Vegan Waffles

What makes them vegan? They use applesauce instead of eggs. Pretty simple.

1 3/4 cup flour (always get unbleached flour)
2 tsp baking powder
1 TBS sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup applesauce
1 3/4 cup milk (soymilk, silknog, whatever)
1/2 cup vegetable oil

1. Mix dry ingredients.

2. Combine applesauce and milk. Stir into dry mix. Stir in oil. Pour into wafflemaker. You know what to do from here. :)
