This recipe was adapted from Food Network's "Almost Famous" pecan waffles (a knock-off of Waffle House's waffles).
Serves: 6
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour (make them heartier by using whole spelt or whole wheat pastry flour)
  • ⅓ cup raw cane sugar or coconut sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tbsp ground flax + 2 tbsp water
  • 1½ cup soy milk + 1 tsp apple cider or white vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 6 tbsp melted Earth Balance + more for coating waffle iron (okay, you can use less Earth Balance in the butter if you're watching your fat intake. A good compromise is 2 tbsp butter+ ¼ cup apple sauce.)
  • Maple syrup, for topping
  1. Whisk the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a large bowl.
  2. Whisk the flax egg (flax + water), soy milk, vinegar, vanilla, and earth balance in a separate bowl until combined.
  3. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined.
  4. Preheat a waffle iron and brush with melted Earth Balance butter. Ladle some batter into the iron (about ½ cup, depending on your waffle iron).
  5. Cook until golden brown, then transfer the waffle to a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven, or stack them on a plate.
  6. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  7. To serve top the waffles with maple syrup, toasted pecans, and sliced fruit.
