Cornbread waffles with blueberry compote

One of my favourite foods to eat in the summer is cornbread. I can honestly just sit down and eat an entire batch for a meal at a summer bbq or weekend brunch. So I decided to make a recipe that combines one of my favourite summer foods, with one of my favourite breakfast foods!

Cornbread waffles with blueberry compote

These cornbread waffles with blueberry compote make a great weekday or weekend brunch. These waffles are 100% plant-based and can be made gluten-free if needed. I love making a batch of these on Sunday mornings for a healthy breakfast that feels like eating dessert!

Now, some of you may be saying “but what if I don’t have a waffle press?” Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered! You can easily make this recipe into cornbread pancakes instead. Simply oil a pan on medium heat, place a scoop of batter into the pan, and let cook about 2-3 minutes on each side!
