I know that I probably had you at ‘chocolate.’ Or maybe it was a combination of vegan and chocolate. Either way I can feel you on this one. How much chocolate is too much chocolate? I haven’t reached that point yet so I don’t know!
You can make these vegan chocolate waffles and they will be delicious no matter what you top them with. For chocolate overload you can make the chocolate syrup. Fresh fruit is also great on these. My favorite topping is probably peanut butter. So good!
