These mini waffles have the perfect fluffy center, crispy outside, and gooey chocolate chips in every bite. I love to make a big batch of them to freeze for a quick breakfast during the week.

The recipe is so simple, and comes together in 20 minutes! You can even swap the chocolate chips for blueberries to switch things up.

What you’ll need to make these gluten-free chocolate chip waffles

The waffles are made with 8 simple ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Oat flourstore-bought oat flour is highly recommended since the texture is a lot finer, but you can make your own by blending rolled oats in your blender!
  • Plant-based milk– I love using an unsweetened almond milk, but a soy or oat milk would be a great nut free option
  • Olive oil
  • Eggs
  • Pure maple syrup
  • Vanilla extract
  • Baking powder
  • Vegan chocolate chips– these are my favorite allergy friendly chocolate chips!

Whisk everything together, and cook the batter in your mini waffle-maker, or a larger waffle iron. Top them with your choice of toppings- I love sliced strawberries, pure maple syrup, and a little shaved dark chocolate for a fancy kick 🙂

If you’re prepping mini waffles, you’ll get about 8 small waffles with this recipe, or 3-4 larger ones with a big waffle maker. You can easily double this recipe if you wanted to store a large batch!

How to store your chocolate chip waffles

Refrigerate your waffles: you can keep the waffles refrigerated for up to 5 days. Pop them in the oven to warm when you’re ready to eat them.

Freeze your waffles: you can freeze the waffles in a freezer-safe container or bag for up to 2 months. Warm them in the oven from frozen once you’re ready to serve.
