Raw waffles?! Yes, anything is possible when you have a creative mind like Megan McMurray of Decadently Raw! This is a truly masterful recipe, decadent yes, but also surprisingly easy to make. If you’ve ever wondered if it’s possible to make raw vegan waffles the answer is most definitely, and with this recipe now is your chance to shine! The waffle base is a simple mixture of freshly ground flax, pecans, and soaked buckwheat groats. A perfect fusion of decadence and healthy nutrition!

Yield: 6 large or 12 small waffles


Waffle Batter:

  • 1 ½ Cups flax powder
  • 1 ½ Cups of pecans (on nut of your choice)
  • 3 Cups soaked buckwheat

Caramel Sauce Topping:

  • 8 tablespoons cashews or macadamia butter
  • 2 tablespoons coconut butter
  • 4 tablespoons coconut water- room temperature,
  • 2 tablespoons yacon syrup
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup pinch of vanilla bean and 1/4 teaspoon salt to a blender.
  • *To spice up this recipe you can add cacao nibs or chopped nuts. For example turn the caramel sauce into a turtle caramel sauce by adding cacao nibs and chopped pecans.

Dark Dipping Chocolate (chocolate sauce):

  • 1 Cup cacao butter
  • 1 Cup cacao powder
  • 2 Tablespoons lucuma
  • pinch vanilla bean
  • 1/2 cup clear agave or sweetener of choice.
  • *Optional- superfood powders 1 Tablespoon collectively.


Waffle Batter:

1)Mix ingredients in a big mixing bowl. Affix your blank plate attachment to your twin gear masticating juicer (I like the Green Star Champion Juicer) and feed mixture through the juicer, creating the dough.

2) Take a waffle maker and cover the bottom with plastic wrap.

3) Spoon in a bit of dough and spread it evenly with your hands, making sure it covers the entire waffle iron. Making sure not to pile it too thick or spread it too thin.

4) Lay a piece of plastic wrap across the top side of your waffle and press the 2 sides of the waffle iron together firmly to achieve a nice waffle pattern on both sides. Using the plastic wrap, lift the waffle out of the waffle iron and lay bottom side up on a dehydrator tray. Trim off any unclean edges with a butter knife.

5) Dehydrate for 8 hours at 110 degrees.

6) Pull waffles out and top them as you please- fruit, chocolate sauce, caramel sauce (instructions below), wild jungle peanut butter or a combination.

Caramel Sauce Topping:

1) Blend ingredients until smooth

Dark Dipping Chocolate (chocolate sauce):

1) Using a low heat source, melt the cacao butter, preferably in a glass bowl. At the same time, place your sweetener in a dish and heat that up as well. I prefer to use my dehydrator for this.

2) Sift all powders in the melted cacao butter (This includes any superfood powders you may want to add.) and whisk together.

3) Place cacao butter/powder mixture back into the dehydrator for 5-10 minutes.

4) Take heated cacao mixture and add the heated sweetener. Whisk vigorously.

5) After the mixture is thoroughly combined, you have a chocolate that is ready to use for dipping or drizzling.
