I never knew until the morning I made these waffles that my boyfriend hates walnuts. What the? How have I been with this man for 2 years and not know something like this? Additionally, HOW CAN SOMEONE NOT LIKE WALNUTS? I think we either need to breakup or have an intervention – maybe both.
Well, or I can just get double the walnuts in everything from now on. That’s pretty much what I do with avocado since he’s allergic to it. Every possible opportunity I can to eat avocado I’ll eat it since I can’t do much with it at home.
In other news, I loved these waffles walnuts and all.

Part of my weekend breakfasts this week included waffles. For as much as I like to cook, I’m going to admit I have never made a waffle before these blueberry waffles. Matt gave me this old waffle maker last year that he found when moving. It has sat in my kitchen supply cabinet since then. It actually even survived a move from my apartment to this house. But I’ve still left it sitting in the kitchen supply cabinet, along with the equipment I actually use on a normal basis (my rice cooker, slow cooker, blender, etc.)
I had a bunch of leftover blueberries this week, so I was trying to use them all so I wouldn’t have to throw them away. Unfortunately I think I used way too many blueberries in this recipe and probably should have cut it in half. I used 1 cup of berries, which was clearly too many and caused some burning on part of the blueberries in the waffle maker. Whoops! This was definitely a learning experience, that’s for sure.
There were two things I learned from this experience:
Lesson One: Don’t put too many berries in your waffle mix.
Lesson Two: Make lots of waffles!
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 1/2 tbsp sugar
1/3 cup blueberry yogurt
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp milk
2 tbsp water
2 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1. Preheat your waffle maker.
2. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl mix the wet ingredients. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients, mixing with a wooden spoon. Make sure to stir enough to get rid of any dry clumps.
3. Fold the blueberries into the waffle batter.
4. Spray your waffle maker with cooking spray. Pour 1/2 cup of waffle batter into your waffle maker. Cook for 5-7 minutes, or as long as your waffle maker takes to cook a waffle.
