To make your very own vegan waffles, you’ll need a substitute for the eggs and buttermilk, which are non-vegan ingredients. Baking powder is a wonderful replacement for eggs. Using baking powder ensures light and fluffy waffles despite the lack of eggs. If you prefer a denser waffle akin to a pancake, you can make your own flax egg by mixing a tablespoon of raw, ground flax seed with about two tablespoons of water.
For buttermilk, you can simply substitute it with plant-based milk like soy, oat, or almond milk. But if you want the signature tart taste of buttermilk, you can actually make your own homemade vegan buttermilk. All you need is unsweetened plant-based milk and lemon juice or white vinegar. Simply mix a cup of your unsweetened milk and a tablespoon of lemon juice. Let the mixture rest for 10 minutes, where it will begin to curdle. Voila! Homemade vegan buttermilk.
Aside from the lemon juice and plant-based milk method, there are other alternatives you can use like vegan sour cream or vegan yogurt. You can simply mix ¼ cup of water or milk to ¾ cup of vegan sour cream or vegan yogurt to get one cup of buttermilk substitute.
