Classic Plant-Based Waffles
This recipe from Alison at Loving It Vegan is perfect for those of us who enjoy the simpler joys in life—like a classically fluffy waffle topped with fresh fruit. These turn out beautifully golden, crisp, and light.
Personally, I love throwing a dollop of vegan ice cream on top (see our list of the top rated ice cream makers to create your own concoctions at home), but you can customize these pretty much any way you like or simply eat them with syrup for a real classic waffle experience.
