Greek Yogurt Waffles

Happy Saturday! Let’s eat some waffles!

I recently purchased a new waffle maker and went a little crazy making waffles. My first attempt at homemade waffles started with chocolate waffles, then came banana and finally these Greek Yogurt Waffles. The Greek Yogurt Waffles were by far my favorite. They turned out soft and fluffy on the inside and are crisp on the outside.

Crispy Greek Yogurt Waffles

One thing I came across a lot when making waffles was that they weren’t getting crispy on the outside. There’s nothing worse than a limp soggy waffle. To fix the problem I researched tricks for a crisp waffle and came upon this recipe by Pam Anderson. She has found that adding cornstarch to the batter helps to keep the waffles nice and crispy.

Super Easy Greek Yogurt Waffles

Greek yogurt adds a nice tang and richness to the waffles. It also provides an added boost of protein. Make it even healthier and add in some flax seed!

Freeze any leftovers and reheat for a quick weekday breakfast or dinner (I won’t judge).


Easy Greek Yogurt Waffles

To make these waffles simply whisk the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients separately. Combine the two and fold gently. Pour into a hot waffle maker and cook until golden brown.

Once the waffles are done place them in a 200 degree oven while the rest of the waffles are cooking. This keeps the waffles warm and crispy.

A couple tips for making the best waffles every time:

  • Don’t overwork the batter. Whisk until the dry and wet ingredients are combined that’s it.
  • Keep waffles warm in a 200 degree oven to stay crisp.
  • Don’t stack waffles on top of one another when they are warm. They will loose their crispiness.

You can serve them plain or drizzled with maple syrup or honey. Or top with my Mixed Berry Compote!

  • These waffles look so delicious, Kelley! And healthy too! I love when a waffle is crisp on the outside and soft on the inside – that’s the best way to eat a waffle. I learned to use egg whites from the Pioneer Woman for making a crisp waffle, and I’ve also tried seltzer from an America’s Test Kitchen recipe. Both produce great results too if you’re ever in the mood to try something different with your new waffle maker. I can’t wait to try this recipe! 🙂

  • Need to try these Greek yogurt waffles! They sound so delicious! Great pictures!

  • These waffles look amazing, Kelley! They’re my idea of the dream weekend breakfast! Love the addition of Greek yogurt, makes the waffles fluffy and lighter! I need to buy a waffle maker now to try your recipe! Pinned! 😀

  • These waffles look gorgeous, Kelley! Crispy waffles are my favorite! Love using Greek yogurt in pancakes and now I can’t wait to try them in waffles next time 🙂

  • These look great Kelley! I am such a waffle fanatic so I definitely need to try adding greek yogurt for that extra protein boost. Gorgeous pictures as always!

  • Wonderful! I really have to make waffles again soon, I must have said it 20 times this year. My children would love these, not to mention my husband, I will have to double the recipe to make sure we have enough… 🙂
