History and Tradition
Viking Waffles was founded by Benedicte Engen, a Norwegian fitness enthusiast, crossfit trainer, kettlebell and yoga instructor with an educational background in pre-medicine in Norway. During her medical study she learned about nutrition and the preventive aspects of eating healthy. That awareness plus her love for her grandmother's traditional Norwegian waffles inspired her to start experimenting 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 to the world.
