Lemon-Ricotta Cornmeal Waffles

Rating: Unrated
Slightly dense waffles with a hint of lemon flavor and ricotta cheese for richness. If you like corn muffins, I think you will like these. Pairs well with fresh berries.

Gluten-Free Overnight Yeasted Waffles

Rating: Unrated
Gluten-free waffles with a delicate yeast flavor get a crispy and crunchy outside, but are melt-in-your-mouth soft on the inside. They freeze quite well, too. These waffles work with sweet or savory toppings.

Light and Fluffy Vegan Waffles

Rating: Unrated
Simple, vegan waffle recipe for a lazy weekend morning. Cooked waffles store well in the fridge or frozen and reheat in the toaster, if allowed to cool fully and kept separated between sheets of parchment paper.

Keto Waffles

Waffles made with almond meal, heavy cream, and ghee will satisfy your craving for your breakfast favorite while meeting your keto diet requirements.

Buttermilk Prairie Waffles

Rating: Unrated
This recipe has been in the family for generations. Now I want to share what is the best memory of my childhood, when I visited my grandparents in Kelvington, Saskatchewan: waking up to freshly made waffles with Canadian maple syrup and crisp bacon.

Puff Pastry Waffles

Rating: Unrated
Add puff pastry to the list of good things you can snackify in your waffle iron. Although they don't puff up as much as oven-baked puff pastry, they turn out crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, and they take only minutes to make. Serve hot or at room temperature with syrup, fruit, Nutella®, fruit preserves, or nut butter.

Chaffles with Almond Flour

Rating: Unrated
Chaffles are an overnight sensation in the low carb/keto world. Adding almond flour gives them a more traditional waffle texture and helps get rid of any eggy taste. Seriously, try them, they're delicious! I use an inexpensive mini waffle maker (such as Dash® Mini Maker Waffle) which produces perfect 4-inch chaffles. So many ways to use chaffles, the sky's the limit!

Tender and Easy Buttermilk Waffles

Rating: Unrated
An easy waffle recipe that results in a nice crisp outside, and tender middle waffle. I love the results this gives while not having to separate the eggs and take time to whip egg whites! These will also reheat in the toaster for a quick work day breakfast.

Liege Belgian Waffles with Pearl Sugar

Rating: Unrated
These are sweeter than traditional Brussels Belgian waffles - a sweeter waffle that can be served for breakfast or dessert. Serve waffles warm or cooled with whipped cream and berries or drizzled with warm, melted chocolate.

Cinnamon Roll Waffles

Rating: Unrated
A waffle that taste like a cinnamon roll. Serve with bacon along side to help contrast the sweetness.
