Chocolate Chip Waffles Recipe

Chocolate chip waffles are like inviting America’s favorite cookie to breakfast. These chocolate chip waffles will become a favorite.

It’s just hard to beat a big stack of buttermilk pancakes or waffles on weekend mornings, but when you turn them into these chocolate chip waffles you better believe you’ve got everyone’s attention. When I announce that chocolate chip waffles are almost ready, I can hear Little Buddy’s feet hit the floor running. Forget that sleepy-eyed look of other mornings, he’s raring to go.

The recipe comes together really quickly so if you are making these for a large crowd, you may want to go ahead and preheat a sheet pan in your oven at about 200º Fahrenheit. As waffles are ready, place them on the sheet pan and return them to the oven. When your ready to serve your family, just remove the sheet pan from the oven and place them on a platter for serving.

Here’s how I make them.

    • We wore our last waffle iron out. Little Buddy actually asked for one for Christmas! Can you tell how much he loves waffles?

  2. We just found a waffle maker at a yard sale last weekend, been looking for a recipe to try it out. I think I just found it. Looks yummy.

  3. I *need* a waffle iron. Always something! We grew up having waffles every so often after church with another family – SO good.

    • My son went into waffle deprivation mode late last year when our last one went kaput. Ours is a kitchen staple! 🙂

  4. Beautiful photo. Those look so good!

  5. We’re big waffle fans here. I usually mix in fruit. Can’t believe that I haven’t mixed in chocolate yet!! Yum!

  10. Mmm, I wish I was eating breakfast at your house this morning! Yum!

  11. Once we bought a waffle maker, we went crazy making big batches of waffles (freezing the extras). My kids would absolutely adore this chocolate chip version.

    • I love making big batches and freezing them, Dara. We do that for waffles, biscuits and pancakes, etc. It sure makes busy mornings easier.

  31. These are great! Kids loved them
    This may be kind ofor obvious to every one else, but I was surprised how huge this recipe wasn’t until I ran out of buttermilk that I actually thought about the proportions (I substituted plain yogurt and milk, which worked just fine). I think I got 15 wafflesQ out of a Waring 7″ round waffle maker. They’ll probably freeze just fine. I’ll definitely make them again.

    • Hi Mike,
      I’m glad you enjoyed the waffles! I’m glad your substitution turned out well – one thing I do if I’ve run out of buttermilk is make my Homemade Buttermilk Substitute – so easy. I hope that helps.
      These will freeze fine – I like to flash freeze them on a baking sheet, then place in freezer bags so that I can just take out what I want to reheat at the time.
      Thanks again for letting me know you enjoyed them! 🙂
