hi friends! so excited to share this little project we worked on a few months back in collaboration with Blendtec! ever since Jake and I started eating a whole foods heavy diet a few years ago, we’ve been on the hunt for the king of blenders to add to our kit of food prep. paleo/whole30/whole foods – you name it – we all know how much time we spend chopping, prepping, dicing, slicing, not to mention washing up alllll the dishes when we’re done… it takes some dedication, amiright? anytime a tool comes into our lives that makes clean eating simpler + easier? sold sold sold.
I’ve been making these blueberry waffles for months, but never as smooth, never as fluffy, and definitely never with one dish left over like the first time with our Designer 725.
our family has no problem with dairy in moderation so when we need milk for recipes, we head to our local dairy farm for a gallon of Fernwood Creamery’s finest. risking sounding like a broken record – – we love opportunities to take our kids from farm to table with their meals! yes, it’s an extra step. but i can’t find giant, friendly turkeys and sweet baby calfs at my grocery store! we just got word from our farmer that Zoey is invited to come watch and help at the evening milking process and I might be twice as excited as she is. I’m a firm believer that eating whole foods starts with knowing where your food comes from and it doesn’t get much more fresh than that! keep reading to the bottom for another way we used our fresh cream for a delicious waffle topping!
zoey and I are making our way through trying our Blendtec’s many features, most recently, the ice cream button (strawberry sorbet, hello!). and I love that she can safely be hands on, helping make waffles for breakfast every step of the way without a knife to speak of. it brings goosebumps to my arms when I see her pull on her big rubber boots every morning, gather a basket full of eggs from our sweet hens, crack them by herself into a mixing bowl and whisk them up with pride. so when she gets her hands on measuring cups and blender buttons? watch out.
Grain-free Blueberry Blender Waffles
PREP TIME: 12 mins COOK TIME: 10 mins TOTAL TIME: 22 mins
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup raw cashews
- 1/3 cup raw milk (almond milk or any non-dairy milk works too!)

- Plug in and preheat your waffle iron.
- Combine eggs, cashews, milk and maple syrup in your blender, blend until super smooth and creamy.
- Add in the salt, baking soda and coconut flour and blend about one minute until both wet and dry ingredients are well combined.
- Turn off the blender and stir in the blueberries by hand.
- Spray or brush your favorite cooking oil onto your waffle iron. (We love coconut oil spray!) Pour waffle batter onto your iron leaving room at the edges for plenty of rising.
- Cook the waffles for around one minute adjusting as necessary, until they lift easily with a fork.
- Makes around 4 waffles! Top with Blender Butter, maple syrup, yogurt or your favorite fresh fruit and dig in!
