Course: Breakfast, Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: waffle, waffles
Servings: 12 waffles (depending on size of iron)



  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 splash vanilla
  • 3-4 cups milk depending on your flour
  • 1/2 cup avocado oil
  • 3 to 3-1/2 cups flour depending on type used
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Preheat waffle maker (iron)
  • Whisk the eggs in a large bowl. Add the milk, oil, and vanilla and whisk well to combine.
  • Combine 3 cups flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Slowly add to the egg mixture. If your batter is too runny, add more flour as needed.
  • Carefully spoon batter into the preheated waffle maker. Shut the lid and cook for 3-5 minutes, depending on desired finished consistency (soft or crunchy - I like to cook mine for 3 minutes so they are a little soft and pale. That way, I can toast them up later and they won't be too dry.).
  • Lay the cooked waffles in a single layer on a baking rack. Allow them to cool completely. Once cool, carefully lay them in a bread bag to freeze if you wish to store them for later.
