Vegan Activated Charcoal Waffles aka Goth Waffles

Vegan Activated Charcoal Waffles aka Goth Waffles


Happy #NationalWaffleDay! A lot of people ask me how I come up with my recipes, and it's not exactly a simple answer. I find inspiration from a lot of places (one of them being what ingredients I have on hand at the time) but one thing that I can say is a common thread through all of my processes, is that God gives me a vision and guides me through it. That's where the D.I.D. in my brand comes from: Divine Intervention Design. I believe that God will lead and guide us all to find out what we need to do to be well, if we are willing to listen.

So that brings us to today's recipe. I have no idea what inspired it honestly. I previously did a post about activated charcoal, how to use it and it's possible hazards. But I got the idea to make some cool-looking vegan activated charcoal waffles and they turned out just like the vision!

Read on below for the simple recipe.


Ingredients (Waffles)

  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour

  • 2 cups of unsweetened almond milk (or your fave vegan milk)

  • 4 tablespoons of melted coconut oil

  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder

  • 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract

  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon activated charcoal

  • 1 pinch of salt

Ingredients (Nice Cream)

  • 2-3 frozen bananas

  • 1/2 t activated charcoal

  • heaping spoonful of chilled coconut cream (just the cream, no liquid)

Ingredients (syrup)

  • 2 T agave

  • 1/2-1 t activated charcoal


  1. For the waffles: Combine dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Do the same with the wet ingredients. Using a mixer, slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well. Prepare according the instructions of your waffle maker. For mine, this recipe made about 3 waffles.

  2. For the nice cream: Combine bananas and coconut cream in a food processor and blend until smooth. Add your activated charcoal and blend again. Do not over-blend or your nice cream will melt and be runny. This is fine, it doesn't change the flavor, but the texture will be different.

  3. For the syrup: Combine agave and activated charcoal, mix well and use as you would regular syrup.
