The $6 Freezer Find I Reach for When Breakfast Just Isn’t Happening
Breakfast is a non-negotiable for me. I always carve out at least a few minutes every morning for a quick bite. While I do have a handful of breakfast options on rotation, on days where time is tight, I reach for my freezer fallback: Kodiak Power Waffles.
I’ve been a Kodiak loyalist ever since they rose to popularity after a 2014 Shark Tank debut. What started as a collection of pancake mixes evolved into a robust product line of syrups, oatmeal, granola bars, and, you guessed it, frozen waffles. It was love at first bite for me, so I always keep my freezer stocked with a box or two for a convenient breakfast option.
What’s So Great About Kodiak Power Waffles?
Kodiak Frozen Power Waffles come in several flavors, including buttermilk & vanilla (my personal favorite), cinnamon, blueberry, homestead original, dark chocolate, and chocolate chip. I often have the standard round, full-sized waffles in my freezer, but Kodiak also has a Thick & Fluffy waffle line, which have Belgian waffle vibes, and a kids’ line with mini pull-apart waffles.
Every variety I’ve enjoyed is subtly sweet, making them the perfect vessel for syrup or your topping of choice. I also like that Kodiak Power Waffles have more staying power than many of their traditional counterparts. Made with 100% whole grains and no preservatives, each serving packs a hearty 12 grams of protein to help fuel my morning.
What’s the Best Way to Use Kodiak Power Waffles?
If maple syrup isn’t your thing, then a quick spread of jam or nut butter is a delicious alternative. If you’re looking for a heartier option, swap out your traditional bread or English muffin with these waffles for a fun breakfast sandwich base. I’m a purist at heart, however, and my preferred way to eat them is slightly thawed, straight from the freezer.
