You don’t have to believe me but this cornmeal greek yogurt recipe is the best waffle recipe I ever made!Last year I had my teeth straightened (at the age of 35 indeed…) and could hardly eat anything for 10 months. I didn’t tell that many people I did it and made sure the orthodontist put the braces on the inner side of my teeth, which made me look kind of normal. At the age of 35, I can tell you most people raised an eyebrow at me undergoing such a procedure, I was getting all kind of reaction of “why would you straighten your teeth at this age” and the famous “but you just got married, why would you do it know?”. I can honestly say that this was something I did for my self! I wanted to do it ever since I can remember, and even held a little grudge at my parents not letting me do it when I was a teenager.
I really believe that if there’s something bothering you about yourself and you can change it without endangering your life you should do it. And yes I know that inner beauty is much more important, and I know my teeth never held me back from getting anything, but it bothered me, and I am so glad I did it.So as I mentioned, I could bite on almost nothing which was a real drag. At the beginning, I eat tons of ice cream and then realized that if I’ll keep eating ice cream I’ll end up with straight teeth and a fat tummy. So I started making waffles, I experienced with all kind of waffle until I figured which was my all-time favorite waffle recipe.
Cornmeal and greek yogurt waffles were my all time favorite. They were extremely easy to make, they’re the perfect texture and oh so delicious. You can make these babies for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You can top the cornmeal waffles with honey, maple or even sprinkle with some parmesan or spread with spicy salsa if you like to have a savory version.
Cornmeal and Greek Yogurt Waffles
- 3/4 cup plain flour
- 3/4 cup cornmeal
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1 cup Greek yogurt
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil I used canola
In a medium bowl combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a smaller bowl, whisk yogurt, egg, honey, and oil until combined. Pour into dry ingredients and stir to combine.
Heat waffle iron according to manufacturer’s instructions; I usually find medium heat just fine here.
Coat waffle iron with nonstick spray. Ladle in waffle batter one tablespoon at a time. Cook according to your waffle iron’s instructions.
