Filled with the flavors of chocolate covered strawberries, this delicious morning meal could double as dessert. We created a diet-friendly take on the classic breakfast staple.
The base of these waffles consists of whole wheat flour, unsweetened cocoa powder and baking powder combined with milk and chocolate chips melted with light butter. After cooking the batter in a waffle iron, we complete the meal by topping the finished product with fresh strawberries. The end result is a beautiful presentation that is sure to impress to your Valentine.
