Do you know what today is?  It’s waffle day, my friends.

And not just any waffles. My very favorite, kid-approved, much beloved homemade Double Chocolate Waffles, completely from scratch!

Breakfast or Dessert


One of the reasons why I love this recipe is that it’s like dessert for breakfast! I wanted to do a special, indulgent breakfast and since I have a bit of a sweet tooth, I decided to play off of my Chocolate Chip Brownie Waffle from a few years ago. With a few little tweaks, this Double Chocolate Waffle is just as decadent, but extra light and fluffy, thanks to my new Belgian Waffle maker.

 Allergy-friendly Chocolate Waffles

The other thing I love about these waffles are that they are what we call, Xander Friendly. They are free from:

  • dairy
  • eggs
  • peanuts & tree nuts
  • soy
  • wheat & gluten

They are also vegan,  which makes me extra happy!

Who are we kidding….chocolate makes me happy!  Now, I’ll be the first to say that this isn’t exactly a breakfast recipe that you should be eating on a regular basis. But special occasions call for special breakfasts, wouldn’t you agree? Like celebrating a birthday or when your kiddo gets straight A’s on their report card.  Just make sure to eat some healthier foods during the week so you can splurge and indulge on those things that make you happy….like Double Chocolate Waffles.

The Ingredients

Our waffles use Bob’s 1-to-1 Gluten-free Baking Flour which is always in my pantry.  Since I don’t claim to be a GF Genius, this flour blend makes it easy to transform a traditional recipe into gluten-free goodness.

The chocolate comes from raw cacao powder, a superfood that I love using instead of regular cocoa.  Not that it makes this waffle healthy, but this alternative does make it richer in antioxidants, iron, magnesium & fiber. I’ll take that anyday….with an extra sprinkling of confectioners sugar, of course!

And don’t forget about the dairy-free Greek yogurt. Its acidic nature helps make the chocolate waffles extra fluffy and light, while adding a delicately tangy flavor. Plus the acidity reacts with the baking soda which helps with leavening (important since we don’t use eggs).  Two dairy-free yogurts to consider are Good Karma (which uses flax) and Daiya Foods (coconut milk based alternative), both yield similar results, but choose according to your allergens.

Our extra chocolate-y bonus comes from the add-in of chopped Sun Cups Minis from Free2B Foods.  This light and creamy, dairy-free, chocolate treat filled with sunflower seed butter is Top 12 Allergen Free, vegan and makes these waffles over the top tasty! But let’s be honest, they may never make it into the waffles if you start snacking on them beforehand.  I highly suggest you get an extra bag and hide them in a safe place for recipes such as this!

Then top these Double Chocolate Waffles with fresh raspberries and a sprinkling of powdered sugar. Unless you’re my son Xander, then just dump the sugar on top!  The waffles will be remarkably delicious either way. Enjoy!

How do you top off your waffles?

      Chocolate is difficult to turn down in our house as well. Hope you were able to indulge a little this weekend.
