Whole Wheat Chocolate Peppermint Waffles


This is the ultimate breakfast of the season that you'd love to wake up to! The addictive peppermint flavor will make anyone devour these pancakes. These eggless waffles are made with whole wheat and are a very healthy and scrumptious breakfast. Plus, waffles are always crowd pleasing and will make guests very happy. For vegan version, substitute with oil and plant based milk/cream.


Whether you drizzle chocolate-peppermint syrup and whipped cream or pour them on top, these waffles are absolutely divine! Add as per preference! These can be made with regular flour instead of whole wheat. 

The peppermint flavoring comes from Torani peppermint syrup and peppermint extract. This adds a perfect balance. Along with chocolate-peppermint syrup, this will have a perfect balance and will not overwhelm. But, if you are peppermint lover, add peppermint extract to whipped cream, and that would be heavenly too!


This meal can itself be a perfect treat! A holiday meal treat, just like this Whole Wheat Gingerbread Pancake Puffs and Vegan Coconut Gingerbread Muffins. These chocolate peppermint waffles would make feel like having a royal breakfast treat! by the way, if you are a peppermint lover, try this Eggless Triple Peppermint Cookie and Peppermint Hot Chocolate Bombs.
