I first tried waffle at my nearby cafe and loved it. Then it tried their many time. So I decided to make them at home and ordered a waffle maker. Traditional waffles are made using all purpose flour, which is not very healthy. So I made eggless whole wheat waffles at home. The great thing about making waffles at home is you can control the amount of sugar and oil that goes inside the batter.
For Gluten free option, use gluten free flour. There are many options available in the market these days which is great.
I love to make this Vegan Whole Wheat Waffles during the weekend and enjoy it with fresh fruit, maple syrup and freshly brewed coffee. My friends and family also love this Vegan Whole Wheat Waffles very much. I love to make them when I have friends over for brunch. The best part it I have to make the basic waffles and provide few toppings options and everyone can add their favorite topping and can enjoy the waffle.
This waffles are very simple and easy to make. They are vegan and vegetarian. They can also be made gluten free by using gluten free flour. I loved the way they turned out and now I am gonna do many experiments using waffle maker. So many recipes are on the way!
The batter that I have made here is the simple version and it is totally customisable. You can add chocolate chips, chopped strawberry or even blueberries to the waffle.
You can enjoy waffles with jam, fresh fruits, maple syrup, whipped cream or nut and seed butters. I have topped my eggless whole wheat waffles with a drizzle of maple syrup and fresh berries.
