You can use a waffle maker for these Chocolate Waffles if you have one, but we just used one of these heart shaped waffle moulds from Amazon UK.

If you want the waffles a bit crispier, then just tip them out of the mould onto a baking tray for the last 5 minutes or so.

Like them a bit more chocolatey? Then just add some extra cocoa powder, or a teaspoon of Chocolate Extract.

Finally, we need to mention cocoa powder. The nutritional values of cocoa powder do vary so you should check whichever brand you use.

What timing & temp would you use in an air fryer for these please?


RachelSaturday 29th April 2023

I’ve just tried these in my waffle maker. Quick, low calorie and absolutely yummy!
I will be making these a lot.
I love your recipes and I’ve got two of your books.


    SharonFriday 12th May 2023

    Hi Rachel, thanks for your lovely comment; we’re so pleased to hear you’re loving our recipes!


JulieSaturday 5th February 2022

Can I use Greek yoghurt instead of natural yoghurt in the recipe?


    HollyMonday 7th February 2022

    Hi Julie, yes you can swap the natural yoghurt for Greek yoghurt you may need to adjust the calories accordingly, hope that helps!


DeborahSaturday 23rd January 2021

What do I need to do to adjust removing the egg in the waffle recipes due to allergies?


    LisaSunday 24th January 2021

    Hi Deborah.
    You probably already know that you can buy egg replacers. We’ve not used them ourselves, so don’t know how they would affect this recipe. If you try it, please let us know how you get on.


VictoriaSaturday 3rd October 2020

Oooo what about adding protein powder ? Would I substitute the weight for the weight of the oats ?


    HollyFriday 16th October 2020

    Hi Victoria, it’s not something we have tried for the Chocolate waffles I wouldn’t substitute all of the oats for protein powder as they may end up a little rubbery once cooked you could try swapping 1 tbsp for your protein powder or serve the waffles with a protein rich Greek yogurt. Hope that helps!


Jane KielyThursday 1st October 2020

Hi do you need a good processor. To blitz the oats. Thank you


    HollyThursday 1st October 2020

    Hi Jane, any food processor or bullet blender would work to blitz the oats into a fine powder. Hope that helps!


Nicola PetrieThursday 18th June 2020

Could I use oat or wheat bran instead of blitzed oats?


    LisaFriday 19th June 2020

    Hi Nicola
    We’ve never tired this recipe with oat or wheat bran so can’t really say how successful it would be. It might affect the texture of the waffles and you may have to adjust the liquid added. If you do decide try it, please let us know how it goes.


MelanieThursday 30th April 2020

Can you use this recipe in a waffle maker


    Sharon FitzpatrickWednesday 6th May 2020

Ladies, can these be cooked in an electric waffle maker?


    Sharon FitzpatrickThursday 7th May 2020

    Hi Lynda, thanks for your question, Yes, you could make these in an electric waffle maker, let us know how you get on.


CeriMonday 19th August 2019

Hi, just a quick question. Once they are cooked will they be slightly gooey in the middle of will it be totally crisp throughout?


    Emma TMonday 23rd September 2019

    Hi Ceri,

    They should still be a little soft in the middle, and crisp on the outside ????


SarahThursday 7th February 2019

Can you use anything instead of a food processor?


SueThursday 7th February 2019

Hi can I use cacao powder instead of cocoa powder and also would choc shot work as well instead of chocolate extract ? Thanks


HayliMonday 30th July 2018

Hi these look amazing! I’m vegetarian so can’t use mullerlight- are there any veggie friendly alternative yoghurts you would suggest instead? Many thanks!


ClaireFriday 9th March 2018

CAn these be made in a waffle maker rather than in the oven?


MarieSaturday 9th September 2017

Ooooo yum! Sorry if I missed it, but could these be batch cooked and frozen?


    Emma TSunday 10th September 2017

    Hi Marie,

    Yes these should freeze and reheat ok. If you place some baking parchment paper between them before freezing then they will be easier to separate ????


Claire WilliamsFriday 1st September 2017

Can these be frozen? If yes, how long for?


    Emma TMonday 11th September 2017
