The Best Buttermilk Waffles

I am about to share with you my favourite waffle recipe to date.


Like many great recipes, it started with buttermilk. I almost always have buttermilk in the fridge. A love of waffles, biscuits, and quick breads will do that to you.

I groggily rolled over Saturday morning, reached for my new iPhone, and opened one of my favourite apps.


I typed “Buttermilk Waffles” into the Epicurious app and began reading through the recipes that came up.

I ended up basing these waffles off these Belgian Buttermilk Waffles with Glazed Bananas because they were so highly rated with so many reviews. 

But you know me, I had to make my own changes!


Here’s what I used:

  • 1 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unflavoured soy protein powder (as a flour replacement)
  • 2 packets stevia powder  
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup buttermilk (it’s all that was left)
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil



    I skipped the glazed bananas for my own topping.


    • 1/2 tbsp almond butter
    • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
    • 3 tbsp sugar-free syrup
    • cinnamon


    All whisked up and poured over top with blueberries. 


    The end result was phenomenal. Mind you, these are not my usual lower-calorie waffles. But it seems the best tasting things usually aren’t ;)

    The recipe made four waffles, which meant I had three leftover for weekday breakfasts!


    All my life I have dreamed of having a four-toast toaster. Now I have one and can put it to use with waffles. I like to divide my waffle up into quarters and pop them in there to reheat from frozen in the mornings.


    Now, my weekend waffle was a little on the decadent side. But for my weekday, I kept it simple with sugar-free syrup heated with some blueberries.


    Still ridiculously amazing after being frozen then toasted.

  • Best. Waffles. Ever.


    Not to mention, toasting them makes the kitchen smell like the weekend, even on a weekday. It puts me in a great mood to start off the day. A great breakfast will do that to you. Why do you think I love Waffle Wednesday so much?
