Classic Southern Waffles with Creamy Grits

Prep Time



Cook Time





Serves Up To




  • 2 1/2 cups Almond Breeze Unsweetened Original Almondmilk (divided)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 tbs butter
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup instant grits
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbs melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 tsp salt
  • Nonstick cooking spray


  1. 1

    Start the grits: Bring 1 ¾ cups Almond Breeze, broth, buttery spread and salt to a boil in a medium saucepan. Reduce heat to low and stir in grits. Cook over low heat, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes. Season with pepper.

  2. 2

    While grits simmer, make the waffles. Stir together Almond Breeze and lemon juice in a large bowl. Let stand for 5 minutes, then whisk in butter and egg. Add remaining ingredients and stir just until flour is incorporated.

  3. 3

    Coat a waffle iron with cooking spray. Using 1/4 of the batter at a time, cook on the highest setting until indicator light turns green and waffles are a light golden brown, coating with cooking spray between each waffle.

  4. 4

    Serve immediately after cooking topped with warm grits and a drizzle of butter.

*May substitute water and egg replacer to equal 1 egg, following package directions.

Cook’s notes: Waffles go from crisp to soft soon as soon as they start to cool. If you’re not serving right away, crisp waffles by placing them back in the hot waffle iron for about 10 seconds.

If prepared slightly ahead, grits may become thick. Whisk in additional Almond Breeze to reach desired consistency.
