Making our own waffles at home saves us tons of money over buying boxed frozen waffles.

I use whole wheat flour to add fiber, plus we avoid the preservatives in store-bought freezer waffles.

On a weekend morning, we make a double-batch of these Whole Wheat Freezer Waffles to get the kids through breakfasts on our busy weekday morning. They go straight from the freezer to the toaster.

We keep some in the fridge and put the rest in freezer bags in the freezer, but they don't last long at our house!

Paired with a Perfect Hard Boiled Egg, it makes a healthy, hearty breakfast for my growing tweens and teen.

Here's what you'll need to make these easy waffles:

It's very likely that you'll have most of these ingredients on hand already…that's what makes this such a great recipe to make for meal prep. There's nothing crazy to search for at the store, you can make a batch to have on hand all week long!

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla

We use this inexpensive waffle iron from Amazon. We've had it for almost four years now, and it saves us a lot of money (totally worth the small investment!).


Then the kids reheat their waffles in the toaster. We've had this Black & Decker toaster for over five years now!
 

How to make freezer waffles:

This super easy homemade waffles recipe comes together very quickly. The longest part of the whole recipe is cooking the waffles!

  1. Preheat waffle iron.In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and cinnamon (if desired).
  2. In a larger bowl, beat eggs with milk, oil and vanilla.
  3. Add dry mixture to wet ingredients and stir just until moistened.
  4. Pour batter in 1/2 cup amounts onto hot waffle iron. (With mine, I use cooking spray for the first waffle only, and each waffle takes 5-6 minutes).

    My kids love waffles! I really need to invest in a waffle iron - frozen ones from the store are definitely not as good for you as these would be.

    Whenever I make waffles or pancakes I make sure to make extras to freeze. You're right, it is a lifesaver! Thanks for sharing at My Busy Beehives #beeparty this week. Yum!
