  1. In a large mixing bowl, blend together all the dry ingredients, mixing well with a whisk.

  2. Add in the almond milk, oil and vanilla and stir gently. Make sure all the dry mix is incorporated into the batter off the bottom of the bowl, but don't over mix. Stir gently. A few, small lumps are okay.

  3. Allow the batter to sit for 5-10 minutes. It will become slightly "puffy".

  4. Grease your waffle iron and ladle on some batter. Cook according to your waffle maker's instructions.

  5. When done, remove from griddle and allow to cool just slightly before serving.

  6. Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy.
