Chocolate Waffles with Strawberries may be just what you need for Sunday brunch. There is no doubt your loved ones will agree!
Well, I am really running late, because tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and I was planing to publish this recipe yesterday. However, my daughter asked me to go with her and my four years old twin grandsons skating, so obviously I dropped everything, lol. Oh, but I wasn’t skating, I was just helping them standing up, since they are learning as you can imagine, lol. We had lots of fun and they always bring me so much joy. I have to say, there is no better Valentine’s present for me than a day with my two little rascals.
However, these delicious CHOCOLATE WAFFLES can be a lovely addition to start your Valentine’s Day whether for your sweetheart or the whole family. They are the easiest yummy treat to make, besides they are full of healthy nutrients and refined sugar free. The waffles themselves are actually totally sugar free, if you use Erythritol. The dark, 90% Lindt chocolate is very low in sugar, only 2 grams per 30 grams of chocolate. And yes, I know I added Maple syrup in the recipe, but if your really concern about that, you can use just melted dark chocolate with little bit of coconut milk.
On the other hand, for those of you are ready to indulge, go a head and add some VEGAN ICE CREAM! There is so much selection in the supermarkets now day; just follow this link and pick your favor HERE!
I wish you HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY and if you have any questions or suggestions, I would love to hear from you.
