  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 banana sliced
Strawberry Coulis:
  • 2 cups frozen strawberries thawed
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
Waffles:
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 egg
  • 1 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Method

Strawberry Coulis: In food processor, purée together strawberries, sugar and lime juice until smooth; set aside. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 24 hours.)

Waffles: In large bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

In separate bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk and butter; pour over flour mixture. Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips and stir just until combined.

Heat waffle iron; brush lightly with some of the vegetable oil. Using about 1/2 cup (125 mL) batter per waffle (or enough to spread to edges), pour onto waffle iron.

Close lid and cook until waffle is crisp, golden and steam stops, about 8 minutes. (Make-ahead: Let cool, wrap individually and freeze in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.) Keep warm in single layer on rack on baking sheet in 200°F (100°C) oven.

To serve, top each waffle with sliced bananas. Drizzle with coulis.
