I really like these cookies.  They are quick to make (one bowl, no electric mixer) and they bake in the waffle iron -so the oven doesn't have to heat up the house (great for summertime baking).  They taste yummy too!

They are also easy to make gluten free, just use whatever gluten free flour and add xanthan gum!

If you make them please tell me how they turn out!  And of course, constructive compliments are always welcomed.  8)

Step 1: Recipe

This is actually half the recipe, and makes 4 full waffles = 16 cookies (with my waffle iron).  Go ahead and double it if you want much more leftover or if you're baking them for your family of 12...

2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 cup flour (+1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum if using gluten free flour)

I'll do the math for you...

4 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup cocoa powder
2 cups flour (+ 1 teaspoon xanthan gum if using GF flour)

Maybe you only have 3 eggs...

3 eggs
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup + 2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups flour (+ 3/4 teaspoon xanthan gum for GF)

Yum I made this twice worked great! Family loved it!
woohoo! I'm glad you like them!
Love chocolate! Looks delicious! That is a nice video animation showing how to take the waffle off the iron too!
I really didn't have much luck with these. The biggest problem I see is a difference in waffle irons -- yours is sort of flatter than mine. The deep pockets of mine made them come apart when I tried to remove them. I ended up trying to flip the whole machine over a ceramic plate, which took more hands than I have. I also thought they were kind of bitter -- which is probably due to the baking mix that I use (3 pts brown rice, 3 parts corn starch, 2 parts sorghum, and 1 part masa harina). Also, as my waffle iron is brand new, it has several settings. I picked the medium most number. Should I have cooked less or more? Do you think more gum would help them stay together better in the deeper waffle iron? I'd really like these to be able to come out. Waffle iron cookies seem like such a great idea for my allergy ridden kids, and you sure are right about not wanting to heat up the house in summer. Maybe I'll get better with practice, although you sure made it look easier than it was. I think I will try again and maybe try the tapioca flour mix that I use for some of my cakes. If I'm able to figure out answers to my own questions, I'll come back and post them.
Are you sure it was oiled enough? I've had problems a few times where I open the iron and the waffle splits in half, sticking to the top and bottom- very much a pain to remove. It was because I didn't oil it enough.<br> <br> Do you have a Belgian waffle iron? I haven't tried this recipe in one, I would think that could make it harder for them to come out. This iron is a couple years old, when shopping for a new one it was hard to find a &quot;shallow&quot; one like this, not Belgian- I'm pretty sure this one came from Walmart.<br> <br> More gum might help it stay together better in a deeper iron, but too much might make the texture less brownie/cake-like and more...dense. Maybe start by trying 3/4 t per cup flour?<br> <br> RE flours: I used about 1/2 sorghum, 1/4 oat, 1/8 tapioca, 1/8 brown rice. Do you usually use the same ratio for other things and they turn out fine?
removing sticky waffles from the iron can be a bit of an art, nice animation to show us how it's (gently) done.<br><br>Though I'm not celiac, I like how you've included a GF option.
thank you :)
I looooove waffles. These look fantastic!
i love waffles too! i like regular waffles with either just butter or butter and a tiny sprinkling of powdered sugar, then the melted butter and sugar kinda make a frosting....soo good.
These look yummy and decorative. I'm always looking for gluten free sweets. Thanks!
I hope you enjoy them!
Yum! Looks good.
thanks :)
Thanks for your ible.
