Ingredients

  • 2 servings masala chai Use all the chai: https://shahzadidevje.com/masala-chai-recipe/
  • 2 cups white flour wholewheat, gluten free flours also work
  • 3 Medjool dates super-soft and pitted
  • cup olive oil extra virgin, light
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Instructions

  • Start by making masala chai, and set aside to cool. Remove the tea bags only, and retain the spices and date.
  • Preheat your waffle maker according to instructions.
  • In a large blender, add flour, oil, dates, baking powder and cooled masala chai (with the spices and date). Blend until creamy. Avoid over-blending.
  • According to your waffle iron instructions, pour the right amount of batter onto the hot waffle plate. Cook, as directed. The waffle should be golden brown on both sides. Remove carefully.
  • Top with any one of the following toppings. Repeat with the remaining batter. Enjoy hot.

Notes

  • Stick to creamy plant-based kinds of milk to create the best waffles. Oat and soy milks work like a charm.
  • Always remember to preheat the waffle maker to ensures your waffles do not stick to the plates.
  • Avoid over-blending the waffle batter. Mix until the date and spices have mixed well.
  • If your waffle maker is not non-stick, make sure you spray some oil on the plates; otherwise, your waffles will stick.
  • Respect your waffle maker and follow its instructions. Avoid opening the lid too early and listen for the beep.
  • Serve hot to enjoy the crispiness.
  • Don't forget to clean your waffle maker (once it's cooled!) to ensure the cleaning process hassle-free. Plus, the machine will be ready for your next batch of waffles.
  • Enjoy your vegan waffles hot with any or all of the incredible toppings.
