Cashew-Date Waffles

Cashews, dates and oats are three of the most ubiquitous ingredients in the vegan pantry.  We combine all three in this recipe to make the quintessential vegan waffle.


Quantity Unit Name Link Alternatives
2 ½ cups cold water, divided
2 cups rolled oats
½ cup raw cashews
2-4 Medjool dates, pitted (or 1 tablespoon agave nectar)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon salt


  1. In a high-speed blender, blend 1 cup of water with the cashews until smooth.
  2. Then, add the pitted dates, salt, and vanilla extract and blend until smooth.
  3. Add the rolled oats and the remaining 1 ½ cup of water, and blend until smooth.
  4. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes before making the first waffle.
  5. Lightly spray PAM or olive oil on the surface of a heated waffle iron and then pour in ⅙ of the mixture.
  6. Bake until the waffle is golden to dark brown, approximately 5 minutes.

  8. Repeat for all 6 waffles and enjoy with optional toppings.
