February is usually the month of crêpes in France with the chandeleur on the 2nd of February. I have already made crêpes here (recipe 22 – vegan crêpes) so I thought I will make another french favourite….waffles! I took inspiration from one of the recipes in my great vegan food substitution book. So I can’t take credit for this recipe (although I slightly changed it). In order to make the waffle you need to have a waffle machine. In France every household has one (usually the waffle machine can also be used as a croque-monsieur machine just by changing the plaques – genius!!)

Here is how to make those vegan waffles (using a standard coffee mug):

Makes about 6 waffles

2/3 cup of lukewarm water

1/4 cup of crunchy peanut butter

2 tbsp of date syrup (or maple syrup, agave nectar)

2 big ripe bananas mashed

2 tsp of active yeast

1 cup of plain flour

2 cups of whole wheat flour

1 good pinch of salt

– Mix the water, peanut butter, syrup and mashed bananas together.

– Add the flours and yeast on top of the mixture and mix well until you cannot see any trace of flour left.

– The mixture will become a bit sticky and I used my hand to finish mixing it. Gather it in a ball of dough.

– Cover the bowl and leave the dough rise for 2 hours.

– Once risen, put the dough in the fridge for a few hours if possible (at least 4 hours).

– Take the dough out of the fridge at least 45 minutes before using it.

– Take a scoop of dough and put it in your waffle maker.

– Bake for about 5 to 10 minutes or until golden brown (check it often).

– Take the waffles out of the machine and leave them cool before serving.

– Serve with chocolate spread, jam, fruits, maple syrup etc….anything you like really.

– Et voilà!
