Whole Grain Vegan Gluten Free Waffles

DSC 0011.1 Whole Grain Vegan Gluten Free Waffles

I recently went vegan for 3 weeks. I did it because I saw a couple of movies (one of them very popular) about the diet and thought it was worth a shot…just to see. I was expecting to feel amazing. Turns out, I already do. The diet did force me to get creative in the kitchen again and cause me to really think about where our food comes from. While on the diet, I created these. These vegan gluten free waffles are light and flaky. My kids LOVE, LOVE these vegan waffles. My youngest ate three (Belgian quarters) at one sitting and that NEVER happens.


1-1/2 cups whole grain sorghum
1 cups gluten free steel cut oats
1/2 cup quinoa flakes
2 cups coconut milk (homemade or So Delicious)
1 cup water
2 T apple cider vinegar
2 T vanilla


***Stir the above together in a bowl and let sit overnight. The next morning will be a big mushy bowl of goo. Steel cut oats are big soaker-uppers! Now…I will tell you the ingredients that you will add to your blender and the order to add them, however I recommend doing it in two different batches (so split everything in half). The first time I did it, I couldn’t get the stuff to blend all that well. AND, I found that I have to PULSE, PULSE, PULSE, PULSE (LOTS), and then just turn it on and leave it on.


2/3 cup coconut oil, liquefied
1 cup pumpkin
1/2 cup coconut milk
(grain mixture, from above)
1 t sea salt
2 T baking powder
1T cinnamon
1/2 T nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon powdered stevia


Bake in a preheated waffle iron.

    This looks very interesting and worth a shot. Do they stick to the waffle iron? Every GF Vegan waffle I’ve ever tried never comes out of the iron nicely!

      They didn’t stick to mine, but I have a Belgian waffle maker. I’m not sure if a regular waffle maker would be different or not? I hope you try them and have success!! :)
