Chia Chocolate Chip Waffles

Start your day with a delicious Chia Chocolate Chip Waffle. Top with maple syrup or fresh fruit and you have a delicious breakfast.

Waffles may not be the healthiest way to start the day, but they sure are a delicious way.  I added some chia seeds to mine to increase the fiber and protein content.  While not a large boost, it is a great way to introduce little ones to chia seeds.

Chia Chocolate Chip Waffles

Ingredients

To make these delicious waffles, you need the following ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup whole chia seeds
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Instructions

To make them, preheat your waffle iron. Start making the batter by mixing flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and chia seeds.

Chia Seeds

Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add egg, buttermilk, milk, oil, and vanilla, and mix until well blended. Add chocolate chips and mix.

Chocolate Chips in Waffle Batter

 Add batter to the waffle iron and bake according to the manufacturer’s directions.

Waffle Iron


It’s okay if the batter does not go all the way to the edges.  It will spread some as it bakes.

Baking with Chia Seeds

Sure, you can sprinkle chia seeds on foods to boost your nutrition, but did you know they’re easy to bake with as well? Chia seeds can be used as replacements for foods within recipes, such as eggs and fats, because of their binding and thickening characteristics. For a recipe with texture, such as cookies, muffins or breads with nuts, seeds, etc., whole chia seeds work great, whereas ground chia seeds are great for cakes, brownies, and other less-textured baked goods.
