Ok, ok, ok... I know I said the waffle theme was over, however - I decided to do waffle wednesday, since it's a fun collection of recipes and who knows one day I might publish with full waffle diet cookbook - how to shed weight by eating waffles. Title in the making, I am open to suggestions - comment on my instagram.
When I was a kid I would beg my mom to buy the aunt jemima blueberry pancake mix at the american/british store in Copenhagen. I know, American and British store... it's not like those two nations have a lot of dietary habits in common, however in Denmark - it's the same language and so the same shop.
Now, where was I, oh... yes the pancake mix. I remember that it came in a box with a foil bag of powder and a little tin of canned blueberries to mix into the batter. I thought it was sooooo exotic and everything that was American or English was very exciting and appealing and I just wanted to have it all and move there and be all English or American... mostly English, since my dad was from there. Anyway For some reason I thought of those pancakes the other day and thought - I'm gonna waffle that recipe up. And so I have done that.
Please enjoy my childhood favorite.
Blueberry waffles with cardamom and lemon
makes 5-6 waffles.
150 g oats
1 tbsp. olive oil
100 ml. plant based milk (I used oat - you can use dairy)
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp cardamom
1 lemon ( finely grated zest only)
50 g frozen blue berries (1/3 cup)
1/4 tsp salt
200 ml Greek yoghurt
1/2 tsp Vanilla paste/powder/essence

Fresh blueberries as many as you like.

honey/maple syrup to sweeten
How to make blueberry waffles.
Blend the oats, then add the rest of the ingredients EXCEPT for the blueberries.
Now you need to decide if you want blue looking waffles or not. If you do want blue looking waffles go to step 1b if not skip to step 2.
Blend half the blueberries in the batter, coloring it blue and purple-ish.
Pour the batter into a bowl and mix the blueberries in with a spoon.
Turn on waffle iron, I set it on 4-5 spray with a tiny bit of oil. Pour 1 ladle the middle of the waffle iron, close it up and cook for about 3-4 minutes.
Repeat step 2. four to five more times.
Combine yoghurt, vanilla and lemon zest and season to taste with lemon juice and maple syrup.
Serve the warm waffles filled with lemon-vanilla yoghurt, and and top with blue berries (or whatever you like)
