1 + ¾ cups all-purpose flour

3 tbsp. brown sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

½ cup cold aquafaba (water from 1 14 oz can chickpea)

1 teaspoon lemon juice

¼ cup melted coconut oil (can also use melted vegan butter or canola oil)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pinch of sea salt


  1. Preheat your waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions. 
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix these ingredients to combine.
  3. Put the aquafaba and lemon juice in a mixing bowl. Whisk vigorously or beat on a high setting to get it as light and foamy as possible.

  5. Add in the whipped aquafaba and fold it into the batter with a mixing spoon until everything just combines.

  7. Cook until the waffle is golden brown on both sides and slightly crispy. 
  8. Serve immediately or keep in the oven until ready to serve. 
  9. Top with vegan butter, fresh fruit, and maple syrup.
