Snickerdoodle Waffles

Breakfast · August 5, 2013

Snickerdoodle Waffles are delicious and perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner! { } Soft waffles with a hint of almond and full of cinnamon flavor!

Did you know it’s WAFFLE DAY today? You probably didn’t even know the day existed, and I didn’t either until I was looking on a holiday calendar awhile back. In celebration of this silly holiday I thought I’d share with you a new recipe we recently tried out that is perfect to celebrate today with.

They’re Snickerdoodle Waffles… yes, Cinnamon and Sugar covered waffles that are sure to make you smile.

I’m not lying when I say that we have waffles at our house at least once or twice a month. The whole family loves them, and it’s a quick and easy recipe making it that much better. I knew I had to try a new version when I saw these Churro Waffles on Chica Chocolatina. I made just a few changes and when they kids said they tasted like Snickerdoodles, I knew I needed to call them Snickerdoodle Waffles instead.


I warn that they can be pretty rich (kinda like cinnamon rolls), but they are oh-so heavenly and were very easy to make. ๐Ÿ™‚

How delicious does this look?!

These waffles were great! I had thought of making Homemade Buttermilk Syrup to go with them and then realized I was glad I didn’t because they were already very rich as they were.

I was glad the kids liked them but shortly realized that they would be crazy if they hadn’t liked them. They were practically eating dessert for breakfast when they had these – lol! ๐Ÿ™‚

I think National Waffle Day is actually August 24th…although there is no reason there shouldn’t be more than one. We love Waffles! I am not a Snickerdoodle fan, but my son ADORES them so I might just have to make these for him.

    Lil' Luna

    It’s actually today but the 24th is when the Waffle Iron was invented and some celebrate it then too. Let me know if you try this recipe… I hope your son will love them! ๐Ÿ˜€


My husband loves Snickerdoodles!! He will be so excited to have these for breakfast. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!!

    Lil' Luna

    Let me know how he likes them Crystal… but warning: they’re pretty much like eating dessert for breakfast. ๐Ÿ˜‰


I enjoy reading you blog and its recipes so very much. Thank you for sharing.

    Lil' Luna

I have a quick question (or two, lol)… How many waffles does this recipe make? What size waffle-maker did you use? Just curious so I know if I need to double the recipe to use in my Belgium waffle-maker. I’ll probably double it anyway, but wanted to know either way. Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lil' Luna

    I used my Belgian Waffle Maker, and I think it made 4 total. Hope that helps. ๐Ÿ™‚


      Yes, that definitely helps. Thank you! Looking forward to giving these yummy-looking waffles a try very soon!

        Lil' Luna

        Let me know how they turn out. ๐Ÿ™‚


I made these for a special back to school breakfast for my kids. They were a total success!

    Lil' Luna

    I LOVE hearing that, Stacy! SO glad the kids liked them. ๐Ÿ™‚

Barb Moul

Just made these, they were awesome! Didn’t put them in butter but did sprinkle with cinnamon & sugar; my husband gave them the thumbs up! Will definately make again for the grandkids!

    Lil' Luna

    Yay!! SO glad to hear you guys liked them. Thank you for stopping by to let me know how they went. XO

Thanks … these look and sound delicious!!

    You’re right – you don’t!! It’s so yummy. ๐Ÿ™‚


Lil’ Luna I just saw your recipe for snicker doodle waffels. They look amazing!!!! I’ll defiantly be trying them! I also wanted to share a yummy syrup with you that I think would be delicious on them! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m not sure where it originated from but when I was going up in the small town of Scipio (sounds like sip-ee-o) and any time we or other kids in our town had slumber parties our mom’s would always make this syrup for waffels, pancakes, Swedish pancakes, French toast or whatever else we could find to drench in this syrup. ๐Ÿ™‚ So to all our out of town friends it is called “Scipio Syrup.”
Here’s the recipe:
1 cube real butter
1 cup granulated sugar
Put in microwave safe bowl and cook on high power for 2 minutes stirring at 1 min. Mixture should get bubbly.
In blender add:
1 cup heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla
Then pour in butter, sugar mixture and blend on high for 30 to 45 sec. Or if your blender has a syrup button push that. It is defiantly a heavenly syrup! Hope you try it and enjoy. ๐Ÿ™‚

I just came across this recipe and I am going to make it tonight for dinner .

You’ve changed my waffle life. Seriously. I couldn’t get my kids to stop eating. “More waffle!” –> 2 year old. These are the BEST waffles ever. Ever. Write it down. Ever.

    Lil' Luna

    LOL! LOVE that they were a hit. You really can’t go wrong with cinnamon and sugar all over your waffles! ๐Ÿ˜‰


Still licking the cinnamon and sugar off my plate! These were delicious. I’ve been searching for a go to waffle recipe, and this is it! I substituted full fat coconut milk in place of cow milk and it was perfectly delicious!

    Lil' Luna

    I’m so glad you liked these. We don’t make them very often, but when we do we are also licking the cinnamon and sugar off. ๐Ÿ˜‰


My youngest son asked me to make waffles this morning, so we were perusing my Pinterest breakfast board and came across your recipe. I had all of the ingredients on hand (a win), so I whipped them up for the family. Oh em gee, they were so good! All of the kids were in agreement – and that doesn’t happen very often! Definitely a keeper! Thanks so much for the recipe!

    Lil' Luna

    LOL!! I’m so glad you came upon the recipe and that you had all the ingredients on hand! Thanks for sharing!


These waffles look and sound amazing! Perfect for weekend brunch!
