Chocolate {Chip} Brownie Waffles.

Yum! These were a beast to get off of the iron. It's probably a combination of a few things; I didn't use oil, maybe because I used wheat flour, maybe because I didn't cook long enough... or maybe because my waffle maker is a piece. But, they still tasted yummy! And that's all that really matters! They ended up working better for me as pancakes. We ate with sliced strawberries and whipped cashew cream. Totally more of a dessert but I balanced out the meal with Shrek Shakes.

2 cups whole wheat flour {calls for: all-purpose flour}
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups almond milk {calls for: soy milk}
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup vanilla or plain soy yogurt
1/3 cup applesauce {calls for: canola oil}
2/3 cup shy of agave nectar {calls for: sugar}
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup vegan semisweet chocolate chips, chopped coarsely {i omitted}
2/3 cup pecans, chopped coarsely
nonstick cooking spray

Preheat your waffle iron. Have a heat-proof silicone spatula on hand to help remove the hot waffles when ready.

Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt into a large bowl. Form a well in the center of the sifted ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk together the soy milk, water, soy yogurt, canola oil, sugar and vanilla.

Pour the wet ingredients into the well of the dry ingredients. Use a wire whisk to combine all the ingredients. Just before everything is fully blended, fold in the chopped chocolate chips and pecans. Combine until the ingredients are just moistened; do not overmix.

When the waffle maker is heated and ready to go, spray with cooking spray. Pour batter in and bake according to waffle iron directions. The waffles should be lightly browned. Use a spatula to carefully lift the waffles onto a cutting board. Separate with knife and serve immediately.
