Chocolate waffles with peanut butter sauce

These crispy chocolate waffles with peanut butter sauce are a completely decadent breakfast and they’re gluten free!

If we’re being honest (what a dumb saying, of course I’m being honest, this is the one place I get to do that), I’m pretty happy we’ve got the Super Bowl behind us. You’d think there’s no such thing as too much when it comes to cheese, buffalo wings and “party food” but, I’m over it. I’d like my Pinterest feed to go back to pretty food things not the crap that American’s like to eat on a certain Sunday in February every year.

Like waffles.

Gluten free chocolate waffles

Crispy chocolate ones with peanut butter sauce preferably.

Chocolate Waffles

If there’s one good thing about a dumbass groundhog seeing his shadow, it’s 6 more weeks of cozy winter weekend breakfasts. There are few redeeming things about this season in NY and that is one of them. So if you’re telling me I have to “endure” 6 more weekends with peanut butter sauce dripping down the side of my plate as I shovel chocolate waffles into my mouth and then chill on the couch with a mug of coffee and Pinterest for a couple hours…

Yield: 2-3 servings
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

These crispy chocolate waffles with peanut butter sauce are a completely decadent breakfast and they're gluten free!


  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 cup gluten free baking flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons turbinado/raw sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

For the Peanut Butter Yogurt Sauce

  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons creamy natural peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk


  1. Combine the flours, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and cornstarch in a large bowl and mix together.
  2. Whisk together the eggs and sugar in a small bowl.
  3. Add the vanilla, butter and milk and whisk until smooth.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk together.
  5. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  6. Set aside for 15 minutes.
  7. Heat and grease your waffle iron.
  8. Pour about 3/4 cup of the batter into the waffle iron and cook according to your waffle maker's directions. (I like to set it to a high heat and leave it about 1 minute after it beeps for extra crispy waffles).
  9. Remove waffle and place on rack while you cook the remaining ones.

For the Peanut Butter Sauce

  1. Combine the yogurt, peanut butter and maple syrup in a small bowl and mix together with a spoon until the peanut butter is incorporated fully.
  2. Add the milk 1 tablespoon at a time and stir again until the sauce thins out to your desired consistency.

    Gina, those pancakes look stunning!!
    I’m just wondering if I could try them with coconut flour and soya flour in lieu of the other flours.
    I see an experiment in my future.
    Thanks for such a delicious post (and your photographs are gorgeous!)

      Hmm…I’m honestly not sure. I’ve never cooked with soya flour so I have no idea how that handles. Coconut flour is an option but the ratios of flour to liquid would change given it’s absorbency. If you play around with success, let me know!

    Seriously saw this on Insta yesterday and looked at the picture a zillion times throughout the day. 1) Seriously, I can see why it’s your fav shoot, these pictures are AMAZING!
    And, chocolate waffles with peanut butter sauce that are HEALTHY?

    I both love and hate you for posting this for me to read on a Monday morning. But seriously, this is SO beautiful and sounds delicious! My husband claims to hate peanut butter (blasphemy) so I wonder if i could trick him with a peanut butter yogurt sauce. Hell, that’s what I used to make the frosting on my dog’s birthday cupcakes so it’s gotta be good!

      I got about 5 (4.75 to be exact). I LOVE my Waring Pro. I thought the double decker thing was a bit much, but it’s perfect when there’s two of you so you can both eat at the same time :)

    I’m on a total waffle kick at the moment and I’m pretty sure these just zoomed to the top of my ‘to make’ list!

    I for one am really excited about this 6 more weeks of winter thing!! I also LOL’d that the mayor of NYC DROPPED the groundhog…The dude is like 6’5″, so that was a long ass fall for a little ground hog. I’m better he predicted 6-more weeks of winter out of spite. Oh well, slide me a plate of these and I’m happy. :)

    1. Running to the Kitchen Post author

      I haven’t tried it that way but it probably would work. Please let me know how it turns out if you give it a shot!
