Nothing says “Saturday mornings” like homemade waffles for breakfast.

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

Because, dang it, my kids had both milk AND egg allergies.

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

My heart couldn’t bear it.

Just like I couldn’t bear not enjoying French Toast as a family tradition.

Apparently, I really like breakfast, ha ha!

Waffles With No Milk or Egg

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

And low and behold, not only did we come up with a milk-free and egg-free waffle recipe…

but we also found a way to omit ANY milk.

That’s right, not even dairy-free milk is needed in this recipe.

Freezer Milk-Free and Egg-Free Waffles Recipe

Use just water. BAM! 

Save that pricey dairy-free milk, mama.

You can’t get any more basic than water and no egg.

Yet, the flavor is perfectly acceptable and even tasty.

One allergy mama said they taste like an ice cream cone. 

We’ll take it! 

Hey, why not load one up with dairy-free ice cream, chocolate syrup, and dairy-free whip

We won’t mind!

But back to breakfast, douse these babies in dairy-free butter and syrup.

Nobody’s gonna know these have no milk or egg.

These are also perfect for making ahead to save you time and energy.

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

Or freeze them for weeks. 

Either way, these reheat perfectly and the kids still love them. 

Our busy moms love this easy waffle 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!”


Freezer Milk-Free and Egg-Free Waffles Recipe


Can you make these waffles with wheat flour? 


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 mix for these waffles is:

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!

Store in the freezer

Pull out frozen waffles as needed

Heat in microwave and/or toaster oven before eating

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

While most toddlers won’t eat a whole waffle, 

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 make for a fun finger food!


Freezer Milk-Free and Egg-Free Waffles Recipe

Frozen waffles are perfect for quick, convenient, toaster oven waffles on busy days.

My boys never tire of them!

I’ve also been asked many times what waffle iron we use.

My husband loves our ceramic coated (not teflon), non-stick waffle iron (affiliate) to make our weekend waffles.

See the video in this post!

Ours is going over 5 years strong…with waffles every Saturday.

Hope you find this recipe and the results as surprisingly good as we do.

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 will 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.  

Now here’s the no milk, no egg waffles recipe!


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 never need to add flour. 

Freezer Milk Free and Egg Free Waffles Recipe 


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.

Our waffles are the perfect size with 3/4 cup of batter per waffle but the size of waffle irons vary.

Ours take about 5-6 minutes per waffle to cook.

Serve hot. 

Top with dairy-free butter, syrup, berries, and even dairy-free whipped cream!

Hope you love these simple dairy-free, egg-free, vegan waffles as much as we do.

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.
