Makes 6 eight-inch waffles
I know a magical place, where blueberries are always in season….my freezer!
For a long time, I had a fear of putting blueberry batter into my waffle iron. I mean, maybe it was a valid concern. The blueberries do sorta’ explode, and that could lead to burning. But I guess you can add “burnt blueberries” to the list of things I no longer fear. The thing is, they taste good. Call them “caramelized,” if you must. The trick is to spread the batter a bit, and close the lid slowly but firmly. You will get beautiful, evenly cooked waffles that are literally bursting with berries!
I love the texture of this waffle; a bit crispy from the oatmeal, but still deliciously moist from the applesauce. It’s the perfect way to start the day. Or, whatever, have waffles for dinner. See if I care!
If you’re looking for a waffle iron recommendation, I love my Cuisinart 8 inch waffle maker. I keep the heat on 3 most of the time. And if you’re in the Omaha area, come to my Vegan Waffle Party at the Omaha Public Library Read It And Eat Culinary Conference on Saturday November 3rd. Don’t forget your bib!
PS I really wanted to get a killer maple syrup food porn shot, but my camera battery died, and waffles wait for no man.
~ Slice leftover waffles and freeze them in a plastic freezer bag. Then just toast and serve whenever you need a waffle fix!
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1 cup quick cooking oats
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or your fave non-dairy milk)
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups frozen blueberries
Cook in waffle iron according to manufacturer directions. In my 8 inch waffle iron, I use a heaping 1/2 cup of batter. Remember to spray or brush the iron with oil in between each waffle.
love them, its the first time my mother asked for extras and i usually cook not vegan, but gluten free pancakes.
Don’t use the blueberries in waffle maker. Followed this recipe, put extra oil in the iron and my iron got stuck together. Had to pry it open and scrub off the uncooked waffle pieces. Would not recommend.
Sounds like it was your bad. The recipe works perfectly for me. I make this waffles all the time.
Have absolutely no problems with those waffles sticking. The key is a longer cooking time to make sure they are crispy before attempting to open the wafflemaker. Great tasting waffles!
I would really like to be vegan and I feel that these are easy enough for my stupid ass to cook! I love waffles!
A friend of mine lead me to his recipe! Wow I am going to give this one a try and I never even thought of freezing my left over waffles to toast later! My pups are really gonna be mad about that! 🙂
If the blueberries are fresh, does that effect the taste negatively?
thanks for such a good resipes

These Waffles look So good! I’m going to make them, pancake style, in the oven.
Thank you for sharing!
I followed the recipe and, like many others, the first waffle stuck to the waffle iron and wasn’t really salvageable. I made pancakes instead but they didn’t set up very well, either. Unlike your other recipes, this recipe might need some modifications. Thank you.
These are delicious and great to make ahead and freeze. I only had brown whole wheat flour that did the trick + I had barely 1 cup of fresh blueberries, so I replaced the missing half cup with chopped walnuts. This is an awesome basic recipe to play up with ingredients one has on hand – thank-you!
We made these as pancakes and they were great! We used fresh blueberries and left out the applesauce. We’ll definitely be making this again!
Delicious! Thank you
Is this your Idea of a review? Could have been nicer. These are great. Just be sure to spray the waffle maker very well. Waffles are a great food item any time of the day. I freeze waffles and pancakes for an easy meal. Just toast them. Never gets mushy. Great.
