Greek Yogurt = Good Stuff.
Greek yogurt is such a great ingredient to bake with. I’ve used it a few times in recipes here on the blog (see bottom of post!) and we eat it quite regularly right out of the container as a snack.
It’s Filled with Good Things:
- B 12
Plus! You can also use it as a replacement for several different ingredients:
- Sour cream.
It’s not always an equal replacement, so, you can use this cheat sheet for reference. 👍
For now..let’s make waffles with our Greek yogurt! They are amazing and you won’t even miss the oil. 😉
Your Ingredients + Supplies List:
- Waffle iron + non stick cooking spray
- Mixing bowl.
- Plain Greek yogurt.
- Baking powder.
A couple of recipe notes:
- Gluten free flour will also work for this recipe. Simply replace the same amount as the regular all purpose flour.
- If you are looking to replace the refined sugar, use a tablespoon of honey instead.
- These waffles freeze great. Place the cooled waffles into a freezer safe storage bag and eat when you want them. You can heat them up in your toaster or microwave.
- Don’t over mix your batter. This will give you more dense waffles. Whisk the batter just until everything is combined.
- Don’t forget the syrup! The syrup pictured here is my Homemade Maple Flavored Syrup.
- The amount of waffles will depend on your waffle iron. My waffle iron makes approx 6 inch waffles and they are quite thick. This batter makes about 6-7 waffles with it.
