Fudgy Waffles

Normally my cooking is driven by a story or experience, this week I am letting my cooking create an experience.  Here's the background...

For those of you who don't know, there exists a complex network of people whose job it is to get the right products on the shelf of your favorite grocery store.  One of those people is Boyfriend.  To explain to you what he does would probably take a whole post to itself.  Simply put - He works with the brands to get their product on the store shelves and make sure they sell to people like us.


As we enter a new phase in our lives, buying a house and setting roots, Boyfriend is looking for a new job.  He found a job at Chobani Greek Yogurt that he thinks would be the perfect fit (and seriously, I'm all for more CHO in the house!).

Never content to go the traditional route, he asked me to help out (with my cooking talents) to help get him an interview.  Over the next few days, I will be posting some delicious meals we prepared (yes, we!) using Chobani.  Let's all band together and help Boyfriend and Chobani get together!


Then make some waffles, they are delicious.  I'd recommend eating them for breakfast AND dessert.  Afraid of baking?  You can totally do this, Boyfriend made these waffles!  I just gave him the recipe and told him to excessively spray down the waffle iron with cooking oil.

If you feel so inclined, head over to twitter and help boyfriend out!  Just copy and paste this tweet and hopefully he'll be on his way to his dream job and we'll be buying our dream co-op in Brooklyn!

Fudgy Waffles
A Wilde Original

These waffles are SUPER fudgy.  They are also packed with extra protein from the Chobani I added to the recipe.  Since I ate mine for breakfast, I opted to top mine with a dollop of raspberry-chocolate Chobani Bite and a few raspberries.  I may have these for dessert tonight and top them with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and hot fudge!

2 eggs, room temperature
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 cup plain Chobani
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup Dutch cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

In a large bowl, beat eggs, oil and vanilla on medium for 2 minutes.  Add milk and yogurt and beat until smooth.  In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg.  Turn mixer to low and slowly add flour mixture.  Mix until just combined.  Fold in walnuts and chocolate chips.

Bake waffles in your waffle iron according to your machines instructions.  Add your desired toppings - yogurt and berries for something a little for breakfasty or ice cream and whipped cream for dessert!
