I’m baccckkkk! Can you believe it?! I’ve missed y’all and I know y’all have missed me and my recipes. I’ve literally gotten message after message since I started my hiatus, asking me where I am and when new recipes are going to come out. Well, the answer to that first question is: I was working. As in my day job. As in my former day job. Yup, I’ve since quit that job which drained the life out of me to pursue a career in teaching. My heart is happy, my time is *mostly* mine again, and that means I’m back!
If you follow me on Facebook then you may have seen me announce my coming back and saying that changes were a’coming. One of those changes is that the recipes I post will now be streamlined. No more pictures of the steps and no more lengthy write ups. I know some of you really enjoyed all of that so I do apologize if that was you, but the majority of people wanted to get in, get out, and get cookin’ and I can respect that. Don’t worry though, I’ll still be talking a little about me, the recipe, etc., I’ll just be keeping it brief!
Another change is that I will now have blog posts inspired by a little section of my website that I like to call THINGS I LOVE – meaning that besides seeing recipe posts you will now also see beauty and grocery posts as well. Things like reviews, comparison guides, and so much more! The THINGS I LOVE section is also in the process of getting a face lift so soon that will be lookin’ all shiny and new too. Oh, and one other thing, some new posts will have videos in them – yes, cooking videos, and yes, makeup videos! Both of those things were highly requested and I can’t wait to get them out to y’all.
But for today we have just a good ol’ fashioned recipe post… Vegan Cinnamon Waffles! These waffles are quick and easy, and wonderfully chewy. This recipe works great in my George Foreman grill with the waffle plates in place. My Georgie makes 2 – 8″ x 6″ waffles at a time and at that size this recipe yields 4 waffles – that’s 2-4 servings depending on who’s eatin’. Now, obviously if your waffle maker is smaller or bigger this recipe is going to give you more or less waffles but, if you are needing more, you could very easily double the recipe off the bat and feed the masses! Enjoy 🙂

- 1 cup almond milk + 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- Ener-G Egg Replacer for 2 eggs (follow instructions on box)
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 2 tbsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 6 tbsp vegan butter, melted
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- Cooking spray
- In a bowl or measuring cup, combine almond milk with apple cider vinegar, stir, and let sit until needed. Prepare the egg replacer by following the instructions on the box for 2 eggs and then set this mixture aside until needed. Get your waffle iron preheating.
- In a large bowl combine the dry ingredients: all-purpose flour, cornstarch, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Whisk the dry ingredients together then add the wet ingredients: the almond milk mixture, the egg replacer mixture, vegan butter, sugar, and vanilla. Whisk once more just until combined.
- Spray your preheated waffle iron with cooking spray then scoop or spoon waffle batter in until the waffle plate is covered edge to edge. (You don’t want the waffle too thin but you don’t want it to be too thick either or it’ll just ooze out the sides. Hopefully you know the right amount of batter to put into your waffle iron otherwise this will be trial and error for these first couple waffles.) Cook the waffles for about 7-9 minutes or whatever your waffle iron’s manufacturer recommends. Repeat until the batter is gone then enjoy!
