What is a Croffle?

Have you tried the 1-ingredient croffle? If not, it’s time to get these fluffy, sweet waffles made with croissant dough on your breakfast table right away! They take less than 5 minutes to prep and then cook in a waffle iron in just about 15 minutes. There’s no mess or hassle, and your kids will love customizing their serving with tasty toppings. We love berries, maple syrup and a dusting of powdered sugar! Serve these with bacon in the oven or air fryer sausage patties for a complete meal.

These are such a fun twist on the traditional waffle! Whether it’s a lazy weekend breakfast, a busy weekday morning, or a holiday brunch, croffles are a great way to satisfy your waffle cravings without the fuss. Here’s what you need to make them!

What’s Needed to Make Croffles?

This croffles recipe is truly made with just 1 ingredient and a waffle maker, plus you’ll want to add some toppings for a little extra for flavor.

You’ll need 1 package of croissant dough that makes 8 rolls. Alternatively, you can also use refrigerated crescent roll dough. 

How to Make Croffles in a Waffle Maker

Croffles are pretty much the easiest breakfast whip up. No measuring out ingredients, no mixing, no mess! These are effortless, simply shape the dough, and pop it in the waffle iron!

  1. Prep Dough: Open your croissant dough and separate each croissant section. Roll each croissant into the croissant shape.
  2. Cook: Heat a waffle iron and place a croissant into the waffle iron and cook for about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Serve: Top them with your favorite waffle toppings and enjoy!

Cooking Tips

  • Depending on the size of your waffle maker and the size of the croissants, you may want to place 4 in the waffle iron.
  • Another option is to add berries, banana slices, or even something savory, like eggs and cheese on the dough before rolling it up. This way your croffles will be stuffed with the filling. Just be sure not to add too much filling!
