Vegan Red Velvet Waffles with Cream “Cheese” Sauce

Crispy on the outside, tender and flavorful on the inside – treat yourself to vegan red velvet waffles this weekend. And don’t forget the cream “cheese” sauce!




Cream Cheese Sauce


Make the waffles

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda and cocoa powder. Set aside. In a big measuring cup, combine the milk, vinegar, cocoa syrup or maple syrup, shredded beets, or beet juice, and vanilla extract.
  2. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir well to combine. Let sit for about 15 minutes during which time you should warm up your waffle iron and get your plates warming up in the oven.
  3. When the batter is ready, spoon batter onto a lightly oiled waffle iron and cook for 4-5 minutes (or according to the whims of your waffle iron) or until steam has nearly stopped rising. Gently remove waffle and place directly onto a rack in the oven. Prepare the remaining waffles.

Make the sauce

  1. In a blender or food processor, combine all of the ingredients and process until very smooth. Transfer to a small pitcher or bowl.
  2. Serve the piping hot, crispy waffles with plenty of cream cheese sauce and top with fresh berries.
