Choco-Mint Waffles


Choco-Mint Waffles, originally uploaded by Vegan Year.

Who, apart from my fussy children, can resist the combination of chocolate and mint in a waffle! I have added Cocoa Nibs for a crunch and so you can pretend they are good for you, antioxidants, right?? If you want to make these as a dessert waffle, just serve with some Vanilla or Chocolate non dairy Icecream, a drizzle of chocolate ganache, and a sprig of mint as garnish, mmmmm.

Choco-Mint Waffles
Makes Six 8” Waffles @ ⅔ Cup batter each

2 Cups Soy Milk
2 teaspoons Apple Cider Vinegar

¾ Cup Sugar
¼ Cup Oil
1 teaspoon Mint Extract
¼ teaspoon Vanilla Extract

2 Cups Plain Flour
¼ Cup Cocoa Powder
2 teaspoons Baking Powder

2 Tablespoon Cocoa Nibs, optional

In a large bowl combine the soymilk and vinegar. Stand 5 minutes to curdle.
Add in the sugar through vanilla extract, and whisk to combine.
Sift the flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder into this bowl, and whisk until combined. Stir in the cocoa nibs, if using.
Stand while your waffle machine heats, according to instructions for your machine.
Spray the inside plates of your waffle machine with nonstick spray prior to making each waffle and cook according to the directions for your machine and your preference.

Your kids really don't like chocolate and mint?! They are crazy, lol! Or just very healthy :-)

I haven't had much computer time lately so I am behind on posts--can't wait to catch up. I love the new look of the blog, though! Or maybe you made the change a while ago...sorry if that is the case. Either way, it looks great!
