Mix it Up: Cookie Waffles

Put that waffle iron to good use! It’s not just for making a hearty weekend brunch anymore –  it will allow you to whip up easy and delicious cookie waffles that the whole family will enjoy.

A waffle iron is a cooking appliance (probably hiding in the back of your cupboard) that dates back to the 14th century. It has two hinged metal plates moulded to create an elaborate pattern as it cooks your waffles. Throughout history, designs have included a coat of arms, landscapes, religious symbols, and the traditional honeycomb pattern that is most widely recognized today. General Electric produced an electric prototype in 1911, and started popping up on counter tops in 1918.

The secret recipe:

  1. Warm up the waffle iron. Plug it in, turn it on.
  2. Prepare your cookie dough. If you love baking like we do, then you can prepare your cookie dough from scratch following your favourite recipe. But to save you time, we’ve prepared our sinfully delicious cookie dough recipes (gluten-free and nut-free options) made with plant-based ingredients, free of GMO’s, dairy, eggs, preservatives and refined sugars (available at these amazing retailers).
  3. Grill your dough. Add your dough to your waffle iron and cook until golden brown.
  4. Enjoy!

Tips + tricks:

  • Your cookie waffles are great the way they are, or you can serve them like a regular waffle. Plate and drizzle a sweet sauce over top like chocolate, caramel, or date, and serve with nuts and fruit!
