Chocolate Brownie Waffles

Chocolate Brownie Waffles

I love getting new cookbooks – it’s so fun to flip through ’em + decide what recipe to make first. My newest cookbook arrival was especially exciting: the gorgeous Breakfast For Dinner, written by food blogger husband-and-wife-team Lindsay Landis + Taylor Hackbarth, who I know personally through the Nashville food blogging network. I’ve been lucky to sample lots of their baked goods + sweets in the past, so I was so excited to read through their cookbook + try out their recipes myself!

After flipping through all the beautifully-photographed recipes, I settled on a decadent, over-the-top sweet: Chocolate Brownie Waffles. While I normally prefer savory dishes, my sweet tooth has been out in full force lately, so I decided to treat it to something special. So, how did the waffles turn out? Amazing! They’re rich, fluffy, + full of awesomely chocolatey flavor. The recipe originally called for them to be served with a sweetened blackberry sauce, but I wanted the chocolate to be the star of the dish, so I accompanied them simply with whipped cream + fresh strawberries. And it was perfect – I gobbled these up as an afternoon treat, + then, I confess, I made them again the next day for lunch!

For the full recipe, hope over to Cooks + Books + Recipes, where I’m guest posting today!

I am so in love with that cookbook! I haven’t tried these waffles yet, but I can’t wait to. I’d serve mine with strawberries and whipped cream too I think…or maybe a scoop of ice cream :)

Ooh, it would be SO good with some ice cream – like a brownie sundae meets waffles. SWOON!

Lindsay and Taylor did such a great job with the book, it’s become a firm favourite. As soon as I saw this recipe, I knew I’d have to go and buy a waffle iron so I could make it!

Kathryn, I don’t own a waffle iron either, so I asked a generous neighbor/friend to lend us hers because I *had* to try this recipe! =) not only am I totally in love with this recipe, now I know I need a waffle iron of my own!

so good. SO FREAKING DELICIOUSLY GOOD looking. I made the mistake of reading this post before I ate breakfast. my paleo muffin is looking rather sad, now.

Looks awesome!!! And yes, I am semi jealous!

7 Leah | So, How's It Taste? April 18, 2013 at 9:51 am

Yes, yes, and yes! This sounds awesome and I know if it came from Lindsay & Taylor it has to be. And it’s another excuse to have brownies for breakfast! 😉

Hi Amy!

How are you doing? I hope you are well. From the tone of this post, you sound wonderful. These waffles sound fantastic, and they look so tempting. Great job on the pix! I love breakfast. I think it really is my favorite meal. I am going to have to get the book. Sold!

I’d love these with berries and cream too. They look so beautiful!

13 Rachel @ Baked by Rachel April 18, 2013 at 3:49 pm

I’ve never had a waffle I didn’t like and I absolutely would love these :)

14 Kristin W April 18, 2013 at 5:10 pm

Ha! Amy, you SO should have made these in the waffle boat waffle iron! These, filled with a scoop of really good vanilla ice cream? OMG!

15 amy April 18, 2013 at 5:15 pm

I know, right?! That’s part of the reason I’m still hanging on to the waffle boat iron – i want to give it a try before I give it back, ha! =) Thank you again SO much for lending me the waffle irons. I promise I’ll deliver ’em back to you soon!

16 Kristi @ MSFK April 18, 2013 at 5:17 pm

Chocolate waffles for breakfast…come to mama! Those are incredible sounding! I would like 2 piled high with strawberries and cool whip please :-)

18 Nicole @ Young, Broke and Hungry April 18, 2013 at 10:04 pm

I have been wanting to get my hands on Breakfast for Dinner since it came out. These brownie waffles need a scoop of salted caramel ice cream in the middle!

19 Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious April 19, 2013 at 11:35 am

I would gobble these up no problem for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

20 Georgia @ The Comfort of Cooking April 19, 2013 at 2:51 pm

This looks like my kind of waffle! Except mine would have HEAPS of whipped cream and strawberries, heh! Wonderful recipe, Amy.

21 Jessica@AKitchenAddiction April 19, 2013 at 4:18 pm

These look delicious, I’ve been debating on buying a waffle maker but I’m running out of place to store appliances!

25 amy April 21, 2013 at 1:21 pm

I hear ya! We’ve run out of room for appliances, too, so I don’t have a waffle maker – I just borrowed a friend’s for this. =) Now I want one, though!

26 Jeff April 21, 2013 at 5:15 pm

Brownie waffles?! Ugh. I want a waffle iron. :(

I didn’t even know that chocolate waffles were a thing! Or brownie waffles. Aww, man. This stinks!

I don’t think I need to say this but they look amazing. :)
