Our breakfasts are usually simple during the week: oatmeal, toast, cereal, or yogurt and fruit. On the weekends, we like to splurge and make a special breakfast meal. We usually rotate pancakes, French toast, omelets, and waffles. When it is Josh’s turn to choose, he almost always picks waffles. He recently asked if we could make Chocolate Chip Waffles for breakfast and of course I said yes. Chocolate for breakfast? Count me in!
We searched Tasty Kitchen for a recipe and found Tasty Kitchen member Add a Pinch’s recipe for Chocolate Chip Waffles. I love Robyn’s blog, so I knew these waffles were going to be good.
To make the waffles, you will need flour, salt, sugar, baking soda, chocolate chips, buttermilk, eggs, butter, and vanilla extract. Note: we halved the recipe because there are only two of us.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, sugar, and baking soda.
Add in the chocolate chips and coat well with the flour mixture.
In a small bowl or glass measuring cup, mix together buttermilk, eggs, butter, and vanilla extract.
Pour liquid ingredients over dry ingredients.
Mix until just combined.
Pour batter onto a hot waffle iron.
Cook according to manufacturer’s instructions.
Serve warm with your favorite syrup and toppings.
The waffles made our kitchen smell like chocolate chip cookies. The waffles are light, fluffy, and dotted with chocolate chips. We both devoured our plate of waffles. Next time, I am going to make them for dessert. I think they would be delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Mmmm!
Thanks Robyn for a fantastic recipe! Chocolate Chip Waffles are the perfect breakfast treat. Visit her blog, Add A Pinch, for more of her great recipes and photography!

My 7 year old thought I lost my mind this morning when I fixed these for his breakfast. Chocolate for breakfast! It’s a win-win situation in my mind.

One of my favorite breakfasts for a lazy morning/afternoon. We always throw pecans on before the batter, and use mini chips for the chocolate. Also, chop dried cherries and add to the mix.

What if I don’t own a waffle maker? Would they work if I cooked them like pancakes?

Isn’t it funny how adding chocolate chips to an ordinary breakfast food makes it a treat?!

These look soo delicious! For some reason, waffles don’t ever turn out great for me–either too soft or too crisp. But I think a TK recipe will fix that right quick!

What is not to love about these? One of my favorite things to make is chocolate chip pancakes…will have to branch out to waffles!

I just buy boxed pancake mix… add water… and then the chocolate.
Carol on 5.9.2011
I often toss a few chopped pecans on the waffle iron before I pour the batter on. They toast as the waffles cook, and it’s SO yummy. I figure it adds protein–win, win. I bet these would be wonderful as is, and adding pecans might be fun, too.

We always dust our chocolate chip waffles with powdered sugar and skip the syrup. They do end up being more of a dessert treat than a meal but very yummy!

Michelle on 5.9.2011
Reminds me of my childhood, we would always make chocolate chip pancakes when my mom left for work. It is such a treat!
Rachel @ Baked by Rachel on 5.9.2011
Clearly I need to invest in a waffle maker so I can have another tasty breakfast (for dinner) option! It’s been YEARS since I’ve had a homemade waffle.
Hillary on 5.9.2011
We love waffles! If you can find cinnamon chips in your area, they make a nice substitute for chocolate chips in waffle batter like this one! Thanks for sharing your recipe.
Robyn | Add a Pinch on 5.9.2011
Maria – thanks so much for featuring my recipe for chocolate chip waffles. They are my son’s favorite breakfast! Glad you and Josh liked them.
Maria on 5.9.2011
Phoebe-I am sure you could use almond milk or soy milk instead of buttermilk.
Amy | She Wears Many Hats on 5.9.2011
Oh yum! This is worth waking up extra early for.
You can always count on Robyn for some great recipes.

Is there a dairy-free alternative to buttermilk?
Tabitha (FromSingletoMarried) on 5.9.2011
