Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Waffles

I don't know whether these should be breakfast, dessert, or a snack- they're just so yummy!
But they would certainly be good for any of those categories and since they are all whole wheat, you wouldn't even have to feel bad about grabbing one on the way out the door for a 'quick fix'.

I cooked some of these up to have for breakfast this week but they will also be handy if we need a 'quick fix'!

This is a big batch, so you can feed a big family, and/or have some for the freezer!
4 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
3 cups milk
1 stick of melted butter
6 eggs
3 T baking powder
1/2 T salt
2 1/2 T cane sugar (or white or honey)
1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Mix flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder in large mixing bowl. Stir in milk, eggs, and melted butter.
(*Tip: always beat pancake or waffle batter with a mixer to ensure no dry lumps!)

You may stir in chocolate chips but I prefer to sprinkle them on the batter before closing the waffle iron. This way I can ensure that each waffle gets about even, rather than have the chips sink to the bottom of the batter between each batch.
Brush melted butter on your waffle iron between each batch and cook according to your iron's instructions.
(One of my irons has a green light that goes on when it's ready while the other one I have has a red light that goes off when it's ready!)

Cool on wire rack if you are going to store in the fridge or freezer. 
I tied these up in a large double, bread-bag :-)

Top with maple syrup, fruit and powdered sugar, honey, or you might even like Peanut Butter Honey Syrup!
