Breakfast special

The following recipe could quite possibly be one of the most deliciously decadent, yet splendidly easy-to-make breakfast staples you'll ever try.

I took my first bite, and all I could think of after that was its similarity to an incredible chocolate torte dessert my mum makes (which I'll have to ask her about when she comes to visit next week)... Mmmm, a taste of Heaven for sure!

OK, let's get to the recipe already, before I start going on about the flavour and texture... Seriously!

Brownie Waffles – Publix Supermarket ad cut-out

Prep time: 30 min.
cooking time: approx. 1 minute per waffle

  • ¼ cup butter (I like to use Earth Balance's soy- and dairy-free buttery spread)
  • 2 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate, chopped (my fave is at least 70% cacao, but use whatever you like best!)
  • ½ cup Bob's Red Mill GF flour mix (or your own flour of choice)
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • ½ cup milk (I used So Delicious coconut milk brand)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla


1. In a small saucepan, combine butter and unsweetened chocolate. Stir over low heat until melted and smooth; set aside to cool slightly.

2. In a medium-size bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; make a well in the centre. In another bowl, beat eggs slightly. Stir in sugar, milk, vanilla, and melted chocolate mixture. Add egg mixture all at once to the flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy).

3. Pour about 1 ¼ cups batter onto grids of a preheated, lightly greased waffle maker. Close lid quickly; do not open until done. Bake about 1 minute, or until waffles are cooked through. (Waffles will not be crisp; do not overcook.) Carefully transfer to a wire rack to cool. Repeat w/ remaining batter.

Serve waffles plain, sprinkled w/ powdered sugar, peanut butter, or my personal favourite: a mix of Nutella and greek yogurt, topping them with fresh fruit.
