American waffles just got a fabulous makeover with our vegan avocado waffle recipe. And we're so happy to share it with you today!

How did we make these avocado waffles vegan? We skipped butter, eggs, and milk and used ripe mashed avocados and coconut milk instead.

Mashed avocados are an amazing substitute for butter in vegan waffles as they make the batter rich and creamy without adding too much fat.

The result is colourful green waffles as rich, fluffy, and tasty as the originals!

Simply whizz all the ingredients in a blender, pour the avocado batter into your waffle machine and let the waffles cook until golden and crusty. Easy!

In less than 20 minutes, blender to plate, you'll have some scrumptious avocado waffles, perfect for a sweet breakfast or Sunday brunch.

We love this recipe because it's a healthier, diet-friendly and allergen-free alternative to traditional American waffles, as there are no eggs and no dairy.

So make a big batch of these avocado waffles for the whole family to enjoy and savour them with your favourite toppings!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you make waffles with avocado?

To make waffles with avocado, simply peel and stone the avocados, blend them until smooth, and add them to the waffles batter mix instead of eggs and butter.

Make sure the avocados are very ripe as they'll be creamier and tastier.

How do you make waffles without eggs and butter?

You can make egg-free and no-butter waffles using mashed ripe avocados instead.

You can replace butter with avocado in a 1:1 ratio and substitute each egg with two tablespoons of avocado mash.

Avocados contain healthy fats, have a creamy and velvety texture and help bind the ingredients.

So, they're perfect for replacing butter and eggs in waffles and pancakes while keeping them rich and moist.

How do you cook avocado waffles?

Cook avocado waffles exactly as you would with classic waffles, using a waffle machine.

Pour enough avocado batter into the hot waffle iron to just cover all the groves and cook the waffles until fluffy, golden, and crusty — at least 10 minutes.

If you don't have a waffle maker, you could use a sandwich maker o even a griddle pan, but the waffles will look different.

What goes well with these waffles?

You can serve these avocado waffles with a drizzle of maple syrup and a sprinkle of diced avocados and berries like strawberries, raspberries or blueberries.

Step 2

In a food processor, blend the avocado with lemon juice, coconut milk, oat/soy milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon.

Then, incorporate the avocado mix into the flour a bit at time using a hand mixer until you have a smooth, creamy and scoopable waffle batter.

Step 3

Heat your waffle maker to medium-high (not max) and spray/grease the top and bottom griddles with vegetable oil.

Ladle in enough avocado waffle batter to just cover the griddle surface and level it with a spatula (1).

Don't add too much batter or the waffles won't raise well and they'll be dense and gummy instead.

Close the machine lid and cook the avocado waffles for 12-15 minutes or according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Just make sure the waffles are golden brown and cooked through, spongy inside and crusty outside (2).

Your vegan avocado waffles are ready!
