Chocolate Almond Waffles


So paleo has definitely not gotten rid of my sweet tooth.  I grab a bag of Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips nearly every time I’m in the grocery store. Pop a few of those in your mouth as you’re cooking dinner and you’ll wish it was dessert.  So, I thought, why not make a dessert dinner? It’s almost as perfect as breakfast dinners. Oh WAIT! It’s that too.

Waffles are amazing. Enough said. Grab yourself a waffle maker, because you’ll be making these all the time, I guarantee it.

Now here’s twist, I like to grind my own almond flour…it adds a certain nutty taste to the waffle and make them quite filling.  If you don’t have time to make your own almond flour then grab a bag of Bob’s Red Mill Almond Meal in the organic section at your grocery store.

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 1.5 cup ground almonds (or almond meal/flour)
  • ⅓ cup canned coconut milk
  • ¼ cup Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips (Enjoy Life is the brand)
  • 3 T unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (make sure on the label it says 100% pure maple syrup! none of this corn syrup fake kind)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 chopped banana (optional)
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • dash of nutmeg (optional)

Instruction

  1. Whisk your eggs, then add in all the other ingredients including the banana (if desired).
  2. Coat your waffle maker with some type of oil (coconut, olive, vegetable if you can’t find anything else).
  3. Play around with the amount of batter you put in your waffle maker and see how the waffle turns out. I usually scoop a 1/2 cup or so and place it in the middle of the waffle maker. As I close the lid it slides outward.

Top with some maple syrup, more bananas, or whatever makes your heart go pitter-pat. :)
