Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip WafflesElizabeth Stark
We’re celebrating this weekend. After weeks and weeks of home improvement, entertaining, and various unexpected inconveniences, we finally have the chance to catch our breath. At long last, a relaxing family weekend–the perfect time to cook up some mildly decadent chocolate chip waffles. These whole wheat waffles offer a touch of chocolatey sweetness, as well as whole grain goodness. Served with a sprinkle of chocolate chips, a drizzle of maple syrup, and a side of orange slices, these tasty waffles are great for a family breakfast or brunch.
Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Waffles
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour, all-purpose flour, or a mixture of both
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar or honey
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 3/4 cups milk
2 tablespoons Grand Marnier (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat your waffle iron while you prepare your ingredients.
Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Stir in the chocolate chips, and set bowl aside.
In a small bowl, combine the butter, eggs, milk, Grand Marnier, and vanilla. Fold into the dry mixture, stirring just until combined. Batter should be just runny enough to drizzle off a spoon. If your batter is on the thick side, add a few more splashes of milk.
Spoon 1/4 cup of batter per waffle onto the waffle iron, and cook until the waffles are light golden brown.
