Cereal or waffles is a great way to start the day. But what if you could have both at the same time? I’m talking about combining cereal and waffles together for a whole new flavor. Have you ever thought about adding Fruit Loops cereal to waffle batter? Don’t knock it till you try it! Not only do they taste good but these Fruit Loops waffles also make breakfast fun for kids and adults. Plus, they’re colorful! Sprinkle a few Fruit Loops on tops for extra sweetness. Enjoy!
For this recipe you will need a waffle iron. I like to use the Cuisinart round classic waffle iron. It’s small, doesn’t take up much room and is affordable. You can use any type of waffle iron shape or size you would like. If you don’t have one, you can find a variety of waffles irons here.

Can you freeze waffles?
Yes, you can! If you want to freeze waffles, double the batch to make extra. After you make them let the waffles completely cool. Add them to a freezer Ziploc bag by stacking them and placing a piece of wax or parchment paper in between each one to keep them from sticking to each other.
Can you reheat waffles?
Yes, you can! When you’re ready to eat, take out of the freezer and toast in the toaster to your liking. Top with syrup and enjoy!
