Breakfast Christmas day is usually pretty light, as we typically have a heavier lunch, but this year I’m going all out and making these Chocolate Buckwheat waffles with all the toppings!



So easy and quick, they’re on the plate in 10 minutes and you can top them with whatever you like! Hubby likes his with butter and drenched with maple syrup. Me, I’m a berry and PB gal myself!



These waffles have an almost cake-like center, and the chocolate pairs really well with the nutty buckwheat flavor.

There’s a lot to love about this recipe:

  • gluten-free
  • egg free
  • dairy-free
  • nutrient-dense
  • absolutely delicous!




If you’ve got a crowd to feed, double the mix to serve four. If you happen to have any leftovers, whack them in the freezer to pull out when you need a quick breakfast. Let thaw on the bench for 5 minutes then throw it in the toaster for a delicious crispy waffle!
