Maple Chip Waffles

I like to sleep, quite frankly it’s one of my favorite hobbies, but unfortunately I don’t get much of it during the week. So when the weekend hits, I am all about getting my sleep on…yep, sleeping in and making waffles!

My dad gave me this Waring Pro Waffle Iron last year and it sat unused for a couple of months. However, once I pulled it out of the box, I was in love and addicted to making waffles! I think part of the addiction stems from the fact that I thoroughly enjoy the flipping mechanism on this machine, plus the timer makes the waffles foolproof! What can I say…I have a habit of burning toast, so I am all about timers!

Making homemade waffles is simple and only requires a handful of ingredients. Once you find your go-to waffle recipe, you can experiment with a variety of ingredients. Anything from chocolate chips to bananas can be tossed into the batter to make plain waffles go from ordinary to extraordinary. Last Sunday, I whipped together these Maple Chip Waffles for a hungry crowd. I cooked them up until they were crisp and slathered them with butter and pure maple syrup. They were the perfect Sunday morning breakfast served alongside some crispy bacon and piping hot coffee. If you are staring at the photos in search of maple chips, you are not going nuts, they all just kinda sink to the bottom of the waffle and are not all that visible in the photos! They are there, I promise!

This Sunday, we are attempting homemade doughnuts, I will definitely report back on this adventure…that is unless I burn down my house because me+frying= a hot mess! Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Maple Chip Waffles


2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 cups milk (I used 2%)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon white sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup mini maple chips


1. Preheat waffle iron. Beat eggs in large bowl with hand beater until fluffy. Beat in flour, milk, vegetable oil, sugar, baking powder, salt and vanilla, just until smooth. Fold in mini maple chips.

2. Spray preheated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour mix onto hot waffle iron. Cook until golden brown. Serve hot.


- I use level 5 on my Waring Pro Waffle Iron, we like them crispy.

    They look great! Just a tip, if you coat the chips with powdered sugar a bit they will not fall to the bottom they’ll distribute better. Also I freeze waffles up in ziploc bags & they are perfect to warm in the toaster even frozen; so you could sleep in more or warm the whole bunch at once in the oven on a cookie sheet. hth

    Where do you get maple chips? I’m all for anything maple. And now I must make waffles in the morning.

    Well, solves that problem! I was seriously just sitting here thinking “I’m hungry. What do I want to make for breakfast?” Waffles it is. These look absolutely delicious. Thanks!


  6. Jeanne — February 21, 2010 at 11:19 am

    Maple is my favorite breakfast flavor! These look delicious! Now I’ve got to find a store that has maple chips, I’ve never seen them before.


  7. Tracey — February 21, 2010 at 2:15 pm

    I’ve never seen or heard of maple chips but I love the idea of putting them in waffles! Thanks for sharing where you purchased them. The waffles look amazing!


  8. Denise @ Creative Kitchen — February 21, 2010 at 2:43 pm

    Love using those waffle irons at hotels!! They are the best. Always wanted one…but seems redundant since I have a regular belgian waffle iron. You scored!!


  9. Lucy — February 21, 2010 at 3:33 pm

    Mmm a waffle iron sounds like a fabulous gadget! These waffles look totally delicious too, what a breakfast treat :)


  10. Alex — February 21, 2010 at 6:31 pm

    That looks so good. I’d love a square waffle iron but mine is pretty cute…it’s a whole bunch of hearts in a circle. I’ll have to try your recipe!!


  11. Jennifer — February 21, 2010 at 7:35 pm

    Now thesse are my kind of waffles!!! Im ordering the maple chips RIGHT NOW!!


  12. Danae (The Busty Baker) — February 22, 2010 at 12:55 am

    Just wanted to say, I actually did make these today! I was so inspired, I even ended up buying a whole new waffle iron for it! (I hated my old waffle iron, so it would have happened eventually. Your post just pushed me along!) I made them without the maple chips because I didn’t have them, but I added maple extract to make up for it. Very tasty!! Now that I have a brand new iron and a delicious recipe, I’ll be making waffles ALL the time now!

    Soon it will be sugaring time in Vermont. Our neighbors are tapping our trees while we are in Sicily. Yummy post. Thanks

    We also make big batches of waffles and freeze in ziplock bags to reheat in the toaster later in the week. Love them! Great photos, love the one of the syrup pouring.

    Looks great! My three boys gave me the same waffle iron for Christmas. I love it! The flavor possibilities are endless. Have fun with yours!


  16. CookiePie — February 22, 2010 at 4:10 pm

    Ooooh – those look fabulous. I haven’t heard of maple chips before – they sound amazing!


  17. Megan — February 25, 2010 at 5:04 pm

    I’ve never heard of maple chips but these sound and look so delicious that I’ve going to have to keep an eye out for them the next time I go grocery shopping!


  18. pamela — February 26, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    Is there anything better than a lazy breakfast on the weekend? Yes…a lazy breakfast with MAPLE CHIPS!! I’m jealous and these babies look awesome!


  19. ladyironchef — February 28, 2010 at 5:44 am

    Hello there, dropped by from tastespotting, great photos there! i’m craving for waffles now :)


  20. perry — February 28, 2010 at 11:52 am

    my God… the possibilities this open up…

    … I’m thinking toffee bits, with treacle and cream. Especially if they sink and caramelize the bottom.


  21. Charlie — February 28, 2010 at 2:53 pm

    I looked on preparedpantry and couldn’t find the maple chips…help? lol

    Waffles look great by the way


    • Jamie — February 28, 2010 at 3:58 pm

      Yikes, I just went to their site and it looks like they aren’t carrying them anymore. Maybe they were seasonal?

  22. Valerina — March 1, 2010 at 9:53 am

    Other waffles should follow these waffles as an example of how thick and luscious they should be. As much as I love maple, I never thought of using maple chips in the waffle batter, that’s brilliant. :)


  23. Joanne — March 3, 2010 at 7:04 pm

    These are ingenious! There is absolutely no such thing as too much maple. I just need to find the maple chips and I will be all set…


  24. Carol — March 20, 2010 at 11:43 am

    You might want to try maple syrup granules instead of maple chips. You can get them from I have used them in making silver dollar pancakes to make my own version of McGriddle sandwiches. They are made from 100% organic dehydrated maple syrup so they are the real deal!


  25. Sarah — April 5, 2011 at 10:31 am

    Maple is the flavor of the gods!! it must be! nothing else on earth is so delicious in it’s pure unadulterated form!!! also has maple chips!! thank you for including your source! it’s always great to know if one supplier is out there’s more!!


  26. Anna — February 27, 2012 at 3:04 pm

    How many servings is this recipe for? I’d like to try this out this weekend. Thanks!
