You can use a waffle maker for these Lemon and Blueberry Waffles, if you have one, but we just used one of these waffle moulds from Amazon.

Our sweetener of choice is Sukrin 1 which is a natural, granulated sweetener (just like sugar) that has none of that horrible, artificial taste.

That being said, you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality, granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket including Canderel Sugarly and Natvia.

If you’re using powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners can weigh less.

You can pick up Natvia on Amazon as an alternative sweetener.

Hi I tried making these in the waffle maker, it didn’t end weel. The waffles stick to the waffle maker, spilt out the sides are were really just a mush. How much batter would you suggest to ut in each plate in the machine and how long would you suggest cooking them for? Thanks for the Recipes.
