Eggless waffles are a good breakfast solution for vegans, those with an egg allergy or simply for a Sunday morning when you're all out of eggs and your heart is set on a waffle fueled brunch. Very easy to make and with similar results, even an egg loving waffle expert might find it difficult to distinguish an eggless waffle from a standard waffle.
Using most of the pantry ingredients found in a traditional waffle recipe, an eggless waffle recipe simply omits the eggs and substitutes in other wet ingredients. Try using different types of flour, including wholewheat and buckwheat, or going totally vegan using vegan substitutes for milk and butter.
Waffles made without eggs might need a little longer in the waffle iron than their egg containing counterparts, particularly if you prefer a crispy outside. Below are some scrumptious eggless waffle recipes to get you started.
