  • Fresh/Frozen Fruit

Whatever accompaniment you choose, don’t forget to account for the extra calories and/or other nutritional values.

How do you know when these Strawberry and Vanilla Waffles are cooked?

You should cook these waffles until they are crisp on the outside. They should be cooked through but still soft in the centre.

This should take approx 20-30 minutes in an oven.

Standard advice here in the UK is to cook food until it has reached 70°C and stayed at that temperature for 2 minutes. This is to keep your family safe.

You could reheat these in the microwave for 5-6 minutes until piping hot. They probably won’t be as crispy this way.

I only have the very fine sweetener so should I use more or less compared to granulated?
Thank you x


    HollyWednesday 10th February 2021

    Hi Caroline, we have an article HERE that explains the types of sweeteners we use, you might find it helpful


Rosemarie OrrWednesday 20th January 2021

Hi! I love this recipe! i was just wondering, does the total calories include the 100g of strawberries?


    HollyThursday 21st January 2021

    Hey Rosemarie, yes the calories include the strawberries. Hope that helps!


      RosemarieWednesday 27th January 2021

      Is it best to use rolled oats or porridge oats?

      LisaThursday 28th January 2021

      Hi Rosemarie
      Either type can be used as they are blitzed to get a fine texture. Hope this helps.

LisaThursday 2nd July 2020

Mine always take waaay longer to cook (50 mins?) and are still soft in the middle and I can’t get them out of the mold. Any tips?


    HollyThursday 2nd July 2020

    Hey Lisa, ovens play a big part in cooking times! Give your oven plenty of time to preheat so turn it onto the right temperature before you even start making the waffles some can take 15 minutes to heat up also you could try placing them higher up in the oven so on the top shelf as that might help them cook faster too. Hope that helps!


HelsBellsMonday 20th April 2020

Will these work in a waffle iron too… or do they need to be baked in oven?


    HollyWednesday 6th May 2020

    Hey, yes these can be cooked in the waffle iron too!


EmmaSunday 23rd February 2020

Can you make them in a waffle maker rather than the moulds?


    HollyWednesday 6th May 2020

    Hi Emma, yes these will work great in a waffle maker!


      LouiseWednesday 8th September 2021

      I have a waffle maker but there are no times listed if anyone would use one. Can you advise how long it would take please x

      HollyThursday 9th September 2021

      Hey Louise, cooking time depends on your particular waffle maker so it might be best to refer to your machines guidelines but I’d suggest 4-6 minutes. There’s a good tip that when the steam stops coming out from the sides of the waffle maker it should be done but you can always open it up and if it’s not quite done cook it for a little longer. Hope that helps!

KerryWednesday 19th February 2020

Can you make waffles with coconut flour?


    LisaTuesday 26th May 2020

    Hi Kerry. We haven’t tested this recipe with coconut flour. It behaves a little differently to wheat flour as it is more absorbent so generally requires more liquid. We wouldn’t advise a direct swap for this flour in the recipe. Hope this helps


Andrea HawkinsMonday 9th December 2019

Do you have to add the yogurt ? Alternative ?


    Sharon FitzpatrickFriday 8th May 2020

    Hi Andrea, thanks for your question. You do need to add the yogurt as it’s one of the main ingredients in the waffles. We have tested these using yogurt but maybe you could try them with quark instead? We would be interested to hear how you get on. Thanks for getting in touch.


kimWednesday 26th June 2019

Hello can you weigh the oats when there all ready blended I’m planning on blitzing loads of oats at the same time to make it quicker in the mornings


    CateWednesday 26th June 2019

    Yes you can, it won’t effect the weight 🙂


ClareWednesday 12th June 2019

Could I use Greek yogurt instead?


    Emma TThursday 20th June 2019

    Hi Clare,

    Yes you could, though it may be a little too thick ????


Laura WinstanleySaturday 16th February 2019

Can you store these room temperature in a tub for the next morning? I put in the fridge overnight but they went a bit chewy.


Gillian HopeWednesday 9th January 2019


I’m still getting my head around this recipe; but am I daft or can you not simply use oatmeal instead of blitzing the porridge oats? Would it not then be the same thing?




christine macdonaldSunday 6th January 2019

I live in Canada can I order your new cookbook here


HelenThursday 9th August 2018

Has anyone tried making these with Al-pro yogurt or another vegan alternative? Did they turn out okay?


    ChristineFriday 19th March 2021

    I made them this morning with Alpro coconut yoghurt and they were lovely.


      HollyMonday 22nd March 2021

      Hi Christine, thanks for getting in touch so glad you enjoyed this recipe!

JodiMonday 28th May 2018

Hi, tried these this morning, used a strawberry mullerlight, they tasted lovely but they stuck to the silicone mould a little so they didn’t have the ‘waffle look’. Does anyone know how to prevent from sticking please?


    Anna BlakeSaturday 8th January 2022

    I always spray fry light on the mould before filling it with the mixture


      HollyMonday 10th January 2022

      Hi Anna, thank you so much for your recipe tip!

PaulaMonday 30th April 2018

Can these be made with oat bran instead of porridge oats ?


SuFriday 16th March 2018

Are these really 459 calories? That seems a lot for the ingredients listed.


CharlotteWednesday 14th February 2018

Can you use cook the waffles in the microwave instead of the oven? I have just received my mould in the post and want to try it immediaetely at work which only has a microwave so was crossing my fingers I could try for lunch!!!


neeWednesday 7th February 2018

i got the waffle mould red n it look really too small n worry that the mixture will be overflowing! it’s just 15cm!?


HayleyWednesday 24th January 2018

Hi, I can’t wait to try these for my weekend brunch! Can you use a waffle maker instead of the mold. Thanks


JoWednesday 24th January 2018

Made these at the weekend. Very tasty. I did make a change to your recipe though. Having watched Nigella making normal
Waffles, she beat her egg whites to soft peaks. So I separated my eggs. Beat the whites then folded in to the rest.
They came out lovely and fluffy.
(I often find these ‘egg’ recipes come out very eggy. But we’re just like waffles. Some amazing ideas on your website. Thank you xx


MarcelleMonday 22nd January 2018

Do you think I could use ready brek instead of oats?


ClaireSunday 7th January 2018

I don’t have fat free natural yoghurt in the fridge but have lots of muller light. Would this work?


BeckySunday 22nd October 2017

These were really scrumpy and very filling. I tripled recipe for 3 people and it made 10 waffles so works out at 3 and a third waffles each! I could only eat 1


Janice O'ConnellFriday 22nd September 2017

Meant tsp


Janice O'ConnellFriday 22nd September 2017

I only used 3 taps as not got a sweet tooth and really enjoyed them but will try them with 2 tbsp to see if there much of a difference


Naomi MorriceThursday 14th September 2017

Made the strawberry and vanilla waffles for our breakfast this morning. Absolutely delicious! They didn’t look quite as golden as the ones in the photograph. Was I supposed to brush them with egg/put on some sort of glaze before finishing off in the oven? Would love them to look more like yours!!!


Trisha LukeMonday 21st August 2017

I measured everything very carefully. Had too much mixture for the red silicone mould I had bought from Amazon. Made a quick pancake with surplus! What did I do wrong? Tasted very nice but not as brown as on the picture, even after putting back in the oven for the first extra 5 minutes.


    Emma TMonday 11th September 2017

    Hi Trisha,

    Perhaps your mould was smaller than the one we used? All ovens vary, so it might be that your oven needs to be hotter to get them to brown better ????
