vegan baklava wafflesIt’s cold and damp and I needed waffles. Okay, I eat waffles almost every weekend, in case you couldn’t tell by all of my posts. Baklava came up at home (“why don’t you make me baklava anymore?”).

I only had walnuts, and that was totally fine. I used agave instead of honey and I doubt it made much difference. I had my waffle maker on high so they got a bit too crispy (if they can be too crispy at our house) but still really tasty.
