Chocolate Chip Waffles


Before Zachary was born, waffles were becoming a pretty popular item in our household for dinner.  They’re easy to make (well, once you figure out how to use your waffle iron properly, which thankfully I have finally done) and we always have the ingredients for a basic mix.  From there, you can add whatever you have around and change them up all the time.

I’d planned on making some yogurt waffles one night, but realized as I had already started mixing together ingredients that the yogurt I had bought was sitting in my fridge at work.  Oops.  I wanted something a little different than plain waffles, but wanted to keep them relatively healthy so I quickly searched the Cooking Light website, and ended up with these chocolate chip waffles.  I didn’t have chips around, so I just chopped up part of a dark chocolate bar and added those. Aside from that and switching out part of the flour for whole wheat, I left the recipe as-is.  We had these with some fresh strawberries that I added just a little bit of sugar to and let sit there to pull out the juices as I made the waffles, and of course pure maple syrup.  The strawberries were a great accompaniment to these waffles, and raspberries would be great, too.

  1. Oh my goodness, these look soooooooooooooooo delicious! Maybe it’s because it’s 7 in the morning, but these look really great. yum yum yum.

  2. I love breakfast for dinner too! And waffles are great because you can freeze any extras – this healthier version sounds delicious!

  3. These looks delicious and I am so tempted to get me waffle iron out of the cupboard but unfortunately it will have to stay there for a while, as I have to lose some weight.

  4. Can I tell you I’ve been wanting a waffle maker as long as I’ve been married (that’s 9 1/2 years now) and have yet to get one!! I’m making an early Christmas list from now and sending it to my sisters (my husband would never put two and two togehter) so that I don’t look AS needy come Christmastime.

    Breakfast for dinner is great … I really want to establish that as a once or twice a month “event” for the kiddies because I think they’d really get a kick out of it. And the waffled look excellent by the way 😉
