Hey there and Happy Saturday!

For those of you who actually read this blog or come here to party on a regular basis (bless your hearts) you may have noticed that about a month or so ago the post frequency dramatically decreased. Where I used to post 7 days a week like a crazy lady – it’s just who I am – lately I’ve been posting about 3 times a week.

Worry not! This blog is not going anywhere. Me and my incessant cooking and recipe sharing are here to stay.

(Phew – I know you’re relieved…)

So why the sudden decrease in recipe posting here on Creme de la Crumb??

School.

Nasty dreaded drudgery school.

You might remember that I’ve been going to school full time during the life of this here blog and CDLC has kept me sane. It has also kept me insane. Just sayin’. But the really wonderful, totally amazing, can hardly believe it news is that I am graduating. At the end of April I will be a free woman.

I’ve been drowning in the overwhelming work load of a senior thesis capstone project. AKA: research torture. That’s why I’ve been a bit less than totally present the past little while – but I assure you, I’m still here. Treading water, but here. Cooking, eating, homeworking, cooking eating homeworking = my life right now. But very soon it will be a thing of the past and you shall have my full attention once again.

As long as I pass my oral defense in exactly one month’s time…

Wish me luck y’all!

Oh and greek yogurt waffles!!!  EAT THEM. 🙂

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt (I used 0% fat)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar or maple syrup
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat your waffle maker. In a medium bowl whisk together eggs, milk, greek yogurt, and sugar (or maple syrup).

  2. Add flour, baking powder, and salt and mix until all ingredients are combined. (Most of the lumps should be gone but it doesn't need to be perfectly smooth).

  3. Grease the waffle maker and cook waffles according to manufacturer's instructions. Serve with butter, syrup, fresh berries, whipped cream, or powdered sugar as desired.

Congratulations, Tiffany and good luck with your thesis. Having graduated from a 5 year BFA program (of course it took me 6) last May, I totally feel your joy and your pain. Your blog is delightful, love the recipes, and actually enjoy a 3 day blog as opposed to 7 (I tend to let them accumulate a bit longer than is good for any self respecting person).

There is light at the end of the tunnel.

    Ah DeB thank you so much – I’ll take all of the well-wishes and good luck I can get! Congratulations on your BFA that’s amazing! It’s such a sense of relief to accomplish great things like that, look back and say wow – I totally did that!! 🙂

Looks Good!

What a wonderful breakfast that looks like! Nothing like crispy waffles in the morning 🙂 Love how healthy these are too.

Good luck! … and yum!!

These waffles look amazing and I bet the greek yogurt keeps them so moist and delicious!! Can’t wait to try these.

These waffles look incredible! Love how healthy they are!

Can’t wait to try these! What program are you taking?

These waffles look amazing Tiffany! You photos are always so beautiful!

    Thank you so much Kelley! I just try to show off how amazing the food really tastes!! 🙂

AHH! Congratulations on your graduation! That’s awesome! So nice to look back o n all you’ve accomplished and know that you’re not going to have anymore essays for a while, haha.

These waffles look perfectly fluffy and totally delish. Are you using strawberry syrup on them? YUM.

    It’s so true, my thesis has a support paper and it’s already up to 23 pages! Can’t tell you how much I won’t miss that 😉 And yes, I drizzled strawberry syrup like crazy on these waffles – I used Smuckers brand, it’s my favorite when I’m too lazy to make homemade!

Tqvm 4 yr lovely, easy & delicious breakfast recipes. I truly love anythg with greek yogurt.

Thank you for this waffle recipe. It really looks appetizing. As-a-matter-of-fact many of your recipes look delicious and worth trying.

Btw congrats on graduating!

Hey,
Can I use 2 cups of oatmeal instead of the 2 cups flour ? I wanna make these waffles for breakfast asap ! 😀

    Hi, The oatmeal would definitely change the texture of the waffles, they may still come out yummy though! I would recommend tossing the oatmeal in a food processor first to make it into a powder, that might help get a more similar texture to using flour.

Hi Tiffany, I was wondering if you had the nutrional information for this recipe? Looks great, cannot wait to try it!!

Hi! I put all the ingredients into my fitness pal if you’re interested. Came out to about 211 calories per serving. I was able to get 6 waffles out of this recipe.

    How many waffles are in a serving? I came here to hunt down nutrition facts! 🙂

They look delicious! Would it work if baked in the oven? I just have one of those silicon waffle molds but I really want to try a yogurt recipe…

These are by far the best waffles I have ever eaten or made. They really cooked beautifully ! I topped mine with 1tsp raw honey with a side of nonfat greek plain yogurt and fruit! The bonus is my son loved them too! 🙂

Just tried these out…loved them! Stayed soft and had plenty of moisture from the yogurt, which also added a nice tangy flavor. Will definitely make these again!

    UPDATE:

    I’ve actually experimented with using pumpkin in place of Greek Yogurt and Brown sugar instead of white, as well as adding some pumpkin spices. Turns out great! Just use the equivalent volume of everything and they turn out great!

OMG!! Thank you for the recipe!! I love making a big batch of waffle and freeze it so I can eat it anytime I want but thinking about 1 cup of oil that I put inside the batter make me uneasy (that’s a lot of oil!!!). I tried to substitute it with coconut oil but I don’t know why it made the waffle couldn’t rise. So I can say your recipe is a saviour!! Greek yogurt?! Couldn’t be more healthier! This is a good way to force my husband to eat yogurt! Haha

Anyway I found out that it took me almost 10 mins on the pan to make it crispy in the outside. Usually I only take about 5 mins with usual batter. But it worth the wait!

Great start Tom the recipe, but you forgot to add something to keep it from sticking! I like to add in some coconut oil…about 1/4 cup. But vegetable oil or melted butter will work too!

These are my go to waffles now. I add a little melted butter and vanilla to the batter and they are delicious every time.

These are amazing. Crispy outside, fluffy inside. My 17-month-old loves them! Planning to make a double batch this weekend so we have lots in the freezer. These freeze well and heat up perfect in the toaster.

    I freeze them for my twin toddlers as well! Not much older than your kiddos! Glad that you all love them!

Made this just now and we had to throw the waffles as they came out bitter. This was due to the excessive amount of baking powder (which I should’ve realized before my husband copied exactly what is on the recipe). For anyone making this, please try and reduce the baking powder and I’m sure this will come out tasty. if you think I’m wrong, please let me know. I welcome any suggestions.

    Hi April- sorry you didn’t have great success with this recipe. I hope you find another here that you love!
