Studded with fresh blueberries, these blueberry waffles are fresh, fruity, and delicious! They’re a great way to start the day.

Fresh blueberry waffles are tasty with traditional Buttermilk Syrup, but fresh Blueberry Sauce is also divine! Either way, you’ll love these fruity waffles.

We Love Fresh and Fruity!

Waffles are my hubby’s favorite breakfast. They are similar to pancakes, but a bit crispier, and those nooks and crannies?! How can you deny them?!

We love to add variety to our classic Buttermilk Waffles by changing the flavors, and adding fruit like blueberries makes them even more delicious.

Why we love these waffles:

  • Easy. This blueberry waffle recipe is just as simple as any waffle, just add fresh blueberries!
  • Packed with flavor. Just top these off with your favorite maple syrup or Buttermilk Syrup and enjoy!
  • Variations. Adding any other fresh seasonal fruit is a bonus!

These are such a yummy and easy breakfast idea, and we have a feeling the whole family will love them!

How to Make Blueberry Waffles

  1. WET INGREDIENTS. In a small bowl, add the butter, buttermilk, and heat in the microwave for one minute and thirty seconds, or until the butter is melted. Whisk in the vanilla and set aside.
    • In a large bowl, beat the eggs until fluffy. Add the buttermilk mixture and stir to combine.
  2. DRY INGREDIENTS. Add the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar, and mix until just combined (small lumps are okay). Let sit 5-10 minutes, then gently fold in the blueberries.
  3. COOK. While the batter is resting, preheat your waffle iron. Spray waffle maker with cooking spray (or butter), and add the batter and cook according to your waffle maker’s directions. (For my Belgian waffle maker, 1 cup of batter cooked for 4 minutes was perfect.)
  4. ENJOY! Serve warm with butter, syrup, Whipped Cream, blueberry sauce, and any more berries desired.

Recipe Tips

  • Batter. Don’t over-mix the batter, some lumps are normal. Allow the batter to sit for about 5 minutes before folding in the blueberries.
  • Waffle iron. Be sure to use a preheated waffle iron. Don’t overfill the waffle iron. Most waffle irons come with a light to indicate when the waffle is finished. It will also stop steaming. 
  • Add a bit of flavor to the batter by folding in some lemon zest along with the blueberries.
  • Don’t stack the cooked waffles on top of each other. The waffles underneath become soggy.

Waffle Storing Tips

  • To keep waffles warm. Preheat the oven to 200°F. As the waffles finish cooking, place them in a single layer on a baking sheet in the oven for about 30 minutes before drying out.
  • STORE. Place cooled leftover blueberry Belgian waffles in an airtight container and refrigerate for 3-4 days. 
  • FREEZE. Flash freeze by lining the waffles up in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Freeze for about 2 hours, or until solid. Transfer to a freezer bag. For best results use within 1-2 months.
  • To reheat. For crispy waffles, reheat them in a toaster or toaster oven for a crips waffle. For softer waffles simply use the microwave.
    • Reheat a large amount in the oven. Preheat the oven to 300°F, spread the waffles in a single layer on a baking sheet, and heat for 5-10 minutes or until hot.
