Everyone knows the month of August is back to school, but for me, these freezer friendly whole grain waffles are also back to childhood.

Last week it was these homemade blueberry Nutri Grain bars and this week it’s freezer friendly waffles! It might be kind of odd, but I’m loving these childhoods eats, especially with everything that’s been happening in life, it’s nice to be going back to comfort foods from when I was a kid!

Growing up Eggo Waffles and Einsteins Bagels were pretty much breakfast staples…meaning my mom never ran out…hey, she needed to be able to sustain life for my brothers! Fortunately, I could get beyond waffles and bagels, with good old toast and eggs + bowls of cereal or just fresh fruit, but the boys…not so much. However, even today I’ll sometimes catch myself missing that buttery deliciousness of a good ole freezer waffle. I know, I know, like what?! But guys, come on…those waffles were kind of good. Granted, a lot of things are good when LOADED up with butter, but I do remember loving them. This is scary to admit, but my brothers probably still eat them…often.

All that said, I can’t even begin to remember how long it’s been since I had a waffle from the freezer, so my memory might be a little off.

Nevertheless, I am so happy to be bringing a much healthier, and much, much more delicious, breakfast option to the table today.

Homemade freezer friendly waffles…with whole grains, plus my favorite Almond Breeze Almondmilk. Yes, REAL food…Yeah!

The waffles are made up of the simplest ingredients. Whole wheat flour, oats, almondmilk, eggs, a little vanilla, and a pinch of cinnamon.

Simple.

Then just cook them up in a waffle iron (any shape or size works, but I love this square waffle iron). If you can’t eat the waffles right then, simply let them cool, freeze, and when ready to eat just pop them into the toaster (this is my favorite toaster, so cute). These are such a delicious option for busy mornings.

You can top these waffles however you please, but for quick mornings I love smearing them with a little butter, topping generously with fresh fruit, and drizzling with maple syrup.

These certainly are not the Eggo waffles I grew up with, but that’s A-OK because these are a giant upgrade –> hello to soft, fluffy whole grain waffles that will keep us (meaning your kids, husband, wife, boyfriends or whomever) full until lunch.

Love this!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. 1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the Almondmilk, eggs, melted unsalted butter, honey, and vanilla. Add the flour, oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt and stir until just combined. It's OK if the batter is a little lumpy. Allow the batter to sit 5-10 minutes.

    2. Preheat your waffle iron.

    3. Cook the waffles according to your waffle iron's directions. Serve topped with fresh fruit and maple.

    4. TO FREEZE: Cool the waffles completely on wire racks. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the waffles in one even layer. Place another sheet of parchment over the waffles, then arrange another layer of waffles over top (see photo). Freeze 2 hours and then transfer the waffles to a freezer safe bag. To cook, add the waffles to a toaster and toast until warmed through and crisp.
