Making waffles for your household is a handy habit because they refrigerate well and they freeze very well. They are quite filling and you know exactly what went into them. I was raised to put peanut butter and cottage cheese on my waffles–sounds crazy but it is a remarkably balanced carb-protein snack. If you’re in the market for that kind of thing.

These have no sugar, so that means you can be extra enthusiastic about the maple syrup dipping.

Blueberry syrup was developed for this occasion. I scooped half a cup of blueberries out of the freezer, put them in the pyrex with the syrup and heated them both in the microwave. I wasn’t too convinced by the flavor but Lux thought it was the best thing ever.

    Waffles are my favorite. They’re the only way that I can reliably use up the sourdough starter that lies semi-ignored in my fridge, so every couple of weeks I have a couple people over and make a big batch. I always try to cut back on the sugar, but it never occurred to me to leave it out completely. Brilliant!

    I love the idea of waffles as a snack 🙂 I want waffles and/or pancakes daily. I will definitely try this recipe as I’m always looking for a tasty yet healthy version!

      You should probably get a waffle iron. Breadmaker…I don’t know how much easier they actually make things, given how much space they take up. I can’t tell you how many things I gave away after we got married that I regret. Like a huge gorgeous wooden salad bowl. I would been like sweetgreen employees tossing salad in that bowl. Sigh.

    Love this recipe! I had to use sour cream instead of yogurt but added a little buttermilk to thin the batter out. I think a waffle is best with half wheat flour in it!!
