Chocolate Chocolate Chip Waffles

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Waffles (Gluten-free!)

Sometimes, it’s Friday night and you have an awesome dinner plan that includes chicken tikka masala and a spiced basmati rice… AND THEN your husband reminds you that it’s Lent. No meat, sister. Plan B? Ask the kids for ideas. Waffles? Why not? Chocolate waffles? Even better. Chocolate chocolate chip waffles? Yes, ma’am!!

These chocolate chocolate chip waffles were ridiculously good. I don’t necessarily recommend you eat them for dinner, but I won’t judge if you do. Chocolate waffles would be amazing, of course, for breakfast or even dessert topped with fresh fruit or ice cream.

Stop the madness. Let me get to recipe … You need to make these very soon. Our first batch didn’t have enough sugar or milk but they were still pretty awesome. We upped our milk and our sugar and I think we achieved chocolate chocolate chip waffle perfection. If you like your waffles a little on the sweeter side, you might want a bit more sugar. The batter will be thick – you can thin it out a little bit more with a bit more milk. An extra splash or two should be fine but not much more than that.

How often do you have breakfast for dinner? Tell me I’m not alone!! 🙂

  1. These double chocolate waffles look so delicious and what a bonus that they are gluten free! I bet they would taste amazing with some homemade whipped cream on top and strawberries! Now I’m getting hungry…

    1. OOHHH!!! Homemade whipped cream! YES to that. I have been mainly dairy-free with nursing the baby – can’t believe I forgot about homemade whipped cream. Really, that would be perfect.

    1. It’s hard to say no to that! We generally do the breakfast for dinner nights when my husband isn’t coming home… I am not sure mine would be on board! Love that!

    1. Thanks, Justin! I have to say this was our first chocolate waffle adventure and we can’t believe we’ve been missing out for so long!

  2. We made these to cap off our Thanksgiving weekend of eating. They have a super texture and cooked up perfectly. We served with whipped cream and breakfast sausage. REALLY YUMMY!
