Everyone knows that a solid breakfast is an important part of your day. I’ve never been a big fan of frozen waffles but I saw these “Kodiak Cakes” Protein-Packed Power Waffles from Aldi in the freezer case and I was intrigued.
Remember how I just said that I’ve never been a fan of frozen waffles? I may have to rethink that notion after trying these protein waffles from Aldi.
Protein Waffles from Aldi
I came across these Aldi power waffles a few days ago as I was meandering through one of our three local Aldi stores.
Our kids occasionally have freezer waffles for breakfast as they’re affordable, convenient, and satisfying. Plus, most importantly, they will eat them.
On the other hand, I haven’t had a frozen waffle for breakfast in eons so I figured I would give these protein waffles from Aldi a try and let you know my thoughts on them.
I’ll be honest with you, I have another reason for trying this healthy breakfast option from Aldi. I came across a great deal on this Ambiano Air Fryer Oven with Rotisserie while shopping at Aldi. I have been thinking about getting an air fryer for some time, it this looked like the perfect time.
How to Make these Aldi Power Waffles
You can make these power waffles from Alid a couple of ways:
- Make them in the Toaster
- Make them in the Oven
The package says to use the lowest setting on your toaster or toaster oven and toast them until they are crispy and hot.
If you’re using a regular oven:
- Preheat your oven to 375-400°F.
- Place the waffles flat on a baking sheet for 3 to 5 minutes, until crispy and hot
Using my new air fryer oven from Aldi, I make heat these protein waffles for 4 minutes at 400° F, for a warm and crispy perfection.
Kodiak Cakes Power Waffles from Aldi
These frozen waffles are made by Kodiak Cakes, a food company that specializes in healthy and environmentally responsibly eating options. The link to their website tells you all about who they are and showcases their huge variety of food products, along with some fun recipes.
At Aldi, these will set you back $4.89, versus the $5.50 you would pay from Kodiak Cakes, which of course would not include shipping. Each box contains 8 waffles, and at 2 waffles per serving, you are getting a nice healthy breakfast for about $1.25 per serving.
That’s tough to beat.

Our Rating for these Power Waffles
I enjoy these frozen breakfast waffles from Aldi. They are ready to eat in a few minutes and seriously tasty. Aldi makes it easy to add some bling to this frozen breakfast option by using some of their fresh berries, fruit, and of course pure maple syrup.
These waffles taste great with some orange juice, or even just a glass of water. There really is nothing not to like about these protein waffles. I hope you give them a try and I would love to hear your thoughts on them too.
