Whole Wheat, Oat and Blueberry Waffles

Leggo my Eggo! Who needs those nasty freezer waffles when you can have this deliciously healthy tastiness?! I like to make a triple batch of these and freeze em so we have them for breakfast throughout the week. My mom and dad do waffles every Saturday morning, and I remember as a kid thinking it was the COOLEST thing when we had waffles on Saturday mornings, so I decided it was something I wanted to do with my family as well. Also, I wanted to make a point of explaining why I sometimes say organic and I sometimes don't. I know it is expensive to buy all organic. I mean we can't afford it either. However, there are some things that are more important to have organic than others. Some things have more chemicals and hormones than others. So, if you see me make a point of saying organic, it is because it is something that is important for me to have organic...just a little side note. ;)


2/3 C Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 C Organic Oats
1 Tbs Raw Honey
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp Sea Salt
2/3 C Organic Milk or Almond Milk
1 Organic Egg
1/4 C Oikos Organic Vanilla Greek Yogurt
3/4 C Fresh or Frozen Blueberries (I have some fresh picked from an organic blueberry patch! YUM!)


Mix the flour, oats, honey, baking powder and salt together. Add in the milk, egg and yogurt and mix well. ( I use my kitchen aid stand mixer) Add in the blueberries and stir with a spoon or spatula. Spray your waffle iron with non stick olive oil cooking spray. Spoon 1/2 C of batter on the waffle iron and smooth around until ALMOST to the edges. I keep mine set on high so it makes them more browned but if you want them soft, adjust your heat setting to medium. Follow your waffle iron directions from here on out. And btw, my waffle iron has never been as messier.....These suckers will squirt blueberry goo out the sides. Oh well, they are totally worth it! :)


  1. We love waffles too. I am totally trying these tomorrow as I have some blueberries in the fridge. Now if only I could get Benjo to like real maple syrup as much as the fake stuff! :)

  2. My new nickname for you is going to be "my little gf organic spaz" (or even better g-fos) ;):) These babies look yummy! I made blueberry pancakes with my wheat berry wheat...they were amazing. Love you bff g-fos!

  3. BAHA! Brooke! Can't wait to see if you actually remember to call me that! And isn't that REAL, FRESH,ORGANIC, FRESH GROUND WHOLE WHEAT, flour the best?! :) And Jill, I totally feel ya on the syrup...except it's me. :) I have decided not to buy the fake and eat it anymore, and I am growing accustom to the taste of the REAL good stuff, but it has taken me some time. :) I use to love that fake stuff.

  4. Just made these and loved them! I didn't put the blueberries in the batter...just put fresh ones on the top! The oats make them chewy...yummy!
