Vegan Buffalo Chicken Waffles
♫ Listening to: For Want Of by Rites of Spring ♫
Courtney and I decided to make waffles that match our hair today. She made sweet waffles naturally colored with superfood powders. I made savory waffles colored with gel color. And we did it on IG live stream in case you want to watch.
This recipe makes 15 mini 3” heart-shaped waffles (10 if you don’t add vegan chicken). I usually reheat the leftover waffles in the toaster oven or just eat them at room temperature.
Vegan Buffalo Chicken Waffle Ingredients
- 1 cup unbleached flour
- ½ cup chickpea flour (or sub fava chickpea flour)
- 1 ½ tablespoons baking powder (aluminum free if possible)
- ¼ teaspoon thyme
- ¼ teaspoon oregano
- ¼ teaspoon basil
- ¼ teaspoon paprika
- pinch of pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ cup unsweetened, unflavored vegan yogurt
- ¾ cup of water
- 4 ounces of vegan chicken, cut into small pieces
- food coloring (optional)
- sunflower, safflower, or coconut oil (to coat the waffle iron between batches)
Vegan Buffalo Chicken Waffle Directions
Blend the following ingredients until smooth: 1 cup unbleached flour, ½ cup chickpea flour, 1 ½ tablespoons baking powder, ¼ teaspoon thyme, ¼ teaspoon oregano, ¼ teaspoon basil, ¼ teaspoon paprika, pinch of pepper, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, ½ cup unsweetened, unflavored vegan yogurt, and ¾ cup of water. If you don’t have a blender, just mix it by hand in a large bowl.
(Optional): Color your batter with vegan food coloring if you want your waffles to be colored. I used wilton sky blue gel color and wilton violet gel color for these.
Heat the waffle iron according to your waffle maker’s instructions.
Add the vegan fried chicken pieces your batter and mix them in. These taste great without the chicken too, but you deserve to treat yourself. I recommend Karelyn’s Vegan fried chicken tenders because they use organic ingredients, they’re vegan owned, they’re black owned, and they’re a small business, and small businesses are the ones struggling the most right now. If you order from them, you can even enter the coupon code VeganDollhouse for 10% off!!!
Coat both sides of the waffle iron with oil using an oil sprayer or a silicone brush dipped in oil.
Pour the batter into the waffle cubbies, and follow your waffle iron instructions for cooking.
Remove the waffles from the waffle iron by shimmying a silicone spatula under one of the edges to help loosen it.
Drizzle with vegan ranch and buffalo sauce; buffalo sauce is just equal parts melted vegan butter mixed with Frank's RedHot .
