Fluffy Belgian Chocolate Chip Waffles

Make all your breakfast dreams come true with this easy, fluffy belgian chocolate chip waffles recipe. These utterly delicious, scrumptions waffles are slightly crispy on the outside with a fluffy soft inside and mini chocolate chunks for some added sweetness to start your day.

Do you ever just wake up in the mornings and crave chocolate chip waffles? Just me? Okay, cool cool cool. Well This happened to me recently and I popped on my site to snag the recipe and realized I do not have one! Oh my, I was taken back. Like excuse me. How? Why? What? I knew this needed to change ASAP.

This recipe is classic, sweet, lightened up and you can say healthy-ish. They are made with oat milk, coconut sugar and safflower oil. However, don’t let these healthier ingredients fool you though, these babies are large and in charge.

They are thickkkkk, fluffy and slightly buttery and no, they are not made with butter. But, using a butter stick to rub on the waffle maker or non-stick butter spray gives it that crisp golden buttery exterior. Serve these with your favorite fruit, jams, peanut butter, syrup and powdered sugar for the ultimate breakfast treat. UGH, they are SO good.

What Makes Them Fluffy?

I am going to let you in on a little secret that is the key and most important thing that makes them, well them and just that dang good.

When preparing the waffle batter, make sure to separate your egg yolks from your egg whites. Beating the egg whites until they are bubbly and frothy, then mixing them in after is sure to give them that soft fluffy inside you are looking for.

Now, not to toot my own horn, but these are hands down the best belgian chocolate chip waffles, no if’s and’s or but’s. Trust me, I do not make this claim lightly. I think I've made these almost every weekend since I created the recipe. These are sure to be a crowd pleaser for adults and children, they are such a staple you must have on your brunch or breakfast spread.
