the fact that this entire recipe was dairy-free. If you’ve been following this blog, then you’ll know that I try to minimize my dairy intake on a daily basis, which is why I enjoy So Delicious products.

Their products include an array of ice creams, milks, yogurts, whipped cream, and counting.

It’s just so awesome to have been able to find an entire brand that get’s it and allows me to still be able to enjoy the same sweet treats without compromising my mission to minimize dairy. WIN WIN!

Let’s dig right into this recipe, shall we?

  1. Preheat your waffle maker to desired setting (medium-high heat worked for me) and lightly grease your waffle iron(s).

  2. Whisk together the organic all-purpose flour, baking powder, sea salt, and pure cane sugar.

  3. Add the oil, milk, vanilla extract, and lemon juice to the dry mixture and stir together well until fully incorporated. Now, let the batter sit for a couple of minutes while it slightly thickens and rises. **NOTE: it will look a bit foam-like; don’t worry!**

  4. Fold in sprinkles, but DO NOT OVER-MIX!

  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.

For Vanilla Glaze:

  1. Whisk together all ingredients in a medium bowl until desired consistency is met.

  2. To serve–stack waffles (whole or cut), top with vanilla glaze and lightly drizzle with maple syrup, if desired.

Bon Appetit!

Tips & Tricks

SWEETENER: If you choose to opt out of pure cane sugar, you can always substitute for coconut sugar or pure maple syrup instead. If using pure cane sugar, ensure that it is Vegan-approved such as the Wholesome brand, etc. 
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.
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.
