The first time I tested this recipe, my littlest one proclaimed that this is what she is going to pick to have as her birthday breakfast. Yes, these vegan gluten free lemon blueberry waffles are THAT good. And that was after testing the recipe for the first time!
They were delicious that first time I made them, but to me, they weren’t “perfect.” So I made a few slight changes and ended up re-testing two more times before I was happy. They are now the most requested waffles around here and are still what the little one is planning to request for her birthday breakfast!
Lemons and blueberries make such a great combo, especially in waffles. The lemon adds a nice lemony, mouth-watering flavour, while the blueberries add little bursts of blueberry sweetness. It’s also a very “spring-like” combo, don’t you think?
As I write this, it’s currently February and blueberries are so not in season where I live. This is my way of bringing a little spring into dreary February. Spring- and/or summer-like things are always welcome here. I’ve already gone there with my berry filled banana berry granola yogurt parfait! When I see fresh berries, it’s hard to resist. I love them!
As you can see in my pics, I was able to find some fresh berries to use as garnish, but in the waffles, I use frozen, wild blueberries. I recommend using those in this recipe because they’re smaller than fresh, regular berries so you can fit more into the waffle. I also like using them because they’re less juicy and they’ll make less of a mess in your waffle maker. Keep in mind though, that no matter what type of blueberries you use, you will get some blueberry stickiness to clean up after you make them. The waffle maker I use (and love!) is teflon-free, non-stick, so that makes cleanup a little easier, but if you can’t find frozen wild blueberries, try to use smaller fresh blueberries rather than the larger ones.
If you’ve been following along for a while or if you’ve done any poking around on my website, you’ll know that I love coming up with breakfast recipes and different waffle recipes. This is the actually the fifth waffle recipe on this site (you can see all the others here). And there is more to come, I just have to space them out a bit, I don’t think it would be a great idea to give you a bunch of waffle recipes in a row. But they’re coming, so look out for them! In the meantime, enjoy your vegan gluten free lemon blueberry waffles!
