For the waffles:

  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • 4 tsp sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup J.Olive Butter Olive Oil

For the sauce:

  • 3 oz dark chocolate
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • ⅓ cup coconut cream or regular cream
  • splash of J.Olive Dark Chocolate Balsamic to thin the sauce
  • ice cream, to serve


  1. To make the waffles, place the dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine.
  2. Add in the egg, milk, and J.Olive Butter Olive Oil, and stir together with a wooden spoon. Don’t worry if the batter is lumpy – just don’t overmix.
  3. Bake the waffles on a medium-high setting on your waffle maker – they should be nice and dark golden brown. They will seem soft at first, but a few seconds out of the waffle maker, they will be crispy!
  4. To make the sauce, place all the ingredients into a saucepan and melt together over a very low heat. Thin with a splash of dark chocolate balsamic to taste.
  5. Serve the waffles with the sauce, and a scoop of vanilla (or coconut) ice cream.
