Made with Greek yogurt and fresh blueberries, this is a healthier way to enjoy your waffles. Perfect for breakfast and brunch, these blueberry yogurt waffles are delicious and easy to make, and even your picky eaters will love these!
Ingredients & substitutions
- Milk: We like to use dairy milk for a richer flavor, but you can make these waffles with plant-based milk too.
- Yogurt: Greek yogurt is a great way to add a bit of protein and it also helps to create a wonderful texture. You can use plain yogurt too.
- Eggs: To bind the dry ingredients together and help get those crispy edges.
- Honey and vanilla extract: To naturally sweeten the waffles. The honey can be swapped with maple syrup if you prefer.
- Flour: This recipe is made with all-purpose flour. We haven’t tested it, but would expect these to turn out well using a 1:1 gluten-free flour.
- Baking powder: So that your waffles come out nice and light and fluffy.
- Blueberries: Fresh blueberries are mixed into the waffle batter for a delicious sweet flavor.
How to make blueberry yogurt waffles
- Add the greek yogurt, milk, eggs and vanilla extract into a bowl.
- Whisk together until smooth.
- Add in the dry ingredients and combine.
- Fold in the blueberries.
- Place the batter in a waffle maker.
- Cook until golden brown and cooked through.
Tips for making yogurt waffles
- Grease your waffle iron before adding the batter. If you don’t, there’s a good chance your waffles will stick and be tricky to remove. Use a non-stick spray or butter.
- Preheat your waffle iron. Put the waffle maker on to preheat while you make the batter. This will ensure that you get nice and crispy edges and the centers are cooked through.
- Don’t over mix the waffle batter. When you add in the dry ingredients, stir to combine so that there is no dry flour left, but stop mixing once it’s combined. If you keep mixing, the gluten can overdevelop and you will be left with thick and chewy waffles.
- Mix up your fruits! We love these waffles with blueberries, but other fruits like strawberries or raspberries can also be used.
Frequently asked questions
Yes, you can make this recipe with frozen rather than fresh blueberries, but don’t defrost them first. Fold them into the batter straight from the freezer and cook right away or your waffles will be dyed purple.
You can easily make the batter the night before and keep it covered in the fridge ready to use in the morning. The batter can be safely stored for up to 3 days.
Leftover blueberry yogurt waffles can be wrapped in foil or plastic and reheated the next day. Reheat them in the oven at 360F til they crisp up again.
These blueberry yogurt waffles are one delicious breakfast that the whole family will love. Quick and simple to make, they are perfectly crispy and light and are one tasty way to start the day.
