Chocolate Beer Waffles from Vegan Brunch: Homestyle Recipes Worth Waking Up For by Isa Chandra Moskowitz
This is probably one of my favorite recipes in the book, Vegan Brunch. It will make you want to eat breakfast for all three meals of the day. You will probably already have most of the ingredients in your kitchen except maybe the beer. Buy a good quality porter or dark beer. And no using beer for this recipe isn’t wasting it. FYI- Guinness is not a vegan beer.
I used soy milk instead of almond milk and didn’t notice any negative effects. In fact, the waffles were just as crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside as my plain old non-vegan waffles. See my article on using beer in vegan recipes to see why beer in waffles is such a great choice.
Makes 6 six-inch round waffles or 8 four-inch square waffles.
