Lemon Almond Blueberry Waffles with Honey Lemon Syrup

These waffles fit the craving of the beginning of Spring while we enjoying a unseasonable mild Winter.


They are fresh, fun and oh so good! From scratch and proof is in the taste. They are light and fluffy due to the incorporated egg whites. Well worth the little bit of extra time as the yield is high and the results are mouth watering. It’s waffles and who can resist?

I have followed the basis recipe and incorporated frozen blueberries to make them oh so sweet. Warmed blueberries are great. I prefer to use frozen as they tend to hold their shape and do not require any thawing time prior to folding them in the batter.

The lemon syrup is a nice touch and if you add a dab of goat cheese to cut through the sweetness it will bring things to a whole new level. So enjoy this breakfast jewel of a treat!

Great for a crowd on the weekend or for leftovers on a normally dismal Monday morning.
