Gingerbread Waffles

I love those slow moments after Thanksgiving has passed when it’s officially okay to move from consuming obscene amounts of pumpkin to all the delicious joys of the Christmas season.

My own tastebuds prefer to let the days of November pass before readying themselves for peppermint and gingerbread.

These Gingerbread Waffles are often one of the first treats I prepare and ones my children enjoy help making.

How to Make Gingerbread Waffles

  1. Prep. Preheat your waffle iron and spray it with cooking spray.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients. In a large bowl whisk the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices together until well combined.
  3. Mix the wet ingredients. In a separate small bowl beat the eggs, oil, milk, greek yogurt, and molasses together until smooth.
  4. Combine. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and whisk until smooth and no lumps remain.
  5. Cook. Pour 1/2 cup of waffle mix (or the suggested amount according to your waffle iron manufacturer) onto the waffle iron and cook until golden brown.

Pro Tips for Making Waffles

  • After you remove each cooked waffle from the waffle iron. Lightly spray the grid again with cooking oil.
  • For evenly sized waffles pour the batter directly in the center of the waffle iron and don’t spread the batter. Let the iron spread it out when you close it.

Can I Freeze Waffles

Yes. Place them in a plastic ziptop freezer bag and store them in the freezer for up to 2 months. Before serving, thaw the waffles in the refrigerator and then toast in your oven to warm.
