Chocolate Chip Waffles – Light and fluffy waffles full of chocolate chips. The perfect sweet breakfast treat topped with fruit, syrup or even whipped cream!

I love lazy weekend mornings that involve a delicious homemade breakfast. I lean more on the sweet side for breakfast, and if I can find a way to incorporate chocolate, I definitely will!

I mean, who can say no to Nutella Crepes? They are a decadent breakfast treat that is hard to say no to.

If you have never made homemade waffles before, it is time to change that. They are perfectly light and fluffy on the inside while staying crispy on the outside. And they are so much better than any box mix out there.

Plus you can make extra to have in your freezer or fridge to make busy mornings all week super easy. No thinking, just put them in the toaster and breakfast is ready.

How To Make Homemade Chocolate Chip Waffles

  1. Melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl until it is just melted. Let it cool slightly, so it doesn’t curdle the milk when you mix them together.
  2. In one bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt until they are combined.
  3. In another bowl whisk the eggs and sugar until the eggs are light and fluffy and a pale yellow color.
  4. Pour in the melted butter, vanilla extract, and buttermilk and whisk until it is smooth and combined.

  1. Stir in the flour mixture until it is blended. You do not want to over mix this, a few lumps in the batter is ok.
  2. Fold in the chocolate chips until they are just incorporated.
  3. Let the batter rest for 5 minutes while you preheat your waffle iron. This helps to give you light and airy waffles.
  4. Pour waffle batter over a hot waffle iron and cook according to your waffle iron instructions. You can use a Belgian or traditional waffle iron, both work, just follow the instructions for your device.
  5. Once the waffles are cooked, remove them from the pan and enjoy! You can keep waffles warm in a 200º F oven while you continue to cook the rest of the batter.

There are so many options for how you want to top your waffles, but here are a list of some of my favorites!

  • Maple Syrup
  • Berries, pretty much any kind
  • More Chocolate Chips
  • Whipped Cream
  • Bananas
  • Raspberry Sauce

Storing Leftovers

The best part about making waffles is making extra so you can have them for days! They are perfect for your freezer, so you can skip buying the frozen box waffles, and make your own!

Freezing – Lay cooled waffles in a single layer on a baking tray and place in the freezer for a couple of hours until they are completely frozen. Transfer to an air tight container and freezer for up to 3 months.

Leftovers – If you don’t want to freeze the waffles, just place them in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Place waffles in the toaster or microwave to reheat and serve on busy mornings.
