These waffles are soft and not overly sweet so they're perfect to serve with homemade strawberry syrup. 



Strawberry syrup

  • 2 cups chopped strawberries (fresh or frozen)
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Pink waffles

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil or melted butter
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup (plus more for serving)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 ½ cup gluten-free flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 flour)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp pitaya powder
  • Avocado oil in spray (for cooking, optional)
  • Optional for serving: strawberries or other berries, nut butter, yogurt, chopped nuts, hemp hearts


Strawberry Syrup

  • Add the chopped strawberries, water, and maple syrup to a saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil, lower the heat and let it simmer for 10 minutes until it’s reduced, slightly thicker, and the strawberries mushy.
  • Stir in the vanilla extract and set aside until ready to serve. You can warm the syrup back up right before serving.

Pink Waffles

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the almond milk, eggs, avocado oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and fine sea salt until smooth and well combined.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and pitaya powder.
  • Whisk everything together until combined.
  • Heat up your waffle iron and cook the waffles according to the manufacturer’s directions. I like to lightly spray my waffle iron with cooking spray and cook the waffles on medium heat for about 5 minutes until the waffle maker beeps.
  • Serve the waffles with strawberry syrup and any other toppings you like.


Keep them warm - To keep the waffles warm, lay them out on a baking sheet in a single layer and keep them in the oven preheated to 70C (150F) until you finish cooking the whole batch.

Refrigerator - Keep the waffles wrapped in plastic wrap or a container in the fridge for 2-3 days. Reheat them in your toaster until warm.

Freezer - Place waffles in a freezer-safe ziplock bag and store in the freezer for 2-3 months. The better the freezer, the longer the waffles will last. To reheat them, I do the same thing as refrigerated waffles - reheat them in the toaster, a little longer this time on the defrost setting.
