    Do you have a favorite breakfast dish? Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, and I’m usually a savory breakfast person.

    I love a traditional eggs, bacon, toast and hash browns breakfast. I’m always a sucker for a good eggs benedict. Or if I’m in a hurry, an everything bagel is a quick and easy choice, too.

    To be honest, I really just love it all. But when I’m craving something sweet for breakfast, these homemade blueberry waffles are my go to.

    PRO TIP: Use frozen blueberries instead of fresh, but make sure to thaw and drain them first!

    I almost always have all of the ingredients on hand. And once the batter is made, you let the waffle make do the rest of the work! Easy peasy.

    Sure, you could use a pre-made waffle or pancake mix to make these waffles, but trust me when I tell you- homemade waffles are so much better.

    PRO TIP: Be sure to read the instructions from your waffle maker to know exactly how long to cook each waffle. (All waffle makers are different!) It will take the same amount of time as it does to make regular waffles.

    How to make blueberry waffles from scratch:

    Start by separating the eggs. Put the whites in a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until frothy and stiff. Beating the egg whites allows for air to be incorporated.

    Next, mix all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a different bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, vanilla extract, milk and melted butter.

    Slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Gently fold in the egg whites and the blueberries.

    PRO TIP: Do not over mix the batter! This creates rubbery waffles.

    Then spray your waffle iron with cooking spray and cook until golden brown, according to your appliance’s directions. This typically takes about 4-5 minutes for each waffle.

    Do I have to use a waffle maker to make these blueberry waffles? 

    You know I try my hardest to find work-arounds for special appliances, but for waffles there isn’t one. You are going to need a waffle maker.

    Do you have any tips for using a waffle maker? 

    I have to tell you that it’s hard to mess up waffles, but people do it all the time.

    • Make sure you let the waffle maker heat up all the way. Don’t be impatient!
    • Cook until the edges of your blueberry waffles are crispy. This ensures the inside batter is not still soupy.
    • Use plenty of cooking spray for an easy release.
    • Set your waffle maker on a kitchen towel to catch any loose batter.

    Is a waffle maker easy to clean? 

    I think so! I make sure I clean my waffle maker after every use because I don’t want anything sticking to it.

    Here are some tips:

    • Make sure the waffle maker is unplugged and cooled down
    • Use a dry paper towel to remove any excess oil
    • Be sure to use a kitchen brush to get the crumbs off the waffle iron
    • Use a damp cloth to get any debris or crumbs off

    Do I have to use whole milk? 

    You can use reduced fat milk, but I wouldn’t go all the way to skim. You need a little bit of fat to give the waffles some volume.

    Can I freeze blueberry waffles? 

    Sure! Freeze already cooked waffles and then pop them in the toaster when you are ready to eat them. This works best with a standard size waffle opposed to Belgium waffles.

    Belgium waffles can be reheat in a toaster oven or regular oven on low broil (watch closely).

    Can I use a regular waffle maker instead of a Belgium waffle machine? 

    Sure! Just follow the instructions on the machine for cooking.

    • Separate eggs, beat egg whites until frothy and stiff.
    • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together dry ingredients including baking powder, sugar, flour and fine sea salt.

    • Next, fold in egg whites and blueberries.
    • Prep waffle iron with cooking spray and cook according to appliance directions. Typically about 4-5 minutes each.
    • Top with powdered sugar, fresh blueberries and whipped cream.


    If you just rinsed the blueberries, make sure they are dry before adding. They won’t stick to the batter and will add moisture to the batter making the waffles not get crispy on the edges.
