If you’re anything like us here at Kodiak Cakes HQ then our toaster-ready Power Waffles are your go-to breakfast throughout summer and the back-to-school season when it’s tough to find time to make a healthy breakfast for yourself, let alone the kids. One of the reasons Power Waffles are our go-to breakfasts this time of year is because they’re loaded with 100% whole grains and packed with 12 grams of protein per serving to make them a filling, great-tasting breakfast (or lunch) that takes less than ten minutes to make. But what if we were to tell you that our toaster waffles can be used for more than just breakfast? Keep reading to discover five of our best frozen waffle recipes that will give you a reason to reach for our Power Waffles even when it’s not breakfast!
Whether you’re headed out for an early morning hike or getting the kids’ sack lunches ready to go for a big field trip, this Waffle PB&J recipe is a must-try. All you have to do is throw a couple of extra waffles in the toaster while you’re making breakfast, and your lunch is halfway done! This PB&J sandwich recipe calls for our Chocolate Chip Power Waffles, but it tastes just as good using our Buttermilk & Vanilla Power Waffles and Blueberry Power Waffles, too. One reason why we prefer using our toaster waffles instead of bread to make PB&Js—besides the fact they’re loaded with whole grains and protein—is our waffles keep much better than bread when you stash them away in a hiking pack or sack lunch. After all, no one likes opening their lunch to find a soggy PB&J.
Great as an afternoon snack or light breakfast, this Tropical Fruit & Waffle Parfait recipe is a great frozen waffle recipe when you’re craving something light and refreshing. We’re swapping out the granola used in typical fruit parfait recipes with the great taste of 100% whole grains and protein from our Kodiak Cakes Power Waffles. Begin by toasting a few of our Buttermilk & Vanilla Power Waffles until they’re crispy and hot then cut the cooked waffles into one-inch cubes before layering the waffles, yogurt, and fruit in a parfait glass—this healthy frozen waffle recipe really is that simple!
It’s no secret that chicken and waffles is a great combination, but have you tried combining the two in a casserole? We accepted the challenge and created this Spicy Honey and Waffle Casserole recipe—and the results are, well, delicious. This homemade frozen waffle recipe is versatile and easy to make, making it one of the best frozen waffle recipes we’ve tried. All you have to do is preheat your oven, toast six Kodiak Cakes Homestyle Power Waffles, combine the listed ingredients in a casserole dish, and bake for 30-40 minutes before serving!
This Waffle Shape Cut-Outs Recipe is a creative way to mix up your breakfast routine or – unless you don’t want to encourage your kids to play with their food – incorporate into a fun afternoon activity you and your cubs can snack on when you’re done! We recommend trying your hand at making a bear (because bears are the best, obviously), but we even included instructions on how to make small bite-sized flowers for when you’d rather snack on something a bit lighter. There really is no limit to the amount of shapes you can create using this frozen waffle recipe. In fact, we encourage you to get creative and create your own unique shapes!
