Better-for-you Overnight Blackberry Yeast Waffles with blackberry syrup – breakfast has never looked so good! Five minutes of work the night before delivers the most amazingly delicious waffles the next morning!
Waffles are a staple in our house. We typically enjoy them loaded with butter and real maple syrup and pair it with perfectly baked bacon. Breakfast bliss I tell ya.
When I’m feeling like changing up my game a little bit, I like to make yeast waffles. On a lazy Sunday morning, nothing beats these perfectly pillowy waffles that just melt in your mouth.
And on a busy Thursday morning, nothing beats overnight blackberry yeast waffles…..with blackberry syrup. Yup. You can have the awesome flavor of a yeast waffle in just a few minutes when you put in the five minutes of work the night before. Awesome, right?
I’m sharing my easy blackberry syrup recipe too! It is SO good but if you don’t have the time or the berries…maple syrup is the way to go!
Yeast waffles are nothing more than regular waffles with a little bit of yeast thrown in there for extra oomph and flavor. Instead of using baking powder as the leavening agent, yeast does the work.
Because of the addition of yeast, you, of course, have to deal with the wait time, about an hour, before the batter can be used. If you have the time – great! If not, the great thing about this recipe is that the waffle batter can be made the night before and the yeast can do it’s work overnight. You choose!
These waffles are better-for-you, made with whole wheat flour and Almond Breeze Almondmilk. I used Almond Breeze Original Almondmilk Coconutmilk blend and it was fab.u.lous. Straight almondmilk or any blended almondmilk will work for this recipe. I use whatever I have in the pantry and pat myself on the back for keeping a couple cartons of shelf stable Almond Breeze on hand at all times.
I try to “Serve Up My Best” everyday and so does Team USA Volleyball! Because I think a great breakfast helps us all to “rise” to the occasion…see what I did there…I thought these waffles were the perfect recipe to share in honor of Almond Breeze’s official sponsorship of Team USA Volleyball. I only wish I could be there to serve the whole team these delicious Overnight Blackberry Yeast Waffles!
