Savoury Vegan Waffles

Well hello!

So since I burst your bubble about Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes (even soy) containing dairy (sorry again, it’s in the syrup) – I decided I needed to make it up to you with a recipe!

I am a fan of savoury breakfasts – most mornings I have eggs and toast – mainly because I cannot think of anything else to eat that is savoury.  Until the other day.

I was laying in bed on Sunday thinking what I could make that was eggless for breakfast.  I had a craving for waffles, but wasn’t digging the whole “maple syrup” thing.

Then it came to me – savoury breakfast waffles – oh yes. 

I searched the internet, and apparently I’m not the only person that has thought this up.  BUT from what I could see – most contain CHEESE!   Being dairy free and not particularly enjoying dairy free cheese I had to come up with a plan…


Savoury Vegan Waffles

makes 5-6 waffles

1 3/4 cup all purpose flour

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

2 tbsp. chia in 4 tbsp. water (or 2 eggs)

1 1/2 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/8 cup nutritional yeast

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1 pinch savoury (or spice of choice)

Pre-heat waffle maker.

Mix together dry ingredients

Add in wet ingredients and mix together until just combined.

Add 1/2 cup mixture to waffle maker per waffle..

Let waffles cook until desired texture – I prefer mine crunchy, so I cook them and then pop them in the toaster!


I just did what I knew would work – for me savoury and mushrooms are a perfect marriage – so I sautéed up some mushrooms and kale in water with a pinch of salt.


Other options could include;



earth balance butter

grilled onions/veggies

Or you could even make it into a sandwich – with whatever fillings you want?  veggies and hummus?


My bottom line – I LOVED them – like really really loved them.  I am going to try to supplement something for the oil, as it’s a lot for a recipe.

My plans for the extras are to freeze them individually so I can pop them into the toaster for a quick snack!

Hope you enjoy this recipe! 

I start a photography course tomorrow – so expect to see my blog full of photos soon!!
