Chocolate Coffee Waffles

Chocolate Coffee Waffles

Decadent chocolate and coffee waffles are only made better with a healthy pour of coffee maple syrup.


  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened plain almond milk

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1/3 cup maple syrup

  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats

  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal

  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar

  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee

  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips, plus more for topping

  • Strawberries, for topping

  • 1 1/4 cups maple syrup

  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon instant coffee


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the almond milk and lemon juice and let set for 5 minutes to curdle.

  2. Add the coconut oil, vanilla and maple syrup; whisk to combine.

  3. In a separate medium bowl, add the cocoa powder, flour, oats, flaxseed meal, salt, baking powder, sugar and instant coffee. Whisk to combine.

  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix well until incorporated, then fold the dark chocolate chips into the mixture.

  5. Let the batter rest as the waffle iron preheats.

  6. Once the waffle iron is ready, spray with coconut oil (or nonstick cooking spray) and scoop on about a third of the batter.

  7. Cook according to the waffle iron instructions. While the waffle cooks, start on the coffee maple syrup.

  8. Combine the maple syrup and coffee in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, whisking until the mixture comes to a boil.

  9. Reduce heat to medium-low and let cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  10. Strain with a fine-mesh strainer; serve hot.

  11. Top waffles with berries and a generous amount of coffee maple syrup.
