An Easy Chocolate Waffles Recipe

In my house, breakfast for dinner is a thing. I like breakfast for dinner – pancakes, waffles, eggs, shakshuka. Normally, though, I try and keep the breakfast more savory than sweet. I am only mildly embarrassed to say that I have made this easy chocolate waffle recipe for dinner. Its real intent was to be something more on the dessert side, but somehow we were eating chocolate waffles with chocolate sauce and whipped cream for dinner. Its ok, we had fruit salad, too. Then my son asked “What is for dessert?” Eggs.

An Easy Chocolate Waffles Recipe – The Chocolateyness

In truth, the chocolate waffle recipe I like best is not that indulgent. It is the chocolate sauce and whipped cream that can put it over the edge. The addition of some powdered sugar is not that healthy, but you have to top a waffle with something.The chocolatey goodness in the waffles comes mostly from cocoa with the addition of chocolate chips adding to the flavor. As a dessert, it works nicely. Perhaps a small reduction in chocolate chips could make it more dinner appropriate. The chocolate chips work well, but the use of a finer chocolate could really make a nice addition. A 70% cacao chocolate would do the trick.

An Easy Chocolate Waffles Recipe – Beyond The Chocolate

Beyond the chocolate, the chocolate waffle recipe below is pretty straight forward. The dry ingredients are the usual staples and leveanors. The wet ingredients differ from most other recipes in that a nice portion of fat free, greek yogurt is used to add some tenderness to the waffle. I am not that big a fan of a crispy waffle. For dessert, I think something more cake-ish is best. The greek yogurt also helps keep the waffles moist and, although not that important, helps bring a little extra protein into the mix. I like using greek yogurt in my cooking and baking. I think it is a really nice addition to many dishes.
