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!
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!
