Vegan Waffles Made With Almond Meal or Pulp

One of our most popular breakfast dishes Vegan Waffles made with Almond Meal or Pulp.  Vegan waffles with cashew cream and fresh fruit.

As we make our own fresh almond milk every day, we tend to have loads of almond meal or pulp left over, so what do you do with it?  First of all… it does FREEZE very well so don’t throw it away.  You can make waffles and waffle base fruit baskets of course!

More people are making their own Almond Milk and it’s so easy to do and a lot less expensive than store bought almond milk.  It also removes the need for preservatives that cause lots of digestive problems for many people.

Here’s our recipe for a simple way to use up the leftover meal PLUS the almond milk recipe is also included so there’s no excuses.

One of our customers ordered 14 of our sweet waffles which she intended to use for breakfast on Christmas morning instead of greasy, fat-filled croissants.  This was because one of her guests is coeliac and she wanted everyone to feel included rather than excluded – nice gesture!

So there you have it… vegan waffles with cashew cream.  Another great free recipe that will help you try new healthier plant-based options as an alternative to the more common, unhealthier foods.  For more plant based recipes like this, check out our recipe books “Let’s Eat Raw” and “Raw Vegan Meals”
