I love the taste of these chocolate chip zucchini waffles! Made with sourdough discard, shredded zucchini, and bits of chocolate, they’re such a fun and tasty breakfast!


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 cups sourdough discard
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup milk or whey
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 1 cup choc chips (semisweet or dark)


  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour through the sea salt). Whisk together until incorporated. In a large glass measuring cup, combine the wet ingredients (sourdough discard, eggs, butter, and milk). Whisk together until smooth.
  2. Pour the wet mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients. Stir well until no dry streaks remain. Stir in the zucchini and chocolate chips. Let stand ten minutes.
  3. Heat your waffle iron, then grease with melted butter or cooking spray.
  4. Pour the waffle batter into the hot, grease waffle iron once the plates are hot. Cook until your waffles are done, according to your preference. Transfer the finished waffles to a plate and keep warm. Repeat making waffles until you run out of batter.
  5. Serve with maple syrup, butter, and/or your favorite waffle toppings.
