Whole Wheat Blueberry Waffles

When my husband and I were given a waffle iron for a wedding present, I was so excited! I can’t remember the last time I had waffles and couldn’t wait to make my own at home.

It took a little practice to get the hang of how much batter to use, but our waffle iron worked great! In just a few minutes we had perfect waffles to sit down and eat while we watched the snow fall outside. I used applesauce in this recipe instead of oil, and also made it dairy free by using earth balance in place of butter. I also used unsweetened vanilla almond milk.

We served ours topped with earth balance, maple syrup, and blueberries.

Maybe I’m weird, but I liked my blueberries semi frozen. I loved the contrast of hot waffle with slightly frozen blueberry, it’s the perfect bite! My husband thought I was weird and microwaved his so that they were like normal blueberries. Either way you like them, they’re a must have for this recipe!

Eating these waffles felt like I was indulging in a high calorie breakfast, but they’re so healthy. Try making these for a family breakfast, everyone will love them!
