Gluten-Free Chocolate Buckwheat Waffles

Serves 8


  • Preheat oven to 300°. Toss buckwheat, 2 tsp. maple syrup, and salt on a rimmed baking sheet until evenly coated. Bake until dry to the touch and toasty smelling, 12–15 minutes. Stir to recoat and transfer to a sheet of parchment paper. Let crumble cool.
  • Whisk ricotta and remaining 2 Tbsp. maple syrup in a small bowl until smooth.
  • Heat a waffle iron on medium. Whisk buckwheat flour, cocoa powder, flaxseed meal, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a large bowl to combine. Whisk eggs, buttermilk, coconut oil, brown sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl until smooth. Add to dry ingredients and whisk until smooth; mix in chocolate.
  • Lightly coat waffle iron with nonstick spray. Scoop batter onto waffle iron (it should cover the entire surface; amount needed will vary according to model) and cook waffles until you smell a blast of chocolaty aroma hit you and edges are slightly darkened, around 3 minutes per batch. Remove carefully from waffle iron. Without gluten, waffles will be extra tender.
  • Serve waffles topped with whipped ricotta, crumble, and maple syrup.
