I bet you have heard of black bean brownies, but maybe didn’t eat them for breakfast. Health food meets dessert in these black bean chocolate waffles. They use only simple whole food ingredients and are easy to make. The black beans add extra protein, which makes these waffles a perfectly healthy and wholesome breakfast.

There’s something very comforting about eating warm chocolate foods on a cold day. These waffles would be perfect for a rainy Sunday morning and topped with sliced bananas, or even great on a summer morning and topped with fresh strawberries. But don’t think that waffles have to just be for breakfast either. Scoop on vegan whipped cream and drizzle on melted chocolate over the waffles for a decadent dessert.
