90% of the time I’m doing my writing in the morning. My brain works best then + my kids are asleep (fingers crosses). I enjoy my hour of quiet so much. SO much. (too much? nahhh).

Freezer waffles simplify mornings

This waffle recipe is for anyone, anytime you need to simplify your morning. Hello, it’s made in the blender which couldn’t be easier!

I love to make a double batch (or triple – my family eats A LOT), and have breakfast waiting for us so I don’t have to cook during my Heather time.

My love for freezer waffles started when I began having babies. I loved making a huge batch of waffles to have on hand after having a baby. They defrost so well, and if you’re nursing or holding a kiddo, it’s easy to hold in one hand and eat while you do all the other mom things.

How to freeze waffles

So you want to make a big batch of waffles, but how do you freeze them?

  1. Make protein waffles (follow the awesome recipe below!)
  2. Let them fully cool. I like to use a cooling rack to allow them to cool faster.
  3. When fully cooled you have 2 options. If you don’t want your waffles to stick together, place them on a baking sheet (without stacking) and freeze until hard. Once fully frozen, you can stack them in freezer bags, label with the name and date you froze it. If you don’t mind your waffles sticking together (if you know you’ll frost a whole batch at a time), then simply stack your waffles and place in a freezer bag, label with the name and date and freeze for up to 6 months.

How to defrost frozen waffles

Here are a couple options for defrosting:

  • You can place the frozen waffles in the fridge to defrost over night. I’d suggest this if you freeze them in a block together. Once defrosted warm in the toaster to heat and add crunch.
  • If you froze them individually, you can grab what you need, pop it in the toaster and voila, perfectly warmed and crunchy waffle!
  • Alternately, you can microwave the waffle for 30-60 seconds to warm, however they’re be more soft than crunchy. I love the toaster option for waffles because it brings the crunch back to life.

Hi Heather! I love your ideas and workouts! Can’t wait to try these waffles. Will they work without the cottage cheese? Thanks!

Hey Christy! They really don’t work as well without the cottage cheese. I’ve made them before subbing yogurt and it’s not as good! But if you try a variation do report back!

These were lovely with a great texture! Our kiddo isn’t a fan of waffle toppings, so he has them plain. We add a tbsp of maple syrup to the batter so he’ll eat them as they are really savory without it and with no toppings. Thanks!

This has become our Saturday morning tradition. So easy to blend the batter up quickly and the texture is perfect every time. We also like that they aren’t sweet, so we can add whatever toppings we’re in the mood for. Thanks for the awesome recipe!

Hello and thanks for your lovely breakfast recipes. Tried the cinnamon roll custard oats and the banana egg oat pancakes : fabulous. the cinnamon oats keep my daughter and I going for hours; when porridge usually leaves us starving after 90 minutes.

Quick question: is it 1 + 3/4 cups of oats or just 3/4 cup of oats? Looking forward to trying these waffles – as soon as I can get some cottage cheese – a bit tricky in France!

Hi Sarah! So glad you loved the other recipes! The waffles call for 1 + 3/4 cups oats. I’ll also make it more clear in the recipe above.
