Here’s a quick homemade breakfast idea for busy weekday mornings!
Consider making a batch of the best waffles with this recipe, freezing them, and then quickly popping them in the toaster whenever you’re in the mood for a warm homemade waffle. This is such a smart make-ahead breakfast strategy that actually works perfectly!
Easy breakfast recipes are the BEST kind, and this one is a winner!
Not only are these waffles great tasting, but they are also healthier and less expensive than their store bought counterpart! Plus, it takes just a few simple pantry ingredients you may already have on hand to make delicious waffles.
Hip Tip: Don’t have a waffle iron? Use your favorite pancake recipe instead and freeze! In case you’re in the market for one, I do love my Cuisinart waffle maker as it’s easy to use and makes perfect waffles!

Make these homemade waffles for special weekend mornings, or freeze and save them for busy weekday breakfast meals.
- 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
Tips For Freezing Waffles:
- I like to double this recipe and freeze waffles flat on a cookie sheet for a couple hours. Then, transfer the waffles to a freezer bag and use parchment paper between each layer to avoid waffles from sticking.
- 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.
- If you have a food saver type of machine, this would be a great way to use it to seal and freeze waffles!
- Waffles should stay good for up to a few months. To reheat, just pop a frozen waffle into the toaster.
