Since getting my teeny tiny waffle maker, I have been whipping up waffles out the wazoo. Buckwheat is always my favorite flour to use in any breakfast dish, so I figured one filled with chocolate will be extra delish.

And my hypothesis proved successful.

These waffles are crispy on the edges and fluffy in the middle, as well as filled with melted dark chocolate from Alter Eco, and extra chocolatey goodness from the cacao powder in the batter. They’re delish by themselves or with toppings, or even as a waffle ice cream sandwich. Seriously, you can go as wild as you want.

LET’S GET COOKING!

Double Chocolate Buckwheat Waffles

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 cup oats

1/2 cup buckwheat flour

2 Tbsp cacao powder

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

1 tsp flaxseed

1/2 ripe banana

3/4 cup almond milk

1-2 Tbsp maple syrup or sweetener of choice

1/3 cup chopped Alter Eco dark chocolate

INSTRUCTIONS:

Blend all of the ingredients together in a food processor - then, allow the batter to sit while you preheat your waffle maker. Fold in your chopped chocolate into the batter before cooking. Put a bit of coconut oil on your waffle maker so that the waffles are easier to take out! Cook according to the waffle maker’s instructions.

Fold your chopped chocolate into the batter before cooking in your waffle maker!

The beauties once they’ve fully cooked and are given a chance to cool a bit - they’re the perfect combo of crispy and fluffy!

Then, just add your favorite toppings! I added some fresh blueberries, cherries, sliced banana, drizzled peanut butter, and vegan yogurt. Oh, and some extra chopped chocolate for good measure.
