Dark chocolate waffle
As you may have noticed by now, I love nothing more than playing around with ingredients, textures and flavours of the waffle kind. Still very much with my healthy cap on, I have managed to get the right balance of whole food real ingredients and classic favourites. These waffles have come out tasting like a good old fashioned brownie! Do try and you won't be disappointed.

the health boost tip
Nothing says treats as much as waffle and chocolate together! Using oat flour makes this waffle more dense and more nutritious. Using a good quality raw cacao powder offers the health benefit of no added or refined sugar and higher levels of antioxidants.
These waffles keep really well for a couple of days.
