Yes, it’s Tuesday, but let’s talk about what we’re having for breakfast this weekend!
have the most distinct, warm memories of Sunday mornings. Both while growing up and now, Sundays have always been lazy, carefree days filled with indulgent foods (like Peanut Vegan Chocolate Chip Waffles) and plans for absolutely nothing.
My favorite thing about Sundays have always been breakfast. On those relaxed days we always took the time to make the luxurious meals that would normally take too much time and effort on a rushed weekday morning. Waffles have always been a rotation in the Sunday arsenal, proving to be an easy, set-and-forget breakfast that also warms the soul on the last morning of the weekend.
These Peanut Vegan Chocolate Chip Waffles were the brainchild of taking the everyday waffle and adding in my favorite flavor elements.
Chocolate chips? Duh yes! Vanilla? Essential! Peanuts? Salty and crunchy!
The apple cider vinegar gives them bubbles, making for fluffy, crispy waffles, while the other ingredients provide a stable batter to hold up to the scrumptious add-ins.
Waffles can be modified to fit whatever you have on hand, but I think the best waffles are enjoyed hot off the iron, with a smattering of butter, pools of syrup (do the real deal man!), and not a care in the world.

Makes 8 waffles
- 1 1/4 cups flour (I used whole wheat)
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. corn starch
- 3/4 tsp. salt
- 1 1/3 cups almond milk (or your choice of dairy or non-dairy milk)
- 1 tbs. apple cider vinegar
- 2 tbs. agave nectar
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 cup chocolate chips (I used Whole Foods vegan chips)
- 1/2 cup chopped peanuts
Plug in and pre-heat waffle iron according to iron’s instructions.
Combine all dry ingredients in one bowl and all wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Whisk wet ingredients into dry mixture until dry ingredients are just moistened, do not over mix.
Fold in chocolate chips and peanuts until incorporated.
Spray waffle iron with non stick spray and follow iron’s instructions for making waffles, cooking until golden brown.
Extra waffles can be refrigerated or frozen and warmed in the toaster.
