Homemade Waffle Iron Spice Cookies

These homemade waffle iron spice cookies are quick and easy to make and full of healthy ingredients for you and your kids.

My son and I really enjoy making cookies together. In fact, we made two batches of cookies yesterday using the same bowl. First we made our no bake peanut butter cookies, and then we made our waffle iron cookies. Yum! I’m glad we had them because we took both batches with us yesterday on our trip to the Royal Gorge Railway. For my birthday weekend, my husband booked us a trip to ride on a train for the day.


Obviously it was more for our two boys, but isn’t everything when you’re a parent. These cookies made for the perfect treat on the road, and for the rest of our fun filled day. They were packed with tons of great ingredients, were filling, and just tasted like the adventure we went on. It looks like I’m going to have to make some more if we’re going to have any to munch on this week.

With two small kids at home and a business to run, I’m all about quick and easy recipes with little to no mess, especially if they are great on the go. I wouldn’t normally encourage bringing cookies for snacks for your kids, but I don’t make normal cookies either. All of our creations here at the house are delicious and nutritious.

I don’t have to worry about my kids eating too many, or filling up on empty calories. In fact, I can feel good about these knowing that they are getting good ingredients, and if anything, a nice dose of protein to keep them going strong until we can get a good meal again. Of course, we took apples, carrots, and peppers too, but they don’t hold up quite as well all day long in the car.

Amazing Health Benefits of Spices

I think you’d be surprised at the amazing health benefits of using organic spices in your foods, and these cookies use a wide spectrum of them, contributing to all of the great flavors and nutrition. Check out the powerhouses of nutrition you can find in each of these great spices:

Cinnamon lowers blood sugar and has a powerful anti-diabetic effect. It also has potent antioxidant activity, helping to fight inflammation and lower cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood.

Ginger helps to treat nausea and has anti-inflammatory properties. It also helps with pain management.

Nutmeg helps to prevent cavities by reducing plaque formation by 50 percent and eradicating cavity-producing microbes in your mouth. It is also rich in protective anti-inflammatory compounds that can lower your risk of cancer by stifling tumor growth.

Cloves are high in antioxidants, and are known for supporting liver health and helping to stabilize blood sugar levels. The eugenol found in cloves has also been shown to have anti-cancer properties.

Allspice, a traditional medicine, is used to relieve digestive complaints, notably intestinal gas, abdominal pain, and indigestion. It also possess antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, cancer-fighting, sedative, antiseptic, antiviral and anti-fungal properties.

Vanilla has a number of important benefits, including its ability to treat acne, improve hair growth, speed healing, reduce inflammation, prevent chronic diseases, protect the heart, and much more.

With this much nutrition in every delicious bite, these are almost irresistible to make every day of the week.

Suffice to say, these were the prized snack on our trip across Colorado yesterday. After being in the sun, and drinking lots of water, eating lots of carrots and apples, and riding in the car, these were a really special treat for all of us. And the best part is, it will only take me another 5-10 minutes or so to whip up another batch of hot and crispy waffle iron cookies for my family.
