When people tell you they no longer order waffles at restaurants because they don’t compare to yours, it’s like the most amazing compliment ever. And that’s what I’ve heard about these Yogurt Waffles.
No joke! They’re light, fluffy and requested often by family when visiting and by my second child who deems them a fantastic choice for breakfast, lunch or dinner. This is also why she’s been deemed the carb queen.
Although you might like your waffles browned to perfection – I do, I do! – you’ll be amazed at the light and fluffy texture that awaits you on the inside of each waffle. The perfect texture contrast!
What Flour Do You Use for Waffles?
These Yogurt Waffles use a combination of all purpose flour and whole wheat flour which also gives them a heartier bite than a typical bite. It also also allows them to stand up to the insane number of toppings that usually get placed on top at our house.
What Do You Put on Waffles?
My favorite toppings? I love adorning these breakfast/brunch beauties with additional yogurt, fresh berries, granola and the requisite maple syrup. I’d be lying if I also didn’t admit to loving a smear of peanut butter on top for an on the go breakfast option, as well.
If you’re really wanting to kick the flavor up a notch in the waffle arena, this recipe is the jumping point for my family favorite Chocolate Chip Yogurt Waffles, holiday worthy Gingerbread Yogurt Waffles with Powdered Sugar Glaze and decadent Chocolate Yogurt Waffles.
Do yourself a favor and double – or triple! – this Yogurt Waffles recipe when you give them a try. If I’m being honest, I usually quadruple this recipe for our family of six to insure that I can feed everyone AND have a few leftover. They freeze beautifully for a quick and easy breakfast any day of the week and also make for an awesome lunchbox treat. Just ask my carb queen.

How to Make Yogurt Waffles
 In the bowl of an electric mixer, add flours, sugar, baking powder and salt.
 Mix on low speed to combine dry ingredients.
 Add melted melted butter, milk, yogurt and eggs to bowl.
 Mix on low speed until just combined, being careful not to over mix.
TIP: You want to mix only until there are no dry ingredients visible. Over mixing the batter will lead to chewy waffles.
 If necessary, spray waffle iron with non-stick spray. Ladle approximately 1/2 cup batter onto waffle iron and close. Cook until waffle is golden brown, according to manufacturer’s instructions.
TIP: If you’re looking for an awesome waffle iron, I can’t tell you how much I love my double Belgian waffle maker. Not only is it non-stick which makes clean-up a breeze, but it also makes cooking waffles for our family of six so much quicker as I can make two at a time.
I also love that it alerts you when your waffle has reached your desired doneness. No more constantly open and shutting the waffle iron to make sure your waffles are done to your liking!
