Brownie Waffle Cookies-The rich taste of a brownie made with your waffle iron!
I have a confession. I never use my waffle iron. I’ve had it for 2 years and I think I’ve used it twice. When you have 3 teenage kids, all hungrily waiting at the table for food. Making one waffle at a time just isn’t productive. And I like to eat with the family. But after making at least 2 waffles per child, then finally making one for myself, they’re done.
I know I could make all the waffles and then call them to the table but there’s something about a waffle, hot off the iron. It’s just better than one that’s sat around warming for 10-15 minutes.
So waffles as a breakfast food don’t happen at my house. Any time I think waffles, I just switch it up to pancakes. I’ve got a huge electric griddle, I can make 6 pancakes at a time.
That doesn’t mean I don’t want to use my waffle iron. Especially as the summer months get into full swing. I don’t want to heat up the kitchen using the oven. We still need our sweets.
Using the waffle iron to make cookies is the perfect solution. And since these are technically waffles, you could serve them for breakfast!
