Chocolate Chip Waffles

Well, I'm sure I'll get over this new waffle maker obsession eventually, but in the meantime I've been experimenting with different flavors. Please bear with me while I work through my waffle-mania!

I usually only make four, four-by-four inch waffles, but you can double the recipe if you need to make more. These waffles can be frozen and reheated in the toaster for a quick snack.

Basic Vegan Waffles

1/2 cup flour (whole wheat pastry flour works great)
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 cup soy milk
1 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil or melted Earth Balance
1 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

1. Preheat your waffle iron and spray with cooking spray.

2. In a small mixing bowl (medium, if you're doubling the recipe) whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.

3. In a small bowl of a cup, stir together the milk, oil, sugar, and vanilla extract. Pour the the liquids on top of the dry ingredients and gently fold until just combined.

4. Cook according to your waffle iron's manufacturer's directions until golden brown. This makes four 4x4 inch waffles in my Black & Decker waffle maker.

Wing it: Jazz'em up by adding a handful of chocolate chips to the batter. You can also add different extracts like almond, orange, coconut, or maybe a few blueberries, nuts...
