These tiny, fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside mochi waffle bites are so easy to make and will be your new favorite waffle recipe.

The fluffy and spongy texture that the mochi powder provides to the waffles is out-of-this-world good! It reminds me of a breakfast cake.

I used sweet rice flour for these waffles and I will never skip it again. The result was fluffy, sweet, and crispy waffle bites.

I topped them with simple toppings like powdered sugar and maple syrup. They were just so light and delicate. You’ve got to try them!
