Healthy Fudge Brownie Waffles
Sometimes, you need a chocolate hit first thing in the morning, but we all know the guilt that often follows decadent breakfasts. Worry not, I’ve got your back! These brownie waffles are delicious, fudgy, (admittedly kinda dense), and guilt-free! They’re also easy to make and, chances are, you already have most if not all of what you need to make them lying around in your pantry.
1, 15.5 oz can Black beans, drained and rinsed well
1/2 cup Oats (any kind will do)
2 tbsp Cocoa powder
1/2 tsp Baking powder
Scant 1/2 cup Maple syrup
1/4 cup Applesauce, unsweetened
2 tsp Vanilla extract
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Salt
2/3 cup Semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup Shredded coconut or chopped walnuts (optional)
Get out your waffle iron and heat it up. Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine all the ingredients except for the chocolate chips and blend until smooth (you can also use a blender if you don’t have a food processor). Once your batter is smooth, pour it into a bowl and fold in your chocolate chips and any add-ins (coconut, walnuts, or anything else you want to throw in).
Pour half the batter into your waffle iron and cook until the steam stops or until your machine says it’s time to take the goods out. Because this is brownie batter and not waffle batter, it will be a little prone to splitting at the seams. I suggest using a pair of tongs and a spatula to slide the waffle onto a plate.
Enjoy right away as is, with berries, under ice cream, or refrigerate them and enjoy them later!
