Blueberry Lemon Waffles

Blueberry Lemon Waffles might be my favorite “pick-me-up”during the week. They are full of flavor, crispy, and light. The lemon zest really brings out the flavor and makes my breakfast or brunch go from ordinary to extraordinary.

This blog post is sponsored by Horizon Organic Milk. One thing you need for extra fluffy waffles is high quality milk. I always buy the Horizon® Organic Milk Containers. They are shelf stable and come in single serve 8oz cartons so I can keep them in the pantry vs buying a big carton. Horizon Organic is the always my go to dairy milk because it’s organically produced and the cows are responsibly raised and cared for. You can find all of their products at Sprouts Farmers Market

If you are interested in other ways I use Horizon Organic products you can check out my Jalapeño Mac and Cheese It might be the creamiest recipe on my blog!

Blueberry Lemon Waffles are always a fun way to change up breakfast flavors. Lemons are in season this time of year. Grab your waffle maker and let’s make something fun for breakfast! I prefer this waffle maker if you are looking for a good one.

    Hi! I didn’t see the amount of blueberries and lemon zest needed in the mix. Would you be able to give me a measurement to add? These look so good. Thank you!

      Hi Barbara!
      I am so sorry I missed the blueberries! I have updated the recipe. I recommend 1 cup of blueberries but keep 2 – 3 tbs to the side for garnish on the waffle once it’s cooked.Lemon zest is 1 tsp in the mix and 1/2 zest on the side for garnish on the waffles.
