Chocolate Zucchini Waffles

chocolate zucchini waffle

These chocolate zucchini waffles are super light, moist, and airy while packing in a strong cocoa flavor. It’s another guilt free chocolately fix that’s perfect for any day of the week at any time of day. This is a perfectly nutritious breakfast as well as a sweet treat for dessert and definitely something that won’t leave you feeling bloated or guilty for eating. I love topping mine with fresh sliced strawberries and a drizzle of peanut butter. It’s like a party in my mouth and tastes like heaven. Peanut butter and chocolate are the perfect duo as is and the strawberries add a fresh bite that’s just unbelievable. The zucchini practically disintegrates and makes sure the waffle doesn’t dry out while boosting nutrition. These waffles are amazing and I can assure you this will be the next hit at Sunday brunch and your new go-to chocolate fix.

Happy and healthy eating,
