#WIAW - Vegan Waffles

My favourite pre-race/long run fuel these days is Waffles. I have had some trouble digesting diary before my long run, so I have been experimenting with some vegan recipes to create the perfect fuel. I threw together this vegan recipe the other day, and it turned out, so I thought I would share on this week's WIAW.

Vegan Waffles

**Recipe makes 6 Waffles **

2 cups of Almond Milk
1/2 cup of Rolled Oats
2 cups of Whole Wheat Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
Faux Eggs (2 tbsp flax seeds + 6 tbsp water blended)
1/4 cup Turbinado Sugar
2 tbsp Coconut Oil
1 tsp Vanilla

1. Preheat a waffle iron
2. Blend together flax seed and water to create Faux Eggs
3. Mix all of the ingredients together in one large bowl. The mixture will be lumpy, but that is A-okay.
4. Use a half cup to measure out the batter for each Waffle. Coke for 7-10 minutes. My waffle iron is automatic, so the light lets me know when it is done.
5. I usually top mine with berries and maple syrup

Love Your Favourite Darwinian Fail,


  1. NOM! I just discovered gluten free pancakes - pancakes and waffles are a girls' best friend!

  2. These sound delicious! I just love waffles and great choice with the blackberries! I've been absolutely obsessed with them lately :)

  3. Oats in my waffles! Splendid idea! I am going to have to try these.

  4. That looks amazing!!!! Hope it helps your digestion! :)

  5. Nothing beats waffles pre or post runs!!!


  6. I'm a waffle person over pancakes. Just thought I would throw that out there.

  7. I see all these amazing waffle recipes, but don't have a waffle maker. I think I need to break down - or beg Santa for a waffle iron and a food processor.
