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:

The first.

Santa bribed with oatmeal cookies

Standard

Since we moved together we kind of have our tasks split in the kitchen. Uta loves to make sponge cakes and creamy things. I, on the other hand, prefer to prepare bread and cookies. One thing is sure: rarely are there days when we don’t use the oven at all.

It’s the 6th of December, which I learned is a special day in Germany: Nikolaus. (In Hungary and some other European countries too, by the way.) On the 5th in the evening all the German and Hungarian kids – no matter if small, big and even bigger, like us – clean their boots nicely and leave it on the doorstep or in front of the window. They have to be nice and shiny in order to be found.

The Nikolaus was here.

The Nikolaus was here.

Overnight Nikolaus (a.k.a. Santa Claus) comes and leaves fruits, nuts, chocolates  and small presents for the good children. If you were bad, Krampus comes and leaves you an ugly rod or might even kidnap you in his sack. Just to satisfy whichever comes, you might want to prepare some yummie cookies for them. And guess what, we’ve got a vegan recipe for you!

The original recipe was found on La Dimensión Vegana, we just altered it a bit.


 OAT COOKIES (V)

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup of soy milk
  • 1 cup of oil
  • 1 and 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of white sugar
  • 1 tbsp of vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/2 cups of flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tbsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tbsp salt
  • 1/2 tbsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 cup of raisins
  • 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts
  • 3 cups of oat flakes

Preparation time: 15 minutes (about 1 hour with baking and decoration)

1. Mix the oil with both sugars and vanilla until the sugar is completely dissolved.

2. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl.

3. Add the sugar-oil mixture to the dry ingredients and mix it using your hands.

4. Knead and extend the dough until you have a thin layer of about 0.4 cm.

5. Cut the dough using gingerbread forms and bake them for 15 minutes at 180ºC.

Uta decorated the cookies with chocolate, nuts and coconut flakes. It’s amazing with a glass of milk!
