I was asked to share this with the blog Food With Kid Appeal and I am more than happy to! While I am always interested in things that I like to eat, I am always on the hunt for things that the kids will like. It is even more challenging now that we are doing our gluten free trial. Waffles are one of those things that are quick to put together and are always good. Chocolate adds an extra specialness to them. Ethan loved them and for him to love something makes me very happy :). Shaylee said she liked the other ones better but I suggested making marbled ones some day and both the kids cheered. Yay!
Chocolate Brownie Waffles
1/3 cup coconut flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp cocoa powder
3 tbsp maple sugar or honey (mix sugar with dry and honey with wet)
4 tbsp melted butter or coconut oil (or a combination of the two)
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the eggs, one by one, mixing thoroughly between each egg. Add vanilla and melted butter (and honey, if using) and continue mixing until well combined. Let sit 5-10 minutes to allow the coconut flour to absorb the wet ingredients. Let your waffle iron heat during this time. Cook as per iron instructions or to desired doneness. Serve with your favorite toppings. We used real maple syrup but whipped cream and/or berries would be a nice addition. So would a chocolate sauce or banana slices, or a combination of all of the above! It would make a nice dessert as well as a main dish.
