Chocolate Gingerbread Waffles

One of the things we came to love this year were waffles. Whether we were out at a restaurant and saw waffles on the menu (we’d always order them!) or decided to make a batch or two, waffles were always on our mind. My husband is more of a savory waffle lover, so he’s a fan of my Savory Cheddar Sage Waffles. I’m torn between traditional Belgian Waffles or these Hazelnut & Coconut Whole Wheat Waffles – I like them sweet!

A great compromise are these Chocolate Gingerbread Waffles and although they sound sweet, they’re not sweet enough to think about dessert. A touch of molasses and a couple tablespoons of cacao powder gives these waffles their gorgeous color – but they also are the only sweeteners in this recipe. So it lends itself to drawing it in syrup and powdered sugar like I did here or can easily be topped with a poached egg and bacon for a savory/sweet breakfast or brunch item. Whichever way you go, these waffles will steer you always in the correct way!
