Waffles are a great breakfast item to have on hand to serve to your little one. You can definitely pick up a pack of frozen waffles from a grocery store, but it is so simple to customize different waffle flavors and textures on your own! I love incorporating veggies, fruits, and healthy fats into waffles and batch making them to freeze and serve throughout a busy week. Here are some waffle variations, both savory and sweet that you can try for your little ones!
1. SPINACH BANANA WAFFLES
Spinach and banana is a classic flavor combo that is a great way to incorporate veggies into your little one’s meals. Blend spinach into your waffle batter for fun-colored, nutritious pancakes that your little ones are sure to love!
2. CINNAMON APPLE WAFFLES
These cinnamon apple waffles use apples as the main sweetener instead of bananas. They are soft-textured and perfectly spiced!
3. PIZZA WAFFLES
Who says waffles have to be sweet?! These savory pizza waffles are great to serve up for lunch or dinner. Serve them with a side of marinara sauce to dip these cheesy waffles into!
4. PUMPKIN WAFFLES
It’s never a bad time for all things pumpkin flavored! I love making these waffles all year round for that rich pumpkin flavor and taste.
5. LEFTOVER MASHED POTATO WAFFLES
These leftover mashed potato waffles are another savory option that is great for lunch or dinner. It is a great way to repurpose leftovers to serve in a fun new way!
6. STUFFLED CROFFLES (CROISSANT WAFFLES)
Have you ever heard of croffles?! Croffles are a crossover between buttery croissants and soft and fluffy waffles. Stuff croissant dough with fillings of your choice and cook them in a waffle maker for a special sweet treat!
7. BLUEBERRY BANANA WAFFLES
Blueberries are a great way of adding natural sweetness to waffles. Fold a few blueberries into this banana-based waffle batter for bursts of berry sweetness in every bite!
8. CHEESY ZUCCHINI WAFFLES
These savory waffles are a great way to incorporate zucchini into your little one’s diet. Zucchini can be pretty bland served on its own, but when combined with cheese and cooked into these mini waffles they make the perfect lunch!
9. BANANA OAT WAFFLES
Banana oat waffles are a classic waffle recipe perfect for babies beginning baby-led weaning. They are soft textured and naturally sweetened with bananas but can be customized with add-ins for an extra special treat!
10. WAFFLE SANDWICH
A fun way to serve a sandwich is to cook it for a few minutes in a waffle maker! Take your classic PB&J or cheese sandwich and toast it up in the waffle maker for a fun new way to serve a classic sandwich to your little one!
