How To Make Nutella Waffles (Step By Step)

This recipe is pretty straightforward. The not-so-secret ingredient is Nutella (obviously). I added some to the batter and then drizzled it all over the hot waffles.

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt. Stir to combine and set aside.

Dry ingredients

In a second bowl, combine the wet ingredients: eggs, milk, butter, and vanilla extract. Whisk to combine until frothy.

Add the Nutella and continue whisking until the Nutella is well incorporated. It’s okay if you see some chocolate lumps.

Wet ingredients

While stirring, add the wet ingredients to the dry. Continue whisking until the mixture is smooth.

Heat the waffle maker and brush both sides with vegetable oil. Scoop the batter onto the waffle maker and close. Cook until you are able to open the waffle maker without any force.

Transfer the waffle to a plate and repeat with the remainder of the batter.

Recipe Tips:

  • For extra fluffy waffles, separate the egg whites from the yolks. Beat the whites until stiff peaks form, then fold them into the batter as the last step. This little effort adds a whole new level of lightness to your waffles.
  • Get creative with your toppings. Beyond Nutella, consider fresh berries, whipped cream, or a dusting of powdered sugar to turn these waffles into a truly customized treat.

Storage Instructions

Store the Nutella waffles in an air-tight container or ziplock bag in the fridge for up to a week and in the freezer for up to several months. You can store the batter in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week and freeze for up to several months. To use after frozen, thaw to room temperature and use as usual.

Additions & Substitutions


  • Chocolate Chips: For those who can’t get enough chocolate, sprinkle some chocolate chips into the batter for extra gooey bites.
  • Banana Slices: Adding sliced bananas to the batter or on top of your waffles introduces a sweet, fruity contrast to the rich Nutella flavor.
  • Chopped Nuts: A handful of chopped hazelnuts or almonds can add a nice crunch and new texture.


  • Almond Flour: For a gluten-free option, substitute almond flour for all-purpose flour. You may need to adjust the milk quantity slightly for the right consistency.
  • Coconut Sugar: Swap out the regular sugar with coconut sugar for a subtle caramel-like sweetness that pairs wonderfully with Nutella.
  • Dairy-Free Milk: Almond, soy, or oat milk can easily replace whole milk for those looking for a dairy-free version.
  • Vegan Butter: If you’re catering to a vegan diet, vegan butter is a perfect substitute for regular butter, keeping the waffles plant-based.
  • Egg Replacer: To make these waffles egg-free, use your favorite egg replacer or a flax egg (1 tbsp ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tbsp water per egg).

Recipe FAQs

What should I serve with Nutella waffles?

Pair these Nutella waffles with crispy bacon or savory sausage links to balance the sweetness with some saltiness. They also go great with scrambled eggs on the side for a full breakfast feast.

How can I avoid Nutella clumps in the batter?

It is okay to have some clumps in your batter, but if you want to avoid that, then add the Nutella at the very end after the waffle batter is mixed. This will give the same fudgy texture.

Can I make these waffles gluten-free?

If you want gluten-free waffles, use the following recipe to make the flour. Use this mix instead of the all-purpose flour with 1:1 ratio.

  • 1 ⅓ Cup Chickpea Flour
  • ¾ Cup Almond Flour
  • ¼ Cup Potato Starch
  • 1 tbsp Baking Powder
  • ½ Tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp Xanthan Gum
