Chocolate Waffles!

Somehow I stumbled across this recipe for chocolate waffles (probably doing a search for kefir and sourdough waffles) and thought what a special treat they would make! I modified them just a bit to suit my taste and what I had on hand. With Valentine's Day coming up, it might be the perfect occasion to make these for someone special. Be forewarned, they are very rich and you will want to have something not sweet and chocolatey to go with them (bacon, anyone?) ♥

 Chocolate Sourdough Waffle Recipe
The night before you want waffles for breakfast, mix well and cover:
4 oz sourdough starter*
1 cup kefir (or buttermilk)
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour

8 to 12 hours later, mix in a separate bowl:
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp sea salt
pinch cinnamon
½ cup coconut sugar (or 4 packets powdered stevia)

In separate small bowl, mix:
4 Tbs melted and cooled coconut oil
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract

Mix the contents of all three bowls together and stir well. The batter should get nice and bubbly/frothy.

Gently stir in ½ cup mini dark chocolate chips. Pour batter into hot greased waffle iron and cook according to waffle iron's directions. They would be super good with homemade whipped cream (not too sweet!) on top. Enjoy!

*For those of you who don't have sourdough starter, you could just leave it out and omit the overnight step. Or you could come by and get your very own starter from me ♥
