Delicious vegan waffles without sugar, eggs, or butter. You will be amazed at how good whole-grain waffles can actually taste! And - if you have toddlers around - they like them a lot too!
These vegan waffles without sugar, eggs, or butter are an absolute highlight to me. That's because it is not just a waffles recipe converted to vegan, where you replace the animal ingredients with plant-based substitutes. In this case, the waffles are made entirely from natural ingredients. And they taste really delicious!
Taste and Occasion
Honestly, I didn't expect a healthy waffle recipe could be this good. Because I used more or less completely different ingredients than I use for a classic waffle batter. So no sugar, eggs, butter, milk, and white flour.
When you compare the vegan waffles to the classic recipe, you'll immediately notice the mild sweetness and a gentle fruit taste. I'd say they taste way more diverse, simply due to the ingredients chosen.
That makes the tasty crispy waffles not only perfect for Vegans. In my opinion, they are also the perfect healthy waffles for toddlers. Without egg, milk, and butter, which some babies are allergic to. Naturally sugar-free and without any sugar substitutes - which the little ones don't mind at all! And also made from a light wholemeal flour.
You'll need fruit puree, a little oil, a plant-based milk alternative, baking powder, and whole grains. Sure, you can't compare consistency and taste 1:1 with the classic recipe. But I really like to eat them. Because I like the subtle sweetness and the fluffy dough so much.
How to make the Vegan Waffles
Let's get started with this delicious Vegan Waffle Recipe: First of all, mix flour with baking powder. Then, whisk the vegetable milk with the fruit puree as well as oil.
Now, add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix everything well to make a smooth dough. Add spices such as vanilla or cinnamon to taste and sweeten if desired (see tips). Then let the waffle batter rest for about 5 minutes.
Heat the waffle iron and grease well. Place about a quarter of the batter in the center, close, and bake. The waffles taste good warm or cold.
To make the waffles without butter, grease your waffle iron well, and add additional oil to the batter.

- For the fruit puree, pureed ripe banana or apple-banana puree without sugar is best.
- You can use spices like cinnamon, lemon zest, poppy seeds, or cocoa for flavoring.
