Reinventing the waffle breakfast experience by carefully taking every ingredient in this all-time delicacy and replacing it with whole cacao’s delicious and healthy benefits. The vegan chocolate hazelnut spread makes this one unforgettable!


  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseeds

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1 3/4 cups soy milk (can substitute with any other milk)

  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • 1 ¼ cups gluten free flour and ¼ cup unsweetened organic & natural cacao powder

  • 1 tbsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar

  • ¼ cup organic coconut oil, melted

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/4 cup Dried Cacao Fruit

  • Top with hazelnut butter and sliced banana


1. In a small bowl, combine the ground flaxseeds and water, stir together and set aside. It will thicken and act as the “egg” component.

2. In a separate bowl, combine the milk with the apple cider vinegar and set aside.

3. In a large bowl combine all the dries: flour, baking powder, salt and coconut sugar.

4. Add the flax mixture, the milk mixture, coconut oil, vanilla and Dried Cacao Fruit to the dry ingredients. Stir to combine.

5. Use a non-stick waffle iron, pour about a scoop of batter onto the waffle iron and cook until it is crispy on both sides.

7. Serve with vegan chocolate hazelnut spread and bananas for a perfect flavor combination.
* Note: The batter should be fairly thick. If it's too runny, add a few tablespoons of flour. If it's too thick, add a little more water.
