If you're gonna whip up homemade waffles, you might as well go all out with chocolatey batter and a gooey peanut butter topping!

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

Waffles

3/4 cup (about 6 large) egg whites

2 tbsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread

3/4 cup whole-wheat flour

1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 1/2 tbsp. Truvia spoonable no-calorie sweetener (or another natural brand that’s about twice as sweet as sugar)

2 tsp. vanilla extract

2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. salt

 

Topping

3 tbsp. powdered peanut butter

3 tbsp. unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1 tbsp. honey

4 tsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:

Place egg whites in a medium bowl. With an electric mixer set to medium speed, beat until fluffy, 1 - 2 minutes.

In a large microwave-safe bowl, microwave butter for 25 seconds, or until melted. Add remaining waffle ingredients (except whipped egg whites) and 3/4 cup water. Whisk until mostly smooth and uniform.

Gently but thoroughly fold egg whites into batter. Stir until just mixed and uniform.

Spray a standard round waffle maker with nonstick spray, and set heat to medium. Once hot, pour 1/4th of the batter (about 3/4 cup) into the center of the waffle maker. Close and cook for 4 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.

Transfer waffle to a plate. Repeat to make 3 more waffles, re-spraying between waffles if needed.

In a small bowl, combine all topping ingredients except chocolate chips. Mix until uniform.

Just before serving, drizzle 1/4th of the PB topping (about 1 tbsp.) over each waffle, and top with 1 tsp. chocolate chips.
