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 mix also makes pancakes!

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. If you want to make pancakes, simply follow the instructions but use a well oiled pan and about 1/4 cup size of batter for each pancake.

Blueberry Lemon Waffles

Blueberry Lemon Waffles might be my favorite "pick-me-up" during the week. They are full of flavor, crispy, and light. 
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 7 minutes
Servings: 4


  • cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp white granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon zest + ½ tsp for garnish
  • ½ tsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup almond Milk, or dairy free alternative
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp olive or avocado oil
  • 1 cup blueberries + some for garnish


  • Preheat the waffle iron and make sure you oil it before putting batter in it
  • In a large bowl whisk together all the of above ingredients leaving some lemon zest and blueberries to the side for garnish
  • Fill waffle maker with appropriate amount (careful not to overfill!) and good until waffle maker says it's finished (around 5 minutes). Top waffles with more zest and blueberries in addition to syrup. 

To Make Pancakes

  • In a large bowl whisk together all the of above ingredients leaving some lemon zest and blueberries to the side for garnish. You can add 2 – 4 tbsp of water to the batter if it's too thick. It should be similar to all other pancake batter texture.
  • Heat a well oiled, non-stick pan to medium/high heat, I use olive oil or butter. Add about ¼ cup of the batter to the pan, try to let the pancake spread a little for easier even cook.
    you can also make the pancakes a little smaller for mini pancakes. Cook on medium heat for about 2-3 minutes on each side. You will want to carefully flip when you see little bubbles start to form on the top of the pancake. Enjoy!

  1. 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!

    1. 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.

    I saw these on TikTok and ended up doing the waffle version they were amazing. I’m curious if you think I could add chocolate chips and leave the lemon out next time?

  4. Made these for breakfast this morning they were dope. Thx
