Maple Pecan Waffles

     Sometimes you just need waffles... Nothing beats warm syrupy waffles on a cold rainy day, (or any day really) and if you are like me you don't make them often so that delicious plate of waffles comes guilt free.  Alas, I did not come up with this recipe but rather got it out of my amazing 1000 Vegan Recipes Book. (I linked it, so check it out if your are looking for an awesome cookbook.) These also make great pancakes so if you don't have a waffle iron don't despair.  Consider making these this Easter weekend or maybe treat Mom for Mothers Day, trust me she wont know they are vegan ;o)

  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour (I used whole wheat)
  • 1/3 cup coarsely ground pecans
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups non dairy milk (I use So Delicious Coconut Milk)
  • 3 tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp. vegan margarine, melted
     Lightly oil the waffle iron and preheat it.  Pre heat the oven to 225 degrees
     In a large bowl, combine the flour, pecans, baking powder, and salt. set aside.
     In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, maple syrup and margarine.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry and blend with a few swift strokes, mixing until just combined.
    Ladle 1/2 to 1 cup of batter onto the hot waffle iron.  Cook until done, 3-5 minutes for most waffle irons.  Transfer the cooked waffles to a heatproof platter and keep warm in the oven while cooking the rest of the waffles.


  1. Yum, Kayleigh! Eating waffles for breakfast (or any time of day) always make it seem like it's a special occasion. These sound delicious, and we can't wait to try them this weekend! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!

    Happy Earth Day!

  2. Looks delish!!! Can't wait to try them. Thanks for the post.

  3. I just have a Belgian wafflemaker. Do you think this batter would work in that? If anyone has tried it let me know.

  4. Thanks Gail and Chrissy!
    Jody, they should work fine in that. I used the george forman grill I have, it came with waffle plates. Let me know how they turn out! :o)

  5. I tried the recipe this afternoon. The waffles were very tasty. The recipe is a definite keeper.
