Nothing says Saturday mornings like homemade waffles for breakfast.

But when our boys were toddlers, we almost didn’t get to experience this fun weekend tradition.

Because, dang it, my kids were allergic to both milk and eggs.

Surely you can’t make waffles without those ingredients, right? Or can you?

In true allergy mom style, I set out on a mission.

Allergies weren’t going to stop the waffle train at this house. No ma’am.

Thankfully, low and behold, we discovered an amazing waffle recipe without BOTH milk and egg.

And in fact, this recipe doesn’t even call for milk or egg replacers. It’s that easy.

Crazy as it sounds, these waffles use just water instead of milk.

But don’t knock ’em til you try ’em!

The flavor has a perfect hint of vanilla.

One allergy mama even suggested that they taste like an ice cream cone. We will take it! 

Trust me, nobody’s gonna know these have no milk or egg.

Furthermore, this recipe is perfect for making waffles ahead of time to save you time.

Double or triple the recipe and refrigerate the waffles for a few days. 

Or freeze these waffles for weeks. 

Either way, these waffles reheat well.

Our busy moms love this easy breakfast hack!

“Spent a snowy afternoon in upstate NY making Jamie Kaufmann’s allergy free freezer waffles. They are a staple in our home.” MAM Member

“I made these during our quarantine during Covid 19 due to lack of milk and eggs and also a dead refrigerator. These came out very tasty. If you didn’t tell anyone that they are vegan no one would ever guess.” MAM Reader

“I was a bit skeptical at first since all of the (other) recipes I had tried were gummy or didn’t taste good! Amazing recipe! Glad I can make waffles again without eggs and milk!” MAM Reader


“I make ours with gf flour. I let it sit about 10 min after mixing and they’re perfect every time!” MAM Member


If not allergic to wheat, can you make these waffles with wheat flour? Sure!

This recipe calls for 2 and 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour. 

And we’ve successfully made them with a mix of white and wheat flour. 

Our favorite flour ratio:

  • 1 and 1/2 cups white flour
  • 1 cup wheat flour

If you use a different mix of flours, we’d love to hear in the comments.

waffle batter dairy free and egg free


  • double or triple the recipe
  • cook the waffles
  • let waffles cool on a rack
  • move rack to freezer to flash freeze
  • place waffles in airtight containers or freezer bags
  • label with the date
  • store in the freezer


Waffles were one of our favorite dairy-free toddler snacks.

While most toddlers won’t eat a whole waffle in one sitting…

homemade waffles can easily be broken into quarters for little hands and mouths. 

So perfect. 

If you’re freezing no milk, no egg waffles for your toddler, 

you may want to break them into quarter sizes before flash freezing and putting in a freezer bag. 

This way they will stretch even further and nothing will go to waste. 

Your toddlers will love these! No syrup even needed. 

Quartered waffles definitely make for a fun finger food.


Since these no milk, no egg waffles lend themselves to reheating so well…

here’s our favorite way to do it!

Whether the waffles are coming from the refrigerator or the freezer, 

we reheat the same way. 

If frozen, however, we let them sit out for about 15 minutes to thaw a little. 

Set them out, brush your teeth, take a shower…then your waffles will be ready to heat. 

To reheat waffles…

first, we microwave thawed waffles until they are heated through, 30 seconds at time. 

If you like really soft, limp waffles, you can stop there. 

But we like a little crunch so we then toast the hot waffles.

Just pop them in your toaster or toaster oven and toast them. 

Then you’re good to go!

The microwave heats them through quickly. 

The toaster crisps them up perfectly.

After a decade, my husband finally replaced our first waffle iron.

Here’s our new ceramic coated non-stick waffle iron (affiliate).

It makes thick and crispy waffles just like we love them.

Now here’s the easy recipe!

waffle in an iron, dairy and egg free


Makes 6 waffles.


2 and 1/2 cups white flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
4 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 and 1/2 cups water
5 tablespoons coconut or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla

Feel free to add 1-4 tablespoons more flour to thicken the batter if need be.

I personally never need to add flour.  


Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl:

2 and 1/2 cups white flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
4 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix wet ingredients in a medium bowl: 

2 and 1/2 cups water
5 tablespoons melted coconut or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla

Incorporate all the ingredients together, just until moist.

Don’t over mix.

Feel free to add 1-4 tablespoons more flour if needed to reach desired consistency. 

Cook in waffle iron according to its instructions.

Serve hot. 

Top with fresh fruit or your other favorite allergy-friendly toppings.

Hope you love these simple dairy and egg free waffles as much as we do.

Hi, Made these with home made GF flour blend (for this recipe approximately 1 cup oatmeal, 2/3 cup brown rice flour, 1/3 cup chickpea flour, a bit less then 1/2 cup tapioca starch, 2 big table spoons psyllium husk (not powder), 1 teaspoon guar gom) Also used 1 1/2 cup rice drink as a liquid (rest water).

Added some maple syrup

At first the dough is very liquid, but gets firmer when resting 5-10 min. Because it stayed a bit too liquid I added some more starch to desired consistency.

Worked really well!

This is a great recipe I’ve made it quite a few times now because I can’t have dairy or egg. This time I added the discard from my sourdough starter to it and use less water. It made them fluffier and they tasted lighter.

@Jamie Kaufmann, I have an abundance of sourdough discard and I do the same. Love how light it makes them.
