I have wanted to buy a waffle maker for a long time because I really wanted to make this recipe for Cocoa Waffles Recipe.
Actually, I want to try lots of recipes, but I didn’t want a machine just for waffles, since I don’t make them every day. A multifunction device would be ideal.
Well, I couldn’t find one that I could use… But I discovered some excellent wafer pans that can be used in the oven or in the microwave.
I confess that I prefer to use them in the oven. But when time is short, it is very handy to use the microwave and in a few minutes, you have delicious waffles!
I particularly like this recipe for cocoa waffles, because besides being relatively healthy, it has that yummy taste. And let’s be honest, is there anything better than a good sweet without the feeling of guilt?!
I enjoy sweet breakfast food, especially if it’s pancakes or waffles for breakfast to start the day off right! And I make them mostly on weekends.
And you, do you also enjoy this type of breakfast?
Let’s check the step-by-step of this sweet recipe?
COCOA WAFFLES RECIPE (APPROX 1 TO 2 UNITS):
- 1 cup spelt flour
- 1/2 cup milk (or plant-based drink)
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 cup brown sugar or honey
- Salt to taste
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup raw cocoa powder (or powdered chocolate)
- 1 csp baking powder
- Granola to taste (I used salty granola from Agita Kalorias)
- 1 handful of raspberries
- Start by preheating the oven to 180º.
- In a bowl, mix the spelt flour, salt, and sugar and mix the ingredients.
- Add the milk or plant-based drink and olive oil and fold it well until you achieve a homogeneous batter.
- Add the cocoa powder and the baking powder and incorporate them into the previous batter.
- Add the egg and mix.
- Grease the waffle pan a little, to ensure the batter doesn’t stick to it.
- Pour the mixture into the pan and bake for about 20 minutes or until they have a cake-like consistency.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool a little.
- Unmold and serve with a handful of raspberries on top and some salted granola.
Suggestion: Use coconut oil, if you prefer it. I like to vary so I used olive oil.
The sugars are also adjustable, as always. A good bet is to replace them with apple puree.
Regarding the granola, I like to contrast the cocoa with something sweeter and my suggestion is the lavender granola from Agita Kalorias. But you can use the granola you like best.
You can also add some orange zest to the cocoa waffles batter or even add a plain yogurt spoon on top.
About the fruit, you know already: it’s up to your taste. You can use seasonal fruit, for example. I like to use mango, kiwi, or tangerines. It tastes great!
