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?

    1. Wow those look awesome Susan! And I know it’s Wednesday without actually thinking about it…when I see your waffle posts come up :)

    2. The Teenage Taste

      Susan, you are the Waffle Queen! Thanks for sharing your top secret recipe! That syrup looks delicious! :]

    3. Hey Susan! I just wanted to stop over to say hello and finally meet you! :) It looks like we are going to be rooming together at the HLS this August. I can’t wait and I can’t wait to meet you. Hope we can stay in touch. Have a great day girl!

    4. Wow those look awesome. I have always wanted to make my own toppings like that. I agree with Averie, I seriously look forward to your waffle Wednesday posts every week. :)

    5. I think I need to pick up some buttermilk. I’ve never had it since I was a kid and reached in the fridge and drank it straight from the carton, thinking it was regular milk. LOL

      But these sound fantastic:)

      • My step-sister did that the other day!!! Hahahaha.

        P.S. I’ll be seeing you in Philly! More hang-outs required this year I think. I promise not to be inebriated this time ;)

    6. I’ve never used buttermilk at home before but I have a hankering for these waffles. They look DELICIOUS with the blueberries. Plus I love things I can make in bulk and freeze for later. The toaster trick for reheating is perfect!

    7. Ooooooooooo they look goooooooood! x x

    8. I love the look of the blueberries on that plump waffle! I need to make a batch and freeze (really, I NEED to stop saying “I need to make a batch” and just do it, finally!).

    9. I love that you basically make your own (much healthier and tastier) toaster Eggo’s. Such genius, you have. :) These look great!

    10. Oh, to have a waffle maker…
