Freezer-Friendly Spinach Waffles for Baby + Toddler

Warm and wholesome waffles made with nutrient packed spinach!

#hiddenveggies for the win! 🌱🏆

These fluffy waffles can be devoured the minute you make them or frozen and reheated for those hectic mornings you want a fast and healthy breakfast for your baby, toddler or kid! I would have to strongly recommend making a double batch so you can eat some right away while having enough leftover to freeze!

My girls are hit or miss with spinach. At some meals they will eat it raw by the handful (table manners are not prevalent in my house apparently😂), while other times they won’t touch spinach with a ten-foot pole.

But whenever I blend spinach up and make a baked good or smoothie with it, they don’t even bat-an-eye at it, they just dive right in.

These green waffles are so good that an entire batched was gobbled up by my family within minutes (hence, the recommendation for making a double batch above 😉).

How to Make Spinach Waffles

  • Prep: heat waffle maker to medium heat
  • Mix: whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt
  • Blend: in a blender, blend the eggs, milk, oil, applesauce, vanilla and spinach (this is to ensure you don’t have any chunks of spinach in your waffles)

  • Cook: pour 1/4 cup of batter into each waffle mold and cook until golden brown.

Warm and wholesome waffles made with nutrient packed spinach!



  • Preheat waffle iron to medium heat.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  • In a blender, add in the eggs, milk, oil, applesauce, vanilla extract and spinach. Blend for 1 minute on medium speed or until the spinach is completely blended.
  • Add the spinach mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just combined.
  • Pour waffle mixture onto waffle iron in 1/4 cup increments and bake according to waffle makers instructions.
  • Serve or store in an air-tight container in the fridge or freezer.


Freezer-Friendly: take any leftovers and place in a freezer zip-lock baggie and freeze. To reheat, place in toaster and toast until warm. Will last 2-3 months in the freezer. 
Notes on Flour: you can use all-purpose, white whole wheat or whole wheat flour in any combination that you prefer, I will usually use a combo of 1 cup all-purpose and 1 cup whole wheat or 2 cups white wheat flour. You can also make these gluten-free using a gluten-free flour mix (this is our favorite). If using whole wheat flour, you may need to add in extra milk to thin it out as whole wheat flour is extra absorbent.
Notes on Milk: if your dough is too thick, add in up to 1 more cup of milk. Depending on which flour you use, you may need more milk.
