I absolutely love waffles. In fact, I think I make better waffles than pancakes. I’ve achieved a pretty solid waffle recipe which you can check out here! However, over the summer my brother requested that I make chocolate chip waffles. This brought back memories of my early days (I make myself sound old), where we used to have EGGO Waffles for breakfast and as an afternoon school snack.
Life became even better when EGGO released chocolate chip waffles. Life. Was. Good. But why live in the past? Nostalgia is great but I want some choco-chip waffles now! And naturally, I have to share the recipe with you guys! So here you go, my chocolate chip waffles recipe.
I love brunch. I am not a breakfast person really, but when it comes to brunch I am all for it. It’s funny because the other day I was having a conversation with someone who did not believe in the idea of brunch. “It’s a made-up word!” he claimed. I immediately cut him out of my life because I don’t need that kind of energy. Just kidding.
Brunch is sacred to me. In London “Brunch is a lifestyle!” as one friend explained. In Calgary, brunch is good but not great (I said it!). I prefer to make it at home. In my house, Sunday brunch is a ritual. When we were younger my mom would lovingly make us porridge (a treat at the time), french toast, omelets, etc. Nowadays I am responsible for making the decadent dishes like chocolate chip waffles. And other recipes which you can check out here.
My chocolate chip waffles recipe is super simple. I take the same recipe for my brown butter waffles, minus the brown butter and add chocolate chips instead. This recipe makes 12 waffles in total. Which sadly isn’t enough! Or maybe it is (it’s not!). I also use quick-rise yeast (instant yeast) so that we don’t have to wait hours and hours for the dough to rise. There is already chocolate chips added in the dough, and I add extra to the batter that is already in the waffle iron. Because if you are living life without adding extra chocolate chips – are you actually even living bro?
