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.

I’ve done these twice now and I think I’ve got the hang of it! We have huge eggs, so last time it was too runny. This time I used two large eggs, the same amount of Yoghurt, and 80g of oats blended into flour. These were great in the waffle maker using spray oil for 7-8 minutes.

This made about 3.5 waffles and I worked out the calories as 597 for all 4 of them. (they were fine overnight in the fridge too)

    Hi Olive, thanks for telling us about your experience of making this recipe. It does sound like your eggs were too big. We use average sized eggs unless stated otherwise. So glad you were able to adapt this recipe to work with the eggs you had.

I tried these in a waffle making machine. Disaster, wouldn’t recommend doing them in a machine. Completely fell apart and although the machine is new and I used fry light, totally stuck to the machine.
Will have to try some moulds!
