  • 2 cups whole wheat or regular flour
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. cumin
  • 1½ cups unsweetened unflavored plant-based milk

  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 100% maple syrup, for topping

  1. In a large bowl, whisk all dry ingredients together.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix wet ingredients, including the avocados.
  3. Add chopped fresh cilantro to wet ingredients and combine well.
  4. Pour the mixture into the flour mixture and stir until just combined. A few small lumps are fine.
  5. Preheat waffle iron; spray with non-stick spray, then fill three-quarters full with batter and cook until the waffles are golden and crisp.

Pair these waffles with plant-based breakfast sausages or a plant-based chick’n product to simulate chicken & waffles.
