Cocoa Waffles with Chocolate Chips

I have three children. Two that are pretty decent eaters, they have greatly improved since being  small children... and one eight year old who will not touch anything green. UGH! So meals can be a royal pain. I try really hard to not feed my family preservatives, dyes, garbage, etc. but it's challenging. These waffles I have adapted from this recipe here and my son LOVES them. I make enough to have batter for two days. I don't use cow's milk, so I substitute in organic soy milk and to sneak in some veggies, I use Juice plus Complete Protein powder, it has all of that stuff that he won't eat in it and he never knows! HA!

Start with the cast of characters


  • 1 cup soy milk or buttermilk (I make my own buttermilk with the soy, adding in tsp of vinegar to the soy milk, let it sit while you get the dry ingredients together)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/2 tsp  salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup Juice Plus Cocoa Protein Powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Mix your dry ingredients together in a bowl. 

Mix in to your dry ingredients, your one egg, buttermilk and melted butter. Then add in your chocolate chips. Scoop onto your waffle iron, I set the timer for 6 minutes and clean up my mess. 

VOILA! Delicious chocolate breakfast heaven!

  1. These sounds delish! I have heard great things about Juice Plus, I might have to break down and give it a try. I have a little boy who won't eat all his veggies. :)
