I thought I’d feel more guilty about writing this post. Actually, I thought I’d feel guiltier about eating the waffles that this post is about. Guess what? I don’t. In fact, I’m really just planning the next time that I can make these for an at-home brunch.
I crave brownies often – something I’m sure I have in common with most people. But for some reason, my brownies are never as good as my mom’s. And plus I don’t even like to make them, I'd much prefer mixing up a batch of cookies instead. Every once in a while though, I do get the urge to make a batch of brownies, more for the batter-licking than anything.
I don't think it's normal for a person to wake up on a Sunday afternoon craving brownies. I popped online to do some browsing and found edible perspective’s enticing recipe. To be honest, I spent way too long drooling over her extensive collection of breakfast recipes before deciding to recreate this one. I don’t know how she ever thought of such a thing, but a chocolate waffle has to be the best idea ever. Off to the kitchen we went.
Our first batch was a bit on the overdone side. Lesson learned: it’s a good idea to take the waffle out about 30 seconds before the waffle maker says it’s done. The texture firms up just the right amount as it cools.
Gluten-free and low in sugar, these chocolate waffles aren’t as sinful as they appear. They do look a little spooky – appropriate for this time of the year.
Next time, I’ll be topping them with macerated berries and a healthy mountain of whipped cream. [Because obviously, the chocolate shavings and chocolate syrup just weren't enough.]

Hi! do you mean brown rice flour or sweet rice flour? Thanks!
Hello! We make our own flour in our blender and for this specific recipe we had dry basmati rice on hand so we made flour out of that. Brown rice flour would work perfectly for this though! :) Thanks for your question!
