When it comes to breakfast, waffles are a timeless favorite. But why not take them to the next level with a burst of citrus flavor? With a vibrant combination of zesty citrus fruits, these waffles are sure to brighten up your morning and tantalize your taste buds. In this article, we will delve into the delightful world of citrus-infused waffles and provide you with a delicious recipe that will awaken your senses and leave you craving more.

Citrus fruits, such as oranges, lemons, and grapefruits, are renowned for their invigorating aromas and tangy flavors. Incorporating these fruits into your waffle batter adds a refreshing twist to the traditional breakfast treat. The natural acidity and citrusy notes perfectly complement the warm, fluffy waffles, resulting in a delightful combination that will awaken your taste buds and bring a ray of sunshine to your morning.



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Zest of 1 orange and 1 lemon
  • 1 3/4 cups plant-based milk (such as almond or oat milk)
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup melted vegan butter or coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat your waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and citrus zest. Mix well to evenly distribute the zest.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the plant-based milk, orange juice, lemon juice, melted vegan butter or coconut oil, and vanilla extract.
  4. Gradually pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring gently until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can result in dense waffles.
  5. Allow the batter to rest for about 5 minutes to activate the baking powder.
  6. Lightly grease the waffle iron with oil or cooking spray.
  7. Pour a portion of the batter onto the center of the preheated waffle iron, spreading it slightly with a spatula. Close the lid and cook according to your waffle iron’s instructions, usually about 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown.
  8. Carefully remove the cooked waffle from the iron and place it on a wire rack to cool slightly while you repeat the process with the remaining batter.
  9. Serve the zesty citrus waffles warm with your favorite toppings, such as fresh citrus segments, a dusting of powdered sugar, a drizzle of maple syrup, or a dollop of vegan whipped cream.

So, gather your ingredients, fire up your waffle iron, and treat yourself to a plate of these citrus-infused delights. Enjoy the sunny goodness and let the zing of citrus awaken your taste buds.
