Cinnamon Toast Waffles

Cooking breakfast for my crowd has always been a thing.

If you’re a busy mom, like I am, you know that breakfast is usually a hurried event and many times eaten on the GO (thank goodness for no bake breakfast cookies, right!).

Once a week, usually as a special breakfast on weekends, I like to actually MAKE something (as opposed to popping something in the toaster or cereal).

BUT, my fussy eaters are pretty particular about ANY breakfast food that doesn’t have a cute cartoon character on the box.

Then, I made these cinnamon toast waffles and my goodness, they are SO delicious!

The best part is that my picky eaters like my homemade cinnamon toast waffles BETTER than the frozen Eggo waffles…

and so do I!

I’ve even taken my waffle iron into my husband’s work before when he has his annual breakfast party at work and let me tell ya, they all LOVE me for making these waffles!

There is a secret to making these cinnamon toast waffles even better – I’ll share that secret below under the video.

If you’re wondering what to add to your waffle batter that will really upgrade the flavor, this cinnamon toast waffle recipe is exactly what you’re gonna love.

Note: my recipe uses Bisquick but now I use this waffle mix and the waffles turn out even better.

Feel free to use any baking mix, pancake mix or waffle mix that you prefer.

  • 2 Cups Bisquick
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 1/3 Cup Milk
  • 1/3 Cup Vegetable Oil

Simply mix together the Bisquick, egg, milk and vegetable oil to make your waffle batter then pour batter onto preheated waffle iron.

I use this waffle iron – it makes the BEST waffles every single time.
