Just make a simple batter using basic pantry ingredients. Then, ladle it into a preheated waffle iron, and boom, breakfast is served.

Thanks to this simple recipe, every day can be blueberry waffle day!

Blueberry Waffle-Ingredients: Blueberries, Baking Powder, Eggs, Sugar, Flour, Salt, Milk, Melted Butter and Vanilla Extract


You’ll need the following ingredients:

  • Blueberries – It doesn’t matter if they’re fresh or frozen. The only difference is that frozen blueberries will bleed a little bit into the batter. If using frozen, no need to thaw beforehand.
  • Baking Powder – The leavening agent that’ll help make the batter rise.
  • Eggs, separated  – The egg yolks add richness, while the egg whites increase lift.
  • Sugar – Just a little bit, to sweeten the batter.
  • Flour – It’s all about the base! Traditional all-purpose flour works here.
  • Salt – To bring out even more of the blueberries’ sweetness.
  • Milk – It’ll moisten the dry ingredients and enrich the waffles.
  • Melted butter – The magic ingredient! It has the power to make anything it touches wonderfully rich!
  • Vanilla Extract – The ultimate baked good flavor enhancer.

How to Make Blueberry Waffles 

1. Preheat the waffle iron.

 This recipe is pretty foolproof. The only possible mistake you can make is to cook the waffles in a cold (or not hot enough) waffle iron.

To make them crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside, be sure to cook the waffles in a properly preheated waffle iron.

2. Beat the egg whites.

Separate the eggs and beat the egg whites until they’re stiff. This is the key to making the waffles extra tall and fluffy!

3. Combine the batter ingredients.

Whisk together your sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt.

Make a hole in the middle and gradually whisk in the milk, egg yolks, melted butter, and vanilla.

4. Fold in the blueberries and egg whites.

Folding means mixing a light ingredient very carefully into a denser mixture to keep it from deflating.

Fold in the blueberries first, followed by the egg whites.

5. Cook the waffles.

Slowly ladle the batter into the preheated waffle iron. This will ensure the holes are filled in perfectly.

Let the batter set in the iron for a bit before closing the lid. This’ll keep the batter from oozing

Cook the waffle according to your waffle iron’s manual instructions.

Repeat to cook the remaining batter.

6. Serve and enjoy!

Garnish them with your favorite waffle toppings and enjoy!


Want some of my favorite blueberry waffle-making tips? You’ve got ’em:

  • Let the batter rest. If time permits, give the batter 5 to 10 minutes to rest before adding the blueberries. This will allow the gluten to relax and absorb the liquid ingredients, thickening the batter. Rest it again before cooking.
  • Preheat the waffle iron. Never add waffle batter to a cold waffle iron. It should already be hot before you pour the first cup.
  • Liberally grease the waffle iron. As blueberries heat up, they get sticky. If your waffle iron isn’t properly greased, it’ll cause the waffles to stick.
  • Tips for using frozen berries. Add frozen blueberries immediately before cooking, a small amount at a time. Frozen berries are bad to clump. Adding them a few at a time will help prevent that. Also, use a spatula to spread them out after pouring the batter on the iron.
  • Keep the cooked waffles warm. Obviously, you can’t cook a whole stack of waffles at once. To keep the earlier waffles warm, store them in an oven set at 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove them when all the waffles are done.
  • Tips for clean-up. Blueberry waffle batter is messy. Wipe your waffle iron down with a damp rag while it’s still warm to make clean-up easier.

Toppings and Variations

While these waffles are perfectly fine on their own, let’s be honest, waffles aren’t as much fun to eat without the toppings.


Here are some awesome ideas that pair really well with these blueberry waffles:

  • Whipped cream and maple syrup or caramel – Nothing beats the classic!
  • Powdered sugar – Simple, elegant, delicious.
  • Vanilla ice cream – Dessert for breakfast is always a fun idea!


There are tons of ways you can make these waffles at home. Raid your pantry or fridge and see if you could add these ingredients to the batter.

  • Cinnamon – For a little bit of warmth. Perfect for the chilly fall weather.
  • Lemon juice and/or zest – For a bright and zesty pop of flavor.
  • Double the sugar – To satisfy your sweet tooth.
  • Strawberries – A simple swap that’ll make a huge difference. 
  • Chocolate or butterscotch chips – Together with the blueberries, they make a great balance of fresh and decadent. 

Can You Freeze Blueberry Waffles?

Absolutely. Blueberry waffles are freezer-friendly, so go ahead and double or triple the batch!

Here’s how.

1. Let the waffles cool completely on a wire rack.

2. Stack them up in a freezer-safe container, with a sheet of parchment paper in between to keep them from sticking. Label the bag accordingly and freeze. 

Blueberry waffles will keep well for up to 3 months.

To Reheat

Reheat frozen waffles in the toaster oven on low heat, about twice or thrice.

This will allow them to warm all the way through, without burning the outside. 

Or, if you want to reheat several waffles at a time, do so in a 350-degree Fahrenheit oven for about 10 minutes.

If you’re in a rush, you can always pop the waffles in the microwave. They won’t be crispy, but the flavors will still be there. 

Microwave frozen blueberry waffles for 30-60 seconds on high, or until warmed through.
