My son requested blueberry waffles for breakfast the other morning, so I found a wonderful waffle recipe from Simply Homemade Chef. There are several things I really like about this particular recipe:
#1 It uses whole wheat flour.
#2 There is minimal butter.
#3 I used reduced fat sour cream and it did not alter the waffles at all.
#4 I LOVE BLUEBERRIES!
Blueberry Sour Cream Waffles from Simply Homemade Chef
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream
3 large eggs
1 1/2 cups blueberries, frozen or fresh
Preheat waffle iron and lightly oil the griddles.
Whisk flours, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl to combine. Make a well in the center.
In a separate bowl, whisk melted butter, milk, sour cream, and eggs until well combined. Pour mixture into well of dry mixture. Stir just until smooth, but do not over mix.
Before adding blueberries, toss them in a little flour to keep them from sinking to the bottom of the batter. Gently fold blueberries into batter.
Spoon 1/4 cup of batter onto waffle iron. Cook until waffle is golden, about 3-4 minutes. Makes 12 square waffles.
This recipe was incredibly easy. I loved the tip about tossing the blueberries with flour – I had never tried that before and it really worked. The waffles were hearty, filling, and delicious!
My son inhaled his blueberry waffle, and I threw some little mini chocolate chips in the remaining batter to make a few for my daughter. You probably could have guessed that, right? I do hope you’ll give this recipe a try – you won’t be disappointed!
