Waffles or pancakes. It’s such an epic contrast of styles. Of course, I love blueberry pancakes! Who doesn’t? But it’s also so hard to resist the idea of blueberry waffles.
Why? Why do we like waffles so much? Because with waffles you get a crispier crust and those waffle pockets give opportunities for the sugar in the batter to caramelize. We don’t get that as much with pancakes.
Sometimes a waffle is exactly what you’re looking for. Imagine a nice, big stack of blueberry waffles topped with blueberry sauce. It’s perfect!
How to Make Blueberry Waffles
So, let’s talk about how to make this blueberry waffles recipe. It’s really quite simple.
- Stir together dry ingredients from the flour to the baking powder
- Mix together wet ingredients from the plant-based milk to the vanilla
- Stir the two together until combined
- Gently stir in the blueberries
- Heat the waffle iron
- Add the batter to a heated waffle iron and cook until golden brown
- Transfer cooked waffles to a pan in a heated oven to stay warm. Continue making waffles until the batter is gone.
Why This Recipe is a Winner
- Both all-purpose and whole wheat flours are added to make these waffles delicious and healthy, too
- Fresh or frozen blueberries are added to the waffle batter to create bursts of blueberries throughout
- Melted vegan butter in the batter makes these waffles buttery and rich in every bite!
You can find the full printable recipe, including ingredient quantities, below. But first, here are some explanations of ingredients and steps to help you make this recipe perfect every time.
Here are the ingredients you’ll need for this recipe:
- Flour — I use all-purpose flour, but you can substitute whole wheat pastry flour (different than whole wheat flour).
- Plant-based milk — I use mostly soy milk. You can substitute any plant-based milk such as almond milk.
- Ground flaxseed — Ground flaxseed is a great egg replacer, or you can use a chia egg instead.
- Apple cider vinegar — It’s the combination of plant-based milk with vinegar that makes vegan buttermilk. And that is my favorite trick for fluffy waffles!
Quick Fix Tip
Use frozen blueberries for these waffles to keep things simple. Besides, frozen blueberries work best because they don’t burst into the batter as easily.
This is a vegan waffle recipe, but you won’t miss the eggs, dairy, or butter. We’re using ground flax as an egg replacer, and it works great. Dairy-free waffles are just as good!
Here are some great tips to help you make these homemade blueberry waffles perfect every time:
- Because vegan butter comes salted, there’s no need for additional salt to be added to the batter.
- The batter may thicken up as it sits, if so, feel free to add more plant-based milk or another tablespoon of melted vegan butter. Thinner batter will create crispier waffles.
- I like to use a 1/2 cup measuring cup to dispense batter evenly into the waffle iron.
- Use the back of a measuring cup or spoon to gently press the batter around, making sure every section of the waffle iron is filled.
- I love the combination of all-purpose and whole wheat flour in this recipe, however, you can use only all-purpose flour or even whole wheat pastry flour if you prefer.
- If you have a Belgium waffle maker, you can use this batter to make blueberry Belgium waffles.
- Fruit waffles are delicious, so feel free to substitute your favorite berries, such as raspberries or even a mixture of berries.
I think you’ll agree these are the best blueberry waffles! You can use the blueberry sauce from my vegan cheesecake recipe. Of course, maple syrup is always tasty over waffles or pancakes.
