Chocolate Waffle Cookies

Have you ever made a cookie in a waffle iron?  Well, I had never tried this.  Several years ago we visited family in North Dakota.  I had the most delicious cookies up there.  I asked for the recipe and OH MY!!!!  No wonder it was so delicious!!  Ever since I’ve always wanted to make cookies in a waffle iron but maybe just a bit more healthy.

 

This recipe is great because it uses whole wheat flour and it only makes about 3-4 waffle cookies.  In my world that’s a good thing, so you don’t meander into the kitchen and eat too many cookies.  This may vary depending on the size of your waffle iron.  They are indulgent enough for that special Valentine in your life!

Chocolate Waffle Cookies

(Healthier-ish)

  • 4 Tbsp Butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 4 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 1 cup Whole Wheat Flour

Preheat the waffle iron.  Cream together the butter, honey and brown sugar.  Add eggs and vanilla and stir to combine.  Slowly stir in the dry ingredients.  Once the waffle iron is hot pour about 1/4 cup-ish of batter in the waffle iron and gently spread it out a bit.  It will flatten more once the lid is on.  Cook for about 2-4 minutes until crisp on the edges.  Transfer to a cooling rack.

 

Cream butter, sugar and honey.

Add eggs and vanilla.

I just love my little mixer!

Hello!!  Add the cocoa and the flour.

Introduce the batter to a piping hot waffle iron.  You have to move quickly here so I wasn’t able to get a picture.  The batter is thicker than traditional waffle batter so try to spread it out a bit before closing the lid.

Transfer to a cooling rack.

My waffle iron just happens to make little heart shapes.  So I cut the cookies into individual little hearts.  These little cookies were super tasty right out of the iron.  But oh my, imagine the possibilities……Vanilla yogurt, ice cream, fresh berries, bananas, more chocolate.

Happy Valentine’s Day
