Who doesn’t like the combination of Nutella and waffles for breakfast? I love adding Nutella to anything, so these amazing waffles made my day.
Make it as a treat for a special occasion or birthday breakfast for fellow Nutella-lovers to really brighten their day.
To round out the dish, top with strawberries or your favorite fruit. You can even add a dollop of whipped cream to make this breakfast dish even more dessert-like.
What You Need to Make Nutella Waffles
These Nutella waffles are made with a classic chocolate waffle to which I added Nutella chocolate for some extra deliciousness.
- Flour – I used all-purpose flour, but if you want gluten-free waffles, you can use the flour mix I put in the notes at the end of this post.
- Baking Powder
- Cocoa Powder
- Unsalted Butter
- Vanilla extract
- Mixing Bowls
- Waffle Maker
How To Make Nutella Waffles
This recipe is pretty straightforward. The not-so-secret ingredient is Nutella (obviously). I added some to the batter and then drizzled it all over the hot waffles.
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt. Stir to combine and set aside.
In a second bowl, combine the wet ingredients: eggs, milk, butter, and vanilla extract. Whisk to combine until frothy.
Add the Nutella and continue whisking until the Nutella is well incorporated. It’s okay if you see some chocolate lumps.
While stirring, add the wet ingredients to the dry. Continue whisking until the mixture is smooth.
Heat the waffle maker and brush both sides with vegetable oil. Scoop the batter onto the waffle maker and close. Cook until you are able to open the waffle maker without any force.
Transfer the waffle to a plate and repeat with the remainder of the batter.
Can I store leftover waffles?
Store the Nutella waffles in an air-tight container or ziplock bag in the fridge for up to a week and in the freezer for up to several months.
Can I store the batter?
Yes! You can store the batter in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week and freeze for up to several months. To use after frozen, thaw to room temperature and use as usual.
How can I avoid Nutella clumps in the batter?
It is okay to have some clumps in your batter, but if you want to avoid that then add the Nutella at the very end after the waffle batter is mixed. This will give the same fudgy texture.
Can I make these waffles gluten free?
If you want gluten-free waffles, use the following recipe to make the flour. Use this mix instead of the all-purpose flour with 1:1 ratio.
- 1 ⅓ Cup Chickpea Flour
- ¾ Cup Almond Flour
- ¼ Cup Potato Starch
- 1 tbsp Baking Powder
- ½ Tsp Salt
- ½ tsp Xanthan Gum
Delicious Nutella Waffles
- 1 ¾ cup all-purpose flour
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- ¼ cup cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 2 large eggs
- ¼ cup nutella plus more for serving
- 1 ¼ cup whole milk
- ¼ cup butter melted
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- In a mixing bowl combine the flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar. Whisk to combine and set aside.
- In a second mixing bowl combine the eggs, Nutella, milk, butter, and vanilla. Whisk to combine until frothy and pour over the flour mix. Whisk to combine until smooth.
- Preheat the waffle iron and spray with non-stick spray. Scoop 1 cup of the batter and pour into the waffle maker. Try not to overfill it because it will make a mess.
- Close the waffle iron and cook for a minute or two. Lift the top and transfer the waffle to a plate. Repeat with the rest of the batter and serve immediately.
- Drizzle with more Nutella.
