Soaked Waffles Recipes


  • 2.5 cups flour I use organic, unbleached flour.
  • 2 cups filtered water
  • 2 Tbs whey or another acidic medium - you can use apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, buttermilk, etc
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 Tbsp Grade B maple syrup


  • Combine flour, water, and whey. Cover and let it sit for 12-24 hours.
  • Add the eggs, butter, salt, vanilla and maple syrup to the soaked flour mixture.
  • Combine the baking soda with a little water and pour it into the waffle mixture and combine.
  • (It is normal for the dough to be sticky and difficult to stir. I use a thick wooden spoon and employ a whipping motion to combine the ingredients.)
  • Grease your waffle iron with butter or coconut oil if necessary. (I never need it to prevent sticking. I set my waffle iron on the highest setting, as well.)
  • Ladle the waffle batter onto the waffle iron and cook until golden brown.


Additional flavor or topping ideas:
Add 1/2-1 cup of pumpkin and 1 tsp of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice for pumpkin waffles.
Add 1/2-1 cup of berries.
Add 1/2 cup of naturally sweetened chocolate chips for chocolate chip waffles. (The pumpkin plus chocolate chip addition is a fall favorite!)
Add 2 tsp of cinnamon for cinnamon waffles.
Add 1/4 of cocoa powder for chocolate waffles.
Add 1/2 cup of ripe, mashed banana for banana waffles. (This is yummy combined with cocoa powder.)
