Honey Yogurt Waffles

Honey Yogurt Waffles

I try to eat yogurt every day, but Josh won’t touch the stuff. Wait, I take that back, Josh always makes our homemade yogurt, but he won’t eat it.  He hates the smell, texture, and taste. So when I made Honey Yogurt Waffles one morning I decided to keep the yogurt part of the waffles a secret. I am so sneaky:)

I asked Josh if he could guess the secret ingredient, but he isn’t very good at that game. After he polished off two waffles I told him he just ate yogurt waffles. He wasn’t upset because he really enjoyed them. Now, he will eat yogurt, but only in waffles.

These waffles ares soft, fluffy, and sweet. Add Honey Yogurt Waffles to your breakfast or dinner menu today! Next time I don’t have to hide the ingredients from Josh. In fact, I am thinking these would be the perfect waffles for breakfast in bed. I better tell Josh to get cooking:)

Honey Yogurt Waffles

Yield: Serves 4


3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup old-fashioned oats
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/4 cups skim milk
3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/3 cup honey
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Maple syrup or honey-for serving


1. Melt the butter in the microwave and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together flours, oats, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon. In another bowl, whisk together the milk, yogurt, honey, eggs and vanilla until smooth. Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and whisk until just combined. Gently fold in the melted butter.

2. Preheat and lightly grease the waffle iron.  When the waffle iron is hot, pour batter into the wells of the waffle iron. (Fill according to the manufacturer's instructions).
Close the lid and bake until the waffle is golden and set. Carefully remove waffle from iron and serve warm with maple syrup or a drizzle of honey.

Note: To keep the waffles warm, preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Place a tray of waffles in the oven to keep warm until serving.

    These waffles look so delicious. I was just tweeting about how I’m so hungry for a good breakfast and wish I had someone to make it for me! I wish you would magically appear in my kitchen with a batch.

      Thank you! I will have to try them with Cabot yogurt sometime, never tried it:)

  21. Alina — January 26, 2011 @ 9:23 am

    Wow these waffles sound pretty healthy as well – with whole wheat flour and oats in the batter. I love anything with yogurt or sour cream in it! ^_^

  22. Lucy Lean — January 26, 2011 @ 9:29 am

    i put yogurt in everything – it’s a great non-fat alternative – will try these

  23. Kathy - Panini Happy — January 26, 2011 @ 9:39 am

    Sneaky, sneaky, Maria! Thanks for reminding me of what I can make with the leftover yogurt I just saw in the fridge. My husband makes the waffles in our house – I’ll get him on it!

  24. Susan — January 26, 2011 @ 9:42 am

    AND it’s Waffle Wednesday!! :)

  25. Joanne — January 26, 2011 @ 10:30 am

    I love sneaking good-for-you ingredients into recipes and then laughing to myself when proclaimed haters of said ingredients actually like them! These waffles sound delicious!

  26. A waffle maker may be just one more kitchen gadget I couldn’t use, but with a recipe like this, I would use it all the time! Thanks for sharing this tasty recipe. They look so delicious!

  27. Kristen — January 26, 2011 @ 10:52 am

    You are so sneaky :)
    Nick is the same way about sour cream. He won’t eat anything if he knows that there is sour cream in it, but he loves anything I make that has sour cream in it and he’s not aware of it.

  28. Michelle @ Brown Eyed Baker — January 26, 2011 @ 11:11 am

    These look so good! And I love the breakfast in bed idea!

  29. kat — January 26, 2011 @ 11:13 am

    I love using yogurt in baking!

  30. Nancy@acommunaltable — January 26, 2011 @ 11:24 am

    This may just get me to commit to buying a waffle maker!!!

  31. Sues — January 26, 2011 @ 11:27 am

    So funny Josh makes yogurt but doesn’t eat it! Glad he can enjoy the fruits of his labor now :) This is such an awesome idea!

  32. susan — January 26, 2011 @ 11:43 am

    I love the idea of using oats in your waffles! I make huge batches of waffles, then flash freeze them and bag them up so the kids can have waffles anytime they want.!

  33. tracy — January 26, 2011 @ 12:03 pm

    Hey!! Thanks for the link…your waffles have me DROOLING! I happen to have all of these ingredients…dangerous!

  34. Heather (Heather's Dish) — January 26, 2011 @ 12:09 pm

    holy yum! these sound amazing…what type of waffle iron do you have?

  35. Christina — January 26, 2011 @ 12:29 pm

    I wish I had a waffle iron! I was just thinking about getting one the other day, if only we had space! They sound wonderful, especially for breakfast in bed. :)

  36. I just love waffles! I need to hurry up and make a batch again. Maybe this weekend…

  37. Lacey @ — January 26, 2011 @ 1:50 pm

  38. Crystal's Cozy Kitchen — January 26, 2011 @ 2:00 pm

    These look absolutely wonderful, and the name just says it all… my mouth is watering and I want to go make waffles!

  39. Tracey — January 26, 2011 @ 3:32 pm
