Vegan Lemon Poppy Seed Waffles

If you are looking for something delicious to make for brunch on Mother’s day, these lemon poppy seed waffles would be perfect!  They happen to be gluten free and vegan but they are just as delicious as traditional waffles, and the lemon poppy seed flavor is perfect for spring!  If you don’t wish to make them gluten free, you can swap in whole wheat pastry flour 1:1 for the GF flour.  Also, if you wanted plain belgian waffles, simply leave out the lemon and poppy seeds.  These are so good served with fresh berries!

  1. To make the waffles, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, sea salt and poppy seeds in a large bowl.
  2. Then whisk the lemon juice and zest, flax mixture, oil, and coconut milk together until smooth.
  3. Heat your oven to 150F degrees and oil, and pre-heat waffle iron. Once it is heated, pour about 1/3 cup batter onto the waffle iron or until the iron is just covered (but not so much that it will ooze out) and close it.  Cook according to waffle iron package directions.  Remove from the waffle maker and keep warm in the oven while you make the others.  If you have a waffle maker the size of mine (regular belgian waffles), you may have more than 8 waffles.
  4. Serve!
