 These waffles begin and end with a nice bunch of fresh, just ripe strawberries.

Without them, don’t bother….

The waffle batter is not overly sweet, not overly tart.  It’s a light batter and you get bits of sour when your tongue finds one of the fresh strawberries mixed in with the batter.  The Maple Cinnamon Butter is not too sweet either and adds a smooth alternative to the crispness of the waffle edges.Vegan Fresh Strawberry Waffles with Maple Cinnamon Butter - From  #waffles #strawberrydesserts  #refinedsugarfree #Easter Breakfast


The strongest flavors here are strawberry puree and the cinnamon.  Both combine and swirl around in your mouth to balance out the plain waffle flavor.  Add in a little cocoa powder to the batter for a more dessert like waffle.

Please check out the Waffle Queen (Annie at An Unrefined Vegan) for the real encyclopedia of waffle making.  I’m just a beginner here and have a lot to learn.

My first attempt at waffle making.  Definitely not my last.

Strawberry Waffles with Maple Cinnamon Butter

Yield: 3 Belgian or 5 smaller Waffles

What you will need for this recipe:

  • For Maple Cinnamon Butter:
  • Combine 1/2 Cup Vegetable Butter with 1/4 Cup Maple or Agave Syrup and 1 tsp. Cinnnamon
  • For the Strawberry Puree:
  • 1 1/2 Cups Sliced Fresh Strawberries
  • 1/2 Cup of Beat Juice or water
  • 3/4 Cup Agave or Maple Syrup
  • 3 Tbs. Molasses
  • Plus Extra 1/2 Cups of fresh Strawberries reserved
  • For the Waffles:
  • Wet:
  • 1/2 Cup Nut Milk
  • 1 tsp. White Vinegar
  • 1/4 Cup Melted Coconut Oil or Vegan Butter
  • 1 tsp. Liquid Stevia (plain or vanilla)
  • Dry:
  • 2 Cups of Spelt or Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp. Cinnnamon


In a small saucepan, combine all the Strawberry Puree ingredients (except the 1/2 cup extra fresh strawberries reserved) and heat to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to a strong simmer and cook down liquid to reduce by half. The syrup will look like this when spooned:

When the syrup is cooked down, transfer the cooked strawberries to a blender and cool in the fridge while you mix the other ingredients. When the syrup is cooled some, puree the syrup until smooth. The puree should be about 1 1/2 Cups after puree.

For the Waffles:

Mix together all dry ingredients. Mix together all wet ingredients and stir in the strawberry puree.

Combine Dry and Wet ingredients gently. Try not to over mix the batter. It will be quite thick and the baking soda & powder will begin to expand.

Fold in the reserved 1/2 Cup of fresh sliced Strawberries. Allow the batter to sit for 5-10 minutes while the Waffle Iron heats.

When Iron is ready, spoon batter into center and cook per your Waffle Iron instructions. Batter will be thick and mine only took about 3 minutes per batch. Serve with Maple Cinnamon Butter or freezer in a sealed container for a tasty breakfast on the run.

For the Maple Cinnamon Butter, I used a new product from Trader Joe’s that combines Agave Nector with Maple Syrup.  It is not super sweet and blends well with the sour strawberry flavors.

A wonderful idea for an Easter morning meal.  Fresh ingredients that wont weigh you down for the day.  Substitute any fresh fruit in the syrup to suit your own tastes.

      The butter was the sweet part actually which is fine with me. I didn’t want the waffle to be like ‘cake’. You can choose how sweet by how much butter you put on.
      I’m loving the waffle iron. I made Red Velvet waffles this morning from http://anunrefinedvegan and it made enough for me to freeze a few for breakfasts next week.
      Thanks Sally! Hope you’re enjoying your trip ♥

      They were great but no Waffles this week. I’m trying out a week of Raw….not as ambitious as you yet but it’s going to be great. I’m just making up some Cucumber Dill soup that smells awesome ♥♥
      (It’s the same color as my smoothie breakfast so it must be good)
      I came home from my family Easter dinner feeling so down, felt like the freak at the table who wants to eat healthy…..but today is another day….raw week, here we come 🙂 Thanks Somer.

        Oh girl. I’m sorry Easter Dinner was rough. I have so much support that I feel really blessed. I can’t imagine being heckled for my eating preferences. Big hugs to you 🙁

        Good on you for starting a raw week. I’m having raw cashew cheese, tomatoes and fresh basil for lunch. Your smoothie and soup sound delicious. xx
