Vegan Old-Fashioned Waffles with Apple Cider Syrup

Breakfast is awesome.  I don’t know why I didn’t discover that fact earlier in life.  I never really ate breakfast at all until I was out of the house. Now before you get all judgmental about my parents not feeding me breakfast, it wasn’t their fault. They did feed me breakfast. Or they at least offered it to me. I just never wanted it.

What was my problem? Breakfast rules!   And mid week is the perfect time to make a breakfast that is a little extra special. To give yourself just a little extra kick to get through the week.

These waffles were perfect. Crisp on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside. And I wanted to make them a little extra special with a homemade syrup made from apple cider. It is crazy good. And crazy easy to make.  Make these and then get back to “workin’ for the weekend!”

  1. This looks absolutely divine… I love the texture of the pancakes and the cider syrup…such a beautiful idea 🙂

  2. Those waffles look like pure perfectioooon! I can definitely tell that these would be extra delicious!

  3. That waffle looks as fluffy as a cloud.

  4. I never ate breakfast growing up either – pretty much had to retrain myself on that habit and now I can’t go without it! I’ve always wanted to attempt waffles but have been too afraid. This recipe might just be the push I need. Waffles are my husband’s favorite. These look super fluffy and delicious!

  5. I’m drooling over these waffles right! and that syrup. Yum!

  6. When I think of all the times I said, “I hate breakfast!” I could nearly kick myself!

    Once I learned it can be a mix of savory and sweet (and hello, champagne) it became a new favorite meal.

    Waffles is one of those things I forget about, but then remember and eat obsessively for a while.

    Pretty sure you just reminded me. Glad to have stumbled across your blog!
