These Chocolate Chip Waffles are great for breakfast or brunch. Top them with homemade chocolate sauce and sliced bananas. They're also freezer-friendly and easy to warm up so they're perfect for meal prep!


  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp avocado oil
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 ¼ cup buttermilk (see notes for vegan buttermilk)
  • 1 ½ cup all-purpose flour (I used gluten-free flour blend)
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • Cooking spray or butter for cooking
  • Optional garnish: maple syrup, chocolate sauce, berries, bananas, nut butter, yogurt


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, avocado oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and sea salt.
  2. Whisk in almond milk.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, and cinnamon if using.
  4. Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined.
  5. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  6. Heat up your waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  7. Spray the waffle iron with cooking spray or brush with butter and pour your waffle batter in.
  8. Cook for 2-4 minutes, depending on how strong your waffle iron is and how dark you want the waffles to be.
  9. Repeat with the rest of the batter and add more oil or butter as needed.
  10. Serve waffles with maple syrup, chocolate sauce, berries, bananas, nut butter, or yogurt.


Buttermilk: To make dairy-free buttermilk, measure 1 cup of almond milk, remove 1 tbsp + 1 tsp, and add 1 tbsp + 1tsp of white vinegar, apple cider vinegar, or lemon juice. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes until slightly thicker and curdled.

Keep waffles warm: To keep your finished waffles warm while you cook the rest of the batter, preheat your oven to 150F, add the waffles to a baking sheet, and keep them in the oven until ready to eat.

Storing: Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days or in the freezer for 3-6 months.

Reheat: Reheat in the oven at 300F from the fridge or freezer until warm or in a toaster.
