3. Low Carb Vegan Waffles Recipes

If you are looking for something a little less carb-heavy, it can be a bit difficult to find a good vegan replacement that is not packed with overly complex, hard to find ingredients and niche vitamin additives that can cost a pretty penny and really add up. Fortunately, this relatively simple option will help make your morning routine easy and healthy in one go, providing a good, nutritionally balanced meal that will keep you ready to go until lunchtime!

The key in this recipe is to create a sort of faux-buttermilk by mixing the milk alternative and apple cider vinegar together. This will help create a good, smooth texture in the batter and produce fluffy waffles without the use of traditional flour.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk alternative
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp flaxmeal
  • ¾ cup gluten-free flour blend of choice
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp neutral oil (coconut oil works well)
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • Add in the faux-buttermilk and mix until a cohesive, smooth batter forms
  • Scoop per the directions on your waffle maker
  • Cook until crispy and done
  • Top as desired and enjoy!
