Preheat waffle iron.
In a large mixing bowl add the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon and gently whisk to combine.
In a separate bowl beat the egg and sugar (or maple syrup) together.
To the egg and sugar add the oil, vanilla and milk and whisk together until well combined.
Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and gently fold until all ingredients combined. Do not overmix. There will be some lumps.
Let the batter sit for about 5 min.
Cook the waffles according to waffle iron instructions.
*The batter will yield about 8-10 pieces of waffle, depending on the size of your waffle iron.
**Waffles can be frozen.
