Healthy Chocolate Waffles

I am not a morning person! I am so happy when I get to wake up at 9AM without an alarm, can slowly work my way out of bed, to be greeted with a hot cup of coffee. Then after 30 minutes or so to get my blood moving, I like to make a nice breakfast for the family to enjoy. Oh the perfection of it!

But that is not how most mornings go!!! Usually I am awakened by a screaming alarm or screaming kids about 6:45AM. Yuck! Then they are starving, so I grudgingly throw some cold cereal into a bowl for them while making myself a much needed cup of coffee.

After many tears and fights, I am able to get them dressed and teeth brushed in time to get to school. After which I collapse onto the couch at 8:20AM wishing I could just go back to bed and hope tomorrow will be better.

However, on the weekends I insist on at least one morning where I get my perfect morning (or at least close to it). And I insist on the family eating a real breakfast together. A couple weeks ago the kids were asking for chocolate chip pancakes, which (surprisingly) I am not a huge fan of.

I love chocolate, but I don’t feel like pancakes can stand up to hot gooey chocolate and they end up too mushy for me. Instead, I tweaked my favorite waffle recipe and came up with these Healthy Chocolate Waffles and we love them!

These Healthy Chocolate Waffles are our new favorite weekend breakfast. We cover them with loads of whipped cream and fresh strawberries (gotta get a serving a fruit and some dairy in there). And the kids are happy to wait for me to wake up before making breakfast if they know I am making them!
