Easy waffle recipe

Kithumini/Staff/File

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. As a college student who’s always on the go, sometimes it’s easy to skip this meal. But with this simple waffle recipe, you’ll want to savor breakfast every morning. They only take a few minutes to make. Top them with nut butter and fruit, make waffle sandwiches with leftover turkey or dip them in syrup — there are so many ways to go.

What you’ll need:

Equipment:

Waffle iron

Cooking spray

Ingredients:

2 eggs (or 2 flax eggs if you’re making recipe vegan)

Note: To make flax eggs, combine 1 tbsp. ground flaxseed with 3 tbsp. water. Refrigerate for about 15 minutes until mixture becomes gelatinous and has a consistency similar to that of an egg.

2 cups flour

1 1/2 cups milk (nut milk works too, and if you’re a chocolate fanatic, use chocolate almond milk)

Note: More or less milk may be required depending on how thick your waffle batter comes out, so make sure to check and add as needed

1/3 cup vegetable or coconut oil (I usually omit the oil and have the waffles come out fine)

1 tsp. vanilla extract

4 tsp. baking powder
