Whether as a quick breakfast to start your day or as a light snack when you need a little mid-afternoon pick-me-up, mini waffles are incredibly satisfying. These tasty bite-sized treats are light, fluffy, with a rich golden brown color such as regular waffles, and dusted in mouthwatering cinnamon sugar, which makes them taste a little like churros. Mini waffles are super easy to make – all you need to do is mix up the batter, heat your waffle griddle and cook! Make them small or make them big. Whichever you choose, you can be guaranteed mini waffles will be a massive hit in your household.

Expert Tips for Making the Best Mini Waffles

While cinnamon sugar always tastes amazing, you can dip your mini waffles in other toppings. Salted caramel, chocolate, pumpkin spice, and sugar – there are so many variations to try, you'll never get bored of making mini waffles.

If you want to simplify your waffle making, use pancake mix instead of whipping up the batter from scratch.

Mini waffles only need a few minutes to cook. Once your griddle is nice and hot, 3 to 4 minutes should do the trick.

If you don't have a waffle maker, you can use a griddle pan to make your waffles. You'll need to flip them halfway through cooking.
