The ultimate comfort food for your warrior physique
Viking Waffles has become a staple for professional athletes, supermodels, busy professionals, families with children, and diabetics, who are focused on fulfilling their days with the nostalgia of a home-cooked comfort food that makes them stronger and more energized.
Our founder, Benedicte Engen began experimenting with healthier alternatives to the traditional Norwegian waffles after asking herself questions like: "Why can't we eat delicious AND healthy waffles guilt-free every day?" . She combined her true passion and belief that everyone deserves to eat healthy without the feeling of depriving themselves or restricting themselves of their favorite foods. A sustainable healthy lifestyle is about finding more healthy and filling options you actually ENJOY, like Viking Waffles.
Viking Waffles was founded by Benedicte Engen, a Norwegian soccer athlete & crossfit trainer with an educational background in Medicine in Norway. During her medical study she learned about nutrition and the preventive aspects of eating healthy. That awareness and her love for her grandmother's traditional Norwegian waffles inspired her to experiment with her own diet and ultimately create a healthy alternative, the Viking Waffles. She dropped out of Medicine school in Norway, moved to New York to follow her passion to be able to share the Viking Waffles with the world.
She started handbaking all waffles from a Church kithen in Manhattan that over time led her to build Viking Waffles own bakery in Manhattan. Still today all waffles are handbaked and shipped daily with the same love and care she put into her business.
