I'm always looking for ways to merge delicious and healthy, these chocolate waffles definitely cover both.
I tried every waffle maker out there in the lower price range (up to $150) and they all failed one way or another. I don't know if you have ever tried to make waffles and have the batter stick to the grill, but it is not a fun clean up! I treated myself to an All-Clad Belgian Waffle Maker from Williams Sonoma. It was the best $200 I spent (well I might be exaggerating to make a point here). I firmly believe quality wins out. I use the waffle iron at least once a week. I make health breakfasts that we all enjoy using quality healthy ingredients instead of the store bought junk food types, to me that is worth every penny. I have been using the iron for about three years (like I said it's been used a minimum of once weekly) and it still operates like new. I can't say enough about how much I love this waffle iron.
I found the original recipe for the chocolate waffles on superhealtykids.com (a great resource for healthier recipes the whole family will like) and tweaked it a bit. I was a bit nervous about the buckwheat flour as it can be grainy but no one noticed.
Top with your favourite fruit, nut and coconut whip cream for an extra special treat. This waffle is quite sweet and doesn't need much maple syrup.
Enjoy! We did!
