Chocolate Chip Waffles

Last weekend I really had a craving for chocolate chip waffles, so after our grocery store run and a trip to Trader Joe's we set out to make this recipe for more of a brunch than breakfast. Oddly enough the closest Trader Joe's to us is 40 minutes away, so unless we're in the area already it's not worth the trip, so last Sunday was the first time I had ever shopped at a TJ's. I picked up a few items that I've never seen in any of the grocery stores were usually shop at and some of those ingredients will be making an appearance soon in other blogs!

These waffles helped to satisfy the waffle craving and the leftovers were easy to freeze and reheat during the subsequent mornings when we wanted a quick breakfast. Although Dave wasn't initially as enthusiastic about the waffles, he thought they were light and airy, not too sweet, but chocolaty. The original recipe added maple syrup into the batter, but I preferred just to use it on top of the waffle.

Recipe from Kristine's Kitchen.

-1 1/2 cups white whole-wheat flour
-1/2 cup all-purpose flour
-2 tablespoons cornstarch
-1 teaspoon baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon baking soda
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-2 large eggs
-1 1/2 cups buttermilk
-1/2 cup milk
-1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
-3 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled slightly
-1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
-Maple syrup for serving

In a large bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients -- white whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the remaining wet ingredients -- eggs, buttermilk, milk, and vanilla. Whisk in the melted butter until well combined with the other ingredients.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until just combined into a batter. Set aside for 10-15 minutes while the waffle iron preheats.

Stir in the mini chocolate chips just before pouring into the waffle iron. Spray the waffle iron with a light layer of cooking spay and cook the waffles according to the manufacturer's instructions. You can keep the waffles warm in a 200 degree oven while you cook the remaining waffles. We made 10 waffles squares using this recipe.
