Serve chocolate chip waffles for a super-indulgent breakfast perfect for holiday celebrations, from Mother's Day to Christmas morning.  These chocolate chip waffles are even better topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate minichips.

How to Make It

Step 1

Coat a waffle iron with cooking spray, and preheat.

Step 2

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Place milk, butter, vanilla, and egg yolk in a bowl; stir with a whisk. Add to flour mixture, stirring until blended. Beat egg white and sugar with a mixer at high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold into flour mixture. Fold in minichips.

Step 3

Spoon about 1/2 cup batter onto hot waffle iron, spreading batter to edges. Cook 3 to 5 minutes or until done; repeat procedure with remaining batter.

Delicious recipe. The whipped egg white makes the batter light and fluffy. Why go healthy...splurged and topped these yummy waffles off with homemade whipped cream and peanut butter sauce!

These were good, but nothing fantastic. Given the additional step of beating the egg white with sugar, I expected more. My family's favorite recipe is CL waffles with two-berry syrup... Truly delicious.

This recipe is worth the extra time to fold in the whipped egg whites. The waffles were amazing! They were crispy and not too sweet. We topped them off with fresh strawberries and whipped cream.

My kids love these. I froze the extras and they were gone in 2 days! I did use a blend of whole-wheat and white flour to make them a little healthier, but they are a nice option to Eggos as you can control what goes into them. I'm going to try the same dough with blueberries next time for my husband. Pop the leftovers in the toaster and voila! Hot fresh waffles anytime!

To make these even healthier, I substituted the butter with non-fat yogurt cheese (or you can use extra-virgin olive oil), whole-wheat flour, unsweetened mini-chips and low-sodium baking powder. Still delicious and less fat and calories.
