Chocolate Chip Sourdough Waffles

These are so tasty, they don't need anything on them, but the kids still like to put a little maple syrup and sometimes whipped cream on top.  Gluten-free sourdough starter is so easy to get started.  One of our favorite sourdough recipes is making waffles, although we love the sourdough breads, too (I've linked all sorts of recipes on my sourdough starter post)  Sourdough waffles, especially chocolate ship sourdough waffles are some of the lightest and most delicious waffles!   Enjoy!

Chocolate Chip Sourdough Waffles
Makes 18 waffles

(My waffle iron makes 6 waffles at a time, and I can fill it 3x)

Mix in a 4 cup tupperware the night before you want your waffles:
1 cup white rice flour
1/2 tsp xanthan gum

Add and mix in, just until combined:
1 cup water (filtered, if your water contains chlorine)
1 cup gluten-free sourdough starter

Put the tupperware lid on tightly, and let rest overnight at room temperature. This mixture will grow naturally overnight due to the yeast, so make sure your container is at least a 4 cup container and can be fully closed.

I find the mixture tends to look like this in the morning - nicely filled with air pockets.

In the morning, preheat your waffle iron.
Mix together in a large bowl:
2 eggs
5 Tbsp oil
1 Tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla bean paste (or extract)
1 tsp cinnamon (optional, but I like the flavor)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Mixture from last night (starter/flour/water)

After mixing, fold in:
1/3 - 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Butter waffle iron lightly each time you use it.  Cook batter in pre-heated waffle iron until nicely browned and crispy.  Remove from waffle iron and place on cooling rack (I do this even when making my non-sourdough starter favorite plain or apple-cinnamon waffles, because it keeps them from ever getting soggy on the bottom, especially if I make extras to freeze).

Delicious served with maple syrup and whipped cream, but easily stand on their own without any toppings at all!  Enjoy!
