My Vegan Waffles Recipe is the best ever, made with bananas and applesauce instead of sugar. They’re crispy and fluffy, oil free, easily gluten free, quick and easy, I could probably eat them everyday, lol.



  • 1 and 1/2 cups All purpose flour or Gluten free flour (I like Robin Hood Brand)
  • 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 minus the flour and baking powder, mix well
  3. Add in the flour and baking powder , 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 😊


  • 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, to thin add little flour.
  • I freeze my overripe bananas whole, I just defrost on counter or in microwave, peel and add to recipe.
