Vegan Chocolate Chip Waffles

Vegan Chocolate Chip Waffles

These vegan chocolate chip waffles are so damn good. Crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, laced with melted chocolate chips.


Having made some of the best Vegan Belgian Waffles, which were super light, and also fluffy and crispy, I knew it was time to step it up a notch and take it to the next level.

This could only mean one thing, Vegan Chocolate Chip Waffles!

Using the same base recipe as used for our Vegan Belgian Waffles (which are a massive hit!) – we simply added some chocolate chips with a side of chocolate sauce for extra chocolate.

You can never have enough chocolate after all.

Vegan Chocolate Chips

Vegan chocolate chips are usually found in most stores – you may need to go for dark chocolate chips unless you know somewhere specialist to buy a lighter version.

However here is a list of plenty of vegan chocolate you could find and simply smash into small pieces!
