Ingredients for Vegan Strawberry Waffles

Ingredients for Strawberry waffles laid out on the counter.

Non-dairy milk: This gets mixed with ACV to make a vegan ‘buttermilk’. Use the type of non-dairy milk you prefer or have on hand. It works well with soy, almond, and oat milk.

Apple cider vinegar: ACV will get mixed with the non-dairy milk to make a vegan ‘buttermilk’. You can sub this out with white vinegar or lemon juice, if need be.

Flour: For this recipe, I used all purpose flour. I have not tested it with another type of flour yet.

Baking powder: This recipe uses quite a bit of baking powder- this is on purpose as it has no other rising agent. If you mess with this ingredient, I can’t guarantee success with the recipe.

Brown sugar: Waffles need a little sweetness in them, whether it’s brown sugar, white sugar, coconut sugar, or something else. My kids prefer brown sugar in these.

Vegetable Oil: For waffles I suggest using a neutral oil rather than applesauce or another oil replacement, especially if you don’t use a non-stick cooking spray on your waffles maker. 

If you know for sure that food won’t stick to your waffle maker, then feel free to replace the oil with apple sauce.

Vanilla: Vanilla enhances the flavor of this recipe- aka- it makes it taste better. But it can be omitted if you don’t have any.

Strawberries: Strawberries makes this recipe what it is- strawberry waffles. But, if you’re not a fan of strawberries, feel free to sub in another berry or omit the fruit entirely.

How to Store Waffles

Fridge: If you’ll be eating the leftovers over the next couple of days then store in an airtight container in fridge for up to 2-3 days.

Freezer: Freezing them is the best way to save them! Be sure they are completely cool, then stick them on a baking sheet and in the freezer to freeze. Once frozen, store in a freezer safe bag or container. Reheat in the microwave or an air fryer.

FAQ’s for Vegan Strawberry Waffles

  1. Should the batter be thick or thin?
    1. The batter should be thick.
  2. Can these be saved?
    1. Yes! They can save in the fridge for 2-3 days in an airtight container, or freeze and reheated in the microwave.
  3. How exactly should the strawberries be cut?
    1. The strawberries should be diced into small cubes. You can do this by thickly slicing the strawberries and then cutting lengthwise, then cut those strips in half or in thirds.
  4. My batter is too thin, how do I fix that?
    1. The most likely reason this happened is if you added more sugar or non-dairy milk than directed in the recipe, if you didn’t follow directions exactly, or if you forgot to dry your strawberries; then you would have excess liquid. To fix a thin batter, first try letting the batter sit for a few minutes to see if the flour will absorb the extra liquid. If it doesn’t absorb the liquid, then add more flour, 2 tablespoons at a time, whisk it in until you get a good consistency. This should solve your thin batter issue. If you don’t want to add more flour then use less batter, by 2 tablespoons to ¼ cup, when making the waffles so it doesn’t make a mess on your work surface.
  5. Are there any substitutes I can make?
    1. Yes! Vegan white sugar can replace brown sugar. Other berries can be used in the place of strawberries.
