This Chocolate Waffle Recipe is delicious, and it is gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free! A great option for brunch or breakfast for kids! Easy to make ahead of time and freeze. Top with maple syrup or your favorite toppings!

I am a fan of chocolate, and I realized I had never had chocolate waffles before! I wanted to create a recipe that was on the healthier side, and I would feel comfortable giving my kids for breakfast. That is why I chose to use gluten free flour, coconut cream & avocado oil, and coconut sugar. And they still taste really good!

For the gluten free flour, you can use any all-purpose GF flour. However, for my recipe I used 1 1/3 cup brown rice flour, 1/3 cup potato starch, and 1/3 cup tapioca starch. It is in the notes in the recipe if you want to use the same mixture. I prefer to mix my own because I avoid xanthan gum, but store bought is fine too. Just make sure it is all-purpose, which means it has some type of starch or xanthan gum in it. They help bind the gluten free flour together since there is no gluten and will help prevent baked goods from being dry. If you don’t add that those in there, the recipe will be slightly different.

When you make the waffles, use any waffle make you would like. I found a cute spider webbed waffle maker for Halloween and used black cocoa powder to make them extra dark. The recipe will work great in a traditional waffle maker as well. If you choose to use a cute mini waffle maker, I will suggest that you buy two of them. Otherwise, it will take a very long time to make all of the waffles! (Speaking from experience here…)

Serve the waffles with maple syrup or any topping you would like. Whipped cream and fresh fruit would be a delicious option! Or just eat them plain! And they would be easy to freeze so you can take out a few at a time. Putting some parchment paper in between them would prevent them from sticking together.
