Gingerbread cookies are my favorite cookie of the holiday season. I only make them in December for the same reason as I only make pumpkin recipes in the fall. It makes it so much more special to serve it only during the holidays.

You know, they are Santa’s favorite cookie too! At least they are around here.

So why not take this awesome holiday cookie and turn them into an awesome holiday breakfast?! That is just what I did when I made these waffles. They turned out delicious and I even froze some for the week. They didn’t last a week…

Freezing Waffles

Since this recipe makes so many waffles, needed to  freeze the leftovers! It’s very easy to do and you can just pop them in the toaster and have a quick delicious breakfast.

To freeze the waffles: lay them out on a sheet of parchment paper, on a large cutting board (freezer friendly), and freeze the waffles for about 4 hours. Place the waffles in the freezer bags and seal tight. Pop them in the toasted in the morning!!

  1. Who doesn’t love ginger bread! Great idea and super pictures!

  2. Trish Butler says:

    Thank you so much for this recipe. I am 67 years old and just got my first waffle iron last weekend. This recipe will be a great start for my new love. MERRY CHRISTMAS and Seasons Greetings to all.

  3. These look absolutely amazing. Great idea!

  4. those waffles look perfect! i would put some in the freezer for sure for later!

  5. Sounds so yummy! Makes we want to run out and get a waffle maker!

  6. I love gingerbread, and these look really yummy!

  7. Would this recipe work to make pancakes as well?

    • It might be a little think for pancakes, Maria. You can use any of my buttermilk pancake recipes and sub out for the molasses and the spices (that’s the essentials of gingerbread). Let me know if you need any help and I can white the recipe for you!

      • Sure, Lyuba, I’d love for you to help me write a pancake version of this recipe. Thanks!

        • No problem! This is what I would do (I think, I will make it this week too):
          1 1/2 cups flour
          1/4 cup molasses
          2 tsp baking powder
          1/2 tsp baking soda
          1/4 tsp salt
          4 oz melted unsalted butter
          2 eggs, room temperature
          1 tsp vanilla extract
          1 1/4 cups buttermilk
          1/2 tsp dry ginger
          1/4 tsp allspice
          1/2 tsp cinnamon
          1/4 tsp nutmeg
          Whisk together the wet pancake ingredients until combined.
          Whisk in the dry ingredients and let the batter stand for about 10 minutes before cooking.

  8. uuuummm yes. these look so very good! Gingerbread is delicious and waffles are my favorite! Great recipe :)

  9. Ahhh I’m salivating; I desperately need a waffle maker! I like how you edge away from the traditional waffle base flavour. I did the same with some gingersnap cones, and I’m sure that with your waffle maker you can make them look even better than mine :D If you have time, take a look at the recipe:

  10. Looks and sounds amazing. Maybe Christmas morning for the family.

  11. These gingerbread waffles are absolutely amazing. They cook up to be a rich brown color and aren’t overly sweet. With the addition of maple syrup these are perfect. My kids loved them too!!! I stumbled upon this blog yesterday and have already made the waffles and the pudding cookies, both were a hit with my family. I have also printed out several other recipes to try. Looks like I’ll be a busy girl in the kitchen for the next few days. I love your site and your recipes you so good. Thanks for sharing!

  12. Wow, you have no idea how long I have been looking for this recipe. We used to have these for brunch when I was growing up. You have to try these with sliced bananas and whipped cream.
