Whole-Wheat Brownie Waffles

Whole-Wheat Brownie Waffles Overview

These Whole-Wheat Brownie Waffles make a great breakfast or dessert, that’s healthy, easy, and super quick to make. Give yourself (and your loved ones) a sweet treat next weekend morning! It’ll be hard not to love and crave for more!

I came to create this recipe once I received a waffle maker as a Christmas present. Not to leave this piece of kitchen equipment to waste, I had to make some use out of it. I have been trying different variations, but this one is the best so far. But if you don’t possess a waffle-maker, no worries! You can also make simple pancakes with the same dough, and they’ll be just as delicious!

I love how easy and quick it is to prepare these Whole-Wheat Brownie Waffles on a slow weekend morning. They are great to enjoy them with a cup of hot drink, like coffee or tea, while contemplating the life passing by outside the window.

In our case, you’ve got waffles are topped with agave syrup, bananas, and some crushed chocolate. However, they would very well go with jams, maple syrup, fresh berries or/and any fruit of your choice, as well as nut butter. Bon appetit
