The wheat-based line of Nature’s Path frozen waffles has shrunken over the years (in favor of their expanding gluten-free frozen waffles selection), but they still have a few organic whole wheat options available. Each variety is spiked with bonus wholesome ingredients, like ancient grains, flaxseeds, or oat bran, but they still have that simple toaster waffle appeal.
Nature’s Path Frozen Waffles come in these Organic Wheat Varieties
You can see the rather impressive nutrition information, for toaster waffles, below. They have a nice little dose of fiber and protein with low sugars. You can even drizzle on warm nut or seed butter for a heftier breakfast. But it’s also worth noting that Nature’s Pat declares these waffles to be an “excellent source of ALA Omega 3s.”

More Allergen Notes
We did not see a ‘may contain’ statement on these products, but they are still certified kosher dairy for shared equipment. According to Nature’s Path, they have the following allergen protocols.
At Nature’s Path we have an extensive planning and cleaning schedule -which includes protein testing- for all our production facilities in order to prevent any cross contamination of our products with non-declared ingredients. All of our products that do not contain any of the top eight allergens– as listed on the ingredient label are theoretically free from them. However because of the remote chance of contamination in the plant we cannot imply that there is no possibility of minute amounts of these allergens in our products.
After handling any product that contains allergens, we do a full allergen clean-up on the production lines. We use various cleaning methods such as rinsing, hot scrubber machines, vacuums and organic compliant cleaning solution followed by protein tests on the equipment. Cleaning is supervised and checked off by our Quality Assurance team.

They look a lot like Eggo’s, but are darker and the Flax Plus are speckled with tons of flax seeds. The seeds don’t seem to contribute much to the flavor, but I enjoyed the added texture. They toasted up crunchy on the outside and nicely chewy on the inside. I also bought the Maple Cinnamon Waffles, but the wonderful scent of maple and cinnamon didn’t come through in the taste as much as I hoped. I’ll probably buy these again because they are easy, relatively tasty, and healthier than the waffles I used to buy.
The wholesome whole wheat vibe with nutritious add-ins let me enjoy these as a go-to breakfast on any busy morning. They crisp up nicely and offer delightful texture with a fairly neutral taste. In terms of flavor, they do need “dressing up” with the right toppings – whether it be maple syrup, nut butter, or jam.
