1. Combine the ingredients for the batter in either a blender or a very large bowl. Using a whisk, stir together well, or blend on low for about 30 seconds.
2. Preheat your waffle iron. I have this double-sided waffle iron that I LOVE because I can make TWO waffles at the same time it would ordinarily take to make one. Plus the pockets of this waffle maker are deep – perfect for catching melting butter and maple syrup!
3. Pour about ¼ cup to ½ cup of batter into your waffle iron (the amount depends on the waffle iron you’re using). Cook the waffle per the directions on your waffle iron, adding another 30-60 seconds of cook time if you like them crispy.
4. Remove from the waffle iron, serve hot with desired toppings (i.e. melted butter, maple syrup, fresh fruit, etc.) and enjoy!


  • How to Freeze Sourdough Waffles: These waffles are PERFECT to freeze and reheat wonderfully. To freeze, place cooked waffles on a baking sheet in a single layer. Place in the freezer for at least 4 hours (up to overnight) and then remove the waffles to a gallon-size freezer-safe bag (I can usually get 4-5 waffles per bag). To reheat, toast the waffle in a toaster, toaster oven, or oven until warmed through and crispy.
  • Save ALL of your Discard: If you don’t have enough discard to make waffles today, you can “save” your discard by pouring it into a glass jar (instead of pouring it in the trash) and making waffles when you have enough. You can also INTENTIONALLY feed your starter extra flour and water so that you have extra discard sooner.
  • Don’t have sourdough discard? I recommend making oatmeal cinnamon blender waffles or blender chocolate waffles until you have enough discard. Making cheater sourdough waffles with buttermilk or yeast doesn’t good (in my opinion) and isn’t worth wasting the ingredients.
  • Don’t have sourdough discard? Here’s how to make a sourdough starter. You’ll have plenty of discard in about a week, and you don’t ever have to make bread if you don’t want to!
