Breakfast Bliss: Chocolate Chip Waffles
On Monday I brought you a patriotic dessert that is pretty enough to use as a centerpiece and so tasty it'll be gone within moments of biting in. Today I bring you one last recipe because if your family is anything like ours we LOVE to do family breakfast.
So what is my favorite? You ask.
Chocolate Chip Waffles
You will need:
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups fat free milk
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg yolk
1 large egg white
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate minichips
To make them:
1) Coat a waffle iron with cooking spray, and preheat.
2) Lightly spoon flour into drying 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.
3) Spoon about 1/2 cup batter onto hot waffle iorn, spreading batter to edges. Cook 3-5 minutes or until done; repeat procedure with remaining batter.
You can serve these plain or, if you are a "dessert first" kind of person, top them with vanilla ice cream and chocolate minichips. You could also stay festive for the Fourth of July with blueberry and stawberry syrups. :)
Yield: 6 servings (serving size = 1 waffle)
As you gather around the table with family and friends you love, I pray that you will first celebrate the One who taught you how to love (1 John 4:19). After all, it is because of freedom in Him that we truly have a fulfilling life.
God bless and happy eating!
