Brownie Waffles


I can’t decide if I’ve been obsessed with Dessert for Breakfast or if it’s really an obsession with Breakfast for Dessert.


Well, you say, it depends on what time of day said meal is being consumed. Although if this dessert/breakfast hybrid is eating all day long, the lines get a little blurred.

Now that I’ve shared with you my Pecan Pie French Toast, and Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes now I throw these Brownie Waffles at you.

I figured out that although I eat pretty well most of the week, I let myself eat whatever I want at my Saturday morning breakfast, making me want to get the most bang for my bite. Hence, breakfast and dessert crammed into one plate. I hope you don’t mind too much.

And if you want to get craaaazy, go ahead and top this with vanilla ice cream. And sprinkle it with bacon. But make sure and invite me over.

Brownie Waffles


  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup milk (divided in half)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs, divided
  • 1/4 cup sugar


  1. Preheat waffle iron according to manufacturers specifications.
  2. Get out three bowls.
  3. In the largest bowl, add the flour, baking powder,cocoa powder, and salt, stir.
  4. In a microwave safe bowl, add the chocolate chips and 1/2 cup milk. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir and repeat until melted. Add the remaining milk, vegetable oil, vanilla and only the yolks of the two eggs.
  5. Add the whites to the third bowl, along with the sugar. Whip with a hand mixer until soft peaks form, about 5 minutes.
  6. Make a well in the dry ingredients, add the chocolate milk mixture and stir until just combined. Gently fold into the egg whites until just incorporated.
  7. Cook in waffle iron according to manufacturers specifications, using butter flavored cooking spray if indicated.
  8. And I recommend topping with whipped cream, or ice cream, or frosting, or chocolate chips, or all of it.

    The dinner that I planned was a flop (I think) so we might be having these for dinner. Breakfast for dinner is the best fallback!

    Can I hug you? Because anyone that can do breakfast and dessert in one fell swoop has my undying adoration.

  12. Valerie @ From Valerie's Kitchen August 30, 2012 at 1:05 pm #

    I think this is a super clever dessert idea as well! I’m definitely thinking add some vanilla ice cream and I would be in heaven!

  13. Kiersten @ Oh My Veggies August 31, 2012 at 7:40 am #

    These definitely need ice cream. Ice cream is okay for breakfast because it’s made with milk. RIGHT?

    I’ll be over in just a minute, make sure you have a stack ready for me! This is surely the ultimate breakfast treat.

  17. Rebecca Dula January 28, 2013 at 6:48 pm #

    Could you make these as pancakes if you didn’t have a waffle iron?

  18. Meg February 27, 2013 at 9:00 pm #

    Named “Chelsea” by my 8-year old (don’t ask me why), this has become the all time favorite breakfast bar none. Real maple syrup, whipped cream, and sprinkles complete the picture. Love love love it.

      I love that! My daughter named cheddar “turtle cheese” and I have no idea why. I love the way kids brains work!
