Blueberry Greek Yogurt Waffles

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.

    These look absolutely fabulous. Do they freeze well by chance? Would love to make them for my husband’s breakfast before work quicly in the toaster.

  2. Your kids and I definitely have a love of blueberries in common. I can’t get enough! Love these waffles – and the juicy bluebs in every bite!

  3. I thought I left a message here yesterday, but don’t see it. I made spelt and whole wheat apple cinnamon waffles yesterday. I never add oil or butter to my batter.

  4. I want to go blueberry picking! Right now I am so obsessed! I love how you have given these waffles the protein punch – perfect for busy weekends!

  5. Okay, I love a good waffle and I can tell by this picture that your waffles are amazing!! My little guy will also be having berry stained hands and face all season long :)

  6. I NEED a waffle iron! All of a sudden I’m seeing excellent waffle recipes, and it’s making me realize that they have been totally missing from my life since forever. Hopefully we’ll get our garage addition done soon, and have enough storage for things like a waffle iron so I can make these.

  7. I made buttermilk apple cinnamon waffles this morning. I used spelt and whole wheat white flour I ground myself.

  8. Love it! Definitely giving that a try. I may add some jam. Probably something to complement the berries but i’m also considering something with more contrast. Mint probably? What do you think? I just want to make the taste more interesting and a bit challenging. Or maybe just get a mochito with the waffles?
