I tell people my husband and I make the best waffles of all time and you know what… they roll their eyes. But, when they taste our utter-waffle-perfection, they realize—these waffles are no joke. They really are the best waffles of all time!
When my husband and I got married we registered for one of those fancy Belgian waffle irons (like this one). We were so happy when we ended up actually receiving it! This Belgian waffle iron is the best! It makes it with these deep grooves to hold all of the buttery, syrupy, whipped cream goodness that you put on top! The texture of a Belgian waffle iron makes a big difference; use one if possible! If you don’t own a Belgian waffle iron then be sure to add it to your next birthday or Christmas wish-list!

- 2 cups flour (we use white but have done half white and half wheat and it’s also tasty!)
- 1 cup milk (we use skim)
- 1 cup greek yogurt
- 4 eggs, separated! (This is important)
- 1 cup applesauce
- 1 Tb baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 heaping cup chocolate chips (be generous here)
- Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites. Then whip the egg whites with an electric mixer for a few minutes or until soft peaks form. **This step is so important! Do not skip it! Whipping the egg whites will make your batter and thus your waffle extra fluffy and delicious!
- In a large bowl, combine wet ingredients except for the whipped egg whites. (We are reserving the egg whites for last!
- Preheat that waffle iron. Ours takes about 5 minutes to preheat so go ahead and plug that iron in! We preheat ours to a medium high heat (preset 4) because we like our waffles to be golden brown.
- Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients; flour, baking powder, and salt.
- Now add a heaping cup of chocolate chips! (You can substitute the chocolate chips for blueberries, peaches, bananas, or whatever you’d like but chocolate chips are our absolute favorite!)
- Slowly fold the egg whites into your completed batter. We reserve the egg whites for last because we feel that it keeps the batter light and fluffy and makes for a better waffle.
- Spray your preheated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray and cook those babies up!
- When your waffle is done cooking, top it with butter, syrup, chopped bananas, and a dollop of fresh whipped cream.
Pretty delicious?? If you’re like me, “breakfast for dinner” is about to happen a lot more often now.
