Weekend Vegan Chocolate Waffles

I woke up this morning and felt like digging into some thick, old fashioned waffles; topped with a little melted (vegan) butter, pure maple syrup and a big handful of strawberries...

And like every other thing I want to do for myself, a four year old swings on in for the WIN!  Chocolate waffles it is.

1 1/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Scant 1/2 cup grade B maple syrup
1 cup almond milk
1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Preheat your waffle iron.  In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.  Make a well in the center and add milk, maple syrup, applesauce and vanilla.  Mix together until well combined.
Spray the waffle iron with cooking spray and cook waffles according to manufacturer's directions. 
We served with diced strawberries and the kids got 5 semi-sweet chocolate chips on top!
