The buckwheat gives these waffles a darker color and the brown rice flour makes them crispy. Some oat flour, which always adds a fresh, clean taste and lots of healthy goodness, also goes in. The waffles will turn out beautiful although they might take almost twice as long to get perfectly done in your waffle iron.

  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt

Wet ingredients:

  • 1½ cups soy milk mixed with 1 tsp vinegar and set aside to curdle, about 5 minutes
  • 2 tbsp ground flax whisked with 6 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Wet Ingredients:

  1. Whisk the wet ingredients together and add to the dry ingredients. Mix together but let some lumps remain.
  2. Heat a waffle iron
  3. and spray lightly with oil. Make waffles per instructions.
  4. These waffles take longer to bake and I give them twice as much time to hang out in the waffle iron than if I were making my usual whole-wheat waffles. One word of advise: don’t force the waffle iron open if you feel a resistance: just let them go for a little longer and try again.
