Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (or 3/4 cup all-purpose flour and 3/4 cup whole wheat flour)
  • 1 cup old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seed (optional)
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini, squeezed of excess moisture*
  • 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)


  1. In a large bowl, stir buttermilk, vanilla, eggs, and butter in a bowl until evenly blended.
  2.  In a medium bowl, combine flour(s), oats, baking powder, brown sugar, salt, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg and ground flax seed.
  3. Gradually stir flour mixture into buttermilk mixture until just combined. Gently fold in zucchini and blueberries. Let the batter sit for 10 minutes so the oats have time to soak up some of the moisture.
  4. Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions.
  5. Spray the waffle maker with cooking spray (top and bottom plates). Spread the batter evenly over the bottom of the waffle maker (generally about 1/2 cup per waffle) and close the top.
  6. Cook according to manufacturer's instructions, or until the waffles are as crisp as you like them. I usually turn to the medium setting on my waffle maker, but all appliances will cook at different rates. So please follow your manufacturer's instructions.
  7. Repeat with remaining batter and don’t forget to spray the waffle iron top and bottom plates with every set.
  8. Top with Greek yogurt, honey or real maple syrup and fresh blueberries.


*Measure 1 heaping cup of shredded zucchini, then place shredded zucchini in a paper towel or cheese cloth and squeeze out all of the moisture/water. This is very important!
