Chocolate Waffle Recipe with Whole Wheat Flour
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. To be exact, 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!
Chocolate waffles made almond meal adds an extra boost of protein!
I ate these with fresh whipped cream and strawberries, which added the perfect amount of sweetness for me.
For more chocolate flavor make chocolate chip waffles by folding in 1/2 cup of chips!
Mini chocolate chips will give these chocolate waffles an extra boost of flavor.
Add a scoop or two of chocolate chips and kids won’t even notice the other healthy ingredients in this recipe.
Storing homemade waffles
Once cooked, waffles can be stored in an airtight container for about 5 days. Just pop them in the toaster or oven to reheat.
To freeze follow these tips on how to freeze waffles from a previous post.
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!
