  • 4 tablespoons butter (115 grams)
  • 2 cups almond milk (470 milliliters)
  • 2 eggs - separated
  • 2 tablespoons honey (30 milliliters)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (270 grams)
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • In a small saucepan over medium to medium-hight heat, melt the butter and cook, stirring often, until the butter becomes a light brown color, 5-8 minutes. Stir the butter often so it does not stick to the bottom of the pan and burn. Pour into a small bowl and let cool.
  • In a medium bowl, beat together the almond milk, egg yolks, honey and vanilla. Mix in the brown butter.
  • In a separate medium bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Slowly pour in the almond milk mixture, and mix well.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites using a hand mixer on low speed until soft peaks form.
  • Carefully fold the egg whites into the batter.
  • Heat waffle iron until very hot. Coat waffle iron with nonstick spray and carefully pour or spoon (I use a 1/2 cup measuring spoon) batter onto the waffle iron, quickly spreading it to cover the surface. The amount of batter you need will depend on your machine.
  • Cook waffles until golden brown and cooked through. See notes below on how to determine when a waffle is done.


To determine if a waffle is done, watch the steam escape from the waffle maker. When the steam becomes very thin and almost stops, the waffle will be ready. Once the steam completely stops, the waffle will be well-done.
