Homemade croffles, anyone? You heard that right, this sweet snack is a mix of two of my favorite breakfast items: croissants and waffles.

For this easy croffle recipe, I used store bought flaky croissants, an egg, milk and vanilla. These 4 ingredients make a quick breakfast for busy mornings or a sweet treat when the mood strikes. 

Making these is one of my favorite ways to get rid of any remaining mini croissants from the week. They’re easy, delicious and everyone loves them.

If I’m feeling fancy and have extra time, I make these into sweet or savory croffle sandwiches. They’re almost like a warm panini waffle croissant. Yum.

👩‍🍳 How to Make Croissant Waffles

  1. Preheat your waffle maker according to the instructions.
  2. Slice the croissants in half horizontally, creating a top and bottom piece for each.
  3. In a shallow bowl or dish, whisk together the egg, milk, vanilla extract, and stir until well combined.
  4. Dip each croissant half into the egg mixture, ensuring they are well-coated on both sides.
  5. Grease the pre-heated waffle iron with butter or non-stick cooking spray.
  6. Place the dipped croissant halves in the waffle iron, close the lid, and cook according to the waffle iron instructions or until the croissants are golden brown and crispy.
  7. Carefully remove the croissant waffles from the iron and serve.

🪄 Tips and Tricks

  • I used already-baked croissants to make this an effortless breakfast or snack. Feel free to use pre-made croissant dough and bake at home for an even more fresh croissant.
  • You can also bake crescent roll dough. These have super flaky layers and would be just as good as leftover croissants. Bake the crescent dough sheets as normal by rolling them up, let them cool, cut in half and continue the recipe, as directed.
  • For babies between 6 to 12 months, feel free to omit vanilla extract.
  • With BLW, make these as directed and cut into tiny bite-size pieces that are age-appropriate (larger for younger).


🗒 Substitutions

  • Use plant-based milk in place of dairy milk.


🗒 Variations:

A croffle sandwich: add these between the two croissant halves prior to waffle iron.

  • For sweet croffles: melted chocolate, maple syrup, chocolate chips, Nutella and banana, peanut butter and jelly, pure maple syrup, chocolate sauce, cinnamon sugar. Basically, any sweet ingredients are a winner.
  • Savory croffle: slices of ham and cheese, cream cheese, bacon and avocado, turkey and pesto, etc.

👝 How to Store Leftovers

Store leftover croissants in an airtight container in the fridge for up the three days. I suggest reheating these in a toaster oven so they become crispy and warm croffles again.

🤔 Common Questions

Are these gluten-free?

These would be gluten-free if you are using gluten-free croissants. Your local bakery might sell them if you have trouble finding them at the grocery store.

Can I add other goodies to this?

Yes, yes, yes! I love to make these into little sandwiches. Sometimes I go sweet and do Nutella, peanut butter and/or banana. Sometimes I go savory and do ham and cheese! Either way, prepare these the same way, but add sandwich ingredients prior to adding to the waffle iron. Then, place in the waffle iron to heart everything up. Literally, amazing.

Can these be made dairy-free?

Yes! Use dairy-free milk such as almond milk, oat milk or soy milk.
