  • waffle iron
  • mixing bowl
  • whisk or beater
  • large pot and lid for blueberry topping



  • 2/3 cup vegan egg replacer JUST egg or silken tofu
  • 1 1/2 cups soy milk
  • 4 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup vegan butter melted
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar


  • 1 1/2 cup flour AP or gluten free
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • a few pinches cinnamon


  • 1/4 cup vegan butter for greasing waffle iron
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 lemon squeezed for blueberry topping
  • maple syrup to serve


  • Warm up your waffle iron. I use a non-stick iron and use some additional melted butter to grease it very well and add extra buttery flavor
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk the wet ingredients. Then whisk in the dry ingredients. Whisp until nice and fluffy.
  • Grease the waffle iron by quickly rubbing some butter right on the surface. Be careful!! Iron will be very hot.
  • Add a generous scoop of batter onto the iron. Size will vary based on your waffle iron capacity.Close waffle iron and cook for 3-4 minutes or depending on your machine's needs.
  • While waffles are baking, you can whip up some blueberry topping by adding frozen blueberries and a few squeezes of lemon juice to a pot. Cover with lid and turn heat to medium. In 2-3 minutes, turn off heat and let sit, covered, until ready to serve. Upon serving, the blueberries will be soft and lovely!
  • When waffles are nice and browned and fluffy and cooked through, remove from iron and add blueberries and maple syrup over top to serve.Optional: crushed walnuts is another yummy addition!


If using silken tofu instead of JUST Egg, you will want to use a beater or blender to mix your batter.
For thicker blueberry sauce, add a few pinches of corn starch to the blueberries.
