DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat waffle iron to desired level of heat – I prefer mine crispy.
  • Combine almond milk and vinegar in a large liquid measuring cup or small mixing bowl and let set for a few minutes to curdle/activate. Then add melted butter, vanilla extract, lemon juice and zest, and agave nectar or maple syrup and whisk. Set aside.
  • Add dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl and whisk until well combined.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until well incorporated. Fold in blueberries.
  • Once waffle iron is ready, generously coat with non-stick spray or vegan butter and pour on about ? cup of batter. Cook according to manufacturer instructions and then remove and place on a baking rack in a 200 degree oven to keep warm. Do not stack – keep them in a single layer to keep crispy.
  • Serve immediately with desired toppings. Store leftovers in a freezer safe bag and reheat in the toaster for best results. Will keep in the freezer for up to a couple months, although they’re best when eaten within the first couple weeks.
  • Suggested toppings: almond butter or vegan butter, flaxseed, bananas, blueberries, maple syrup.
