Healthy Chocolate Waffle Recipe
If you’ve tried my healthy waffles recipe but prefer something sweeter, you’ll love this chocolate option.
My healthy chocolate waffles are delicious and full of goodness too — the chocolate flavour comes from magnesium-rich cacao powder, and there’s maple syrup for the perfect amount of sweetness.
The best part? You can enjoy these healthy chocolate waffles for breakfast OR dessert.
