Why Wild Blueberries and Lemon Zest Marry Perfectly in Waffles
Particularly, I use wild blueberries in this recipe because those tiny bits get cooked in all the little crevices of the waffles and each bite explodes with berry-bliss! Oh yeah! So heavenly. You get the crispy exterior, the soft fluffy interior, the hint of citrus and then, pow, a bite of wild blueberries explode in your mouth! I think that explains it all!

Choosing a Healthy Waffle Maker
For this recipe, I use a Ceramic Belgian Waffle Maker that rotates for even baking. By the way, this is my favorite waffle iron because it is has a ceramic coating which is PTFE and PFOA free and environmentally friendly. In addition, ceramic is a healthier version of non-stick cookware.

Inspiration for Gluten Free Wild Blueberry Lemon Waffles
This recipe was inspired by my Best Gluten Free Waffles recipe which I have been making for over 4 years and they are still a family favorite! I make these at least once a week! Besides, these waffles never fail me, therefore I am always making several variations. I felt it was about time I shared these delicious recipes that are worthy for guests at brunch time.
How to Store and Re-heat Waffles
By the way, be sure to make a double batch of these because they are easy to make and hold up really well in the fridge. As a rule, allow leftover waffles to cool to room temperature so they do not stick together in the fridge. Afterward, store them in a sealed container separated by parchment paper in the fridge for up to 3 days.
To reheat them, I just pop them in the toaster oven for 5 minutes and serve piping hot! They are crispy and oh so delicious! Oh, it is so lovely to have these as leftovers!
Healthy + delicious breakfast + easy breakfast = super duper happy Mom and kids!
