I love waffles! I have loved them since I was little, and probably because they were a special breakfast growing up. We only had them once in a while, usually on weekends, and I waited for the days we were allowed to eat them so I could fill every single hole with maple syrup. It’s probably part of why my mom didn’t let me have them all the time, haha.
I still love making waffles and I actually still treat them like it’s a special occasion. Even though, I can make them anytime I want! But, the process of making waffles does take a little more time than French toast, so I make waffles when I have more time. We used to have Delaney’s grandpa’s waffle iron, that thing was vintage. But, it would leak grease every time we used it haha. So, I bought a new one when we moved into the new house and I love it! I’ve linked it here.
Waffles are also a wonderful hangover breakfast. All the delicious carbs, protein, and syrup will soak up all that alcohol you had yesterday at your Forth of July barbecues and parties. So, if you’re hurting today and most likely home chilling – take the time to make this amazing Blueberry Waffle recipe, you won’t be disappointed.
I used fresh blueberries and a little bit of cinnamon in these homemade waffles and they are so good! I topped mine with more blueberries and of course maple syrup. They would also be delicious with butter, and I can say that these homemade Blueberry Waffles are so good I’ve even eaten them plain, hot out of the waffle iron!

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.

Measure 1 cup of batter into the waffle iron (if you have a smaller iron, you’ll have to do less). Cook until golden brown, about 2 to 4 minutes, depending on your waffle iron.
- Serve immediately and store extra waffles in the fridge for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.
