Vegan Waffles – with only 3 ingredients

Vegan Waffles – with only 3 ingredients

I have a new favourite recipe!! A really simple one. But let me start from the beginning.

We have been considering for a while to buy a waffle maker because of this video of La Dimensión Vegana.  Oat flakes, agave syrup and water, as easy as that. So simple and tasty! (Thanks Javi, you are our inspiration!!)

But my colleagues’ were faster and gave me a waffle machine as a present for my birthday. One of the best presents I have ever had!!! Since then, we’ve been experimenting almost every day. You cannot go wrong with any mix of the above three, but I found the below recipe the most tasty.

So sweet of them!! <3 <3


VEGAN OAT WAFFLES

Ingredients (for 10-12 waffles):

  • 5 cups of (gluten-free) oat flakes
  • 2 cups of warm water
  • 1 cup of vegan milk
  • 5-6 tbsp of agave syrup
  • 4 tbsp of oil
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of chia (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp of baking soda

Preparation time: 5 minutes + baking

Secret tip: Add 1/2 tsp of cinnamon.

Mix all ingredients in a mixer. Bake the dough. With our waffle maker we use about 2 tbsp of dough for a waffle and it takes ca. 5 minutes to get crispy from the outside and soft from the inside.

I’m really satisfied with the result.

These waffles have become part of our weekly routine. We also experimented with adding nuts or fruits, that also works perfectly.

Please note, the amount of liquids needed varies, depending on the oat flakes. The dough should be approximately as thick as a muffin dough. But don’t worry, it’s really hard to mess up this recipe.

The best thing is that you can eat these waffles free of guilt!! All ingredients are healthy – and the topping depends on you, really. Some of my (not so healthy but spectacular) creations:

Piña Colada Ice Cream (V, GF)

Standard

My dear colleagues left me alone this week… They exchanged our tea time for some cheap tropical cocktails. Christoph is off to the Seychelles and Nicole is doing a crazy wedding-marathon in Mexico. And me??! How do I survive until they’re back?

I prepare  my favourite tropical ice cream, of course.


 PIÑA COLADA ICE CREAM

Ingredients: 

  • 1/2 of a big ripe pineapple, mashed
  • 1 tin (400 g) of creamy coconut milk
  • agave syrup, according to taste
  • 1-2 tbsp of coconut flakes
  • 1 tbsp of rum (optional)

Preparation time: 10 minutes + freezing time

Mix all the ingredients in a mixer until you get a smooth, creamy liquid. If you have the luxury, put it into the ice cream machine, wait until it does the job and enjoy! :P Alternatively, pour the mix into a bowl, put it into the freezer and mix it every 20-30 minutes. Like this it will remain creamy, too.

The dough is a traditional Hungarian pogácsa dough, a bit altered. It was our first experiment with gluten free flour. Actually quite okay, I would say. And here comes the secret tip:
