Bringing the Magic Home…

Hidden Veggie Mickey Waffles

Mickey Waffles full of Hidden Veggies. That kids love.

What you’ll need:

Mickey Waffle Maker, pancake mix, vegetable purée (baby food), water, oil. Essentially, this is a waffle loaded with vegetable purée.

You can steam and purée your own vegetables, or you can use baby food.

We used baby food. It’s easy and there are a ton of different combinations you can try.

I recognize that to make Mickey waffles, you need a Mickey waffle maker. Using our Mickey waffle maker is one way of Bringing the Magic Home. Here are two great choices…




1 cup whole wheat pancake mix

*2 4 oz jars of Baby Food with fruits or vegetables of your choice (equals a total of 1 cup of baby food)

1/2 cup water

1 tsp vegetable oil

waffle maker grease of choice (I like Coconut Oil Pam)

Heat up the waffle maker. Mix together pancake mix, purees, water and oil. Whisk together until a smooth consistency. Grease waffle maker. Pour mix into waffle maker and close lid. Cook for recommended time period. I have found three minutes to be a good time, but follow the instructions on your waffle maker.

Bringing the Magic Home - Healthy Vegetable Mickey Waffles*We used Beechnut baby food – one jar of carrot, corn,  and pumpkin and one jar of apple, squash, and zucchini.

They turned out great, but you could do many, many different combinations. These were a huge hit with a 10 month old (ripped into tiny pieces) and my 3 year-old, to whom we gave a dip. Depending on the flavors you choose, the dip could be sweet like syrup or savory like ranch or ketchup. Yes, I just used savory to describe toddler condiments…

She asked for thirds, which never happens.


Here are a few baby food flavors and combinations that lend themselves well to this recipe. I made the product images Amazon links if you are interested in trying this out. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do. Have a Magical Day!

    Why have plain old waffles for breakfast when you can have Mickey Mouse shaped waffles?

    How much baby food do you use if you aren’t using jars? Do you have an actual measurement to provide?

      I was using 4 ounce jars for this recipe, which equates to half a cup. Enjoy!! -Renee
