Vegan Vafler, Our vegan take on fluffy Norwegian Waffles. A tasty sweet treat in the traditional love heart shape with a hint of cardamom. Perfect served with fresh cream and berry compote.
Serving Vegan Norwegian Waffles
Serve with your favourite topping. We like fresh vegan whipped cream, bananas and pecans or fresh vegan whipped cream with berry compote on our vafler.
The individual heart shapes are perfect as a portion of finger food. Fold over the leaves and you have your very own waffle tacos. Serve them at a party with a variety of toppings and they will go down a treat.
Norwegian Vafler Cooking Tips
- In Norway, Vafler are traditionally made using a heart-shaped waffle iron. There is some contention about how many hearts the waffle maker should have. Five is the norm however there are versions with 4 or 6. If you don’t have a love heart waffle maker you can use any shape you have available.
- Use either soy or oat milk to make the waffles. These tend to be thicker than other kinds of milk and make a better batter.
- Don’t over mix your ingredients, gently combine and don’t worry about the lumps!
- Don’t forget to grease both sides of the waffle iron to stop the waffles from sticking.
- Let the Vafler cool on a wire rack without stacking them to stop them from going soggy.
Vegan Norwegian Waffles – Vegan Vafler
- 300 ml plant-based milk
- 100 ml plant-based greek yoghurt
- 5 ml lemon juice
- 240 g all-purpose flour
- 15 g baking powder
- 2 g salt
- 5 g cardamom powder
- 20 g agave syrup
- 60 g unsalted vegan butter melted
- 3 g vanilla extract
- Place the milk, yoghurt and lemon juice in a bowl and mix well. Leave at the side while preparing the rest of the ingredients.
- Sift the flour into a large bowl then stir in the rest of the dry ingredients.
- Add in the melted butter, vanilla and milk/yoghurt mixture. Mix gently using a wooden spoon or spatula until just combined, it is important the mixture is not over mixed. The batter should be a thick consistency, a few lumps in the mix is fine.
- Preheat your waffle iron, and grease before scooping in some of the mix. Watch and not over fill your iron with too much of the batter.
- Allow the waffles to cook until the steam has subsided and the waffles are nice and golden. They should be nice and fluffy on the inside.
- Serve with your favourite topping.
