Greek Yogurt Waffles add some protein and greek yogurt goodness to your morning waffle routine. Give your waffles a healthy touch with this easy breakfast recipe. 

Greek Yogurt Waffle topped with syrup and a pad of butter on a white plate.

Do you guys ever have breakfast for dinner? Because we have breakfast for dinner all the time. I like to keep things interesting and I’m always switching things up. This recipe is the product of my kitchen experimentation. Back in 2013 I decided to do something a little different by making waffles. And thus my greek yogurt waffles were born. It makes me feel better when I lather my waffle with syrup to know that there is a redeeming quality in there somewhere.

I already know what one of your questions will be. And, yes, you can make these with whole wheat flour. They won’t be as fluffy, but it definitely works. It’s a good way to get your whole grains in.

Now I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that I have the most amazing syrup recipe your tastebuds have ever experienced. I call it Liquid Cinnamon Roll Syrup and it is unbelievably delicious. My family can’t get enough of it and we prefer it over any other syrup you could possibly offer us. It is unreal. And dangerous, very dangerous. Syrup will never be the same for you ever again should you choose to try it. Serve it up alongside some candied bacon and I may be banging down your door for a place at your table.

Wonder how you can enjoy this goodness every morning without any hassle? This batter can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for about a week, making breakfast a snap! Just stir a bit before using.

These are great! I substituted 1/2 cup protein powder for 1/2 cup flour and almond milk for the milk and Splenda for the honey. Kids never knew the difference and they have only 139 calories each, plus 9g of protein. Loved them, thanks so much for the recipe.

Loved these waffles. They had a nice crisp shell and fluffy inside. I was looking for a high protein recipe so I adapted based on the other reviews. My adaption was to change the ratio of yogurt to milk (for extra protein). I used 1 cup Greek yogurt and 1 1/4 cup milk. I subbed 1/2 cup of flour for 1/2 cup vanilla protein powder. I also added 1 tsp vanilla and 2 tsp cinnamon. At the end I folded in 1 whipped egg white. The waffles were really good but could use more sweetness for my personal taste because… Read more »

I’ve made these twice now. The second time I added 2T of granulated sugar to the dry ingredients and 2T of veg oil to the wet ingredients along with the changes I posted above. These are now my new favourite waffle (and I really loved the last recipe I’ve been using for the last 20 years!)

Can I use oatflour instead of all-purpose flour?

Great waffles! I added two scoops of vanilla protein powder for an extra burst of protein and topped it with a drizzle of honey and fresh blueberries. Love this healthier twist on waffles, will definitely be making these again in the future!

Made these twice now & they turned out very nice! I used vanilla greek yogurt which I think helped the flavour a little. Thank you for the recipe!

Really great consistency!! It is crispy which I love. I would add more sweetener. I used oat flour instead and it tasted great!!

Excellent recipe and my new favorite. Not too sweet, which is perfect. On the last waffle I sprinkled sharp cheddar on top of batter and the end result was glorious.

These are so delicious!! And so easy to make! I love that it has yogurt inside, as it adds extra nutrition. This is a keeper for sure. We used one cup of whole wheat flour, and one cup of white flour.

Really liked this – we always have greek yogurt in the house, so it’s easy to put together. Tender and crisp.

Tried these this morning using homemade (Instant Pot) yogurt and replaced half the white flour with whole wheat. I love all the protein in them – great start to the day. Added a touch of cinnamon and a splash of vanilla (which I always do to pancakes, French toast, and waffles). Wonderful texture, great flavor. Everyone loved them and I’ll be making again. Thanks for a great recipe.

My kids love these, and I love how easy they are to make with ingredients I always have on hand.
They are super fluffy and much healthier than the typical butter heavy recipes.

Fantastic basic recipe!
I’ve made it strait, and then also varied a bunch of things, from the milk to a vanilla protein shak, orange pineapple juice, dehydrated fruits, different flours.
Really wonderful fluffy better than premade mixes. I think it’s the yogurt, but I’m not entirely sure. Wonderful. Thank you. Haven’t tried the syrup recipe. You’re description properly scared me. ;¶

These were great! Followed the recipe but added some vanilla at the end and put chocolate chips in some of them. Will definitely make these again. Love that they have some protein and use honey instead of sugar.

What percentage of milk do you use? Or does it matter? I drink 1% and don’t like to buy something I’m not going to use
