Yogurt Waffles | @melaniebauer at Melanie Makes

These waffles… oh, these waffles. They. Are. Amazing. At our house, they aren’t just for breakfast. We often have them for a quick and delicious dinner. I always double the recipe so that i have extras to put in the freezer for a fast breakfast for either of the girls. They’re a definite favorite of everyone in our house. Need more convincing to try this one? This was our dinner on Super Bowl Sunday as requested by my sister-in-law.

Yogurt Waffles
Serves 5
The original recipe actually calls for sour cream and thus is named "Sour Cream Waffles." I quit purchasing sour cream a few years ago and substitute plain yogurt in recipes that call for it. I've also used plain greek yogurt here with good results. Protein packed waffles? Awesome.

  1. We make these too (maybe I got the recipe from you?). They are amazing!! A restaurant in our town serves belgian waffle sundaes and they add vanilla to their batter. I started doing the same at home and it just takes these to the next level of yumminess.

    • You did! Just moving this one over from my old site. :)

      I often will substitute vanilla sugar for the sugar in the recipe – good stuff!

  2. Just curious…why the switch from sour cream? I will have to give these waffles a try. I love the idea of using Greek yogurt for the extra protein.

    • Hey, Penny!

      Yogurt has a better nutritional value than sour cream. I also like that instead of buying both, I can buy one and use it for both purposes. My girls will actually eat plain yogurt for breakfast with sprinkles on top. (ack!)

  3. Thanks for posting this recipe! I adapted it to include strawberry yogurt and oatmeal (and made a super large batch!). I shared my version on my blog today and linked back to you!

  4. Need to try these – they sound delish!

  5. These were wonderful! I used vanilla yogurt. They were nice and fluffy!
