Honey Yogurt Waffles

Jump to Recipe


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:)

  • 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 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).
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

  1. 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.

  2. ahhh! I’m always looking for new waffle recipes (I do not use our waffle maker nearly enough and Josh LOVES waffles). This is book marked! I’m so glad I found your blog 🙂 🙂

  3. your breakfasts are so inspiring and lovely…Although I’ve been making these recipes and turning them into supper 🙂 I think waffles will go on the menu plan for next week! 🙂
    Thanks once again, for a great recipe

  4. 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! ^_^

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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.!
