Good morning!  Out of eggs?  Yes, you can make delicious waffles without them!

Eggless Waffles

Last week I was all set to make waffles in my new waffle maker  (*this is an affiliate link) for the kids before they left to spend 4 days with Grandma and Grandpa – just as a special little treat.  But when I opened up the fridge I saw that I didn’t have eggs or milk.  Oops.  What to do?  I had a very sad little bunch of faces to deal with!  So I did a quick investigation and found a recipe for waffles with no eggs.  Hmmm.  To say that I was skeptical is kind of an understatement, but I decided to give them a  try anyway.  And wow were we all surprised.  Every last crumb was gobbled up! 

So this recipe is now my go-to in the event should I run out of eggs again.  And maybe not even then, because they’re so good we’d eat them any time!  Enjoy!

**  If you would like your waffles to have more flavour, try adding more vanilla (2 – 3 tsp), and/or 1 tsp of ground cinnamon.  **

These Eggless Waffles are easy to make, with simple ingredients you likely have on hand! They taste like the real thing!

  • Author: Jo-Anna Rooney
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 10 regular waffles 1x
  • Category: Breakfast


  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 cups milk (I used 1 can of condensed milk topped off with water because that’s all I had on hand)
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 tbsp melted butter


  1. Combine the flour, baking powder and sugar.
  2. In a separate bowl mix together the milk, oil, water, vanilla and butter.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and mix together gently. As with all pancake batters, it should be slightly lumpy.
  4. Let the batter sit for a few minutes to give it time to puff up.
  5. Once your waffle maker is ready to go, depending on the size of your maker, scoop the batter in and enjoy! (for my maker I used 1/4 cup batter for each waffle)

  1. Well they look really good. I didn’t know you could make them
    without eggs. I think I’ll try using plain yogurt for a batch
    instead of the milk & eggs next since these look so nice.

  2. this recipe is so much better than the other eggless recipes I have tried. They came out really good. Thanks for sharing this recipe. You have a beautiful website.

    Thanks for sharing:)

  5. Thanks for sharing! My 2 year old asked for waffles this morning and with the snow and ice i wasn’t about to head to the store for eggs. Glad i googled eggless waffles and found this!:)

  6. We are also snowed/iced in, but I woke up craving waffles this morning and realized we didn’t have any eggs. This recipe exceeded my expectations. It was easy and delicious. Thanks!

  7. I LOVE this waffle recipe! Both times I made these waffles I added salt on the finished product and they tasted just like pretzels. They taste like waffles when you put syrup on them too.

  8. hi Jo-Anna — the low-down: we’re posted in South America, our first year, and International Feast is coming up (last year they had 1000+ visitors)! we’re the only Canadian family but are bent to have our Canadian booth proud and… well, polite :)! i need to make TONS of waffles to go with Maple Syrup, and this is an absolute shoe-in!!! Thanks a ton!
    ONE QUESTION: do i need to use condensed milk (none here!)… can i use powdered milk or liquid milk, or will it make the waffle soggy? HELP!
    … will let you know how we did after the event…

    1. Hi! Sounds like such an exciting adventure!! Great idea making waffles with maple syrup! Yes, you can use any kind of milk – I only used condensed milk because that’s all I had around, but any milk will do!

      Happy waffle making, and good luck!

  9. Just made these waffles and they came out great. Much better than some other eggless recipes I’ve tried that come out sour. I used almond milk and earth balance margarine to make them vegan and they were delicious! Thanks for the recipe.

  10. Today is the second time i came to use your eggless waffle recipe and it never disappoints! Thanks for posting this Jo-Anna!

  11. Just came across your recipe as I’m without eggs… added 1/2can pumpkin to the recipe and coconut oil in place of vegetable. Delicious!

  12. these were AMAZING I made them for myself and had enough for ten waffles all together. my 3 yr old Niece doesn’t even like waffles but the moment she tasted these she asked for more she had four all together I topped them with melted butter & Butter Pecan Syrup they were great!

  13. Thank you SO much for the wonderful recipe! We made them this morning and my kids kept commenting on how they were good and crunchy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. We have made a lot of different egg free waffles over the years and this is by far the simplest and most delicious recipe yet. I have it on a sticky note on my fridge now! 🙂 I didn’t add the butter and it was still great. We will have to add the butter for our weekend breakfast. Thank you for a great recipe!

    1. We loved these so much we made them again this morning! I added a tablespoon of cocoa powder and the kids loved them. Can’t wait to try them with chocolate chips or blueberries, etc. I am going to try this recipe and make pancakes…just leave out the oil. I bet that would be great too! Thank you again!

  14. Thanks for the recipe! I don’t eat eggs often, so this turned out really well. I doubled the recipe for more people and it was great!! I also added a little salt for taste 🙂

  15. Wow! delicious! My youngest is allergic to eggs and this is the first recipe we’ve found that tastes just as good as the regular version. Hurray!!!

  16. I don’t know what I did wrong, but the recipe came out bland, and kind of soggy 🙁 I even left them in the waffle iron longer than normal to try to crisp them up. Great idea though, for those days when you wake up craving waffles and realize you don’t have eggs! Might try again with a few additions.
