Recipe for Vegan Waffles (3-ingredients)

I’m going to show you how to make a 3-ingredient vegan waffle for one, or vegan waffles for more than one person!

You might think I’m going to share a recipe for vegan waffles using oats, oatmeal or packaged mix but you’ll be surprised to read that we’re using bread instead!


Now hear me out… If you grill two slices of bread with your favourite filling and grill in a waffle iron in 2 mins, you’ll have a vegan waffle! Thanks to the waffle iron, it toasts the bread so perfectly and it almost feels like you’re truly eating a waffle without the mess of blending oats, mixing flour, or boxed waffle mix.

It also looks like a waffle, especially if you cut the sides off

You can make this gluten-free by using gluten-free bread! Kids love this recipe for breakfast or even for school lunches! College students also love it because it’s super easy to make using a waffle maker, bread, and PB&J!

    This was super quick to make! I can’t believe I turned my whole wheat bread slices (I usuallly have with peanut butter) into waffles!!! Really made me happy this morning and topped it with syrup! Made my morning and kids loved it! Thanks for the idea!

    My type of recipe! I need the simplest recipe for the morning and I never use my waffle maker unless it’s to make this now 😂

    I can’t believe I never thought of doing this! I tried this with white bread (very soft kind) and it was like eating crispy waffles* so good!
