5 Vegan Waffle Recipes to Eat While Watching the Stranger Things Season 2 Premiere


Whether you’re chilling in the Upside Down or somehow managing to make sense of the world we’re living in, at least one constant remains: waffles. No matter who you are, or what reality you belong to, we’re sure you can agree that waffles make for some delicious and comforting fuel — especially the plant-based ones.

You see, after the first season of the popular (and super spooky) Netflix show, Stranger Things, premiered, Eggos had a bit of a heyday. A fan-favorite character in the show called Eleven favors the waffle-brand over all other foods. Now, waffles and Stranger Things are practically synonymous — they go together like peanut butter and jelly.

In honor of the upcoming debut of the second season of Stranger Things, we’ve put together a mini-roundup of the humble waffle. Let us know in the comments below which of the vegan waffle recipes you’ll be making on October 27 to celebrate!

1. Pumpkin Waffles With Apple Cider Maple Syrup 

We are so down for these seasonal Pumpkin Waffles With Apple Cider Maple Syrup by Zsu Dever. Crisp on the outside, tender on the inside, with plenty of pumpkin pie flavor to get you in the cooler weather mood, these waffles border the line between dessert and breakfast in the best way possible. They are topped with a two-ingredient apple cider maple syrup, and you can also add some fruit, nuts, or powdered sugar.

2. Red Velvet Waffles With Cream Cheese Sauce

Dessert for breakfast? Yes, please! These Red Velvet Waffles With Cream Cheese Sauce by Annie Oliverio will give you the perfect excuse to stay in your pajamas a little longer and soak up the morning sun.

3. Chai-Spiced Sweet Potato Waffles

When chilly mornings have you wanting to stay inside, whip up a batch of these Chai-Spiced Sweet Potato Waffles by Erin Beccia. The chai-inspired spices will keep you warm!

4. 5-Ingredient Paleo Waffles 

Aren’t these 5-Ingredient Paleo Waffles by Nathalie Sader gorgeous? Grain-free? Don’t let that stop you from digging into a plate of waffles! Made from plantains and coconut flour, these crisp, golden waffles are paleo-friendly and completely vegan. Serve topped with your favorite fruit and plenty of maple syrup.

5. Chocolate Plantain and Banana Waffles 

You’ll feel like a magician when you prepare these grain-free Chocolate Plantain and Banana Waffles by Victoria Jackson and then freeze them to keep on hand. Simply defrost and heat about ten minutes in the oven and become crispy and delicious! These banana waffles are very rich with a little bit of almond butter and roasted bananas or some chia jam. A simple and nutritious combination for an incredibly satisfying breakfast and easy to make!
