Cinnamon Toast Waffles are easy, cinnamon-y, and richly flavored. They’re light, fluffy, and crisp – just as a good waffle should be. They’re so delicious, that they kind of make us wonder why we don’t just add cinnamon to everything we make before 10 am.
Simple baking powder takes care of the leavening in these airy waffles. And a simple blend of spices packs an amazing amount of flavor into each perfectly shaped waffle square. We topped ours with simple maple syrup and an extra dusting of cinnamon. A compote or coconut whipped cream would be our top choices for next time.
These waffles were made with a Cuisinart Griddle. I bought the waffles iron inserts separately because I like that you can remove them for cleaning. Our 1 piece waffle iron from a decade ago was “wipe down only” for cleaning and that just never seemed right to me. The Cuisinart makes 4 waffles at a time, and each one takes about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of batter to make a fully formed but not overflowing waffle. Single waffle makers take about 1 – 1 1/2 cups of batter per waffle.

Cinnamon Toast Waffles (Vegan)
- 2⅔ cups All purpose flour 320g
- 2 cups Plant based milk
- ½ cup Olive oil
- ¼ cup Organic cane sugar
- 2 Flax eggs see notes
- 3 tbsp Baking powder
- 1½ tbsp Cinnamon
- 2 tsp Baking soda
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- ½ tsp Sea salt
- ½ tsp Nutmeg
- Prepare your flax eggs – see notes below
- Preheat your waffle iron to 400°F
- In a mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg) and use a whisk to stir until well combined.
- Add the milk, oil, sugar, vanilla and prepared flax eggs to the dry ingredients, and whisk until well combined – but resist the urge to overmix!
- Spray or brush your waffle iron with oil to prevent sticking, and scoop your batter into the waffle iron. Each waffle iron will hold a different amount of batter, so you may need to experiment with the first waffle or two, to find the right amount of batter per waffle. My Cuisinart 4 Waffle plates hold ⅓ – ½ cup of batter per waffle. These waffle puff up A LOT during cooking, so add less batter at first, and go up from there if needed, or they will spill over during the first few minutes of cooking.
- Cook about 6 minutes, or until light brown and crisp on the outside. The waffles should pull away easily from the waffle iron when they're finished cooking. Repeat cooking steps until all of the batter is used – including oiling the waffle iron between each waffle.
- Serve immediately and Enjoy!
