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!
Lemons and Blueberries Make Such a Great Combo…
…especially in lemon 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 definitely 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, don’t you?
The Best Kind of Blueberries to Use for Lemon Blueberry Waffles
I recommend using frozen, wild blueberries in this fluffy vegan waffle 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.

How to Make Vegan Gluten Free Lemon Blueberry Waffles
Vegan Gluten Free Lemon Blueberry Waffles
- 1 1/4 cups unsweetened non-dairy milk
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
- 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 cups gluten free flour blend (I use Bob's Red Mill brand, see note below)
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon lemon zest
- 1/2 cup frozen wild blueberries (see note below)
- fresh blueberries, for garnish (optional)
- coconut whip, for garnish (optional)
- Turn oven on to "warm" setting or to 200°F to keep your finished waffles warm and crispy (click here for more info on keeping waffles crispy).
- Turn on waffle maker to desired temperature setting. Setting will vary depending on your waffle maker and how you prefer your waffles.
- Whisk almond milk, coconut oil, vanilla, ground flax seeds, maple syrup, and lemon juice together in a medium-sized bowl, whisking enough to incorporate the flax seeds. Let sit for 5-minutes.
- Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and lemon zest together in a large bowl.
- Slowly add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix well until all ingredients are incorporated.
- Ladle enough waffle mixture into your waffle maker so the bottom of the waffle maker is filled. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon (per waffle) of the frozen berries on top of the batter. Close waffle maker and cook according to your maker's directions.
- This recipe makes 4 standard sized round waffles.
- It's important to know that different gluten-free flour blends use different ingredients and ratios, so results will always vary if you substitute. I have never used any other brand of flour to make this recipe (other than Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour with the red label, not the blue label!), so please know that your results may not be the same as mine if ingredients are substituted.
- This recipe will NOT work with coconut flour.
- These waffles freeze very well. Simply cool the waffles after they have been made, cut into quarters, and freeze. When ready, heat in your toaster, oven, or toaster oven.
- I recommend using frozen wild blueberries in this recipe. Frozen because they are less juicy and will make less of a mess in your waffle maker. Wild blueberries because they are smaller than fresh, regular berries. If you can't find frozen wild blueberries, try to use smaller fresh blueberries rather than the larger ones.
