Dessert for breakfast? That's exactly what you'll get with these Oreo waffles. Made with America's favorite cookie, a homemade waffle batter, and then topped with hot fudge and whipped cream, you're truly in for a treat!
This Oreo waffle recipe is one of our favorites. We have a lot of Oreo recipes on here, thanks to my cookie-loving son, haha. Of course, the more cookies we keep in the house, the more ways I try to prepare them too.
Adapted from my Dairy Free Waffles, these Oreo chocolate waffles are rich and sweet but not overwhelmingly so. They're perfect for serving up with maple syrup, chocolate syrup, or even ice cream!
Why This Recipe Works
- It's quick and simple. This recipe comes together quickly and easily with just a few kitchen tools and steps. Perfect for an easier morning routine! Within minutes you can have a waffle cooking and almost ready to eat.
- You can prep the batter in advance! Make the batter the night before and enjoy an even faster breakfast on the table.
- Not to mention, your inner child will thank you. For all those times when your parents said you couldn't have cookies or candy for breakfast, this recipe is a reminder that, as an adult, you totally can.
All-purpose flour- Use flour for the gluten structure in this recipe.
Baking powder- This will help the waffle puff up nicely as they cook.
Granulated sugar- Use some granulated sugar to get a better consistency and taste.
Salt- A natural flavor enhancer.
Cinnamon- This is optional, but it helps to add a nice depth of warmth to the waffles.
Oreo cookies- You can use name-brand or off-brand, but chocolate creme cookies are the main star of this recipe.
Large eggs- Use eggs as a binding agent to hold the waffles together so that they aren't crumbly.
Vanilla extract- A flavor enhancer.
Milk- You'll need some milk to bring the batter together. Dairy-free milk works great!
Vegetable oil- Use vegetable oil to give your waffles some needed fats so that they aren't dry in texture.
Black dutch cocoa powder-This is optional and not necessary unless you want your waffles darker in color and richer in chocolate taste (perfect for a dessert).

Check out how to make Oreo waffles with these simple step-by-step instructions:
Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and Oreo cookie crumbs in a large bowl.
Make a well in the center of the ingredients and add the eggs, vanilla, milk, and oil. Whisk until well combined and no lumps remain.
Scoop your batter into a preheated waffle maker in the amount requested by the manufacturer (usually ¼ cup-¾ cup of batter).
Close the lid and cook until ready light signals are finished, or it has reached the desired color.
Serve and enjoy!
Milk. If you have non-dairy milk on hand, you can do that or even use water instead. The flavor will be a little different but should still turn out fluffy and golden. You can even use flavored liquid coffee creamers for a fun and flavorful twist.
🍴 Recipe Tips
Make sure to follow your waffle maker's manual on how to make your waffles come out perfectly golden and crisp.
These chocolate Oreo waffles taste best when freshly made but can be stored and saved for later.
Brushing melted butter or oil onto the waffle maker instead of spraying with cooking spray will help to evenly get the nonstick coating over all of the pan's lumps so that the waffle crisps up nicely without sticking.
Reheat your oreo cookies and cream waffles by placing them on a cooking sheet at 350 degrees F for a few minutes on each side.
You can keep your leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
You can freeze your waffles for 1-3 hours until solid on a baking sheet and then stack them in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
You can make the batter up to 2 days in advance and keep it in an airtight container in the fridge. I like to use a gallon sized baggie and just snip the corner to pipe the batter out as needed.
