Crispy Walnut Maple Waffles

Crispy Walnut Maple Waffles


"I created this recipe when trying to get my husband to stop eating fast food for breakfast. Crispy on the outside and full of maple walnut flavor on the inside. I make 6 at a time and freeze them -- just pop in the toaster or microwave to reheat. Serve with maple syrup and a sprinkling of walnuts."

This is the best waffle we've ever eaten, except 2 Tablespoons of milk doesn't work. 2 CUPS of milk works great!

WOW! Excellent flavor - even better toasted the next day! Nice and CRISPY on the outside. My son LOVED these and he is a very pick breakfast eater. I added a little more cinnamon to suit his ta...

excellent flavor and crispy texture. I tried it using my new waffle maker and I will make them again.

MMmmm- the smell these made while cooking! Yummy and light texture but very filling. I made the following modifications: I needed almost 1 c of milk total! I used pecans instead of walnuts, ...

Add more milk to the recipe but these are FANTASTIC. We ate them with bananas and whip cream! Will definately make again!! Thanks!!

I give this four stars only because you do need to add a bit of milk. Atleast 1/2c possibly more. After that it has a wonderful flavor.

I gave it two stars only because the flavor was decent. However, the batter is so thick that it makes the waffles very heavy. I would add an egg, add at least 1 cup of milk extra (or even more) ...

I used less pancake mix and more WW flour. The flavor of this was mild. I was hoping for more maple walnut goodiness. But the kids did not care they ate them all up!

These have great flavor, i did have to add another cup of milk, i used almond milk. Mine were crumbly. I didnt let them get crispy in the waffle iron, mabye that would have made a difference. ...
