I created this recipe when trying to get my husband to stop eating fast food for breakfast. Crispy on the outside and full of maple walnut flavor on the inside. I make 6 at a time and freeze them -- just pop in the toaster or microwave to reheat. Serve with maple syrup and a sprinkling of walnuts.

These have great flavor i did have to add another cup of milk i used almond milk. Mine were crumbly. I didnt let them get crispy in the waffle iron mabye that would have made a difference. The next time i make these I will put an egg in it very good though Read More

MMmmm- the smell these made while cooking! Yummy and light texture but very filling. I made the following modifications: I needed almost 1 c of milk total! I used pecans instead of walnuts and I added a pinch of salt wheat bran and oat bran. They had a great flavor! Will definitely make again. Read More

I give this four stars only because you do need to add a bit of milk. Atleast 1/2c possibly more. After that it has a wonderful flavor. Read More

I gave it two stars only because the flavor was decent. However the batter is so thick that it makes the waffles very heavy. I would add an egg add at least 1 cup of milk extra (or even more) and use only 2 cups of the dry pancake mix. I wouldn't make this again. Read More

I used less pancake mix and more WW flour. The flavor of this was mild. I was hoping for more maple walnut goodiness. But the kids did not care they ate them all up! Read More
