Homemade Waffles with Greek Yogurt

Homemade waffles can make an excellent meal any time of the day! Top them with some yogurt or fruit and they become a filling and healthy meal.

The first time I made waffles with a waffle iron at home, the waffles exploded all over my kitchen! From that day forward, whenever I make a new waffle recipe, I am sure to put a small amount of batter in the iron to start and watch to see how much they grow before I trust the directions. I'm still cleaning up waffle batter on my waffle iron from that first mess.

Family Thoughts & Tips:

My kids LOVE waffles for breakfast, lunch or dinner! I always try to flash freeze a few waffles from each batch that I make in order to store them for a later date.

To make these waffles even healthier, I make a blueberry syrup made with frozen wild blueberries (recipe to follow shortly).

  8. Thanks for the recipe and idea to use greek yogourt in the batter. With the rainy weather this week I've been in a mood to make a more filling breakfast than my usual smoothies and I think this might do the trick.
