Fluffy on the inside, crispy on the outside, these Blueberry Greek Yogurt Waffles are packed with protein and whole grains.
Summer berry season is upon us and my boys could not be more excited. Blueberries are not only the perfect finger food for toddler hands but they are naturally sweet and packed with vitamins.
While I love picking all of Michigan’s gorgeous produce, blueberries are probably one of my favorite fruits to pick because they are so easy to grab and collect! The photo above is two years old but it remains one of my all-time favorites.
To help you make use of those ripe berries, I’m sharing our new favorite breakfast recipe: Blueberry Greek Yogurt Waffles. Made with whole wheat pastry flour, plain Greek yogurt, and a pinch of cinnamon, they are the perfect vehicle for plump, juicy blueberries.
My husband likes them drizzled with pure maple syrup but the boys and I ate them on their own. When you’re using ripe, in-season berries you don’t need the much-added sweetness. Just don’t forget the cold milk.
How do you make the outside of a waffle crispy?
Seltzer water is the secret to crispy waffles on the outside but milk makes equally delicious waffles.
Your fork is waiting.
