Chocolate Buckwheat Waffles with Juicy Berries
I've remade the typical syrup-doused waffle breakfast into a lower-sugar, fruit-forward, gluten-free, whole-grain plate with 273 fewer calories. In place of refined all-purpose flour, I go with gluten-free buckwheat flour, which adds 2.4g filling fiber per serving; strawberries add another 2.4g. Barely sweetened berries and yogurt replace maple syrup, slashing 18g added sugar per serving.

Buckwheat Belgian WafflesThe buckwheat flour adds an earthy, nutty flavor to these waffles, but it's also a flour that's heavy and dense.

Top the waffles with slightly warm maple syrup and fresh fruit. They're so dreamy you could serve them for breakfast or dessert.
