Dark Chocolate Whole Wheat Waffles

Today is my mom’s birthday.  It also happens to be the first day of spring. 

To celebrate, I am sharing with you a new favorite waffle – 100% whole wheat goodness with some dark chocolate cocoa powder thrown in for good measure!

On the last waffle or two I tossed in some dark chocolate chips – oh my, what a treat.  

Happy Birthday, Mom.  You are the best and I’m so thankful that God chose you to give me life and to teach and instruct me.  I love you.

  1. These look scrumptious! However, in the past year I have noticed that I am reacting to whole wheat:( Boo...Just bought some coconut flour, we'll see how that works.

  2. These look wonderful! May I ask what type of waffle maker you use? Your waffles look absolutely perfect!! I bought a not-too-cheap Food Network brand from Kohls and my waffles still turn out looking like science experiments. ;-)

  3. I've been browsing chocolate waffle recipes & thought yours looked delicious! I just wanted to invite you over to my waffle link party this honor of National Waffle Day (yesterday). You are welcome to link up this and/or any other waffle recipe on your site!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
