I am a huge fan of waffles and can’t resist indulging in them for breakfast. Usually, I’ll make plain buttermilk waffles, but on occasion, I like to add chocolate chips into the batter. The result is amazing! They’re delicious, easy to make, and ready in a jiffy.

I add some chia seeds to mine to increase the fiber and protein content, but that is completely optional. If you have kids, it is a great way to introduce little ones to chia seeds.

Waffle Ingredients

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

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup whole chia seeds, optional
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ cups buttermilk
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips

Instructions

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

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

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

Remove the waffles once they have cooked in the iron and place them on a wire rack. Top with maple syrup or fresh fruit. (If you want to enjoy them for dessert, top them with chocolate syrup and ice cream. Sprinkles are a fun option, too!)

Waffle Notes

Waffles are a breakfast treat that can be made ahead and enjoyed later. Simply follow the directions and cook the waffles. Once they are done, allow them to cool completely on a wire rack. Place the cooked and cooled waffles in a freezer-safe zip top-bag, remove all of the excess air, seal, and freeze.

When you want to have one, remove it from the freezer bag and pop it in your toaster. It may take a few cycles in the toaster to get them nice and crisp.
