Easy Waffle Recipes for Kids

  • Michael Kraus

    Pop waffles in the toaster and set out a toppings bar. Or sprinkle a toasted waffle with cinnamon-sugar and top with mini-marshmallows and chocolate chips. Place under the broiler until the marshmallows are lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes.

    Tip: Ran out of sandwich bread? No prob—just use waffles instead!

    • Apples & Cheddar: Spread two toasted waffles with apple butter. Fill sandwich with cheddar cheese slices and thin apple slices.
    • Hummus & Veggies: Spread hummus on two toasted waffles. Fill sandwich with shredded carrots, cucumber slices, and quartered cherry tomatoes.
    • The New PB&J: Spread two toasted waffles with almond butter. Fill sandwich with your kid's fave berries.

    Tired of cutting waffles into bite-size pieces? Let your kids eat them off a stick! Here, we used the Babycakes Waffle Maker ($25; kohls.com) to make these heart-shaped waffles. Perfect for Sunday brunch!

    Tip: Make a big batch of waffles and freeze them. Pop 'em in the toaster just like store-bought ones.

    Waffles are perfect one-hand wonders for fams on the move! Spread jam, peanut butter, or almond butter on a toasted waffle and roll into a cone. Wrap with parchment paper and dust with confectioners' sugar.
