Cornbread Waffles [vegan, gluten free, oil free]

  • Author: Remy
  • Total Time: 20 min
  • Yield: 6 large waffles 1x


A twist on your classic breakfast waffle, with a cornbread-like flavour. Healthy, gluten-free, vegan, oil-free and easy to make!


  • 2 cups of non-dairy milk
  • 1 tsp raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups cormeal
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1/4 cup of unsweetened non-dairy yogurt*
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp date sugar (or coconut sugar)
  • 1 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt


  1. In a small bowl, combine apple cider vinegar with non-dairy milk and allow to sit until slightly thickened (we’re mimicking buttermilk here).
  2. Whisk together cornmeal, oat flour, date sugar, flax seeds, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Next add the thickened milk, non-dairy yogurt, maple syrup and vanilla extract and combine with a spatula until smooth.
  4. Your mixture should be thicker than pancake batter, but still spoonable into your waffle iron. If you need to, you can add additional non-dairy milk by the teaspoon.
  5. Follow instructions to make waffles according to your waffle iron.


I used an unsweetened coconut yogurt, and I recommend looking for one with minimal, unprocessed ingredients (i.e. no added sugars, oils, etc.)
