I use a basic waffle recipe and replace the egg with a product called Egg Replacer. It is made by ENERG and I bought it at a health food store. It contains no egg or animal proteins. I have used it in all my baking and have had good results.

I was faced with the same dilema egg free waffles, pancakes, cakes, etc. I ordered the cookbook from FAN and they have some fantastic recipes (some of the cakes need a little jazzing up with bananas for more moistness) but overall the cookies and other recipes I tried were great. The cookbook only took 2 days to arrive at my house and it has been alifesaver for my kids especially when we are going to a party and I know they cant eat the cake, now I can just bring my own!!!
Good luck! there is life without egg!!!

We don't have egg allergies, but I often use FAN's egg-substitute when we've run out! It tastes great, works perfectly, and it's easy to do. You mix 1 1/2 T of cooking oil, 1 1/2 T of water, and 1/2 tsp of baking powder. Stir it up, and use it as a substitute for 1 egg.

My son's allergic to egg, peanut and tree nut so his food allergist recommended we buy a new waffle maker(one that has never had egg or nuts in it.) This was due too cross-contamination issues. I had a waffle iron which I could take out and clean but doctor feels that because of all the ridges in waffle iron no way to truely get it clean. For my son's waffle iron I bought one that makes round waffles old waffle iron makes square ones so I can keep these straight with leftovers in the freezer. I use regular receipe but use 1 1/2 T butter,1 1/2T milk,and 1 teaspoon baking powder per egg being replaced.

I just bought "egg replacer" by ENERG and made pancakes using a traditional recipe (NOT the one on the package of egg replacer) and my whole family was THRILLED to have "real" pancakes again!! I'm sure it would work for waffles.

4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
3 tablespoons sugar
2 cups buttermilk
4 tablespoons oil or applesauce

2. PANCAKE COOKING DIRECTIONS: In a large skillet on medium heat, melt butter and brown pancakes on both sides just as you would any other pancakes.

I was told by ENER-G that they do not guarantee any of their products to be free of cross-contamination. They do make several peanut and tree nut products. If anyone has heard otherwise, please post. (I think it was around last spring when I contacted them)

If you go to their website, [url="http://www.ener-g.com,"]www.ener-g.com,[/url] there is an incredible amount of allergy information and you can search their products online for allergens. Most of the stuff is not safe. Some is. check it out. it is worth it. wish more companies spelled it out like that.

I simply use (usu. lowfat) Bisquick(Betty Crocker) according to the directions and omit the eggs. I have used the Ener-G egg replacer or some extra baking powder at times, but not even all the time. There is plenty of leavening in it.
I have also added Apple flavored instant oatmeal packets(brand of your choice if in your comfort zone) and wheat germ, and do need the added leavening then. This is tasty and I have a very picky eater, so adds some extra fiber and nutrients and calories! Hope that helps. mish
