One of the biggest ways to save money on groceries is by cooking at home. We make these Whole Wheat Freezer Waffles all the time! They’re one of our favorite breakfast recipes.
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.
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!
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.
Paired with a Perfect Hard Boiled Egg, it makes a healthy, hearty breakfast for my growing tweens and teen.
- 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
- Preheat waffle iron.
- In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and cinnamon (if desired).
- In a larger bowl, beat eggs with milk, oil and vanilla. Add dry mixture to wet ingredients and stir just until moistened.
- 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).
We use this $20 waffle iron from Amazon (thanks for using my link and supporting MoneywiseMoms at no cost to you).
We’ve had it for almost four years now, and it saves us a lot of money (totally worth the $20!).
When the kids need some variety, we switch over to our Whole Wheat Pancakes recipe. Again, we keep them in the fridge or freezer and they reheat in the toaster. So easy!
