These vegan waffles have a wonderful taste and texture, thanks to aquafaba. Though the waffles have a nice crunch and are lightly sweet, you can use vanilla-flavored plant milk if you’re looking for extra sweetness.
Aquafaba is the thick liquid that comes from soaking or cooking beans or legumes—it’s the liquid you see when you open a can of chickpeas. Aquafaba is often used in vegan baked goods as an egg substitute, as its texture and composition of starches and protein make it useful for thickening, binding, emulsifying, and foaming.
You can use the liquid from canned or boxed chickpeas or other beans, or make your own.
