The 10 Best Waffle Mixes

This wiki has been updated 18 times since it was first published in June of 2018. Waffles pair well with so many toppings, both savory and sweet, from fruit and powdered sugar to eggs and even fried chicken. However, making them from scratch can be time-consuming, especially on busy mornings when the whole family is trying to get out the door. These mixes, however, typically only require two or three ingredients to create a warm treat in a relatively short amount of time. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

April 21, 2020:

When it comes to waffles, some diners prefer the simple, classic, golden and fluffy variety, and some are looking for something more evolved - and perhaps something a bit healthier. However you like to enjoy this comforting and crispy breakfast item, we believe you should find something on this list.

We wanted to ensure our health conscious consumers could partake in this food, so we added the Birch Benders Keto, which is, as its name promises, Keto-friendly, being high in protein and having no added sugar. Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes is a good pick for those looking for some pre-workout energy, as it's also loaded with protein, and is easy to use to make a number of healthy baked goods. Though Diabetic Kitchen was suitable for those watching their sugar intake, it had to go because it had some consistency issues and the end result would often break apart.

Flavor-hunters might like the decadent Stonewall Kitchen Double Chocolate, which tastes a bit like having brownies for breakfast. There is also Bunnery Natural Foods O.S.M., which is available in multiple delectable varieties. We removed Garvey's Organic because it's flavor was too bland. Hungry Jack Complete was also lacking in the taste department, so it too lost its place.

As long as your waffle maker is capable, Krusteaz Light & Crispy Belgian is ideal for making treats with deep pockets that can really soak up some syrup, while those seeking something nostalgic might like Golden Malted Original, which is reportedly what Disneyland uses to make Mickey Mouse waffles, or the classic Quaker Oats Aunt Jemima Original.

Special Honors

Williams Sonoma Bellegem Waffle Mix Williams Sonoma Bellegem Waffle Mix has a recipe designed to create waffles that are crispy and golden on the outside and extremely fluffy and delicate on the inside. It gets its flavor from natural almond oil, vanilla, and some spice, so the waffles will taste good on their own, with powdered sugar, or loaded with the fruit or syrup of your choice. This one-pound, four-ounce canister produces roughly 14 servings.

Sur La Table Belgian-Style Liege Waffles With Pearl Sugar Made with unbleached enriched flours, organic cane sugar, sea salt, and natural vanilla flavor, Sur La Table Beglian-Style Liege Waffles are pure and simple. The mix comes with coarse pearl sugar that tastes delicious on waffles, as well as yeast to help the food rise and add a special tang that helps them taste good with most sweet toppings.
