I have a confession. I never use my waffle iron. I’ve had it for 2 years and I think I’ve used it twice. When you have 3 teenage kids, all hungrily waiting at the table for food. Making one waffle at a time just isn’t productive. And I like to eat with the family. But after making at least 2 waffles per child, then finally making one for myself, they’re done.

I know I could make all the waffles and then call them to the table but there’s something about a waffle, hot off the iron. It’s just better than one that’s sat around warming for 10-15 minutes.

So waffles as a breakfast food don’t happen at my house. Any time I think waffles, I just switch it up to pancakes. I’ve got a huge electric griddle, I can make 6 pancakes at a time.

That doesn’t mean I don’t want to use my waffle iron. Especially as the summer months get into full swing. I don’t want to heat up the kitchen using the oven. We still need our sweets.

Using the waffle iron to make cookies is the perfect solution. And since these are technically waffles, you could serve them for breakfast!

  1. Woah, this is mind-blowing. I never thought of making cookies in a waffle iron, but it sounds awesome. Just think of those with a sweet glaze in all those crannies…mmm.. 🙂

  2. I am obsessed with waffles! And brownies (who isn’t!) So these are right up my alley! I also love that I don’t need to turn my oven on -Florida is getting hot! Pinned 🙂

  3. I’ve never used my waffle iron for anything except waffles. Like you, I don’t make waffles often, but my reason is I hate getting the waffle iron out of the cabinet! These cookies look worth it! Have a great week Joan!

  4. Believe me we have made these for years and years. Although my recipe uses cocoa…But then we always add a chocolate frosting to them and they were the hit of the snacking world some 30 years ago or so. But my son grew up but still once in a while he will say mom would you and I do.

  5. Girl these waffles are making me scream with delight!!! Happy dance taking place!

  6. Hi Joan! I hear you on the waffle baker. . we do mix it up from time to time and make waffles but you’re right, the pancakes are much easier and faster and you can make more at the same time. . AND my husband always makes the pancakes in our house so I always vote for pancakes with my kids to get out of making waffles! 😛 love this idea!!! Now, I will have to break out the waffle baker for this one!

  7. It is annoying having to make one waffle at a time!

    Omigoshhhh I love how these are brownies….but cookies….but waffles??! AAAAMAZINGNESS!

  8. Mmmmm….these look amazing Joan. I’m sure my chocoholic hubby would make short order of these! Have a great weekend. 🙂

  9. I just got my first electric griddle for Mothers Day so pancakes have been winning in our house lately as well, but there is something so much tastier to me about a waffle. I love brownies and cookies, I can’t wait to try these Joan 🙂

  10. I completely agree about making one waffle at a time…I don’t like making breakfast to begin with!
    This is a super cool idea to get a waffle fix! Thank you for sharing.

  11. What a fabulous idea, Joan! I can’t wait to try these – my son especially will love them, I know!
    Thanks for linking up on Cook it! Craft it! Share it! I pinned this to the party board and I can’t wait to see what you link up this week!

  12. Great idea. My boys would love me forever if I served these for breakfast!

  13. Debora Batz says:

    Made last night- love them. Eat them fresh or later pop into a toaster (which I prefer) to snack.

  14. What do you mean by “Store in an airtight container” – like they’re going to last long enough to store anywhere never mind an airtight container! 😀 x

  15. Have you tried butter or coconut oil in place of shortening?
