See these beautiful chocolate-y waffles? They’re mine. All mine! I saw this recipe in my local newspaper and just loved the ingredients; whole wheat pastry flour and almond meal, plus a smidgen of chocolate for a dose of antioxidants that are good for the heart!

Swooning over these waffles too? Well, apparently it may be just the two of us! See, I left the clipping from the newspaper on the kitchen counter and Alan glanced at the recipe and gave it thumbs down. More specifically he said, “EWWW, that doesn’t sound good!”

Uh, hello mystery person! Who are you and where is my husband? In disbelief I responded, “Fine. I won’t make these for you, but you can make them for ME!” And there the recipe sat, and sat, and sat until this past weekend when I treated myself to waffles!

I know that the house smelled like a bakery as each waffle cooked up, and being the smart man that Alan is he didn’t dare act interested in what I was making. Nope. Not at all. Pshhhh!

These tasty waffles have a mild nutty flavor from the almond meal, which also adds an extra boost of protein! I ate these with fresh whipped cream and strawberries, which added the perfect amount of sweetness for me. The recipe only calls for 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, so if you like sweeter waffles, then top them with maple syrup, homemade blueberry sauce, sugar free strawberry topping or fold in some mini chocolate chips!

I shared a basic waffle recipe and tips on  how to freeze waffles in a previous post, and since I couldn’t possible eat all of these waffles in one sitting I put those tips to use! Now my busy work week  gets easier with breakfast already made! I can pop a couple of waffles in the toaster right out of the freezer!

What do you think about topping these whole wheat chocolate waffles with a scoop of vanilla ice cream with some chocolate syrup for dessert? Mine. All mine! Teehee.

    For some reason I’ve always preferred waffles to pancakes and this recipe is just the best! Love whole wheat, and of course chocolate is always great!

      Waffles just seem light and airy compared to pancakes.

    Your husband is very smart. He did not want to do any of the work but I am certain you caved in and gave him some. I need to buy a waffle maker just so that I can make your recipe,

    So, I love that you are pretty much are hiding the whole wheat with chocolate! 🙂 I might have to give these a go with my teenage son. He always turns up his nose at anything that even looks like it is whole wheat, but he wouldn’t even know because of the chocolate in these waffles. Shhhhhh…

      The whole wheat is unnoticeable in my opinion and yes, the chocolate takes care of any trace of it!
