Prep Time: 6M
Cooking Time: 20M
Serves: 4



  1. 1 1/4 cup wholemeal flour
  2. 1 tsp baking powder
  3. 2 tbsp brown sugar
  4. 2 chia “eggs” (1 egg = 1 tbsp milled chia seeds mixed with 3 tbsp water to form a gel)
  5. 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  6. 1 scant cup almond milk or dairy-free milk of your choice
  7. 4 tbsp dairy-free margarine, melted
  8. About 1 pound of apples (pre coring), spiralized, grated, or cut into thin strips
  9. 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  10. 2 tbsp water

These sweetly spiced sugar-free waffles are a great way to start the day.

Prep time: 6 minutes (approximately)
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Serves: 4


  • Mix the flour, baking powder, and brown sugar together in a large bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the chia eggs and vanilla bean paste together. Add the almond milk a little at a time, stirring well, until it has combined with the chia mix.
  • Create a hole in the middle of the dry ingredients and slowly begin to pour in the chia mix, stirring constantly to form a batter. Be careful not to mix the batter any more than necessary – it doesn’t need to be completely smooth. Now add the melted butter and gently mix in.
  • Set the batter aside for ten minutes.
  • In the meantime, add the spiralized apple, cinnamon, and water into a large pan. Heat over medium-high heat and simmer for ten minutes until the apples are soft.
  • Heat up the waffle maker.
  • Gently mix the apples into the waffle batter and scoop around a quarter (depending on the size of your waffle maker) of the mix onto the iron. Press and cook according to your machine and preference (I chose a medium setting).
  • Once cooked and golden brown, remove the waffle from the machine and place it on a piece of paper towel to prevent it from becoming soggy.
  • Repeat the process for each waffle.
  • Serve with plant-based honey, syrup, or a caramel sauce.
