- White Vinegar
- Unsweetened Almond Milk
- All purpose or Gluten Free 1:1 Flour
- Baking Powder
- Baking Soda
- Avocado Oil
HOW TO MAKE DAIRY FREE WAFFLES
Pour the vinegar in a large liquid measuring cup and pour in the almond milk. Let this stand for a little while- you’ll see the milk start to curdle.
In a large bowl, add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Use a wire whisk to mix everything together thoroughly. Add in the rest of the ingredients, including the milk, and whisk until smooth.
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit and turn on the waffle maker, spraying it with cooking spray.
Pour a bit of the batter in the center of your waffle maker and close the lid. Cook until the waffles are golden brown and crispy on the outside! Keep finished waffles in the preheated oven on a pan until all the waffles are cooked.
Top the waffles with your favorite toppings and DEVOUR!
HOW TO KEEP WAFFLES CRISPY
If you’re cooking up a batch of waffles for your family and friends, but want them all to stay crispy after they’re cooked, you’re in luck! Simply place a wire cooling rack on top of a cookie sheet and slide it into your oven. After each waffle is done cooking, place it on the rack in a single layer. This will keep them all warm and crispy so that you can enjoy them together!
WHAT TO PUT ON WAFFLES
Ok, so when it comes to waffles and pancakes, the topping options are ENDLESS! These waffles would be incredibly delicious with a big dollop of fresh whipped cream or coconut whipped cream if you need it to be dairy free! I recommend topping them with roasted peaches from my buckwheat pancakes recipe or some cherries and hazelnuts from my gluten free pancakes. Fresh berries are always a good idea too- I would suggest strawberries, blueberries and raspberries to bring some freshness to these waffles! Have fun with your toppings and enjoy!
HOW TO FREEZE WAFFLES
These waffles freeze really well! I recommend storing them in a freezer style zip lock bag, making sure to squeeze out all excess air. They last up to 2 months this way!
DAIRY FREE WAFFLES FAQ
Although pancake and waffle batters are very similar, there are some key differences. Waffle batter tends to contain a bit more fat, which helps crisp up those waffles. Waffle batter usually has a thicker consistency than pancakes, as well.
I prefer a waffle maker that makes classic thin waffles, but a belgian waffle maker will work for this recipe too. Keep in mind, though, that using a larger waffle iron will result in less waffles.
If you don’t have almond milk or prefer to use another type of milk, feel free. Any milk should work great for this waffle recipe.
The KEY to perfectly crispy waffles is making sure you have enough fat. If you cut down on the oil in this recipe, the waffles will be much less crispy.

Pour the vinegar into a measuring cup and fill with the almond milk for 1 cup. let stand 5 minutes. You will see the milk curdle.
In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Add in all the remaining ingredients (including the milk) and whisk until smooth and combined.
Spray your waffle maker with spray and heat your oven to 200 degrees (if you want to keep the waffles warm while cooking.)
Pour 1/3 cup of the batter into the center of the waffle maker and cook until golden brown and crispy. My waffle maker cooks in short cycles and I had to do 3-4 cycles at the highest setting to keep them super crispy.
DEVOUR with your favorite toppings!
