Kentucky Hot Brown Sandwiches on Jalapeño Cornbread Biscuits with Honey Bourbon Bacon.
Is there anything better than some good ol’ chocolate chip waffles???
I’d take chocolate chip pancakes too, but today we are just talkin’ waffles.
So one day last week I suddenly had a major itch to make waffles. It was probably all the snow. Snow and waffles just kind of go hand in hand, but with or without, waffles rule.
Also, if I see another snow flake, I may just have to pick up and move to a sunny warm place for the next three months or so.
It’s like full on winter here and all I can think about is SUMMER. Yeah, not spring, summer.
It happens every single year like clockwork around this time. I sort of get the feeling that this may be the case for lots of us though. Am I right??
Oh, and since I can’t get summer off my brain, I guess I should tell you all that I am actually stressing out about how to get all of my summer recipes posted within the allotted time (end of May-early September and yes, Memorial Day = summer in my brain). Like I have so, so, so many things I want to share with you all that I am stressed that there will not be enough days to get them all in! Thoughts have even crossed my mind about posting all seven days of the week, but then a smart, logical person (AKA my mother) chimes in and says “well, when would you sleep?”. And then I realize she has a point… and I take a deep breath… and then I start stress again.
And umm, if you think I am being ridiculous, I wouldn’t argue with you in the least. But I already happily admit I am %100 crazy. No denying it here. But hey, it’s gives me character right? At least I think it does?
Ok, but tell me, am I the only one this pumped for summer and summer food???? What are you guys most excited for? What foods can’t you wait to make? Any recipes you’d like to see me make? Come on, lets chat today. I am feeling kind of talkative.
I do realize that all this non-sense above has nothing to do with these amazing whole wheat Belgium chocolate chip waffles, so let me explain them before I lose you guys completely…or have I already lost you?
SOO. I made these with a special day in mind. Some of you may say it’s a bit early to be thinking about Mother’s Day, but I like to be prepared. That or I just really wanted some chocolate chip waffles, and prepping them for a Mother’s Day Breakfast in bed post seemed like a pretty good excuse to make them. Yeah, that sounds more like it.
But I really did think about my mom when creating this recipe. It’s truly all her favorite things. Especially since breakfast is her favorite meal, chocolate her favorite food group and carbs her other favorite food group. Not sure which she likes more, but I am pretty positive she could never live without chocolate, but life without carbs? Hmm, that would be mighty hard, but as long as she had chocolate, I think she could do it.
Being the bestest daughter that I am (cause the other one is 6, and whoever makes waffles with chocolate chips on a random snowy day in April… plus serves them in a comfy cozy bed… clearly wins. Sorry Asher, but I schooled you on this one), I made my mom a pre Mother’s Day breakfast (…or really lunch) in my bed. Yes, now she’ll get two fancy breakfasts!
She’s pumped. COOL.
Really though, don’t I just treat my momma AWESOME?!? Right, right. If only I told you about all the times I use her as my own personal punching bag (and by that I only mean I unload all my stresses on her – promise, no real violence) because she’s my mom and well, she’ll always love me no matter how mean I can sometimes be. We fight like sisters, work like partners, are complete opposites, but oddly each others best friends. I feel pretty lucky to have such an awesome relationship with not only my mom, but both my parents.
So this means Mother’s Day is kind of important to me. I am not big on buying gifts or anything like that, but just more into showing my mom I care. And the best way I know how to say that is clearly through food.
Oh and flowers, always flowers too! You just can never go wrong with some fresh flowers.
Last year I made some beyond amazing crepes that you should really check out as well. Those crepes…too good!
This year though, I went a little simpler. Nothing wrong with that. I mean, these waffles are legit and since I love my mom so much, I made them a little healthier with the addition of whole wheat flour. I know there is still chocolate and all, but to her that’s like health food (she’s pretty smart, right?). So you see, these waffles, with a scoop of ice cream on top (mine was homemade coconut ice cream…Mmmm!) are actually somewhat healthy. Well, maybe the ice cream is a bit of a stretch, but we’ll just pretend it’s greek yogurt or something. The imagination is a beautiful thing!
Oh my gosh, and those bananas! Well obviously those are healthy. And crazy good too! There may even be a little coconut rum in there too.
What?!? Hey, my mom is a lightweight and I knew if I got just a little something extra in these waffles, I would be able to butter her up and talk her into a shopping trip.
Genius? Or totally evil?
JUST KIDDING. Well, sorta.

In all seriousness, just make these waffles. Really, please do!! And even better if you eat them (serve them) in bed…maybe ditch work too? Oh would that be amazing!
Wow! These look fantastic! And you are right, there is nothing better than chocolate chip waffles!
Thanks Annie!! 🙂
T, you are seriously raising the bar with photo staging, this is INCREDIBLE! love how you perfectly set a mood here, seriously adorable! and the recipe? that looks pretty damn great too 🙂
THANK YOU! Wow, that is so kind! Hope all is good with you and you are enjoying your week! 🙂
Love these waffles! And congrats on having a great mom – it’s really cool that you both are there for each other. I hope to be close to my daughters (and get a few sweet waffle breakfasts) when they grow up. Cheers!
Thanks Elizabeth! I know your daughters will you to death! 🙂
Oh I love Belgian waffles! So light, fluffy, and delicious! These look incredible 🙂
Thanks Jessica! Hope you had a great day!
I haven’t had breakfast yet, so in reading this post my stomach is totally growling and causing a mild scene. I loveee love love waffles. And chocolate. And this recipe! It looks amazing. Your staging for those waffles… priceless. Look at all that effort your put into that photo! You go girl, ha. Great recipe!
THANK YOU! Hope you are having a great week! 🙂
These look so fantastic! You’re really selling me on the purchase of a waffle maker right now… And those photos are gorgeous! Wonderful recipe as usual!
Thanks Amanda! You totally need a waffle maker! 🙂
Beautiful!!! And love the shots in the bed with those gorgeous purple pillows behind them 😉
Thanks Laura!! Hope you are having a great week! 🙂
Whole wheat, bananas, and chocolate. YUMMY!!!! I bet apples and cinnamon would be great too. No chocolate though. HA!!!
Thanks Charlotte! 🙂
Stunning. I would live to get waffles in bed for Mother’s Day. I think I’ll have to show this to my husband. 🙂
I love these photos, Tieghan! You really can’t go wrong with fresh flowers 🙂
Waffles are one of the breakfast foods that I can never seem to get enough of. I usually just make them by themselves but I just might have to go the extra mile one day and try them with caramelized bananas (which are amazing!!)
Thanks so much! Hope you are having a great week!!
your photography is absolutely beautiful <3
Thank you so much, Anna!!
Are you serious? These look ridiculous, yes ridiculously delicious. Wow!! I don’t think I can get to my kitchen fast enough.
Your photos are gorgeous! I can’t wait to make it this weekend.. with some healthy coconut ice cream as well 🙂
I so love your photos, pillows, plates and pans! Plus the food is pretty awesome also!
I’m more into your savory recipes, but these waffles look amazing! Yum!
Your mom is so lucky! As the mom of two and hopefully (fingers crossed big time right now) three on the way….i would pee my pants if my husband made these waffles and served them to me in bed. Like, total tears of job. Maybe if I send the link to him it will happen?
AHH! Fingers crossed for you, so exciting!!
Thanks Laura and I hope you send these to your husband!! 🙂
Thanks Terri! HOpe you had a great day!!
