Waffle Tips:
1. Don’t let the waffle iron get too hot; your waffles might be crispy done on the outside, but they’ll be goo inside. You can preheat the waffle iron on max, then reduce it by at least a third before pouring in your batter.

2. The little “ready” light is just an indicator that your iron is up to temp; it will NOT tell you when a waffle is done. In my iron, these waffles take about 4-5 minutes each.

3. Put your oven or toaster oven on the lowest setting, and keep the finished waffles on a tray inside to stay warm until all waffles are done.

4. This recipe freezes very well, so double it and store extra waffles in the freezer for up to 6 months. Re-heat in your toaster from frozen using the frozen bread setting, if your toaster has one.

Best Belgian Waffles Ⓥ

These fluffy waffles use aquafaba as an egg substitute

Servings 4 waffles


  • 1 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp white sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp cream of tartar
  • ¼ cup aquafaba equivalent of 1 egg
  • 1 cup soymilk
  • 2 tbsp melted plant butter or neutral liquid vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • avocado oil spray to grease the waffle iron


  1. Preheat your waffle iron and set to the side.

  2. In a large measuring cup (or bowl), whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Set aside.

  3. In your stand mixer with the whisk attachment (or in a bowl with an egg beater), add aquafaba and cream of tartar, and beat on high, stopping occasionally to scrape the sides, until stiff peaks form. Set aside.

  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted plant butter, milk, and vanilla extract.

  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring just until the dry and wet ingredients are combined. Do not over mix; lumps are fine. Fold in the aquafaba fluff.

  6. Spray both sides of your pre-heated waffle iron with avocado oil spray. Add a little more than a ½ cup of batter to the iron and cook until golden brown, about 4-ish minutes.

  7. Top as desired with plant butter, maple syrup, icing sugar, peanut butter etc. Serve immediately.
