Vegan Maple Cream Cheese and Waffles

8 Flares 8 Flares ×

On the weekends I like to cook breakfast.  It is a nice way to spend time with the family after a busy week.  Sometimes I make a tofu scramble with home fries but our favorite is usually pancakes or waffles.  Last week I made up some waffles with a little shredded carrot and some carrot cake spices.  I decided that plain maple syrup was not going to be enough.  These waffles needed a delicious Maple Cream Cheese topping.  It was so easy to make and truly AMAZING to eat!vegan maple cream cheese on waffles

maple cream cheese ingredients

All you need to make this Maple Cream Cheese is

1 container of cream cheese,  I used an 8 oz tub of Tofutti brand cream cheese.

1 Cup of maple syrup

and a blender

Toss the cream cheese and syrup in the blender, mix on high until they are full incorporated.

You can add a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg if you choose.

You can also add less maple syrup if you want a thicker sauce.

Now taste and be amazed at how simple but decadent this combination is.

We used ours on waffles but it would also work as a dip for graham crackers, or drizzled on a cupcake, or scone.  But, you might just find you favorite way to eat it is by the spoonful.

  • Wow. It looks both easy and delicious. I will have to go out and buy some waffles soon. I think I will keep the thick syrup instead of thinning it. Mmmm! Thanks for sharing!

  • This sounds good, definitely will try. We often combine equal parts peanut butter and maple syrup for a caramel-like topping… great with apple slices on waffles!
