Fluffy Vegan Waffles made with apple sauce and bananas instead of eggs and sugar. They’re crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside and so easy to make in 1 bowl! Oil free! Gluten free option too!



  • 1 and 1/2 cups All purpose flour or Gluten free flour (I like Robin Hood Brand or Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 banana ( overripe if you have one)
  • 1 can coconut milk ( not cream )
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 and 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  1. Add your peeled banana to a large mixing bowl, mash it well with a fork
  2. Add the rest of ingredients (except the flour and baking powder), mix well
  3. Add in the flour and baking powder on top, whisk until smooth
  4. Cook in your Waffle Iron
  5. With my waffle iron it makes about 6  good size waffles
  6. Enjoy with maple syrup and my Macerated Strawberries Recipe and or fresh fruit.


  • These waffles freeze beautifully, just pop in toaster from frozen or reheat in  microwave.
  • If your waffle mix is to thick add little plant milk (I like almond milk), too thin add little flour.
  • I peel and freeze my overripe bananas whole, I just defrost on counter or in microwave,  add to recipe.
