Preparation

Recipe: Liv B’s Light n’ Fluffy Vegan Banana Waffles 2:45

Chop your bananas into coin-sized pieces, and add to your blender.

Add your coconut oil, maple syrup, almond milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Blend until smooth.

In a mixing bowl, combine your dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, and salt. Add your wet mixture and whisk until smooth.

Preheat your waffle iron. Once hot — add your batter to the waffle maker. Use a spatula to spread the batter to the corners.

Cook your waffles according to your waffle makers’ instructions.

Top your waffles off with some coconut whipped cream, coconut ice cream, maple syrup, peanut butter, or fruit! Whatever floats your boat. Eat right away, or freeze some for later!

The perfect vegan way to start your day!
