These gluten free chocolate waffles make the perfect waffles and ice cream sundaes. I just love waffles and ice cream. It’s a serious nostalgia food for me. Waffles and ice cream was the breakfast of choice when I was little and had a big day at school coming up. Tough test? Waffles and ice cream for breakfast. Gym day? (I HATED gym class.) Waffles and ice cream. SAT day? Yep. I probably had waffles and ice cream.

Granted, my mom’s version of waffles and ice cream was toaster waffles, not homemade, perfectly crunchy and soft chocolate waffles.

And toaster waffles have their place. Past pregzilla me can attest to that. One night around 2 am when I was about 20 weeks along with the Goose, I needed toaster waffles in a way that only a pregnant woman could. It was a craving mixed with an intense sense of desperation. If I didn’t eat a toaster waffle right then, it was going to get real ugly.

We didn’t have any toaster waffles. It was tragic. It was also 2 am. My husband offered to go to the store to get some to feed the beast but I wouldn’t let him go. Instead, bless his sweet heart, he quietly got up off the couch and went into the kitchen. He didn’t say a word and kept telling me to stay put. He made me delicious homemade waffles. At 2 am. He toasted them a little extra to give them the toaster waffle crunch I was craving and slathered them in butter. Husband of the year right here.

Meanwhile, I full on ugly cried as I ate the waffles that my husband so thoughtfully made me at 2 am. Because how sweet is that?

I can assure you, pregzilla me would cry ugly tears if I was fed these chocolate waffles at 2 am. Actually, pregzilla me would probably ugly cry at any time of the day. These gluten free chocolate waffles are perfection. They are the right mix of crispy and fluffy. Plus, the chocolate chips. OMG. Just stop. Chocolate chips in waffles. Yes please. They melt and make the waffle taste like a chocolate chocolate chip cookie. Serve them with these mocha frappuccinos and enjoy a chocolate lover’s dream.

    These look really good for a weekend breakfast treat. I think I'll top mine with strawberries!

    These look fantastic, and I have all of the ingredients (minus the GF flour) in my pantry! One of my closest friends just stopped eating gluten and I think I'm going to have to have her and her kids over for breakfast (or dessert!) sometime in the near future.

      You could sub regular flour if you want to give them a whirl. When your friend comes over, I like the Bob's Red Mill all purpose gf flour blend.

    Yum! Those look incredible. I have to bake with almond milk for my boy who is allergic to dairy. But honestly, I think almond milk might only add to the flavor. These look so good!
    • jfletcher
      I think the almond milk would work just fine. It might even be really good with the vanilla almond milk to add extra flavor.
