FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE CHIP PEANUT BUTTER WAFFLES



Flourless waffles are the perfect replacement for a familiar breakfast food. Peanut butter makes for waffles that are both light and crispy, without needing any specialty ingredients or even low carb flours. I love the chocolate chips, but if you choose to omit them, you can make this recipe on a whim with common pantry staples.

MAKES 4 WAFFLES (8 SERVINGS)

8 large eggs

1 cup peanut butter, no sugar added

¼ cup erythritol

4 tablespoons (½ stick) butter, melted

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

¾ cup sugar-free chocolate chips

HOW TO MAKE:

  1. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, peanut butter, erythritol, butter, baking powder, and vanilla. With an electric hand mixer, beat at medium speed until smooth.
  2. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  3. If you have time and want springier waffles, let the batter rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Grease a Belgian waffle maker with butter or oil. Preheat according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  5. Stir the batter, then immediately pour one-quarter of the batter evenly into the waffle maker. Cook according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Usually, waffles are done when steam is no longer coming out, 4 to 5 minutes.
  6. Repeat with the remaining batter to make 4 waffles total.

 

TIPS & VARIATIONS

• Stir the batter each time before adding to the waffle maker so that the chocolate chips are uniformly distributed.

• Try other add-ins! Blueberries, chopped nuts, or hemp seeds all work well.

• For a dairy-free version, use coconut oil instead of butter.

• This recipe makes 4 large round Belgian waffles. The number of waffles will vary depending on the size and shape of your waffle maker, so be mindful that a serving is ⅛ of the entire recipe.
