You can top this breakfast with chocolate chips and some flavored yogurt or go traditional with maple syrup and butter. (Or try peanut butter and applesauce!) They are a really great way to start the day.
1¼ cups whole wheat flour
½ cup cocoa powder
2 tbsp. sugar (optional)
1 tbsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
1¾ cups milk of choice
¼ cup butter, melted
¼ cup plain yogurt
1 tsp. vanilla
Chocolate chips, raspberries, yogurt to top (optional)
In a medium bowl stir together flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Make a well in centre of flour mixture; set aside.
In another medium bowl beat eggs slightly; stir in milk butter, yogurt, and vanilla.
Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy).
Pour 1 to 1 1/4 cups batter onto grids of a preheated, lightly greased waffle baker (use a regular or Belgian waffle baker). Close lid quickly; do not open until done.
Bake according to manufacturers directions. When done, use a fork to lift waffle off grid. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve warm.
