Blueberry Yogurt Protein Waffles

These waffles are packed with protein; yet taste fabulous!

Juicy blueberries, tangy yogurt, oats and more – be prepared to make a double batch.

Chances are in the span of your lifetime you’ve tried a LOT of waffles! Whether the frozen variety or homemade from the local cafĂ©, they are a hearty breakfast staple. They can be topped with anything and made any which way!


Today, I’ve amped up the protein and made a new and fun waffle recipe using AE Dairy whole milk yogurt and a few other side kicks (oats, eggs, protein powder, maple syrup to name a few….) and they turned out amazing!


Not a soul in my house realized they were “protein” waffles, nor that I did not use a sprinkle of flour. Keep this recipe a secret or tell the world! Either way they are delicious.

In my continuing partnership with AE Dairy, this month we wanted to feature their whole milk yogurt – they’ve been making it since the 1950’s, using fresh, local milk just hours from their dairy. This helps lock in the flavor, plus preserve nutrients and probiotics. They leave out all the junk (preservatives, high fructose corn syrup, etc.) and keep all the good stuff.


Their whole milk variety I’m using today has a bit more protein and a little less sugar – which is perfect for these waffles!

What I absolutely adore about this recipe is that ALL ingredients are dumped into a blender and simply blitzed until smooth. Totally serious! There is no whipping and folding in the egg whites, nor keeping the wet ingredients separate from the dry ingredients – it’s a simple dump, mix and go kind of breakfast.


The added blueberries were my idea – who doesn’t love fresh blueberries? I prefer the wild, frozen variety (they are a bit smaller in nature), but feel free to use any variety you have on hand. Their added tart bite make these waffles perfect.

If your kids are like mine, they LOVE something sweet for breakfast – and while every now and then it is okay – I’d prefer them to have a bit more protein and a little less sugar right upon waking. And these waffles fit the bill.


Made with no flour (just oats) and protein packed ingredients like eggs, yogurt and vanilla protein powder, with a just a tad of sweetness from the maple syrup and fresh blueberries – not a soul would suspect these are a “healthier” version.


Each waffle contains 6 grams of protein, just 98 calories, 9 carbs and 4 grams of fat. Talk about an amped up waffles!
