We know what you're thinking. Chocolate? Chickpeas? Waffles?! Yes, this sounds like a bizarre combo, but trust us, it works! Chickpeas and tahini are blended with dark chocolate chips, bananas, and vanilla extract to create a soft, creamy batter that eventually turns into sweet, fluffy waffles. The chickpeas add a wonderful boost of protein so grab a few of these, stack 'em up, and top them with fruit, maple syrup, cinnamon, powdered sugar, or whatever you like your waffles to have!
