You may have noticed a couple of waffle recipes appearing here on the blog over the years, but 9 times out of 10 that I’m making waffles, I’m making this recipe from Melissa Clark at NYT Cooking. This waffle recipe always results in the best waffles – light, fluffy, but substantial waffles that can hold up to any toppings you throw on them – anything from jam to maple syrup goes. These waffles are not overly sweet and feel balanced with protein considering that they are loaded with eggs, milk, and yogurt. Perfect for a special weekend brunch at home, or meal prep for the week to have waffles on hand for quickly re-toasting on a weekday.
I usually make this recipe as is (because it’s perfect), but sometimes I get creative and swap some things out or add in some extra nuts and seeds. I tend to swap out one cup of AP flour with whole wheat flour for a little extra nuttiness and added whole grains. Last weekend I also added about a quarter of a cup of flax seeds to my mix, and I’ve been known to add some roughly chopped nuts or oats as well for a little extra bulk. Feel free to get creative with flours or other add-ins to make these waffles your own!

Happy brunching, friends!
