Christmas Tree Waffles

Christmas Tree Waffles

Here's a fun, Christmas recipe to get you and your family into the festive spirit! Remember waffles can be prepared ahead of time frozen and then simply place the waffle in the toaster to reheat. If you do not have a waffle machine you can make these as pancakes. 

You can use green food dye if you have older kids. But for a baby I would recommend you make it yourself. Check out our recipe for homemade green food dye below!


1 cup plain flour
1 cup full fat milk
1 egg
Knob of unsalted butter
1 tsp green food dye


  1. Preheat your waffle machine or frying pan if making pancakes.
  2. Whisk together the flour, milk and egg to make a smooth batter. Add in your green food dye. If the colour hasn’t changed significantly add more.
  3. Pour a ladle of the mixture in the centre of the waffle maker and spread a little to the sides. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Serve with your favourite toppings.
