Why You'll Love This Recipe

My friends at Organic Valley sent me some of their seasonal Organic Eggnog and it is delicious! So, I knew I wanted to make Holiday Eggnog Waffles. This recipe can be made ahead of time, I made them the night before, stuck the batter in the fridge (covered it) and then just pulled it out when I turned on the waffle iron.

These Holiday Eggnog Waffles can be made for breakfast or a leisurely brunch. They go amazing with a cup of coffee. And, I served these with maple syrup and some fresh banana slices. You could even add a little sprinkle of cinnamon on top!

Why organic?

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.

Holiday Eggnog Waffles

Recipe by MimiDifficulty: Easy



Spice up your holiday brunch with these Eggnog Waffles! Using Organic Valley Eggnog makes for the best homemade holiday waffles!


  • 284 grams (2 1/4 cups) organic all purpose flour

  • 28 grams (2 tablespoons) organic cane sugar

  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon organic ground vanilla bean

  • 1/4 teaspoon organic cloves

  • 1/4 teaspoon organic nutmeg

  • 1 1/4 cups (293 grams) organic salted butter

  • 1 1/2 cups organic eggnog (like Organic Valley)

  • 4 organic large eggs


  • In a large bowl, add the flour, cane sugar, sea salt, baking powder, vanilla bean, cloves, and nutmeg and whisk together.
  • In a small saucepan, add the butter and put over medium heat. As soon as the butter is melted, remove from heat.
  • Add the eggnog, eggs, and melted butter to the flour mixture and whisk until a smooth batter forms. This is where you can just cover the bowl with plastic wrap and stick in the fridge for the next morning, or you can make the waffles now. Just let the batter come to room temperature before adding to waffle iron so it can spread out evenly.
  • Preheat your waffle iron and use 1/2 cup batter per waffle. Cook for 2 to 4 minutes, or follow the directions for your waffle iron.
  • Serve with bananas slices and maple syrup.


  • High Altitude – Follow the recipe as noted.
