Vegan SnapDragon Apple Cinnamon Waffles

Author - Gena Hamshaw
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Yields: 4 servings


  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ground flax meal
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened soy, oat, or almond milk
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice or white vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached, all-purpose flour (180 g)
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (60 g)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2-3 tablespoons cane sugar (24-26 g)
  • 2 tablespoons melted vegan butter
  • 1/2 cup applesauce (112 g)
  • 1 1/2 cups peeled and finely diced SnapDragon apple (175g; about 2 medium apples)
  • Maple syrup, vegan butter, nut butter, and/or chopped nuts/seeds, for serving (optional)


  • Preheat your waffle iron according to manufacturer’s instructions. If necessary, spray the maker with vegetable oil before making your first waffle and between waffles as needed.
  • In a small bowl, combine the ground flax meal with 4 tablespoons room temperature water. Whisk together and set aside. In another, medium bowl, combine the non-dairy milk and lemon juice or vinegar. Stir them and set them aside. 
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder and soda, salt, cinnamon, and sugar. 
  • To the non-dairy milk and vinegar mixture, add the melted vegan butter, applesauce, and the prepared flax + water mixture. Stir these ingredients well. Pour them into the large mixing bowl with the dry ingredients. Fold everything together until the wet and dry ingredients are well mixed. A few small lumps in the batter is OK, but keep mixing (or use a whisk to mix) if you see larger lumps or dry streaks of flour. You’ll have a relatively thick waffle batter. Fold in the chopped apples. 
  • If using a 4-slice, square or round waffle maker, add a cup of batter to the waffle maker. Cook the waffle according to manufacturer’s instructions. If using a round, mini waffle maker, drop the batter in 1/4-cup amounts into the maker and cook according to manufacturer’s instructions. Continue this process until you’ve run out of batter. 
  • To keep the waffles warm during preparation, place them on a parchment or foil lined baking sheet in a preheated 350F oven as you work. 
  • When all of the waffles are ready, serve them with your toppings of choice. Enjoy!
