Sugar-free Vegan Apple Butter Waffles

Vegan Apple Butter Waffles by An Unrefined Vegan

Remember those Apple Butter Cookies I made a while back?  Well, I had a half a jar of apple butter hanging about the ‘fridge, causing me a lot of stress and anxiety about what I was going to do with it.  More cookies?  Throw it into a smoothie?  Let it get moldy and then have a valid reason to compost it?  Since Sunday was coming up (and Sunday is the anything-but-the-usual-bowl-of-oatmeal day), I thought it might make a nice addition to a stack of toasty waffles. The apple butter provides the flavor, the sweetness and the fat substitute and – it makes the waffles get a little caramelized around the edges.

5 Stars 4 Stars 3 Stars 2 Stars 1 Star No reviews
  • Author: Annie
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered stevia, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 Tbsp. egg replacer (I use Bob’s) + 9 tablespoons water (whisk together until thick, set aside for a few minutes)
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 cup “buttermilk”
  • 1 cup unsweetened apple butter


  1. Preheat your oven to 200-degrees F, put your plates inside to get warm and fire up the waffle iron.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, stevia and salt. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the egg replacer, milk, buttermilk and apple butter.
  3. Let batter sit for about 15 minutes.
  4. Lightly spritz waffle iron with cooking oil. Pour batter onto iron so that it almost reaches the edges. Close and cook for about 4 minutes. Gently remove and place directly on rack in preheated oven. Continue with remaining batter.
  5. Serve with your favorite waffle toppings.


  • Number of waffles will depend on the size/shape of your waffle iron.
  • I recommend my easy, sugar-free Apple Butter for these waffles. Recipe link is in post.

      Jennifer, I need to try coconut flour as well. Haven’t for some reason. I did just make gluten-free adzuki bean chocolate bars with rice and barley flours. Have to say I’m underwhelmed – though I sense potential.

        They sound delicious!! Rice and barley are off my list. I think I’ll have to stick with coconut flour or the “seed” flours like buckwheat and quinoa. Keep me updated on your progress, especially if you experiment with either of those flours! 🙂

    This makes me wish I still had some apple butter left over from when I went to visit the Amish. It was so yummy. As these waffles must be. I also don’t have a waffle maker. Double fail 🙁

    That’s it. I don’t know how I didn’t end up with any of Erika’s apple butter, but she’s going to have hell to pay if she doesn’t get me a jar soon.

    I need those waffles for crying out loud! The carmelization is gorgeous!

    …And now I’m craving waffles. Those look so divine, I can imagine that with some caramelized apple slices on top, and maybe a bit of maple syrup, these would be heavenly!

    These waffles look so good! I love waffles but I don’t have a waffle iron because, I know this is stupid, but it’s hard to find waffle machines here in Portugal! 🙁
    Anyway, these waffles must taste heavenly with apple butter, great recipe!
