Chocolate brownie and oatmeal yogurt waffles

I received a waffle iron about a week ago as an early Valentine's Day gift, and I've been experimenting with it ever since. It came with a small booklet of recipe suggestions, and I've veganized a few of them, with varying success. Here are the recipes for two of my favorites:


Chocolate Brownie Waffles
These are great for dessert, like a quick cooking chocolate cake.

Ingredients:
1 cup all purpose flour (I used whole wheat pastry flour)
3 TBS granulated sugar
3 TBS packed brown sugar
1/3 c unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
3 scant tsp Ener-G egg replacer powder mixed with 3 TBS warm water
1 c non-dairy milk (I used hemp milk)
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 TBS vegetable oil

Mix egg replacer and set aside. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients and stir with a whisk (or fork) to blend. In a separate bowl, whisk together wet ingredients, then add to dry ingredients, stirring until smooth (I just added the wet ingredients to the dry ones without premixing. I don't like having to wash extra bowls They came out fine). Ladle batter onto waffle iron and cook about 2 minutes, or to desired crispness. Repeat.


Oatmeal Yogurt Waffles
These are incredibly filling and make a great breakfast. They also freeze well and reheat nicely in the toaster oven for a mess-free, on-the-run morning.

Ingredients:
1 c rolled oats (not quick oats)
1 c non-dairy milk (I used hemp milk)
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour (I used whole wheat pastry flour)
4 TBS packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 c plain soy yogurt (I used blueberry. Mmm.)
3 scant tsp Ener-G egg replacer powder mixed with 3 TBS warm water
1 tsp vanilla extract
6 TBS vegetable oil
Optional: Raisins or fresh fruit (Real blueberries would have been amazing with this.)

Stir oatmeal in a small bowl with milk and let it soak for 5-10 minutes. Mix egg replacer and set aside. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients and stir with a whisk (or fork) to blend. Add oatmeal mix. In a separate bowl, whisk together wet ingredients, then add to dry ingredients, stirring until smooth (Or just add them). Fold in optional raisins or fruit. Ladle batter onto waffle iron and cook about 2 minutes, or to desired crispness. Repeat.

ETA: Both of the above recipes originally called for one egg and one egg white. I used approximately the equivalent in Ener-G because I have huge box of it that I rarely use. However, other substitutes, such as flax seed eggs, might work just as well. Substitute accordingly.


While whole wheat pastry flour is slightly bitter in plain waffles, these two recipes have such strong flavors that they can carry the whole wheat. My next experiment is to make waffles with hemp protein powder for a breakfast that's a little less carb-centric. I'll probably make a hybrid of the two waffles, using the protein powder in place of the cocoa powder, using less sugar, but keeping the oats, because I like the heft they add.
