5 Ingredient Easy Vegan Waffles

The best recipes are often the simplest ones.

That is what I have come to discover as a self-professed lazy chef.

Last week I was looking for a great brunch idea to serve to guests on Christmas morning and I was in the mood for something sweet but fast to prepare. In less than 30 minutes I was out of the kitchen with a pile of steaming perfectly golden waffles.

If you have a sweet tooth and savory brunches are not your thing, give this recipe a try.

  • 2 cups¬† all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups unsweetened soy milk
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch of salt


  • Grease the waffle iron with a drop of vegetable oil and turn it on.
  • Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.
  • Add the soy milk, vegetable oil and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients.
  • Whisk the mixture by hand until it forms into a smooth batter.
  • Pour the batter into the waffle iron according to its instructions.


These waffles came out perfectly crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.
The secret ingredient is the vegetable oil in the batter. Be sure to not omit it or your waffles might not get crispy.
I would recommend serving them with pure maple syrup, chocolate sauce, berries and fresh vegan custard cream. Although they are tasty on their own!
You can reheat the leftovers, if there are any that is, in the toaster or the oven for a few minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

*Note: This recipe makes about 4 waffles. Double the ingredients if you have more company over.

*Cooking time may vary depending on your waffle iron
