Whole wheat chocolate waffles

Making waffles, as well as pancakes, is something that I should do more often. My kids went crazy for these whole wheat chocolate waffles and to be honest I wish I had doubled the batch.

I did have a few leftover waffles, which I did freeze and had them on subsequent days, but not as many as I would have liked. Like pancakes, waffles freeze really well, so if you like to make some extra and freeze a few go ahead. It will save you some time later on.

I decided to make these whole wheat chocolate waffles with whole wheat pastry flour to increase the fiber content as well as coconut sugar, which its glycemic index is lower. I also used coconut oil instead of butter, since coconut oil is much healthier. Its saturated fat composition is different, as it gets digested differently in the body.

I also used Silk Unsweetened Almond milk. I don’t use dairy milk but normally almond, coconut or cashew milk. These are my favorite flavors and because they are super creamy with no added sugar, it is Non-GMO, and has no artificial colors, or flavors, I like to use them for myself and the kids. I also love the fact that is lactose free and it has 50% more calcium than dairy milk.

You can visit Silk’s page and learn more about Silk products, or if you like you can sign for their newsletter and receive coupons as well as their latest news here. They also have dairy free products, creamers, dairy free yogurt and much more. You will also find plenty of recipes in their website so go ahead and check them out.

I am planning to make different types of waffle recipes in the upcoming months. My kids love having them over the weekend. With a tall glass of almond milk they are good to go for a while until lunch. The fall is just around the corner so I am planning of making some pumpkin waffles. This time around I will probably make them gluten free so stay tuned for those.

I hope you get to make these whole wheat chocolate waffles. They are excellent for breakfast, as a treat or a mid-day snack for anyone.

Enjoy!

  1. Love that you’ve added coconut in it for the extra crunch. These make for some good breakfast too. Hope you had a great vacation and looking forward to more great recipes.

  2. Awesome recipe! I’ll be trying it out this weekend, but your recipe says to use egg, but it’s not in the ingredients list! Can you specify how many eggs you use so I can determine how much egg-substitute to use?

    Cheers!

  3. I adore oatmeal cookies…and these look so inviting with all the healthy elements!

  4. Hi Miryam,

    I have tried a few of your recipes and they are fantastic. I’m thinking of trying this too but might not be able to get shredded coconut. What can I substitute this with?

    And can I just use all olive oil?

    Cheers

  5. These cookies look super! I love that they are not as bad for you as other cookies but still taste great!

  6. I love the coconut here –yum!

  7. Oh wow..these look so good! I wonder if I can use my coconut sugar I just bought in these…

  8. Yum! These look fantastic! I’ve turned into such a cookie fan lately and oatmeal is always my fave!!!

  9. I love that you used whole wheat flour for these fabulous cookies, Miryam! They look so scrumptious. A good, soft oatmeal cookie is one of my favorite and you made it even better with the chocolate! Great recipe.

  10. Yum! Love oatmeal cookies plus chocolate. These look healthy and thats nice to eat a healthy cookie.
    Age is just a number Miryam, with our healthy eating hopefully we can knock off ten years each. Haha.

  11. These look great. I love oatmeal cookies.

  12. I remember time felt like it was crawling when I was in school, but the older I get, time seems to go faster and faster….how is that possible?? Lol! These cookies sound lovely! I especially love the coconut in them!

  13. Hi Miryam! It’s my first time making oatmeal cookies and I only have regular rolled oats instead of quick ones. Do you think they would turn out the same? Would I have to bake a little longer?

    Also, just wanted to say keep up the good work! Every time I make something from your blog, it turns out to be a huge hit! :)

    • I think they should be fine. Since there isn’t a large amount of oats I anticipate that the cookie will turn out OK. Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I am glad you like the recipes :-)

  14. Can I use all purpose flour instead of pastry flour.because I don’t have
