Has there ever been a better word combination than CHOCOLATE WAFFLES? I think not. This fluffy, rich chocolate waffle recipe may seem like a dessert, but they aren't overly sweet--making them the perfect unexpected breakfast item.

Easy Chocolate Waffle Recipe

  • Author: Melissa Griffiths - Bless this Mess
  • Total Time: 30 min
  • Yield: 6 large waffles 1x


Rich and fluffy chocolate waffles that aren't too sweet and make the perfect breakfast topped with buttermilk syrup, berries, and a little whipped cream.


  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup dutch-process cocoa
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups milk


  1. Preheat you waffle iron as directed.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl add the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Use a whisk to combine. Make a small well in the center of the dry ingredients.
  3. Add the eggs, oil, and milk to the well, and use the whisk to slowly combine the wet and dry ingredients. Stir well, until very few lumps remain.
  4. Pour the batter into your waffle iron according to manufacturers directions.
  5. When the waffle is done cooking, carefully place it on a wire rack to cool, taking care not to stack the waffles on top of each other. Repeat with remaining batter.
  6. Serve waffles hot with your favorite topping, such as buttermilk syrup, strawberries, and whipped cream.


  • These waffles are not a sweet dessert waffle, so the syrup and berries really make them great.
  • I would consider these a bit of a dark chocolate waffle. If you want less of a chocolate flavor, feel free to use 1/4 cup of cocoa powder and increase the all-purpose flour to 1 1/2 cups.
