chocolate chip coconut waffles

coconut chocolate chunk waffles
The only waffles I ever knew growing up were of the frozen variety. A waffle iron, what's that?  

It  was  my other half , Justin that convinced me I needed a waffle iron in my life. Let me tell you, he was so right, I had no idea what I was missing out on all those years. There's just something about making your own waffles that is super satisfying. The  best part about making waffles at home is deciding what's going in the batter.  When I received my Pacific Foods Coconut Milk I absolutely knew I had to make something with chocolate (I mean coconut + chocolate together is heaven), chocolate and coconut in waffle form, now that's a winner!

Homemade waffles are just as easy to throw together as homemade pancakes. If you don't have a waffle iron you can just as easily use these same flavors in your favorite pancake recipe.

Pacific Foods Organic Vanilla Coconut Milk worked beautifully in this recipe. Pacific Foods has always been a brand we use often at home, the soups are my go to for a quick lunch at work and one of my favorite non dairy milks for baking is their oat milk. 

The Coconut from Pacific Foods is not only Carrageenan Free, but also Vegan, Gluten Free, Soy Free, Corn Free, Wheat Free + Yeast Free.

If you are making these for one and trying to figure out it you should invite a friend over or devour all 8 waffles, no worries, these waffle freeze beautifully and can be reheated in your toaster or toaster oven.

Pure Maple Syrup is a must with these waffles - I prefer Grade B for it deeper and more complex taste.

Pour the wet into the dry and mix with a rubber spatula until just mixed, lumpy is okay.

Spray top + bottom of waffle iron / waffle grids with cooking spray. Pour 1/3 cup of waffle batter into each "well" / grid of your waffle iron (mine cooks up 2 waffles at a time- you may need to use 2/3 cup depending on your personal waffle iron.
