I love making these Homemade Malted Milk Waffles because whenever I make them, I freeze half of them so that we can have waffles easily anytime. Homemade Malted Milk Waffles are amazing to freeze as they stay so fresh in the freezer. All you have to do is pull one out and pop in the toaster or air fryer!

How to Make Homemade Malted Milk Waffles
In a large bowl, add the flour, cane sugar, malt powder, sea salt, and baking powder and whisk together.
Add in the melted butter, milk, heavy whipping cream, eggs, and vanilla extract and whisk until a smooth batter forms.
Allow waffle iron to get warm, I cooked these on setting 4 on my waffle iron that I linked above. But, medium on any iron will do! Measure 1/2 cup of batter into the waffle iron (if you have a smaller iron, you’ll have to do less or if you want to fill the entire iron do 1 cup). Cook until golden brown, about 2 to 4 minutes, depending on your waffle iron.
Tips for Homemade Malted Milk Waffles
• This is pretty much dump all ingredients into a bowl and mix kind of recipe! Just be sure that you mix together your dry ingredients, even if the others get out of order, it’s no big deal here!
• I use my Cuisinart Belgian Waffle Iron and I use a 1/2 cup to measure batter in. This does not fill the waffle iron completely, as I made these on the smaller side (so I could eat more, haha). If you want to fill the whole iron, use 1 cup of batter and you’ll get a thicker waffle as well.
• This recipe makes 7 round waffles using the 1/2 cup measurement. In the photos, I broke up that round waffle into triangles, so it seems like a lot! This is a great recipe to serve a crowd!
• I don’t grease my waffle iron, as this Cuisinart Belgian Waffle Iron really doesn’t need it! If you are using a different type of waffle iron or you know yours needs grease, then definitely add it.
• Store extra waffles in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Or you can store them in the freezer for up to 3 months.
• To reheat waffles from the freezer just pop into your toaster or air fryer until warm and crispy!

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
