Waffles are taken to the next level, with this recipe for vegan brioche waffles! Made fluffier with yeast and a rich vegan brioche dough.


  • 1/4 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon cane sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch + 3 tablespoons warm water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 6 tablespoons coconut oil (melted)
  • 3/4 cup cane sugar


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the coconut milk, water, yeast and sugar. Set aside for 5-7 minutes, until mixture becomes foamy. After the mixture has become foamy, whisk in the cornstarch + water mixture and vanilla extract. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the salt, all purpose flour and whole wheat flour. With a wooden spoon or spatula, mix in the yeast mixture, coconut oil and 3/4 cup cane sugar.
  3. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough rise at room temperature for 2 hours. Move the dough to the refrigerator and allow to rise overnight.
  4. Cook the waffles: Heat your waffle iron on medium heat, then grease liberally. Cook the waffles by scooping 1/4-1/3 cup of batter into the iron and cooking for about 3-4 minutes, until golden brown. Top with nutella, fruit or whipped coconut cream.
