Christmas Tree Waffles

Updated: Dec 16, 2023

One of the things I make for my kids every Christmas season are these Christmas Tree Waffles! I made them one year and now they've become a tradition in our household and my kids love them!

Christmas Tree Waffles

Making holiday-themed food is always so fun for me. These Christmas Tree Waffles are a great breakfast to enjoy this Christmas season. These semi-homemade waffles are simple enough to make on school mornings or let the kids help make and decorate their Christmas Tree Waffles on the weekend.

The best part is that they are made with spinach (not food dye), so you get lots of good vitamins. They don’t taste like spinach either. My kids love them, and even request them!

I’ve made spinach waffles from scratch before, but these Bisquick spinach waffles are just as good, and much easier! I just follow the recipe on the back of the box of Bisquick for waffles, but add spinach and adjust the milk a little.

First, to incorporate the spinach into the waffles, mix the spinach and milk together in a blender until smooth.

Christmas Tree Waffles (with spinach)


  • 2 cups original Bisquick mix

  • 1 large container of fresh baby spinach – about 16 oz

  • 1 1/2 cups milk + spinach blended (note: the original recipe calls for 1 1/3 cup but I increased it just a little.)

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

  • 1 egg

  • toppings: whipped cream, sprinkles, Christmas M&M's

Special Tools: Blender, waffle maker


1. In a blender, add in your 1 1/2 cups milk and the whole container of spinach. Blend until spinach is incorporated.

2. In a large bowl, add your Bisquick mix, milk mixture, vegetable oil, and egg. Whisk together your ingredients until smooth.

3. Pour the waffle batter into your prepared waffle maker and cook. I use this flip Belgian Waffle maker.

4. Cut apart your waffle triangles and arrange them into a tree shape on your plate.

5. Top with holiday M&M’s to look like ornaments and add a squirt of whipped cream at the top as a star!

Serve and enjoy! My kids love them with hot cocoa in cute Santa mugs!

To be extra fancy, try drizzling them with chocolate syrup or adding sprinkles!
