  4. Mix together the dry dredge ingredients with a whisk until combined. Set aside.

  5. Set up dredging station -- coat the mushrooms in the wet dredge, then the dry dredge, and again in the wet drudge, and finally the dry dredge. Double dipping in this case is a good thing because it will create a thick crunchy coating.

  6. Spray with oil and put into a 400 degree air fryer for 10-12 minutes until golden brown and crispy, You'll want to flip the mushrooms over about half way through the cooking time and spray the side with oil

3 T water

1 c spelt flour

1 T baking powder

1 T apple cider vinegar

1/2 lemon - juiced

1 T sugar or agave

1 t vanilla

1 T melted vegan butter

1 1/4 c non-dairy milk


Waffle Steps:

  2. Make flax egg by combing the ground flax with water. Stir and set aside.

  3. Make buttermilk by combing the non-dairy milk and the vinegar. Set aside.

  4. In a mixing bow, combine the dry ingredients.

  5. Once the flax has absorbed the water and created an egg like consistency, add it to the milk and stir to combine.

  6. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry and stir to combine. Don't overmix, just enough to combine.

  7. Pour approximately 1/2 cup of the batter onto the waffle iron and cook according to directions for your waffle maker.

  8. If you want crispier waffles, you can add oil in place of butter to the batter. This recipe is also fantastic for pancakes too, just omit the flax egg.
