Kodiak Cakes Waffle Recipe: Update Your Mix

This Kodiak Cakes waffle recipe does not follow the recipe on the box. Why? Because it is too basic to be truly delicious.

Kodiak Cakes Waffle Recipe: Update Your Mix

Kodiak Cakes is a rare pancake mix that is 100% whole grain and only has 3 grams of sugar for three waffles.

I like whole grain pancake mix because it makes my life easier. Also, they sell this in big boxes at Costco so I have a ton of this stuff.

I made a Kodiak Cakes muffin recipe and Kodiak pancakes recipe that my family enjoyed and was super easy.

Time to upgrade the waffles! I went for the obvious by adding frozen (thawed) blueberries because everyone loves blueberries in their waffles. You can add any fruit that you like - frozen strawberries, mango, raspberries, banana....

I added an egg, yogurt and vanilla. I love yogurt in my waffles because it gives them a sour flavor (kinda like sourdough bread).

The original Kodiak Cakes waffle recipe calls only for water and a tablespoon of oil. I updated the box recipes quite a bit and I must say mine is much better (though a bit more work).

You can go without the oil because you add the yogurt to give it flavor.

I did spray the waffle maker with non-stick spray to ensure that the waffles could be removed when done cooking.

How did they turn out? They didn’t taste like cardboard! Kodiak cake mix is the perfect 100% whole grain mix to upgrade. When you add yogurt and blueberries they become fluffier and less like cardboard.

The yogurt and blueberry ensures these are sweet enough to not need syrup but you can add it if you want it.

Freeze these in a Ziploc bag and pop them in the toaster when you want to eat them. You will NEVER eat Eggo Waffles again if you put in the effort. These aren’t even the same animal.

Have you made anything with the Kodiak Cakes mix? What did you make?

How do you figure out the points for just the mix?

What would measurements be without blueberries?

This makes me want to ask if you think we could add thawed blueberries to my favorite of your waffle recipes which is the oatmeal one? I have never tried adding the fruit directly into the batter. I like this!!!

I leave my batter thicker than recipe , add banana, walnuts and vanilla.

Quick question..I'm looking at the muffin recipe that calls for bananas...I'm allergic to them. Can I substitute something else... applesauce? Thanks..can't wait to try the waffles..

This recipe is fantastic! Enjoying my waffles right now. Love the addition of greek yogurt for extra protein, and even though it uses Kodiak Cakes, there is no protein-y flavor. I used cashew milk instead of water, but still needed to add a little water.

A "Rare" pancake mix? What does that mean?

I followed the recipe to the letter and ended up with waffle dough instead of batter. An extra 1.5 cups of water resolved this. They came out great - not cardboard-flavored like the Kodiak directions tend to make!


OMG! THESE ARE A MUST MAKE! I did use my Chobani oat milk in place of water and added fresh blueberries that I tossed lightly in lakanto powdered sugar to keep them whole. BTW I doubled the recipe that's using the whole new box mix. The last 3 waffles were getting really thick so I added a little more milk and some french toast flavored Skinny Syrup. EXCELLENT!
