Zucchini Waffles: Sweet OR Savory

Weekends are made for waffles! Grab some zucchini and choose sweet or savory - either way, you cannot go wrong with these crispy on the outside, soft on the inside waffles! They'll make breakfast (or lunch or dinner) delicious! A 1/2 pound of zucchini from our online market works for either recipe.

Savory: Zucchini Cheddar Waffle Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 1/2 cup dairy milk (or unsweetened milk alternative)

  • 1 cup peeled and then grated zucchini (peel only if you are trying to fool your family into eating veggies for breakfast

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Sweet: Zucchini Bread Waffle Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 1/2 cups dairy milk (or milk alternative)

  • 1 1/2 cups peeled and then grated zucchini (peel only if you are trying to fool your family into eating veggies for breakfast)

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

To Make the Sweet OR Savory Waffles

  1. Preheat your waffle iron (we love Belgian waffles for their crispier outside, but regular waffle irons work well, too)

  2. Mix the first 4 ingredients together (the dry ingredients) in a bowl with a wisk.

  3. In a separate bowl, mix the remaining ingredients (the wet ingredients) until combined.

  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix just until mixed (do not over-mix).

  5. When waffle iron is preheated, coat both sides with cooking spray and pour about 1/2 cup of batter in the iron (more if you have a waffle iron that makes more than 1 waffle at a time) and cook according to the directions provided with your waffle iron.

  6. Enjoy with a fried egg, maple syrup, butter, or just pick up and eat with your hands!


If you have leftover waffles, freeze them for reheating in the microwave or toaster later. We love blueberries and whipped cream on the sweet waffle, while making the savory a weeknight dinner by adding sauteed kale and a fried egg.
