In a bowl, combine all the dry ingredients until well mixed.
Add in the oil, vanilla, almond milk, and lightly mix.
Add in the 1/4 cup of club soda and mix. Add more one tbsp at a time until the mixture is a thick batter. Wait for 2 minutes to see if the consistency of the batter gets thinner by itself. If not, add another tbsp of the carbonated water and mix in.The batter will initially feel sludgy and less But will increase in volume and become light after 5 minutes.
Heat your waffle iron, grease it a bit. Pour the thick sticky batter into the waffle iron to cook. These waffles rise a lot, so you'll want to use just a bit of batter and see how much of your waffle iron gets filled up when it rises.
Cook them until they are nice and crispy and done on all the edges and the center.
Remove the waffle from the waffle iron, and serve with a dollop of butter or whipped coconut cream, and a good drizzle of maple syrup.
If you are not planning on eating your waffles right away, you can simply place them on a wire rack to bring them to room temperature. Avoid placing freshly baked waffles on a plate as the steam will make them turn soggy on you.
Feeding a crowd? You can keep these warm by preheating the oven to 200°F and placing your buckwheat waffles in the warm oven on a wire rack, atop a baking sheet. This will keep them both warm AND crisp and you have all the time in the world to finish up all the rest of your waffles!
Give your waffle iron time to heat up all the way to ensure your waffle iron is really HOT before the batter touches it! And grease it well.
Use a plastic or rubber utensil to remove your waffles from the iron to not damage the non-stick surface.
You can totally add some shredded or chopped nuts to the batter.
No vanilla? A few drops of almond extract or coconut extract also add a nice touch.
