These waffles make us smile. Not only are they a regular on our breakfast menu; they make it to our lunch and dinner menu on a pretty regular basis as well. Real maple syrup and fresh fruit or berries will elevate these waffles to a whole other level of yumminess.
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 cups nondairy milk
1/4 cup water
1 cup organic applesauce
1/3 cup melted vegan butter
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
nonstick cooking spray
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in the milk, water, applesauce, melted butter, and vanilla until well incorporated. Don't over mix; the batter should be slightly lumpy. Set it aside, and preheat your waffle iron.
Spray the preheated waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray. Add about 1/2 cup of the batter, or the amount suggested by the manufacturer. Use a rubber spatula and spread the mixture to within 1/4-inch of the edge, then close the lid. Cook the waffle according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Serve with fresh fruit or berries, and warm maple syrup. For added sweetness, dust with powdered sugar just before serving.
Makes about eight medium-sized waffles
