Can You Make Waffles Without Eggs?

If you thought that waffles without using eggs was an impossible feat, then rejoice because this recipe skips them altogether. But how can we replace eggs when baking or cooking pancakes or waffles? There are so many amazing plant-based swaps available to us (check out our Best Vegan Egg Replacers for Baking article!), and in this case, flax seeds and water helped us achieve the same results.

A flax egg is the mix between ground flax seeds and water. After a few minutes it takes after a gel like consistency, which is the perfect substitute for eggs. You should give it a try!

What Are The Best Waffle Toppings?

Now to the good part! Toppings. Vegan waffles on their own are amazing but if you want to take them to the next level, toppings is the way to go. The possibilities are endless and we are delighted to give a few amazing ideas:

  • Fresh fruit: Some juicy blueberries, strawberries or raspberries (or all of them together!) would be ideal but feel free to experiment with whatever fresh and seasonal fruit you have available.
  • Vegan Whipped Cream: You can either make this yourself at home or grab a bottle at your local grocery store (they have great dairy-free options out there!).
  • Melted Chocolate: You can melt some dairy-free chocolate chips and drizzle it on top. Check out our guide on how to melt chocolate!
  • Caramel Sauce: Look for some coconut milk based caramel sauce or try making your own (it’s not a speedy process but it can turn out so good!)
  • A Square of Butter: You can always go traditional style with a square of plant-based butter and some maple syrup.

We hope you give this recipe a try and keep it in your vault of recipes to make over and over again! Have fun with your weekend or special occasions breakfasts!
