These Greek Yogurt Waffles are the BEST because they are:
- Quick! Ready to eat in just 30 minutes.
- Easy! Combine your wet and dry ingredients separately then add them together. Pour onto a waffle maker and cook!
- Soft on the inside! So fluffy – the perfect texture!
- Crispy on the outside! I added cornstarch to the batter thanks to this recommendation by Pam Anderson. It really makes a difference. I put my waffles in the oven at 200ºF to keep them crisp while I make the rest of the batch.
- Healthy! The Greek yogurt adds extra protein. You could make them even healthier by adding flaxseed!
- Freezable! Yes, you can make a double batch of these and freeze them later for no-fuss mornings throughout the week.
- Delicious! The Greek yogurt in these waffles gives them an added tang and richness. SO good!
How to make this Healthy Greek Yogurt Waffle recipe:
It’s SUPER easy – just 4 steps!
- Whisk the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients separately.
- Combine the two and fold gently.
- Pour the batter into a hot waffle maker and cook until golden brown.
- Once the waffles are cooked, place them in a 200ºF oven while you finish making the batch. This keeps the waffles warm and crispy.
How do I freeze waffles?
- Let the waffles cool completely after cooking.
- Wrap them individually in aluminum foil to help prevent freezer burn.
- Place them in a large ziplock bag in the freezer. These frozen waffles will last for up to 3 months.
To reheat them, simply place them directly in a toaster, toaster oven, or an oven at 200ºF for 10 minutes, or until they are heated thoroughly.
Tips for making the BEST waffles every time:
- Don’t overwork the batter. Whisk until the dry and wet ingredients are just combined! The more you overwork the batter the tougher the waffles will turn out.
- While you are making the waffles keep the ones that are already done in a 200ºF oven to stay nice and crispy and warm.
- Don’t stack waffles on top of one another when they are warm. They will lose their crispiness and get soggy.
My favorite toppings for Greek yogurt waffles or pancakes:
Fruit – cut into small pieces
- Berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, etc.)
Nuts and other toppings – sliced or crushed
