I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Ours was fun. We did a little hiking, a little relaxing, a little eating, and of course went to my son’s flag football game. Also this weekend, I finally saw Bridesmaids for the first time. I know, I am pretty much the last one on the planet to see it, but what can you do? It was hilarious! I am still laughing when I think about parts of it 🙂
So being that today is the first Monday of the month, do you know what that means? Secret Recipe Club reveal day! This month I was assigned No Reason Needed. This blog is hosted by a funny mother of two. There were all sorts of recipes to choose from, but in the end I was suckered in with the Chocolate Waffles.
These were incredible, but I like sweet for breakfast. My 7 year old was also a huge fan. I topped mine with a little bit of whipped cream, and strawberries. My 7 year old liked syrup on his. I still have a couple in my freezer to toast up on a busy morning. I cut the recipe in half because there was only 2 of us. But I am giving you the full recipe below.
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup cocoa powder
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 Tbls sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 cups milk (I used almond milk)
- 4 eggs , separated
- 4 Tbls canola oil
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- Preheat waffle iron.
- In a large bowl whisk together flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl combine milk, egg yolks, and oil. Add milk mixture to flour, and stir until combined.
- In another bowl whisk egg white until you have soft peaks, about 3 minutes at medium speed. Fold egg whites into the batter. Finally, add in the chocolate chips.
- Spray waffle iron with non-stick spray. Pour in batter and cook until the light goes off, or about 4 minutes. Serve with whipped cream, strawberries, or syrup.
