Mocha Chocolate Waffle

If the name of my blog is any indication of my love for coffee, I am surprised I didn’t think of this recipe earlier. I have used coffee in my oats before, but why not use it in a waffle!?

acb7b7e29727b84ccd0b2d0c3dc556c2Yes, it was fabulous. This particular waffle came out so fluffy, yet dense and satisfying. All I can say is that you better make this asap! Secretly, I am just using this as an excuse to add more coffee to my meals because I can never have too much.

Coffee seems to be a pretty controversial ingredient these days. However, here are some redeeming qualities of my beloved drink:

  • Improves energy levels because it is a stimulant
  • Might improve physical performance
  • May lower the risk of developing Type II Diabetes
  • One of the richest sources of antioxidants in the American diet
  • Potential protection from Parkinson, Dementia and Alzheimer Disease (source)

Anything to justify my 5 cup a day habit, right?mochawaffle
