Just in time for Valentine’s Day this year, I found a heart-shaped waffle iron. I warmed it up this morning to try out one of my favorite waffle recipes. This one is just perfect for Valentine’s Day because each bite of waffle has the beautiful bright pink of raspberries and delicious melted semisweet chocolate (I stole some Valentine chocolates and chopped them up, but chocolate morsels are good, too)!

2 eggs
1 cup milk (plus about 2 tablespoons more for a thinner consistency)
3 Tbsp canola or olive oil
1 cup white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup white flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup chocolate bits
handful of frozen raspberries, crumbled

Preheat waffle iron. Whisk eggs, milk and oil in large bowl, then mix in dry ingredients until batter is smooth. Stir in chocolate and raspberries, then bake in waffle iron as directed by manufacturer.

We topped with maple syrup, but fruit or fruit syrups would be delicious and also perfect colors for Valentine’s Day! Of course you can also add butter, whipped cream, ice cream, chocolate sauce…whatever you prefer!

How do you like your waffles?
