Sunday Morning Waffles

This morning I decided to change up our usual pancake breakfast, and make waffles instead. Actually, I've been wanting to do tofu scramble, but for some reason I'm scared of scrambling tofu.....maybe I'll try it soon. Besides, I actually prefer a sweet breakfast to a savory one, so I always have good intention to make tofu scramble and the like, but I always wake up craving something sweet instead.

This morning I went all out with the "sweet" theme and made Chocolate Chip Waffles topped with more chocolate chips and powdered sugar with pure maple syrup for dipping. And, you'll notice I added in a some strawberries on the side to "healthify" it a bit!!

Chocolate Chip Waffles
1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
2 Tbs unrefined sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup canola oil
1 1/4 cup plain rice milk
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips

Preheat waffle iron, and spray with cooking spray to prevent first waffle from sticking. In a large bowl combine dry ingredients and mix well. Add wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Pour about 1/2 cup waffle batter onto hot waffle iron and spread to edges. Cook according to directions on your waffle iron. Once waffles are finished sprinkle with powdered sugar and top with more chocolate chips.

My kids, like yours, prefer plain pancakes, and get upset when I try to get too fancy......chocolate chip pancakes (and waffles) however, never get whined about!!!
