Cinnamon Zucchini Waffles

I love Waffles. They’re the perfect breakfast, dessert, snack – whatever. You’re going to love these Cinnamon Zucchini Waffles. They’re super filling. I bagged the leftovers, froze them and now I can pop them in the toaster (or re heat in the waffle maker) for a quick and easy breakfast for when the baby comes.

Whenever we cook waffles my six-year-old sings a little jingle (waffles, waffles, waffles, waffles). He got it from that super annoying Teen Titans show but I have to admit, the song is catchy and I find myself singing along.

Today I wanted to update this homemade waffle recipe that I originally found on Gimme Some Oven and adjust it a bit to what our family needs. I’ve been making her recipe for years, it’s what I made and froze when I was pregnant with my son and now that I’m expecting a little girl, I guess I’m feeling sentimental because here I am typing away while my kitchen smells like cinnamon and vanilla.

I love that I froze this recipe for when both my babies were due to come without knowing it. Looking at on old recipes is fun.

TBK’s Pro Tip: In this recipe, I use almond milk but I’ve used skim, whole, cashew, and coconut and the waffles always turn out beautifully.

TBK’s Pro Tip: Cook the waffles a little longer than usual, the zucchini adds additional liquid that requires the batter a bit longer to cook.

These cinnamon zucchini waffles are super filling. I’m one that can pound back a meal no problem, and when I made this update – I could barely eat one full one. When you add additions like strawberries, raspberries, and other fruit – you’re adding more fiber and that will help fill you up even further.

I like this served with strawberries and whipped cream.

So tell me, are you a maple syrup fan or a fruit and whipped fan?

  19. i love the zucchini addition – never thought of that

  20. I noticed that there wasn’t any oil or butter in this recipe. You might want to fix that. I looked to the comments to see if anyone else raised that concern. All comments I saw were people saying can’t wait to try. They are going to be pretty disappointed if they don’t know better than to add batter to a waffle iron without it.
