Dark Chocolate and Orange Waffles (Vegan)

Sharon Palmer

I love the flavor combination of dark chocolate and oranges, don’t you? Something about the zesty brightness of ranges adds a pop to the bitter darkness of chocolate. It doesn’t hurt that I have the most amazing oranges in my small orchard; thus, I’m always looking for new ways to showcase these fruits in my kitchen. This vegan recipe for dark chocolate waffles is filled with 100% whole grain flours and relies upon aquafaba (bean liquid) as an egg replacement. Topped with a sugar-free orange sauce, it’s so impressively beautiful, but as simple as can be. Try this recipe for your next brunch or lazy weekend breakfast.

Orange Sauce:

  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon vegan margarine
  • 2 medium oranges, peeled, sliced


  1. Place aquafaba (the liquid from one 15-ounce can of beans) into an electric mixer bowl with sugar. Whip for about 5 minutes, until soft peaks form.
  2. Gently fold in orange juice and zest, plant-based milk, vegetable oil and vanilla until smooth.
  3. Add flour, cornmeal, cocoa powder, and baking powder. Gently fold in just until combined.
  4. Preheat a waffle iron.
  5. Spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  6. Pour batter (about 1/3 cup) over hot waffle iron, close, and cook on medium-high setting, according to package directions, until crisp. Remove from waffle iron and repeat, making a total of 5 large waffles.
  7. Meanwhile, make Orange Sauce by placing orange juice and cornstarch in a small pot and whipping with a whisk until smooth. Add margarine and cook over medium heat, stirring with whisk, until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in sliced oranges.
  8. Serve waffles with orange sauce. Makes 5 servings.
