If you want to make homemade waffles without dairy, then look no further. This simple and delicious waffle recipe with no milk or butter is a great lactose-free option.
They are perfect for picky eaters and those who are lactose intolerant. If you swap the eggs for bananas, you can even make them vegan.
In this recipe, I substituted milk for water and butter for a vegan option. It came out just as fluffy and delicious as the original recipe.

How To Make Waffles With No Milk
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, cacao powder, and salt. Stir to combine and set aside.
In a second bowl, combine eggs, water, butter, and vanilla extract. Whisk to combine until frothy.
While stirring, add the wet ingredients to the dry. Continue whisking until smooth.
Heat the waffle maker and brush both sides with vegetable oil. Scoop the batter onto the waffle maker and close. Cook until you are easily able to open the waffle maker.
Transfer the waffle to a plate. Serve with strawberries on the side and top with your favorite pancake toppings.
