Cinnamon vegan waffles are the perfect breakfast, brunch or dessert. Only 6 ingredients make up this easy vegan waffle recipe. They'll quickly become a weekend favorite for everyone.
They're also egg-free and dairy-free.
In my opinion, these are the best homemade vegan waffles I’ve had!
The texture is exactly what I’m looking for in a waffle. They're perfectly crisp on the outside, with a warm soft center!
And just like my cinnamon pancakes, these babies are also loaded with plenty of cinnamon flavor!
How to make the perfect vegan waffles
- In a large bowl mix the dry ingredients.
- Pour the wet ingredients in with the dry.
- Mix the ingredients to create a batter.
After mixing, allow the batter to rest a few minutes. The resting period will allow the baking powder to fully activate.
In case you didn’t know, most baking powders are double-acting. The first reaction occurs when it is mixed with a liquid. The second reaction occurs when the batter is heated.
For the waffles we want the first baking powder reaction to complete before pouring the waffle batter into the iron.
The second reaction will occur during the cooking process. The final result will be beautiful waffles with soft centers.
Optional vegan waffles toppings
- cinnamon and sugar for a churro-style waffle
- banana slices
- diced apple
- chopped nuts
- fruit preserves
- vanilla ice cream for a sweet dessert

- 3 cups all purpose flour*
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- 3 Tablespoons coconut sugar
- 2 Tablespoons cinnamon powder
- 1/3 teaspoon himalayan pink salt
- 3 cups non-dairy milk
- 1/4 cup refined coconut oil, melted
- Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and whisk until just mixed.
- Allow the batter to rest while the waffle iron heats up.
- Once heated, pour in the batter. My waffle iron takes about 1/2 cup of batter.
- Cook the waffle per your irons instruction. I find it best to leave them in there until most of the steam has stopped rising from the sides.
- To keep the waffles warm place them in a 200ºF preheated oven immediately after they come out of the waffle iron.
- Serve topped with banana slices, or your favorite topping, and maple syrup.
Leftover waffles can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days or in the freezer for about 2 months.
*Flour note: To avoid adding too much flour, scoop the flour into the measuring cup with a spoon. Then level with the flat side of a knife.
For EXTRA CRISPY waffles replace 1 cup of non-dairy milk with 1 cup of seltzer water.
