Greek yogurt waffles are a delicious waffle recipe with added protein to start the day right!
Here’s a delicious, easy-to-make waffle recipe. Adding Greek yogurt to your diet is a fabulous way to add extra protein to it. These waffles have a good amount of Greek yogurt added! Each Greek yogurt waffle will give you 21 grams of protein. Since you’re supposed to get a minimum of 50-60 grams of protein per day for a healthy diet, these waffles give you a big head start on that number. Greek yogurt is also a good source of calcium and probiotics.
How to make Greek yogurt waffles:
Whisk together the dry ingredients – all-purpose flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. The wet ingredients are combined separately: Greek yogurt, milk, eggs, butter and vanilla extract. Then the two are combined to create the Greek Yogurt Waffle Dough.
Take your favorite waffle iron, heat it up, spray it with non-stick spray and drop the batter into the waffle iron. If you prefer a waffle iron that makes more waffles at a time, try this square waffle iron.
Waffles usually cook 3 to 5 minutes in the waffle iron, until cooked through, golden brown and crispy. Take the waffle out of the iron and repeat the operation with the rest of the dough.
The advantage of waffles is that they are very easy to reheat. Just put them in the microwave or put them in the toaster if you want them to be crispier. This recipe will feed about 4 people, unless all of those people are really hungry for a lot of waffles! I suggest serving a waffle per person, then having a fruit salad (or fresh fruit), lots of Bacon and iced coffee!
Serve the Greek yogurt waffles with hot maple syrup. I usually put a dab of butter on top as soon as they come out of the waffle iron so that the butter has a chance to melt before adding the syrup. Enjoy!
If you’re looking to add more Greek yogurt to your diet, be sure to try my Greek Yogurt Pancakes or this Greek Yogurt Banana Bread. A blueberry greek yogurt smoothie is a must try if you are a smoothie lover. And of course, if you haven’t yet tried making 2-Ingredient Bagels with Greek Yogurt, you definitely need to give it a go!
