I am going to tell you a little secret. My husband I don’t always agree on everything. Shocking right? And guess what subject we often don’t agree on? Food. Yup. Food. You see I eat mostly Paleo and he, well, he doesn’t. BUT that works to your benefit because we offer both options here at Cook with Me Darling! These Paleo Chocolate Waffles with Berries are a perfect example. I make mine Paleo, he doesn’t, but they are both amazing so no matter which option you choose, your breakfast will be delicious!
Cook With Me Darling is all about keeping the food real, healthy, delicious and EASY. We have a rule about using mixes or convenience foods: they have to just as delicious and just as healthy as when made from scratch or we don’t use them. For the Paleo version of these chocolatey waffles I use Birch Benders Paleo Waffle Mix (they also make an Organic Gluten Free Waffle Mix) For those of you that want a traditional waffle mix, my husband recommends Kodiak Cakes, but you can also use a favorite recipe from scratch as well. So how do we make them chocolate? So glad I asked…
How Chocolate Up Those Waffles:
To make chocolate waffles you simply add 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder per cup to your favorite waffle recipe or waffle mix!
I keep my waffles Paleo by topping with organic unsweetened shredded coconut. But my husband prefers whipped cream. Both can be drizzled with real maple syrup!
The Recipe: Paleo Chocolate Waffles with Berries!
What you need: a waffle maker, unsweetened cocoa powder , a good waffle mix: for the Paleo version I use Birch Benders Paleo Waffle Mix (they also make an Organic Gluten Free Waffle Mix) For a traditional waffle my husband uses Kodiak Cakes.
