Perfect Whole Wheat Freezer Waffles


I made some stinking delicious waffles yesterday. Brown Sugar, buttermilk, whole wheat pastry flour – you seriously didn’t even need butter or syrup. Matty and I gobbled up our share and I proceeded to make the rest of the batter and throw it in the freezer.

Pulled one out this morning for someone requesting waffles – flat as a CD. I was so disappointed. I love making waffles, but no matter how delicious they were, they get wiped from the recipe pile if those suckers don’t freeze well.

I cheated on my go-to, already determined to be super delicious and freeze absolutely perfectly waffles. I have learned my lesson.

So now I have 19 waffle disks in my freezer. Awesome. Let me save you from that – here is the awesome, never buy frozen waffles at the store again – recipe. I make a batch of these once a week usually. And I will never cheat on them again.

Perfect Whole Wheat Freezer Waffles

Adapted slightly From The Truck Food Cookbook by John T. Edge. Page 47, Waffles from The Little Blue Waffle Wagon.


  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour or white whole wheat flour
  • 3 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 Tablespoons butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 2 cups buttermilk


  1. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in large bowl, whisk to combine.
  2. Whisk together eggs, buttermilk and vanilla in another bowl. Pour that into dry ingredients and gently combine. Let it rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Pour 1/4-1/3 of a cup of batter onto your heated waffle iron. Once done and cooled, put layers of wax paper or parchment in between the waffles, stash them in a freezer gallon bag and you have waffles any time you want.
  4. Warm up in the toaster on a low setting. Do a waffle happy dance, you never have to buy a box of them again.
