CNS Logo

1 cup buckwheat flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 Tbsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 pinch salt

1 pinch cinnamon

2 flax eggs (see tips)

2 Tbsp 100% maple syrup

1 ½ cups plant milk

3 Tbsp applesauce


2 cups pitted dark cherries

3 Tbsp 100% maple syrup


1 Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix until well combined. Batter should be stiff, thick and not too dry. If it is too dry, add a splash more of plant milk.

2 Heat waffle maker to high.

3 Pour waffle batter into waffle maker and cook for two minutes.

4 Remove to a plate. If it sticks, use a flat knife to pry it out of the waffle maker.


1 Mix together all the syrup ingredients in a saucepan. Heat until warm. Pour over cooked waffles.

Frozen cherries work better than fresh for the syrup.

1 flax egg = 1 Tbsp ground flax seed mixed with 3 Tbsp warm water.

These waffles can be frozen and reheated in a toaster.
