Do you get all into Easter? (I can’t believe we’re already talking about that…this year is flyiiiing.) I usually don’t get into any holidays, other than Christmas and my kids’ birthdays. but this year, my kids are old enough to completely understand, well one of them is, so I’m getting much more into it already.

I’ve got a couple Easter crafts planned out. Some of my favorite things to look at now are all the holiday crafts my mom used to do with us..I LOVE that she saves everything. I get nostalgic.

Also, in case you care, Target is killing it with the Easter stuff this year. I want alllll the things. The colors! It’s like Spring has Sprung! I’m ready, I’m ready!

WAFFLES! I used to make them allllll the time. I always had a couple different flavors in my freezer to pop in the toaster in the morning for my kids or myself for breakfast. Living in a hotel put a serious damper on my waffle obsession. But not anymore!

I’m back. And I’m ready to rock..(!!) Dark Chocolate-twice. Coconut-lots. Strawberries-covered in sugar. These waffles have all the components of perfection. I wish you could understand how crazy I’ve been going over coconut..every single day.

I have a few recipes coming for you with coconut, but mostly my husband keeps looking at me sideways when whatever it is I made for dinner, houses something with coconut. I CAN’T STOP. I won’t stop. Make the Waffles!

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 6 Large Waffles

Double Dark Chocolate Coconut Waffles, topped with Strawberries and Syrup! Mouthwatering dessert for breakfast!

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 cups chopped strawberries
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup dark unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 1/2 cups LIGHT coconut milk (whole fat will be way to thick!)
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut, plus more for topping
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • Cooking Spray

Directions

  1. 1-2 hours before, (or even the night before!) In a medium-sized bowl, combine the 2 TB sugar and chopped strawberries. Toss together. (The sugar will help extract the juices from the strawberries, and create a natural syrup.) If you don't have time for this step, just throw strawberries on top of the waffles and drizzle with real maple syrup!
  2. To make the waffles, in a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, sugar and salt. Set Aside.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the eggs and vanilla. Add the coconut oil and the milks.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix together.
  5. Add the shredded coconut and chocolate chips and mix in.
  6. Spray a pre-heated waffle iron with cooking spray, and add the batter in 1/4-1/2 cup increments. Cook according to your waffle makers instructions.
  7. Top your waffles with your strawberries and syrup, and sprinkle with some extra coconut! Enjoy!
