What could be better on a Saturday morning?
You all know that I have a love for sweet breakfasts. The more it looks like dessert, the happier I am. Exhibit A:
You get the idea.
But whenever I make sweet treats like this for breakfast, I always make sure to make it while whole grains (and fruit, if I can) so that it still provides some nutrition. But I can promise you that no one will detect the whole wheat in these. They will only detect the delicious.
Chocolate Buttermilk Waffles
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 2 minutes
Keywords: breakfast chocolate
Ingredients (2 waffles)
- 1/2 c. all purpose flour
- scant 1/3 c. white whole wheat flour
- 3/4 t. baking powder
- 1/4 t. baking soda
- 1/4 t. salt
- 3 T. cocoa powder
- 1 T. sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 t. vanilla
- 1 c. buttermilk
- 1/4 c. vegetable oil or melted butter
In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cocoa powder, and sugar.
In a separate small bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the mixed wet ingredients.
Whisk together until smooth.
Pour batter into a hot, greased waffle iron and cook according to waffle maker directions (generally this is a couple minutes, until steam stops coming out of the iron).
Sprinkle with chocolate chips, chopped nuts, or any other garnish that you like.
There’s nothing like a waffle to make you feel like it’s the weekend!
Thanks for weekend! Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!
