Breakfast, lunch or dinner. It’s always a good time for homemade waffles! These gluten free vegan yogurt waffles are crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside.

Waffles are always the request in our house. They get gobbled up just about as fast as I can make them. Some like them with peanut butter, some prefer just a little dairy free butter and pure maple syrup. I like them covered in fresh berries, and in this case, with maple yogurt, too.

To make these yogurt waffles dairy free, I used both So Delicious Dairy Free unsweetened coconut milk beverage, as well as the So Delicious Dairy Free unsweetened coconut milk yogurt. The yogurt helps to create a great texture. Crispy, yet soft and chewy.

To top these waffles, I made a maple yogurt with just a little unsweetened yogurt with pure maple syrup. So creamy and the perfect compliment to these gluten free vegan yogurt waffles!

  2. Those looks so puffy! Yum. I love topping my waffles off with yoghurt because it isn’t too sweet and adds the creaminess I dream of from whip cream, but keeps it healthier.

  3. I LOVE Sarah’s creations.I am always on the look out for vegan waffle perfection. These look like they could be it! If you haven’t tried Sarah’s soft peanut butter cookies, I highly recommend you do. Oh my!

  4. Love a good waffle and filling all those little squares. Last fall we bought a replacement waffle maker after our broke months prior. Yet we haven’t used it nearly as much as I have hoped. I think I need to make time this weekend to make these! Especially since I picked up “the wrong” So Delicious Coconut Milk Yogurt tub and not the one my oldest daughter loves and I have 2 to use up now.

    • Gotta love kids and teens. I remember refusing to eat the “wrong” brand or flavor of something as a kid. I suppose too much coconut milk yogurt isn’t a bad problem to have though 🙂
