Kid-Friendly Vegan


4 cupcakes


For the waffles

  • 2 to 2 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 3 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 cups non-dairy milk
  • 2 tbsp. white vinegar
  • 1 /4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp. red food coloring, optional
  • 1/3 cup virgin coconut oil
  • fresh berries, optional

For the cream cheese sauce

  • 1/2 cup cashew pieces, soaked for several hours, drained and rinsed
  • 1 6 oz. container plain, unsweetened soy yogurt
  • jot of vanilla extract
  • squeeze of lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup nut milk


For the waffles

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and cocoa powder.  Set aside.  In a big measuring cup, combine the milk, vinegar, maple syrup, food coloring and vanilla extract.
  2. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir well to combine.  Let sit for about 15 minutes during which time you should warm up your waffle iron and get your plates warming up in the oven.
  3. When the batter is ready, spoon batter onto a lightly oiled waffle iron and cook for 4-5 minutes (or according to the whims of your waffle iron) or until steam has nearly stopped rising.  Gently remove waffle and place directly onto a rack in the oven.  Prepare the remaining waffles.

For the sauce

  1. In a blender or food processor, combine all of the ingredients and process until very smooth.  Transfer to a small pitcher or bowl.
  2. Serve the piping hot, crispy waffles with plenty of cream cheese sauce and top with fresh berries.





I was into my 30s before I began running and working out, but I was still missing something: diet.  The animal products I was consuming were undoing the benefits of all of that physical activity.  Today my body runs on a plant-based, low-fat, low sugar diet that keeps me healthy and strong. I’m sharing – via An Unrefined Vegan - what I've learned by offering simple, delicious and nutritious recipes that nurture body, soul and conscience.

I really don\'t rate these waffles at all. I don\'t know how one would save this recipe, probably with normal flour and not wholemeal but then they would probably still taste wrong.
