We all have those mornings when we are in a rush. There are times when we just don’t have the time to fix a big breakfast.
Those are the days when many folks turn to freezer waffles – Unless you are dealing with food allergies.
All mainstream store brand and name brand freezer waffles contain products like eggs and/or milk so they are out for us. There are some specialty waffles like Van’s that are very good and allergy safe. BUT….They are so expensive at nearly $5 for 1 box!
One of the things I like to do is make up a big batch of freezer waffles using our favorite allergy friendly recipe. We enjoy them for breakfast & then I put the rest into freezer bags to enjoy later. My kiddos love this, and it’s so easy to grab one & go when you’re in a hurry.
What You Need for Allergy Friendly Freezer Waffles
- Waffle Iron – This is very important to have a good one here. One of the single kind that you flip over will work fine, but it will take a while since you can only make one at a time. This Cuisinart 4-Slice Belgian Waffle Maker is very similar to mine & works great.
- Waffle Recipe – I use our favorite Dairy Free Egg Free Pancake Recipe(doubled), but you can use any Pancake Recipe you wish. There is a good Gluten Free Pancake Recipe here if you can’t have Gluten.
- Freezer Baggies – Make sure you get the kind that has FREEZER on the label or else they will get freezer burn.
How to Make your Allergy Friendly Freezer Waffles
- Mix up your batter
- Cook Waffles in Waffle maker as directed
- Once they’re done let them cool then put them spread out on a cookie sheet. Place the sheet in the freezer for a few minutes. They don’t have to be frozen solid at this point.
- After about 15-20 minutes take them off the cookie sheet and put them in the freezer bag.
- Store in the freezer until use.
How to thaw/cook your Allergy Friendly Freezer Waffles
- Remove desired amount from baggie.
- Cook in microwave for 1 minute or in toaster oven.
