For milk, you can choose any vegetarian milk that fits your preference for the recipe, but we highly recommended almond milk because the milk can bring nutty flavor for your waffles. For the egg, you can use ol’ banana, yogurt or flax egg. You can make flax eggs by mixing flax with water, set aside until the mixture resembles the egg. We use yogurt in the recipe because it will give the waffle a soft, moist and fluffy texture.
