Make & Freeze Homemade Waffles


Make and Freeze Homemade Waffles for an Easy Breakfast All Week Long Hip2Save.com

Here’s a quick homemade breakfast idea for busy weekday mornings! Consider making a batch of waffles, freezing them and then quickly popping them in the toaster when you are ready to eat. Not only are they great tasting, but they are also healthier and less expensive than their store bought counterpart!

Don’t have a waffle iron? Use your favorite pancake recipe instead and freeze!

Homemade Waffles

Recipe adapted from AllRecipes.com


2 cups flour (all-purpose or wheat)
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 and 3/4 cups milk
2 eggs
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
Make and Freeze Delicious Waffles for Easy Weekday Breakfasts Hip2Save
Directions: Preheat waffle iron. Beat eggs in large mixing bowl until fluffy. Add in the rest of ingredients and mix until smooth. Spray waffle iron with nonstick spray. Pour mix onto iron and cook until golden brown – about 5 minutes or so. Place waffles on cooling racks. Serve warm and add desired toppings. Makes about 7-8 waffles in my Cuisinart WAF-300 Belgian Waffle Maker.

Freezing Directions: I like to double this recipe and freeze waffles flat on a cookie sheet for a few hours. Use parchment paper between each layer so waffles don’t stick. When completely frozen, place waffles in freezer bags. To remove any excess air in freezer bag, just insert a straw into the freezer bag after filling bag with waffles, close bag around straw, and suck out the air. Waffles should stay good for up to a few months. To reheat, just pop a frozen waffle into the toaster.

    I love doing this!! I pop them in the toaster and they are exactly like the store bought ones, but a lot healthier and cheaper!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yes! My family is obsessed with waffles, and the organic ones are pricey, plus these are so much better tasting 🙂

  2. Laura

    I’ve been doing this for my kids for years. They taste better than Eggo

    • Erin

      Yup. Eggo is the reason I never liked waffles; that’s what I thought waffles tasted like. You don’t even have to separate them with parchment or wax paper as long as you cool them on a cooling rack before freezing. Hmmm. . . . We haven’t had yeasted waffles in a long time. Maybe I should go make batter!

  3. Cat

    I do this with french toast also, prepare as usual then instead of frying it I cook it on my foreman grill (watch it closely it cooks really fast). Follow Colins instructions with the straw then freeze …….I pop them in the toaster or even in the microwave (toaster IMO is much better)

    • Jen M

      Oh that’s a great idea!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh great idea!

  4. Mary

    I just started doing this, earlier in the year and it’s great. Saves so much time and the waffles are great after being in freeze. I put waxed paper between waffles and then in ziplock bag.

  5. Amanda

    We have been making extra and sending them for lunches. Sunbutter and jelly is a yummy waffle sandwich for school 🙂

  6. Jill

    I do this, too! I find they taste even better if you heat up the waffle iron and stick them in again to reheat. No mess but some may want to stick to the toaster since it is quicker. Yummy

  7. Jenna

    I just made pumpkin waffles this week, and froze a batch! Thanks for the tips about using a straw; I didn’t know that.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh yum! That sounds awesome.

  8. Brooke

    How long can keep them in freezer?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Up to 3 months.

  9. J

    I love doing this! My kiddos get a homemade yet quick breakfast!

  10. Emilie

    Lina you always have the best recipes and ideas!! Thank you so much

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Glad you like! Thanks for reading 🙂

  11. D.J.

    Thanks for the recipe ♡♡♡ We use whole wheat put peanut butter or cream cheese for a quick breakfast.

  12. Stacey

    So if I wanted to add anything to it just do it, like blueberries, chocolate chips?

    • meli

      Yes. I make a variety of pancakes and waffles with mashed bananas, banana walnut, blueberries etc.

      I also like to add a few tbsp of ground flax seed and / or wheat germ. I add a little extra milk otherwise the batter gets too thick. ,

  13. cecilia

    I love waffles! thanks collin

  14. Tammy

    Thank you, will have to try this recipe.

  15. 78Brownie

    Nice recipe and idea. I pinned and added that waffle maker to my wish list.

  16. April

    I bought a waffle iron but I’ve only used it once. The batter kept sticking & it was such a pain to clean. It made me feel kind of dumb, since the machine is supposed to make it kind of idiot proof. Do you need to spray it with oil each time you put new batter in? Any tips for cleaning it more easily? Thanks!

    • Oshea

      Yes. Spray in between each batch.

  17. Elena

    I do this with pancakes also. My kids love them and I know exactly what’s in them.

  18. Tammy

    We always have waffle batter leftover to make two more squares than what we need for breakfast and I freeze those two and keep a bag of frozen extras on hand to eat another morning.

  19. Latasha

    I haven’t done this with waffles (waffle iron broke, hoping for a good deal during Black Friday this year!) but we do this with french toast and I make pancakes small enough to be popped in the toaster too. With pancakes I can make a variety such as regular, blueberry, chocolate chip and the kiddo doesn’t get bored with breakfast as quickly.

    • Amy

      I use an ice cream scoop to pour my pancake batter, you get perfect same sized pancakes every time-no fighting on whose is bigger 🙂

  20. nancy

    What a great idea! I’ve never thought of this so thanks for sharing Lina!
    BTW–I love reading your recipes so please keep posting them. I am going to
    make and freeze some waffles this weekend!

  21. lily

    I have been looking for a good waffle iron. Anyone have any recommendations? Thanks in advance.

    • Wilton Towe

      Lily, Amazon always has a good price on waffle irons.

  22. L

    Mine only cooked 4 mins on Krups today & were REALLY crusty. :/
    Also, what do u use to get even fills w/out overflowing?

  23. Katy

    I tried this for the first time and they just didnt taste right. They don’t taste good at all.

  24. Char

    I freeze my leftover ones. But where did you get your waffle iron? Mine is round. These would freeze nicer and fit in the toaster better

  25. Roz

    I do this with pancakes, waffles and even French toast. I put them in portion sized bags or containers. It works great. They don’t last very long.

  26. Carolyn

    I just made this waffle recipe in a gluten free version. Just replaced the flour with a gluten free all purpose flour mix that I bought at Walmart. Easy peasy. They turned out well too. This recipe is a “keeper”. I will use my food sealer to make individual serving packages to put in the freezer. I did freeze them first before I put them in the sealer bags.

  27. liana

    hi! i tried making these on my waffle maker but they came out too thin 🙁 how much batter should i put in each side?

  28. Luna

    I would say this is a great idea for toddlers that are teething and it’s healthy just pull it out the Freezer

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh great idea!
