Whole Wheat Yogurt Blueberry Waffles are crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside with Greek Yogurt, and a mix of whole wheat and oat flours.
YOGURT BLUEBERRY WAFFLES
Blueberry Waffles are everything you could ever want in a breakfast recipe. They’re soft, full of flavor, and packed with healthy ingredients. Blueberries, Greek Yogurt, oats, and whole wheat make them so nutritious. And you’ll be amazed at how perfect this Healthy Waffle recipe comes out of the waffle maker every time.
If you’re feeding a big crowd, serve Oat Waffles with other breakfast favorites like Oven Baked Turkey Bacon or Mini Spinach Frittatas. When making waffles for a big group, keep the waffles warm in the oven after they come out of the waffle iron. That way you can start early and serve more warm waffles at a time, instead of everyone waiting on the waffle iron.
These are also a great recipe to make a big batch of on the weekend and enjoy leftovers throughout the week. Either save extra waffle batter, and cook them up fresh in the waffle iron, or save them after baking. If you save already made waffles in the fridge, reheat them in the toaster. They’ll stay crispy and soft, just like they’re fresh from the waffle maker.
HOMEMADE BLUEBERRY SAUCE
There are so many delicious toppings you can put on healthy waffles. Top them with maple syrup, butter, whipped cream, powdered sugar, sliced bananas, or extra fresh blueberries. The list goes on, but one of the best toppings for this great recipe is a low calorie blueberry sauce. Here is the easy recipe for it.
- Combine 1 cup of frozen blueberries, 2 tablespoons water, ½ tablespoon lemon zest, 1 tablespoon honey, and a pinch of salt in a saucepan.
- Cover the pan and bring to a simmer on medium heat.
- Let simmer until the liquids combine.
- Remove the blueberry sauce from heat and let cool for 5 minutes.
- Serve over Oat Waffles and garnish with fresh blueberries if desired.

VARIATIONS ON YOGURT BLUEBERRY WAFFLES
- Add-ins: The next time you make this waffle recipe, there are lots of ingredients you can add to the blueberries. Put some cinnamon in the Blueberry Waffle Recipe for some extra flavor. Or add more fresh fruits to the blueberries like raspberries or mashed bananas. The bananas will add extra moisture to the batter, so you can decrease the other wet ingredients for banana oat waffles.
- Flour Alternatives: This Whole Wheat Waffle recipe uses a combination of oat flour and whole wheat flour. But you can change the flour in the recipe depending on what you have. You can substitute the whole-grain and oat flour for all-purpose flour. Just keep in mind that white flour is not as healthy of an ingredient. If you need gluten-free waffles try using almond flour, coconut flour, or cornmeal flour. All of these options are gluten-free. Just using oat-flour without the whole-wheat flour is also gluten-free.
- Pancakes: If you prefer pancakes to waffles, you can turn this into a blueberry pancake recipe. Use the same ingredients to make Greek yogurt blueberry pancake batter with just one change. Instead of using 2/3 of a cup yogurt, you only need ½ cup for pancakes. Whisk the pancake batter together, just like you would for waffles. Then make the pancakes on a skillet or frying pan, instead of in a waffle iron.
WHAT TO SERVE WITH BLUEBERRY WAFFLES
HOW TO STORE YOGURT BLUEBERRY WAFFLES
- Serve: Once you’ve made the Blueberry Waffles, don’t leave them at room temperature for more than 2 hours.
- Store: You can keep leftover Blueberry Waffles in the fridge for 2-3 days. Cover the waffles in plastic wrap or seal them in an airtight container.
- Freeze: This Healthy Waffle recipe can last in the freezer for up to 3 months. For meal prep make a double batch of the waffle batter and freeze half the waffles for another morning.
