Never waver over waffles. Fire up that waffle iron and make these perfect, crispy waffles.

About this recipe

Turns out the best plant-based waffles don’t require much fuss at all. You can whip up these easy waffles in just 10 minutes and enjoy their crispy and golden goodness. We’ve found that the secret to the extra crispy waffles is to add a touch of cornstarch – no one wants a soggy waffle! In this recipe, you’ll also blend non-dairy milk and apple cider vinegar to create a buttermilk-like base. Then, JUST Egg provides all the fluff and rise you need for a great egg-free waffle. In the mood for a different brunch favorite? You can also use JUST Egg as the egg substitute in your pancakes, crêpes, French toast and other breakfast batters.

If you have leftover waffles, lucky you. You can store them in the freezer and reheat them in the toaster or oven for a quick and delicious breakfast. Since you’re taking the time to wrestle your waffle iron out of that deep cabinet, why not double the recipe? Once you have a stockpile of these delicious vegan waffles in your freezer, you can use them to make protein-packed breakfast sandwiches. Just layer a JUST Egg Folded patty between two waffles or use these waffles as the “bread” in any of the plant-based breakfast sandwich recipes you’ll find in our cookbook. Now pour on the maple syrup and enjoy these JUST Egg waffles.

These waffles are best enjoyed hot and crispy, right from the waffle maker. You can also pop the waffles in a toaster or oven right before eating to crisp them up or store them in a 200°F (95°C) oven on a wire rack on a baking sheet until ready to serve.

Note: Throw any leftover waffles in the freezer – they’ll keep beautifully for quick breakfasts.
