I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday! I thought it would be appropriate to celebrate with Wednesday waffles! (I think I’m going to make that into a thing.)
I’m so excited to share these chai spiced waffles with you because this is the first guest post on Choosing Chia from the amazingly talented Ashley Collins of Nourish Me Mum!

Alright, let’s get to it Ashley!
You’ll welcome fall after tasting a bite of these Autumn inspired Waffles.
Waffles… Just that word makes me think of weekends, sleep-ins, cozy blankets, good company and the smell of freshly brewed coffee. This recipe is the perfect compliment to that scenario with the warm scent of cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom and ginger. This simple vegan, gluten free, nut free recipe is perfect for just about anyone. Adjust the amount of spice if you prefer a stronger flavour or add a little extra maple syrup if you have a sweet tooth.
Enjoy x Ash
- 1 cup Buckwheat Flour
- ¼ cup Tapioca Flour (also known as cassava or arrowroot)
- 2 tsp baking powder
- pinch of sea salt
- ½ tsp vanilla bean powder
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp ground ginger
- ¼ tsp nutmeg
- ⅛ tsp cardamom
- ⅛ tsp ground cloves
- 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon plant based milk, I use almond milk
- 3 tbsp Pure Maple Syrup
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- Pre-heat your waffle maker to a medium heat setting*
- In a large bowl combine flours, baking powder, salt, vanilla and spices mixing well with a fork.
- Add milk reserving the 1 tablespoon of milk, maple syrup and vinegar. Mix until just combined. Slowly add the remaining tablespoon of milk, folding through your batter until combined.
- Use a ½ cup* measuring cup to scoop the batter into the wells of your waffle maker.
- Cook each waffle on medium setting* or approximately 2:45-3 minutes. Place on a wire rack as you finish each waffle and start the next batch.
- Serve topped with Coconut yoghurt, maple syrup and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
- Note: Waffle makers vary in temperature and size. You may need to adjust the heat setting or quantity of batter required for each waffle.
